11 decadent ways to treat your pet

With Aussies spending a massive $743 million a year on our pets, we look at some of the most indulgent ways to show your four-legged friend you care.

It's official, we're pet crazy. According to new data from the Commonwealth Bank, Aussies are splashing out $743 million a year on our pets - and that's a whopping 90 per cent up on what we were spending just two years ago.

With the research showing we are spoiling Rover more frequently - purchases from pet stores have more than doubled in just two years - the most indulgent owners are aged between 51-60 (accounting for 23 per cent of the spend) and are more likely to be from NSW (who account for $231 million of the nation's total pet payouts).

But it’s not just a stock of exotic biccies and some chew toys we’re buying for our pets, we’re also talking clothes, houses, hotel rooms and luxury parties. We've rounded up some of the most extravagant ways to show your four-legged friends you care.
