Pajamas – Pajamas have become common clothes for small dogs. Small dogs like Chihuahuas tend to get cold easily. Pajamas make it easy for them to have a layer of warmth without the fussiness of a heavy jacket or trying to stay under a blanket. Pajamas for dogs are usually made of cotton or a lightweight fabric and are woven for warmth.

Jacket – If you take your Chihuahua for a daily walk outdoors, you want to get him or her a jacket for the cold weather months. Chihuahuas can get very cold, even in mild temperatures and need warm clothes. It is important to cover your Chihuahua to prevent your dog from catching a cold.

You do not want the jacket to be too heavy, so look for a knit fabric which moves with your dog’s body. Hoodies are cute for a Chihuahua, but they make take your pet some time to get used to. If your dog is not used to wearing clothes, start with a plain crew-neck sweater. This will give your dog that layer of warmth without causing discomfort. Sweaters are available in all styles, from the feminine variety with flowers to those masculine types branded with NFL and MLB teams.
