It’s about to be ‘cute dog fall’ with these adorable pet sweaters
The autumnal TikTok trend is now reaching our pets
While it’s not quite time to throw on your dog’s winter coat yet, “cute dog fall” is the perfect excuse to go shopping for the best dog sweaters. If your dog needs a little extra something to keep them cozy as the temperatures drop — or maybe you just want to take the opportunity to dress them up — sweaters and dog hoodies offer a little bit of warmth and a whole lot of style. It’s the “cozy girl fall” TikTok trend, only for dogs.
Do dogs need sweaters?
Not every dog needs a sweater, hoodie or coat during the colder months. In fact, some pet owners enjoy buying their dog sweaters simply because they’re cute and stylish. Dog sweaters can make for adorable photos, but unless your dog is small, a senior dog or has extremely short fur, most dogs don’t need one.
However, some dogs may need an extra boost of warmth once the temperatures get chillier. These pups likely need the help of an additional layer in the dead of winter rather than fall, but still, a sweater can come in handy. When looking to buy a dog sweater, consider the material it’s made from, how warm it is, the style and if it slips on easily.
