People have found ways to demostrate their wealth via consumption in ways such as through clothing, automobiles, homes and so forth. Now, we can add “executive protection dogs” to the mix.
These dogs range between $40,000 to $60,000, with some fetching as high as $230,000 or even $400,000, which is not chump change for most people. But that kind of money is chump change for the truly wealthy, “who like the security — and status — provided by a dog with the right credentials.” If you’re gonna protect yourself, why not drop thousands of dollars on something that can also provide companionship to you? After all, dogs are man’s best friends.
