Long gone are the days when pets needed the most common collar and leash. Today, fashionable brand companies engaged in tailoring elegant wardrobe elements create their collections for both people and our smaller brothers. It is worth noting that clothing for dogs is used not only as decoration but also to protect against harsh weather conditions. Small dogs, like Yorkshire Terriers or Chihuahua, especially need this. Therefore, it makes sense to choose the right warm clothes in our small dog sweater review.
What pet shops offer to protect dogs from the cold
Like many modern stores, Pet Store offers
a huge selection of glamorous, stylish, funny t-shirts, body shirts, overalls, vests, sweatshirts, sweaters, jackets, socks, and boots. All products are certified and come with a quality guarantee, so you need not worry, your baby will be more than comfortable.
Measurement and sizing
Before buying clothes for dogs, we recommend that you take the time to such an important process as taking measurements, as products are provided individually for each breed.
- So, to correctly determine the size, you should, firstly, measure the length of the back: the dog should stand straight. The measurement is carried out with a flexible centimeter, starting from the withers and ending with the base of the tail.
- Secondly, measure the chest circumference, i.e. the widest part of the chest, located behind the front paws. Add another 3-5 cm to the resulting volume so that the thing does not fit, but is slightly free and does not interfere with the dog when walking.
- Thirdly, it is important to know the exact size of the neck. Note that neck girth is usually compared to collar parameters. Try to choose a product that will not “strangle” the watchdog with its narrow neck. Well, now you have all the information you need and you can easily go shopping.
How to choose a sweater or costume for a small dog
An equally important point is the purpose of such an acquisition. For example, you are looking for warm clothes for small dogs in our online store to provide full-fledged grooming during cold weather, then you can consider knitted vests, sweaters, jackets on the fleece. Also a great option – shirts that fit tightly and prevent tangling of the coat.
If you just want to make a nice gift for your pet, dress him in a bright suit, elegant dress or a fluffy skirt with a hat. Interestingly, this tiny wardrobe is made of durable, environmentally friendly materials, taking into account the anatomical structure of the eared mod. All clothes comply with the latest fashion trends and are available in a variety of colors.
Don’t forget about paws
Taking care of the dog, protecting it from hypothermia, colds, cuts and other troubles, also think about the paws that need special care. In summer – hot asphalt, in autumn – swamp and puddles, and in winter – prickly snow. And, given the fact that the “wet nose” cannot fail to examine all areas of grass and bushes, damage from glasses is not excluded.
Especially for such situations, designers have developed shoes for dogs with a special pattern that takes the shape of a foot and does not interfere with comfortable movement. This accessory will become a real solution to the problem and protect the limbs from wounds and cuts
