How do you stop dogs shedding their hairs all over the house? You kit them out with a skin-tight leotard, of course.

A US company has created a range of designer gear for pampered pooches - a cross between 1980s aerobics gear and a superhero outfit.

Tyson Walters, founder of Shed Defender, said: "I had this huge Saint Bernard, called Harley, and I just couldn't control her shedding.

"No matter how much I brushed and groomed her, she still left tumbleweeds of hair everywhere.

"I looked around on the internet and dog stores and I couldn't find a solution to my product, so I decided to make one."

Mr Walters said he spent four years developing prototypes before he was happy with the finished product.

He said: "People always take pictures of my own dog Harley when she's wearing it and ask where they can get one. Hot pink is one of our hottest selling colours, it's fashionable."

He says leotards are lightweight, eco-friendly and completely safe and comfortable for all dogs.

Mr Walters has got another idea up his sleeve - outfits in the colours of sports teams.
