An Internet site has being set up which offers to kit out dogs in the colours of an owners' favourite football team.

The Soccer Dog-Coat Company offers four different coat sizes, to suit any dog from a ShihTsue to a German Shepherd, in the team colours of most English Premiership teams as well as Scottish clubs like Rangers and Celtic. Prices for the nylon coats, which include a fleece lining, range from £13.99 to £22.99, with £4 extra to have a dog's name printed on the coat.

The site's owner, Peter Birney, said that he thought of the idea around two years ago after dreaming of his dog, Bobby (who is named after the Newcastle manager), kited out in Toon colours. After developing suitable designs and materials, Birney sold coats at local markets prior to taking his business online.

So far around 250 dogs coats and a small number of coats for cats have been sold and the idea seems to be going down well. However, so far only one buyer has taken up the option of fitting out the coat with a 'poop pocket', which would save owners from carrying their dog's turds to the nearest litter bin. ®
