After researching several dog clothing options, I found that the Django Dachshund Puffer Dog Jacket to be the best fit for our extra long, extra short friends.  For my Dachshund, it is the only comfortable coat he is Willing to wear. 

Do Dachshunds Get Cold Easily?

Most Dachshunds have thin fur, which doesn’t provide much protection or warmth in the cold winter weather.  As doxies get older, they actually can have more trouble regulating their body temperature.  So, Yes, they do need some extra warmth when going outside for their daily walks.

As a Dachshund owner, I know that dachshunds really don’t like the rain, snow, wind, or cold winter weather.  All dachshunds enjoy being in a warm and cozy home.

Do Dachshunds Need Sweaters?

Yes, if you live in an area where it gets chilly outside, it is recommended that your doxie have a coat or sweater to keep them warm and dry.  Dachshunds have less body insulation than thicker-coated dog breeds.

Dachshund Clothing Features to Look For:

Did you know they make winter coats, warm sweaters, and raincoats that will fit your dachshund?  There are many important factors to consider when choosing the right clothing for your dog (especially your dachshund).

It is important to keeping your little dachshund warm, protected, and visible with reflective material when out for a walk.

  • Quickly getting dressed: Dachshund coats and sweaters need to be easy to put on.  Dachshunds don’t mess around, if they don’t want it on, they will give you a hard time.

  • Comfort:  Will the Dachshund keep the clothing on?  That all depends on their comfort level.  I put a shark costume on my dachshund Reno, and he refused to move while he was in it.  I couldn’t stop laughing, he was adorable, but he wasn’t happy and refused to move.

  • Durability:  Some questions to ponder: Will the Dog chew and rip up the nice new doggie clothing?  Will it get ruined if they have to stop and go potty outside while on their walk?

  • Visibility:  Does the clothing have reflectors or reflective material on it to help others see your proud dachshund coming?

  • Clean up:  Can the Dachshund clothing easily be cleaned up in the washing machine?
