Extra Small Dog Sweater

“Do dogs require sweaters in the winter, or are dogs naturally able to keep themselves warm? Breeds with thick coats generally do not require cold weather protection for short periods of time, whereas short-haired breeds will be more comfortable with a winter sweater and booties.”www.akc.org


“It is important to remember that coats and sweaters on dogs should only be worn if needed when they are outside in very cold weather. Dogs should not wear these clothing items in the house as they can overheat easily. Remember to use your best judgment this winter on whether or not to put a coat on your dog.”www.petsbest.com
