5 Cute Dog Sweater Trends For Stylish Pups

Here you’ll find sweaters for small dogs, medium dogs, and some bigger dogs too – with designs by small dog brands and makers from the USA, Australia and beyond.

Some styles we have tried ourselves, so we can vouch for their quality first-hand.

Let’s see which dog sweater trend you and your pooch love most!

Tips to help you choose a dog sweater

When it comes to picking the right dog sweater, it’s all about striking a balance between style and comfort. 

Materials: Consider the right material for your dog and their coat. Wool is cozy, but may require extra TLC. Whereas acrylic or wool-blend options offer warmth and softness without all the fuss.

Measurements: Give your pup the fashionista treatment and measure around the neck, chest, and length. Don’t forget the leg openings, which should allow for some wiggle room (you want a snug fit,  but not too tight!)

Ease of dressing: Go for sweaters with enough stretch to easily slip on and off, or with secure doggy-safe closures. 

Style: When it comes to colours and styles, it’s always fun to opt for a cute dog sweater that suits your pup’s personality, the season or your favorite colour!
