English term or phrase: dogs in drag
I've got some lines to translate about the Doo Dah Parade in Pasadena, USA. In this parade, there are various performers and one of them is "dogs in drag". Can someone tell me what this is exactly?

verkleidete Hunde
Explanation:
wearing "drag" usually refers to gays who dress up as women. So dogs in drag would just be dogs dressed up as human beings, which for simplicity sake I would translate as "verkleidete Hunde".
