Keeping fashion aside the question is do dogs really need clothing? The fact is that yes, many dogs do need clothing in the cold weather. Much of whether your dog requires clothing in the winter months will depend on how warm your dog can stay based on breed, size, and age.

Of course, short, thin hair is not the only prerequisite for outer clothing. Dogs that tend to have short-cropped hair. Also, older dogs with weaker immune systems and dogs with diseases that impair hair typically need an extra source for warmth, and this can be easily provided by a sweater or jacket, even indoors.

Conversely, larger dogs with dense hair coats do not have a need for additional insulation and would be very uncomfortable if they were forced to wear outer clothing, particularly to the point of physically overheating. Their fur is already genetically designed to protect them from extreme winter temperatures. For example, the Siberian husky, Malamute, and Saint Bernard breeds are all excellent examples of dogs that are perfectly suited to cold temperatures.
