German dogs get their own Lederhosen

Dogs in the German state of Bavaria can now blend in with the local Alpine scenery wearing the same traditional attire worn by their owners — lederhosen.

Dogwear designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who also makes Tyrolean mountain hats and rainwear for canines, said the leather outfits were best suited for dachshunds and other small dogs but also looked good on poodles, spaniels and boxers.

“There are lederhosen for the dogs and Dirndls for the bitches,” she said on Wednesday.
