How to pick the right size sweater for your teacup Chihuahua

When you are shopping for sweaters for your Chihuahua it is important that you measure your Chihuahua. Some sweater manufacturers will recommend sizes based upon weight, however, it is more likely that you will order the wrong size when the size is selected based upon weight alone.

If you have never measured your dog for a sweater before, refer to this helpful video how to measure your dog for clothing video by Chewy:

What should I do if my Chihuahua is in-between sizes?

If you are struggling to find a sweater that is small enough for your teacup Chihuahua, you will probably not be able to find a sweater in big box stores.

However, you are fortunate enough to live in a time where the internet gives you many options to find what you are looking for. Here are a few tips when shopping for a tiny teacup Chihuahua:

To Go Custom, Shop Small
Etsy is a website where people all around the world sell hand made items. Sellers on Etsy often knit, sew or crochet clothing for dogs. Armed with your dog’s measurements, search for what you are looking for. If you do not find exactly what you are looking for, message a seller who has something close to what you want and see if they are up for a custom order.

Get Crafty
If you enjoy crafting or if you are considering learning to craft, learn to knit or crochet sweaters for your Chihuahua. You will learn to create custom pieces that fit your furry friend perfectly.

If you are new to crafting, get started with these kits: learn to knit pet projects or learn to crochet pet projects.

If you are more experienced with knitting or crocheting, here are some pattern books to consider:

Switch Species
Shop for cat sweaters instead of small dog sweaters, because cats are always smaller than dogs even when they weigh the same.

Pro tip: for Chihuahuas with really tiny necks, try a cat collar or even a ferret collar!

Conclusion

Chihuahuas love being warm, so your Chihuahua will likely be happy to wear whatever sweaters you choose for him or her. However, if the sweater does not fit will, it will be difficult for your Chihuahua to wear the sweater as he or she goes about their day. Be sure to measure your Chihuahua to ensure that the sweaters you purchase fit so that your furry friend may comfortably wear their sweater.

Although shopping for tiny teacup Chihuahuas can be tricky, there are many options available if you simply cannot find a sweater that fits in a store such as ordering a custom sweater on Etsy, learning to knit or crochet sweaters for your Chihuahua, or shopping for sweaters for other species such as cats or ferrets.
