These rather adorable form-fitting outfits, made of lightweight, breathable material, are the brainchild of Tyson Walters, founder of the company Shed Defender. As the owner of a very furry Saint Bernard, named Harley, Walters dreamt up the garment as a fix to a very common problem he had taking car rides with his dog.
"My car was practically ruined. Harley's hair would intertwine in the fabric and not want to ever come out," Walters told The Dodo. "She would shake and the hair would just explode off her and disperse all throughout the car. I looked around on the internet and dog stores, but I couldn't find a solution. So I decided to make one."
With that, the dog leotard was born.
