Oh darling, doggy sweaters are at the height of fashion these days, don’t you know, and many dog owners won’t even consider leaving the house without their precious pooch looking like they have just stepped out of the cover page of Vogue magazine. They are a great accessory for your dog to show off their unique style and get down with all the latest cool doggy trends. On a more practical note, dog sweaters are an absolute must-have for smaller sized pooches and those with short or fine hair, particularly throughout the winter months.
Some breeds find it difficult to keep themselves insulated well enough when the cold weather kicks in and need some extra protection from the elements. A sweater can make such a significant difference when the temperature drops, helping your dog to retain much-needed body heat, whether out for a walk or having a snooze around the house. At the end of the day, who doesn’t love being warm and cozy? Your dog’s wellbeing is vitally important and after reading this you may now be considering having a little doggy sweater shopping spree for your canine friend. And boy, do we have a treat for you!
Check out these top 10 best doggy sweaters below. We couldn’t believe how cool some of these are!

I’m not sure I even have the words to say about our top 10 spot and then I realized that I’m only at the beginning of the guide and should probably continue! How cool is this dog sweater? Unless you have been living under a rock, like forever, you will definitely be familiar with the Adidas sports brand. This dog sweater is an all so quirky spin-off of the brand that will have your pooch looking like they are ready to run their first doggy marathon.

A massive choice of colors are available to suit any taste and a whopping 13 different sizes available, making this product ideal for any breed. With iconic recognizable branding and made with premium materials, this durable doggy sweater definitely does take some beating.
Although the Adidog is a bit more substantial than most of the other dog sweaters on our list, being in tracksuit form and all, we love that it has been designed with an easy fit in mind. Button closures at the front of the sweater make this super easy to slip on and slip off your pooch, making for a really comfortable, secure fit.
- Stylish and a timeless classic with recognizable branding.
- Easy to put on and take off for effortless fitting.
- A great value for money product.

We love the leash ring attachment on the back of the harness and think this is a great additional feature. The leash ring conveniently allows you to take your doggo out for walks without the need to fit a harness in addition to the sweater, keeping your dog much more comfortable. Attach your regular leash to the ring and away you go. Simple!
Easy to Clean
Nothing makes us happier than an item that can be safely put into the washing machine without the need of having to stand there washing by hand like something from the early 18th century!

- Leash ring attachment to avoid the need for harnesses on walks.
- Machine washable for convenience and time-saving.

Great for smaller dogs
Designed specifically for pups and smaller breeds of dogs, your Chihuahua, Boston Terrier, Bichon Frise will have a close, comfy fit ensuring they stay warm, happy, and healthy. There’s nothing more unstylish than a pooch drowning in an oversized sweater!

4. Pawz Road
The ultimate lumberjack sweatshirt! If your doggo is looking for a hip design and a cool choice of colors, this is a great choice of sweatshirt for them to show off to all their friends with. A cute plaid design, that comes in 6 different sizes and an inner layer for protection against the elements provides added warmth. The Pawz Road is a real head turner!
Like with any human hoodie the Pawz Road comes with a hood that is fully detachable, making this a very versatile sweatshirt. Keep the hood up for those much colder days and nights or allow your pooch to be free and completely remove the hood for comfort, which prevents it from flapping around in the wind.
We love a product that has additional features to the norm and the Pawz Road doesn’t disappoint us one bit. The sweater provides a discrete velcro pocket that is absolutely ideal for storing dog treats and toys of the smaller variety. We don’t find this feature on many other products so we applaud the Pawz Road for thinking outside the box and providing added convenience.
- Detachable hood for versatility.
- The small pocket that can be used to store treats.
- Inner lining for ultimate protection and warmth.
- The pocket doesn’t close fully so you may want to be mindful of overloading it with too many items.
5. Chilly Dog
This is quite possibly one of the cutest dog sweaters we’ve seen in a while. Made by a U.S retail store in downtown Philadelphia, Chilly Dog has designed their sweaters with the perfect fit in mind. They are quite possibly one of the warmest sweaters on the market right now and we can’t help, but think they truly are the real deal.
We just can’t get enough of an ethically sourced product. Made with 100% wool and hand-knitted by artisan knitters, this fair trade sweater is produced by knitters in healthy workplaces, which enables them to support a better lifestyle in their small villages by being paid a fair living wage. We believe the world would be a much better place if all companies followed these guidelines.
Sizes for all
The great thing about the Chilly Dog Boyfriend sweater is, it caters for all sizes of dog’s, with 8 different sizes to choose from it doesn’t matter whether you are buying for a puppy or a Great Dane you are guaranteed to find the perfect fit. Made with 100% wool, there is also an element of stretch to the sweater which provides a much better, snug fit for your pooch.

Zips, zips, and more zips! In fact this sweater has so many zips we don’t know what to do with them all! A 2-way zipper at the top of the sweater is ideal for those dogs that still need to wear a harness when out on walks making it really easy to combine the two. Another zipper is also provided at the neck area which is great for adjusting and getting that all-important snug fit.

We can’t get enough of the look and feel of this sweater and it absolutely screams quality. Made with interlocking wool blended into yarn, the soft and smooth texture will be most comforting to your canine friend. The material also doesn’t curl with movement, creating a nice, well-fitted look.
This is always a very handy feature to any dog sweater and I can’t believe more of them don’t have this. Harnesses will almost always need to be worn underneath when out on walks and the Blueberry offers a convenient hole at the top of the sweater which exposes the harness ring, meaning you can easily attach your leash.

The Expawlorer is a basic design with various colors and sizing options and great value for money, making it accessible to all. Made from 100% polyester fleece and ideal for puppies, in particular, we can’t see where you can go wrong with this doggy sweater.
After reviewing the sizing carefully we have decided that this is a great option for puppies and very small dogs, but wouldn’t be suitable for any bigger breeds. The over the head design works very well for pups and keeps them super warm and cozy.
Ideal for spring and autumn
This is a great middle of the road sweater. It isn’t too thick that it will make your dog overheat during the hotter months but equally isn’t too thin and flimsy that you doggo won’t be able to stay warm and cozy during the colder months. We like to think this sweater covers the middle ground.
- Middleweight sweater. Not too thick and not too thin.
- Handy pocket to carry small items for convenience.
