Have you experienced any difficulty trying to buy Dachshund clothes for your small fur companion? After all, Dachshunds are not really a regular dog shape, are they?
Finding the ideal Dachshund coats and sweaters can’t be easy with a Dachshund’s long back and whisper it quietly, short stumpy legs. When you’re looking for Dachshund clothing off the peg, so to speak, it can be challenging. If you buy a bigger size to cover their elongated back, the jacket or whatever you’re looking at buying ends up too big for the rest of the dog.
What about when you want to buy clothes for Miniature Dachshunds? It really can get pretty frustrating, which is why it’s pretty much essential to only buy clothes for Dachshunds made especially for them. The good news is that many pet stores are beginning to understand how much Dachshund owners enjoy dressing their dogs in fashionable and appealing clothes.
You can now find clothes, sweaters, jackets, raincoats, and costumes that will fit Dachshunds; you can even buy shirts with longer backs that cater to your Dachshund. Without a doubt, shopping to buy some Weiner dog clothing can be great fun, and I’m sure your Doxie will get plenty of admiring looks.
Unfortunately, not every Dachshund plays ball when you want to dress them up. Some positively hate it and won’t countenance wearing any clothing. But after a few attempts, most Dachshunds are quite happy to sport some new duds. It’s not 100% essential your Doxie wears clothes; they are absolutely fine for most of the year. But if you live in a part of the country that has particularly harsh winters, then it makes perfect sense to get your Doxie wrapped up nicely against the elements.
Many Dachshund owners are not keen on their dogs getting soaked through when it is raining heavily. You can’t bath them every time they get wet, but wet dog hair doesn’t smell too good, and even if you dry them off, you can’t get rid of the smell. In addition, some Dachshunds don’t enjoy getting soaked with cold rain and won’t venture outside. So the obvious solution is to buy a Dachshund raincoat with a hood to keep the rain off. Many non-dog owners frown when they see dogs dressed up, but I wouldn’t let that bother you.
There are a few things you should be mindful of if you’re going to dress up your Dachshund, such as:
- Your Dachshund must be on board with all this dressing-up business.
- Ensure the clothes fit your Dachshund properly.
- Be careful you don’t let your Dachshund overheat.
- If your Dachshund shows signs of stress or anxiety, it’s probably a sign you shouldn’t dress them.
Mini Dachshund sweaters and standard Dachshund sweaters can look tremendously attractive on your Doxie. You can buy them in all sorts of colors and designs; whether you prefer bright garish colors or you like them in more subdued tones, there’s something available for all Dachshund lovers.
Warm sweaters for Dachshunds will be more suitable come the cold winter months, however, even in late autumn, the nights are getting much colder, so you might pop their sweater on just for the last walk before bedtime.
Mihachi Dog Cable Knit Sweater
The Mihachi warm dog sweater is available in 4 sizes, from X-small to large, and four choices of color beige, dark blue, pink, and red. The smallest size measures 10 inches along the back, so depending on the size of your Mini Dachshund, it might fit. However, there are no problems with a Standard Dachsund; you can choose either small or medium. The sweater is made from high-quality terylene and will keep your Dachshund nice and warm even on freezing days and nights.
The high roll neck is elasticated, making it quick and straightforward to get over your Doxie’s neck. You can put the sweater on over the top of your dog’s harness; there’s a hole stitched below the neck for you to attach the leash. This sweater is fashionable with a traditional cable knitwear design.
Why We Like It: The Mihachi warm Dachshund sweater is a genuine fashion statement and is well made and tightly stitched.

If sweaters don’t appeal to you, then perhaps you prefer coats for Dachshund instead. You can, of course, use a coat precisely the same as a sweater, but a coat will make your Doxie look a little more dressed up. There are some excellent coats to choose from for your Dachshund. If it’s just a casual walk around the neighborhood, or perhaps you want something a bit more of a fashion statement if you go somewhere for a special occasion, there’s a coat to suit.
You need the coat to be a comfortable fit and, of course, comfortable to wear. However, if you intend to take your Doxie out at night wearing the coat, make sure you choose one with reflective strips. Remember, your Doxie is only three to four inches off the floor; if it’s been snowing to any depth, your Dachshund isn’t going to be happy with you when his belly is churning through freezing snow. So we suggest you look at coats that wrap around your Dachshund’s belly to keep them nice and snug under there.
Vecomfy Fleece Lining Hooded Extra Warm Dog Jacket
The Vecomfy Dachshund jacket is available in seven sizes from X-small to X-large and has a choice of six colors. There is a sizing chart available, so you can find the exact size for your Dachshund. You’ll need to measure the chest, neck, and length of your Doxie. These Dachshund dog coats will also fit if you’re looking for a coat for your Mini. Inside the coat is a super warm fleece lining with added polyester filling. The outside of the coat is soft, breathable polyester. The coat’s hood will fit over the Dachshund’s head, keeping the ears protected against freezing conditions. If you find your Doxie doesn’t like their heads covered, then there’s a snap fastening to keep it back in place.
The coat also features elasticized edges along the waist and legs, so the coat fits snugly but still allows plenty of movement and is held in place by snap fasteners. When walking your dog, instead of free-play, there’s a leash hole in the top of the coat. You will need your Dachshund to be wearing a harness, though.
Why We Like It: The Vecomfy is fleeced lined with extra polyester filling providing extra warmth. The hood can be worn or snapped back if your Dachshund’s uncomfortable.
- Soft Comfortable polyester
- Elasticized legs and waist
- A choice of six colors
- Seven different sizes

Morezi Zip Up Dog Raincoat With Hood
Dachshund raincoat with hood
This Dachshund raincoat by Morezi is available from XS to 2XL and with a choice of blue, pink, red, or yellow. The coat is entirely waterproof, keeping your Dachshund dry whatever the weather. When sizing the raincoat, you must know that the coat is not made from stretch material and runs on the small size. Add two inches to your Dachshund’s chest measurement and pick the corresponding size. The coat’s sizing means it is also suitable for a Miniature Dachshund raincoat.
This raincoat has arms for your Doxie’s front legs, with a zipper underneath to hold securely in place; the coat’s style prevents the dog’s legs and belly from getting wet. The Morezi is a genuine coat and not a rain cape. If you want a Mini Dachshund coat for rainy days, this will fit the bill. Because Dachshunds have shorter legs than average, you might need to roll up the legs to leave the paws clear.

A Dachshund doesn’t need to wear clothes for warmth, but when it is snowing and raining, that’s another story.
