As a result I am once again searching the internet for the very best dog Christmas outfits, and so I thought I would compile a few of my favourites here!

Every dog wants to be an Elf at Christmas time, especially dogs called Dobby! This cute little outfit comes with a hat and can be seen modelled by Dobby in his festive photo above.
