The festival was originally created at the pet friendly mall to celebrate the special bond between pets and their owners but has recently taken on a show stopping twist.

Dogs can be seen arriving on extravagant floats and are donned with feathers, diamantes and bizarre doggy accessories.

Ian Maclean, who was at the show and captured the footage, said: “The cats and dogs were really glammed up from head to paw as they hit the runway.

“I was intrigued by the amount of effort and expense these owners spend on their pets.

“The competition is fierce and pets certainly lead very lavish lifestyles.

“Some of the four-legged beauty contestants got stage fright, overwhelmed by the crowd and froze halfway down the runway.

“Often the load of accessories and decorations was just too much.
