Pet owners dress their pooches in Santa hats

Spot the (real) dogs! Pet owners dress their pooches in Santa hats and smuggle them into an animated Christmas display

  • Four dogs sit in display of life-sized Golden Retriever robots in shopping centre
  • The display, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, also features a Christmas tree and Santa statue
  • Three real Golden Retrievers and Bernese wear Santa hats to blend with display

This is the hilarious moment a group of dogs disguised in Santa hats blend seamlessly in with an animated Christmas display.

The clip, filmed in a shopping centre in Sao Paulo, Brazil, captures a group of well-behaved pooches as they sit beneath a Christmas tree.

But all is not what it seems at first glance – as only a handful of the festive pups are real.

Three Golden Retrievers and a Bernese Mountain Dog sit within a sea of life-sized robot retrievers which are being used as festive decorations.

The four real dogs, all wearing Santa hats to match the animated figures, sit as still as statues within the pooch-inspired display.

Around ten mechanical dogs of different sizes move their heads beneath the tree – which is decorated with smaller golden retriever figures also wearing hats.  

The camera then pans the display as the dogs sit patiently to show a red sofa on which yet another Golden Retriever figure is perched.

A statue of Father Christmas is also present in the display – holding a bouquet of red flowers above a wheelbarrow full of the same.

The filmer said: ‘A group of friends who own Golden Retrievers, along with a friend who owns a Bernese, were in the mall to see the Christmas decorations with the Golden’s tree. 

‘In order to participate in the “Golden’s Christmas”, the Bernese was disguised as a Golden Retriever as well.’
