Dog sweaters

Recommended Posts

These are some dog sweaters I made this past winter for one of our outside dogs. She gets cold so now she has a whole wardrobe of sweaters. I purchased and downloaded this pattern from e-pattern central if I recall correctly.

She wears each one well too.

I love the bright colors, they would show up great in our New England snowstorms!

 

Thanks for the reminder, It's a good time to start in on doggie coats. The cold weather will be here before we know it.

Perfect. An outside dog in the winter? Brrrrrr. She needs all the sweaters she can get.

She looks like an older girl... :( Isn't there some way to get her inside? Dogs need shelter as much as people do, and for the same reasons: protection from cold/heat, access to clean water (birds can and do foul water left outside for dogs), and simply being together.

 

She looks like a Beagle cross of some kind, with a hound coat--no protection from the cold to speak of, even with sweaters. Her legs and feet, tail and ears will still be very cold.

 

Does she have arthritis? Problems walking? Medical care? If there are $ problems, ask your local humane society (usually different from animal control) whether they're aware of any local programs/vets who assist in such situations.

 

Wanting the best for you and the doggie,

She is older. We usually have mild winters here. Last Winter we brought her into the house on colder nights. She refuses to stay in the house during the day--scratching, whining, hollering, etc. to get out so she wears the sweaters during the day. She has a flood light (not a heat lamp) in her house for the nights that it doesn't get below freezing. The light makes it about 10 degrees warmer inside her house than it is outside (we have a thermometer inside her house that we monitor). She doesn't seem to have any arthritis. She gets around well and is healthy according to her yearly vet check. We also bought her one of those disks that you warm in the microwave, can't remember the official name of them but they put off safe heat for about 8 to 10 hours and it is placed inside her bed. No, we don't have money problems and yes, she is well taken care of.

Forgot to also add, we change her water twice a day. She has a 25 ft. X 50 ft. lot that she runs in during the day and at night she is in a 10 X10 with a gabled tarp roof. The birds can't poop in her water as it has overhead protection. When she came to us as a pup she was malnourished and we discovered that she had Parvo. We spent about $400 on her and she pulled through that. She is 11 years old and has always been well taken care of with regular vet visits and lots of TLC.
