Dog Sweaters keep them warm...

Dogs are part of our family. They keep us company, wait for us to come home from work and are always there for us.

For years many people have dressed up their dogs in costumes, shirts and sweaters. But now there are so many different styles of sweaters and shirts for our little pals. Even though dogs are born with a coat of fur to keep them warm sometimes they need a little extra help.

Dog sweaters and fleeces coats are great for bundling up your dog and sending them outside on a cold day. Dog sweaters are a great thing for outside walks and sleeping in at night time on the cold floor. Older dogs and short hair dogs are especially in need of extra warmth in the winter time and a sweater or fleece coat may be just the thing.

When selecting a sweater or coat for a dog make sure to check for the correct fit in order for the dog to be comfortable. Before buying or ordering a sweater measure your dog to ensure the fit is correct so that your dogs outdoor adventures are as fun as they can be.

Sweater Styles for Dogs

Dogs sweaters come in a variety of sizes, colors and styles. One of the newest and most stylish sweaters is the fisherman sweater.

For years many of us enjoyed putting on our warm fisherman sweater in the winter time. Now dogs can too. The sweaters are 100% wool and are hand knitted. The colors vary from white, red, and green. They are sure to keep your dog warm.

Other sweaters for dogs include stripped sweaters, sock monkey sweaters, fair isle dog sweater, plaid dog sweater, sweaters in fashion colors and many more. There are sweaters for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and other holiday fashions.

If your dog is uncomfortable in a sweater try out a fleece coat made out of soft warm fleece. Another option is a coat made out of cotton or a sweatshirt for your dog.

If you are looking for something a little lighter try out a soft t-shirt material for your pet to wear. If you can knit or crochet you can easily find free patterns online for make a dog sweater.

Halloween is one of the best times of the year to dress your pet in a cute costume. With the large variety of dog costumes available in stores and online there is sure to be something for your pet.

Some of our favorite pet costumes are the witch costume cape which can be reversed to make a devil cape also. These are great for photos and parties. Ladybugs are popular right now and dressing your little dog in a ladybug costume is sure to be a hit.

      We once had a short haired little dog which we dressed in the winter-time with a sweater. She loved it! Most of our other dogs never needed one. I know that some people love dressing their dogs in costumes and they have cute selections for choices of apparel.
