The 'Simple Life' star - who recently gave birth to daughter Harlow, her first child with fiance Joel Madden - was out shopping for Joel's birthday present in West Hollywood's Resurrection boutique when the incident reportedly took place.
A shop insider told the National Enquirer magazine: "We let Nicole bring her dog into the shop because she is such a huge celebrity, but we thought she would have more control over them. Her dog used a blue frock as a toilet. As soon as we saw what had happened, we told her she had to get them dry cleaned or buy them.
"Because they cost $1,000 each she took them to be cleaned, but we don't know if we can sell them now. They aren't the same."
Last year, it was claimed Nicole was planning to dress her pet dogs up for her wedding ceremony.
The 26-year-old star is believed to have purchased a tuxedo for her Shih Tzu Honeychild and a bridesmaid dress for her Pomeranian pooch Foxxy Cleopatra.
