Dogs are probably one of the best species on this earth, but they come at a price – hair. There’s nothing more annoying than going round your mate’s house, only to end up covered head to toe in mounds of border collie fluff (as cute as they are).

Luckily though, someone’s come up with a solution to this first world problem and that is a dog leotard. Yes, a guy named Tyson Walters has created the ridiculous looking ‘Shed Defender’ as a way to overcome this issue while also making your dog look absolutely hilarious. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
I needed a solution to control Harley’s [his dog’s] hair; it was everywhere.
I had tumble weeds of her hair on my hardwood floors. My car was close to ruined because of all the hair intertwined in the fabric. There was nothing I could do, just brush and brush and brush, and yet that still wasn’t enough.
I came up with the idea and had my mom started sewing the Shed Defender; needless to say, it was time to hire a professional. I took the next step in hiring a seamstress and started making prototypes.
The outcome has evolved into a flawless design that is not only effective, but also allows for a comfortable fit for the dog. It is now finally complete and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
There’s even a tutorial on how to put on and take off the ‘Shed Defender’:
Lol. Harley seems like a proper chiller. If you too would like a solution to your dog’s relentless shedding, then you can buy one of these bad boys for $44.99 plus $18 shipping to the UK. Probably worth it just for the pictures.
