There’s no doubt about it: Chihuahuas are tiny dogs. That may make them cute and easy to care for, but it also means they’re quick to lose body heat. If you live somewhere warm your Chihuahua may always be at a comfortable temperature, but if you’re in a cooler region or in a place where it rains a lot, it’s worth considering Chihuahua clothing for your pet. Some Chihuahuas love the attention and easily get used to wearing a sweater or other clothes. Others only want a sweater or jacket to go out into cool air or rainy weather. Good clothes for Chihuahuas leave them free to move about. It’s good to avoid garments with parts that can get caught on furniture or other things as the dog goes by.
Besides making a fashion statement, some clothes your Chihuahua is comfortable in may help control anxiety. This doesn’t help all Chihuahuas, but in some situations, a nice, snug shirt or sweater may help keep a worried pet calm.
