A DOG lover and her pet pooch have launched a luxury boutique for chic cats and canines.

Charlotte Ronald, 21, and her puppy — a Tibetan terrier crossed with a Pom called Arnold — have opened Wonder Paws, on Bolton Place, in Ulverston.

Miss Ronald, of Barrow, set up the business after finding a niche in the pet accessory industry.

“We’ve got lots of pets at home, cats and two other dogs,” she said. “When I got Arnold I couldn’t find gifts or accessories for him.

“People really love their pets in Ulverston and I thought I would create a store that could offer all the luxuries for dogs and cats that I struggled to find for my own.”
