With an average weight of just 2-3 pounds, Chihuahuas are considered the world’s smallest dog bred. While there are always exceptions with certain overweight Chihuahuas, most of them tend to be about pocket-size (hence the term Teacup). As a result of their small size, their bodies are more susceptible to the cold and weather. As an owner, it’s your responsibility to keep your Chihuahua healthy and comfortable.
One way to keep your Chihuahua warm and protected from the freezing cold temperatures mother nature has to offer is to keep them cooped up indoors all day. Unfortunately, however, this isn’t the best option, as all dogs need daily outdoor exercise to remain healthy. Not only will this give them a chance to do their business (instead of inside the house), but it will also allow them to run around and stretch their legs. The bottom line is that all Chihuahuas need to spend time outdoors each and every day.
So, how are you supposed to keep your Chihuahua warm and protected from the cold weather while they are outside? The answer is simple – dress them up in a warm shirt or sweater. Just like we wear clothes to stay warm, so can your Chihuahua. A basic single-colored cotton or wool sweater is more than enough to keep your Chihuahua warm during the chilly fall and winter months. In addition, they will also look super cute and fashionable, which is just another benefit to dressing them up!
