Naturally, you’ll want to look for a dog hoodie that’s cute and cozy, but the best options out there also stand up to wear, tear, and bad weather. When shopping for one, consider its practical side, too. Which will keep your dog warm as temperatures drop? It’s an especially important question for short-haired and single-coated breeds (hello Bulldogs, Vizslas, Greyhounds, and Chihuahuas).
The Basics of Dog Hoodies
Measure Your Pet: Both the manufacturers and many reviewers of dog hoodies strongly recommend measuring your pet before purchasing a warming layer such as a sweatshirt or hoodie. Pay careful attention to the sizing charts and consider how the garment might change, shrink, or alter its shape after its first wash (or a series of them). Getting the right fit is important for your dog’s safety and comfort—and for you to end up with a product you’ll actually use.
Try It On: The first time you put a dog hoodie or jacket on your pet, go slowly and use plenty of treats to give your pet positive associations with the clothing item. If your dog is scared or uncomfortable in clothing, don’t force the issue. Consult your vet if you’re concerned about your dog’s body temperature.
We’ve rounded up the comfiest hoodie options for dogs with a list of sweatshirts to suit everyone, from princess-pink fans to buffalo plaid-ers. Which one is perfect for your pet?
