For some dogs, a sweater is a necessity in cold weather, including:
- Small "tea cup" dogs
- Hairless breeds
- Breeds with slim bodies and short hair
- Older dogs
Tiny dogs need protection from frigid temperatures. When venturing out on winter days with your little pup be sure they are kept warm in a sweater or cozy in a Dog Carrier Sling Bag. Same for small hairless or short haired breeds like the Chinese Crested or Chihuahua.
Larger breeds with slim bodies and short hair, including the Miniature Pinchur, Whippet and Greyhound, may also need an extra layer for warmth when out for a walk in the cold or snow.
Older dogs of any breed may benefit from the warmth of a sweater once the temperature starts to drop. This includes dogs with a weakened immune system and those suffering from arthritis.

No matter the reason, there are many types of sweaters, dresses and jackets to choose from. Choose the style that best fits your pups personality and style preference. Make sure the sweater is sized correctly for easy dressing and is the correct warmth for the weather to avoid overheating.
