Historically Accurate Civil War Uniforms for Dogs

Well, technically speaking, dogs on either side usually did not wear regulation uniforms. But if you want your pooch to look like a Union or Confederate soldier with the precision that a Civil War reenactor would appreciate, then Stephanie Honodel can outfit your dog.

Honodel has been making custom pet clothing for 15 years. About 5 years ago, a Civil War reenactor asked her to make a Confederate general’s uniform for his miniature pinscher. Word about her work spread and she’s since made hundreds of Civil War dog costumes. To accommodate her business, she’s just opened a shop called the Dogs of Gettysburg, which is helpfully located near the battlefield site.

If you don’t have a dog, you can still throw your pet back in time. Honodel also makes costumes for cats, pigs, tortoises, and snakes. You can read more about her work at the Huffington Post.
