A Dog Snuggie is a dog blanket with sleeves! It’s a loose fleece that you wrap round your dog and then tie in place with adjustable velcro.
The adjustable velcro means that you can comfortably place the fleece over a harness or dog collar, and make sure it’s not on too tight. And your dog should be snug and warm whether indoors or outside.
The advantage of a Snuggie is that it is both warmer than a jacket and looser (so you don’t have to struggle to get it on the dog).
The Snuggies come in a large variety of sizes, so there’s a snuggie for every dog no matter how big or small. You can get it in pink or blue. It’s machine washable too, so there’s no problem keeping it clean. They also score highly on the cuteness factor.
A word about the sizes: there are four; extra small, small, medium and large.
Choose the extra small snuggie if your pet measures 6 – 7″ in length and 5 – 7 lbs in weight. If your dog measures 8-11″ in length and 8 – 11 lbs in weight, go for small. Medium is for dogs measuring 12 -15″ in length and 12 – 19 lbs in weight. Choose large for dogs measuring 16 -22″ in length and over 20 lbs in weight.

Fun fact: did you know that the first pet clothes were made during the reign of King Arthur in the sixth century A.D. to protect them from being injured in wars (they took dogs to war back then). For more information, see the history of dog clothes.
