Meet the 'world's most stylish dog' whose extensive beauty regime costs a whopping £28,000

With flowing locks a model would be proud of, glamourous three-year-old Afghan Hound AJ Nirvana Battle turns heads wherever he goes.

Meet the 'world's most stylish dog' who has an extensive beauty regime that has cost his doting owner a whopping £28,000.

Glamourous three-year-old Afghan Hound AJ Nirvana Battle turns heads wherever he goes and has flowing locks that a model would be proud of.

His owner Kevin Chan spends six to eight hours bathing his beloved pet, then piles on a number of products, including baby powder and hairspray.

Marketing director Kevin, who lives in Beijing, China, has spent £11,600 to date on grooming equipment and coughs up £525 a month on bathing products to keep his pup's pristine floor-length mane perfectly preened.

The Hong Kong-born 29-year-old spends six to eight hours a week brushing the hairy hound and claims Battle is the most beautiful animal on the globe.

Kevin said: "Since the moment I decided to take Battle home, he was already the most beautiful dog in the world.

"He is a family member now, so I don't mind spending time and money on him.

"I need to bathe him regularly every seven to 10 days - it takes six to eight hours to bathe and groom him every time.

"I do all the grooming myself and have spent about 100,000 CNY (£11,600) to date on grooming equipment.

"I spend another 4,000 to 5,000 CNY (£535) on the best bathing products every month.

"Afghan hounds were born as models and have their own unique characters.

"I don't style him deliberately, I just follow my heart.

"I always tell people I didn't choose the dog but was chosen by him, therefore I have to try my best to give him the best treatment I can."

Every day, Kevin, who adopted Battle two years and eight months ago, sprays a nutritious solution on the pooch's fur to smooth it before letting this sink in for one minute.

Then he uses a bristle brush to ease out any knots in the pooch's mane - using talcum or baby powder to remove tangles.

The 29-year-old has even bought a camera and taken up photography lessons so he can share the best photos of his pampered pet on social media.

Kevin said: "Every day, I spray a special nutritious solution on Battle's fur and comb him. I have to brush him every day, to keep his fur from knotting together.

"When he was younger it would take me two hours a day to groom him, but now I only have to do this for an hour a time.

"The only thing, which is the hardest, is to skilfully comb him - then you can get the nicest shots.

"I began to film and shoot him from the first day I got him because I wanted to keep every single moment.

"I even bought a camera and learned photography so I could record all the best moments.

"When people see Battle, their reaction varies. Some say 'is it a dog or a sheep?', 'it must be very expensive to keep him', or 'you must be very considerate'.

"Others ask what breed he is or say he is so pretty and want to have a photo with him."
