If you’re one of those rough and tough dog owners who think that dog sweaters are only fit for Maltipoos and Cavachons, we’re here to tell you — you’re dead wrong! Many areas of the US are seeing record low temperatures thanks to the dreaded polar vortex. Now more than ever, dog sweaters are a must. 

Even if you’re lucky enough to live in Southern California where jackets are optional, your pup may not be made for cooler temps, depending on their breed. Does doggo have fur for days? All it takes is one trip to a scissor-happy groomer — and suddenly, they’re shaking like a Chihuahua!
