There are around 7 million dogs in the UK, while in the US this figure rises above 60 million. With urbanization continuing to increase throughout the UK and US, it is important that owners know how to keep their dogs safe and happy within such busy surroundings. Owning small dogs in the city is becoming an increasingly popular trend - especially in the US - and has created an extremely lucrative market, with some accessories costing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
