You could say this is a shop for pets that roam.
Norwich's Jarrold department store has just launched a new section selling country attire for designer dogs.
The new pet boutique is open for well behaved four-legged customers that want to be decked out like their well-heeled owners.
One of the country canine must-haves is, for example, a Barbour dog jacket, available in waxed, tartan or quilted for £39.95.
Or, for the distinguished doggie in your life, there's a range of Sophie Allport neckerchiefs for dogs including special sized ones for Dachshunds, for £10.

A Sophie Allport collar and lead in teal completes the look from £10 and toys aimed at the country dog come in pheasant shapes from £12.
John Adams, general manager and senior trading director, Jarrold, said: “Last year we trialled welcoming dogs in-store and we’ve really enjoyed seeing so many of our four-legged friends.
- 1 The Chase star's tribute to contestant who died in Norfolk house fire
- 2 Two Norfolk gastropubs named among best in country
- 3 Part of A47 closed due to crash
- 4 Huge blast proof bunker with acre of land for sale by auction
- 5 Have 'murder hornets' been found in Norfolk?
- 6 New women's only fitness studio to open in Norwich
- 7 Caroline Flack's mum to open 'grief café' in Norfolk
- 8 Two people injured in A47 crash
- 9 School bus drivers 'risked children's lives' with illegal long shifts
- 10 ‘Can you let me off?’ pleads driver doing 90mph in 50mph zone
"So it seemed only right that they can enjoy their own boutique. We’re delighted to launch our collection for dogs including clothing from Barbour, accessories from Sophie Allport and healthy dog treats from Denzels. We look forwards to welcoming owners and their friends.”
Giving the new boutique a sniff around were Warwick, a King Charles spaniel puppy, nearly 10 weeks-old, owned by the store's buyer administration assistant Lauren Eves and a black labrador Hattie, owned by Laura Sutton.
Hattie was fitted for a Barbour jacket while Warwick took a liking to one of the designer doggie beds - and, finding shopping way too exhausting, fell asleep.
Ms Eves said Warwick was a new addition to her family. "We got him a Sophie Allport coat although it's a bit big for him and he loves the beds."
Luke Osborne, manager of the pet boutique, said: "We've only just opened the pet boutique but we've had such a positive reaction, it's really nice to be able to offer something different from the rest of the high street."
It's not the first time Jarrold has welcomed in four legged friends.
