Who knew that Fido could be such a fashionista? Apparently, a new (and hilarious) style craze is coming to canines' closets – the doggy leotard.

"Harley's hair would intertwine in the fabric and not want to ever come out," Walters said. "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."

The company's website claims the snug bodysuits, priced at $44.99, not only cut down on dander but also ease anxiety, keep dogs warm and clean, protect against bugs and cover wounds.
