If you’re looking for the best dog Christmas sweater for your pet this holiday season, you’ll find that there is no shortage of styles. From snowman motifs to classic red and green knitted looks, there’s a dog Christmas sweater for every dog personality out there.

However, before shopping for dog Christmas sweaters, you will want to measure your pup first to ensure a proper fit, as there are no standard clothing sizes when it comes to dogs. For example, a 20-pound dachshund can be a size small in one sweater and a large in another, so it’s best to use your dog’s measurements to determine the sizing when shopping for pet clothes.

Per the American Kennel Club’s guidelines, the best way to do this is to use a tape measure to measure your dog’s back length, chest girth and neck girth. With those three measurements, you should be able to order any dog sweater with confidence that it will fit your pet.

Once you have your dog’s measurements on hand,  you’ll want to take a look at some of the best dog Christmas sweaters we’ve found. Whether for an Instagram snap or to add a little holiday cheer to your routine, these sweaters are bound to make your dog look adorably festive.
