DO DOGS NEED A DOG SWEATER?
A dog sweater is not simply an unnecessary dog accessory. A comfortable dog sweater provides not only warmth but also prevents dogs from contracting a cold or joint stiffness in winter.
Small dogs, short-haired dogs, rescue dogs from warm climates or sometimes also long-haired dogs or mutt dogs who possesses little to none undercoat, especially need a dog sweater when the temperatures cool down.
They have the tendency to be more susceptible to cold and moisture that they sometimes also become drenched to the bone.
Also for city dogs that mostly are kept on a leash, do not have the access to running around freely to keep their bodies warm. Especially whilst waiting at stop lights or whilst accompanying their owners shopping, they tend to start shivering, freeze and shake. Active dogs however can also benefit from wearing dog clothing. After rounds of wrestling and running around, they also lose a lot of heat quickly in colder weather and can therefore become more susceptible to injuries and illnesses.
A source of warmth in winter is very important especially for older dogs and sick dogs. Diseases such as arthritis in dogs, hip dysplasia in dogs and or other joint problems in dogs prevent dogs from walking as far and as fast as before. Especially where there are moisture and cold the pain tolerance is therefore lower, which can then lead to further tension in muscles and injury to tendons or ligaments. A well fitted dog coat helps keep senior dogs or older dogs warm and dry.
DOG SWEATER FOR SMALL DOGS
Small dogs have the disadvantages of being small especially in the rain, snow and cold. Through their shorter legs and proximity to the ground are they more prone to coldness than the average dog. A dog’s belly is especially sensitive to the cold and therefore the vital organs of smaller dog need extra protection. For small dog breeds we highly recommend a dog sweater, once the temperatures reach below 20° degree Celsius.

HOW TO MEASURE DOGS FOR CLOTHING INCLUDING SWEATERS
With a large extensive range of dog coat sizes from small to large, it is not easy to know which size to choose for your dog. The best tip is to heavily rely on the weight of your dog before one considers the length of the dog coat, measured from the bottom of the neck to the beginning of the tail. Whereas although the chest area is an equally important guide to determine the overall size, the waistband allows you to easily fine-tune the fit with the help of the Velcro fasteners.
For a better demonstration, here is a video guide on how to measure your dog for a coat.
