Wondering what to get your pampered pooch this Christmas?

An RSPCA survey found that animal lovers spend about £300 million pampering their pets at Christmas.

It also found that nine out of ten owners (91%) buy their pet a present for Christmas, with almost a fifth (18%), admitting they spend more on their pet than their mother-in-law.
