This pet store sells $650 fur coats for dogs

When wealthy dog owners want to pamper their furry friends, they bring them to Canine Styles — a high-end pet boutique in New York City that sells everything from $650 fur coats for dogs to $6,500 Alligator-skin animal carriers.

Manhattan's "oldest and finest" doggy swag shop is featured on a recent episode of CNBC's "Secret Lives of the Super Rich."

Established in 1959, Canine Styles is known for its pampered pooch must-haves like "Chewy Vuiton" and "Cartiarf" squeak toys and a full line of apparel and accessories that would make most humans envious.

"Canine Styles offers two collections every year… we go out and find fabrics — whether it's Marc Jacobs or Ralph Lauren — and then, we take those and turn them into coats and bags," owner Mark Drendel tells the show.

Pet purchases are big business: Americans will spend $70 billion on their pets in 2017, a $2.6 billion increase over last year, according to not-for-profit American Pet Products Association. But Canine Styles is only for the well-pawed.

Over the years, some of the world's biggest A-listers have shopped for their pets — from Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey to the late Elizabeth Taylor.

"Whenever Elizabeth Taylor was in town, we'd always send a brand new dog bed and a bag of treats to her hotel," says Drendel. The lucky recipient was her Maltese terrier, Sugar.

Aside from its grooming services, the boutique sells a colorful assortment of Swiss-made collar and leash sets for $425, and for the winter months, $165 cashmere sweaters and hand-cut shearling and fur coats (think rabbit fur dyed in a leopard print) that cost hundreds of dollars.

"If we have a customer who wants their dog to match their fur coat, we will… have [a matching coat] custom-made for the dog," says Drendel.

For those willing to drop even more dough — $5,000 to $35,000 — an owner can commission a hand-painted pooch portrait.
