My 15 lb. mix loves this sweater. He wants it on all the time. It has not worn well. The stitching under one arm has completely unraveled, I stitched it back together but don't have high hopes for longevity. My dog, though small, plays with an 81 lb. dog and he is quite robust in his play so I'm not sure he has been an ideal candidate for this sweater. It is cute and have had many compliments.
This sweater is warm and cozy. The yarn is soft, not itchy, like wool sometimes can be. It fits my dog well, although it is a bit long for him. The end of the sweater hangs over his rear a few inches, but this doesn't affect the functionality. For reference, my dog is a barrel chested pit bull, and measures approximately 27" from base of neck to tail, neck and chest circumference are 19" and 31", respectively. He weighs 70 lbs. I ordered an XXL to accommodate his large chest. An XL may have worked, but there were no measurements referencing chest size. It would be nice if this was added to the sizing chart. The sweater may shrink a bit when washed (wool usually does shrink). I have not washed it yet, so I cannot say. I have read several reviews containing complaints regarding the lack of a hole for a leash, but this is no trouble for me. My dogs collar easily sits forward, in front of the neck of the sweater, and I can clip his leash on without any problem. In fact, I have another sweater for him with a hole, but never use it, as its easier than trying to thread his leash through the hole.
These sweaters are very well made. I love them so much, this is my 2nd review! Excellent quality, and you can't beat the organic wool for warmth and water resiliency. I recommend machine wash gentle and line dry, then stretch to shape. The extra effort is worth it.
I ordered an XXL for our lab mix. His hair is very short and he will "request" a blanket in the evening. This wool sweater is thick and feels very warm. I like that is is wool. Static electricity in the acrylic blends made other sweaters seem like he was wearing popcorn. My only wish would be that it covered more of his chest. The band across his chest is average size, not small. I always wish they had more coverage.
This is a great sweater. It is wool and should be hand washed - according to the label. If you click on the individual particular size, there is a more detailed size chart that I found to be more accurate than the size chart that just shows the length for each size. This sweater runs on the larger size. The XS fits my 7.5 pound Rat Terrier, but is too long for my 6 pound Chihuahua. I am a knitter, and I am impressed with the yarn choice and quality of the sweater. It makes me happy that this is available in large sizes for the big dogs who often get overlooked when it comes to mass produced clothing.
We are thrilled with this sweater! Not only is it made of fair trade organic naturally dyed 100% wool but it is so well made! By hand! It is also beautiful looking. Thank you Chewy for carrying this great product for such a reasonable price!
I have a 75# Standard Poodle. This means short backed and VERY deep 34" chest. Although the 2XL was the correct size in the chart, my dog needs a 3XL for fit. It'll be a bit long in the back, but that is the most tolerable dimension to be wrong.
We were excited to get our pup a wool sweater (acrylic just don’t cut it). It fits well and keeps him warm. It is also super cute! Two downsides: 1) there is no hole for the leash to attach to his harness (why??) and 2) it curls up near his tail so his back end is not as protected as we would like.
Measured my dogs and ordered the recommended sizes. They didn’t fit at all. The collar that attaches to the body of the sweater makes for way too much material at the neck and makes it way too tight. Both dogs hated the sweater and looked very uncomfortable with them on. I totally wasted $58 on them.
this sweater is made by chillydogsweaters.com. they are hand knitted using 100% wool and use vegetables dyes in South America. my dog enjoys sleeping in her sweater in the winter, as we keep the house very cold at night. it is very comfortable for her. i would recommend this brand!
