You’re sure to fall in love with these fun small-dog coats for winter, especially since they have so many positive reviews. These already-loved dog clothes have everything you’re looking for, from cold-weather protection to cozy fabrics that will leave your dog in heaven. These are our favorites.

Frisco Portland Insulated Dog Parka 

If your pint-sized pup needs full-body protection from the cold, an insulated parka like this will do the trick. With its removable faux-fur hood and water-resistant lining, your dog will be as snug as can be. You’ll love this coat’s trendy style and three bright color options, while your dog will go crazy for winter warmth that doesn’t restrict their movement. It even has extra snaps and a covered leash port for maximum security while out on walks. It has everything you and your adventurous pooch could need!

Pendleton Crater Lake National Park Dog Coat

Pendleton, the iconic wool company, now offers a line of gorgeous winter coats for our furry friends. The fleece on this cozy vest is guaranteed not to pill or fray, so you can take this dog sweater everywhere you and your dog go. Now, you’ll always know that they’re toasty and snug — and adorable!

With a leash hook and ergonomically designed sweater shape, this coat won’t bug your pup or slow you down on walks. It will be just as comfy whether you’re lounging by the fire or getting in some winter exercise.

Pet Life Sporty Vintage Aspen Dog Ski Jacket

It doesn’t get much trendier than this metallic puffer. This ski jacket for dogs is lined with Thinsulate Thermal Heat Retention Technology, so your dog will stay warm and cozy even in the coldest conditions. This coat even has water-resistant properties and half-sleeves to keep legs nice and toasty.

This fashionable jacket also features a detachable hood and easy-to-fasten snap buttons along the front. Your pup’s chest also will be covered, which isn’t a characteristic many coats can boast. The best part? You can pick the color, too!

Kuoser Cozy Waterproof Windproof Reversible British Style Plaid Dog Vest

For days that aren’t quite as chilly, or for pups who don’t like the snug, restrictive feeling of a coat, a weatherproof vest like this will be exactly what the doctor ordered. The majority of your dog’s body will be covered by layers of cotton, polyester, and terylene for warmth and waterproofing.

One side of this coat is quilted for wind and weather protection, while the other side is meant to keep your dog warm and extra snuggly. It’s basically a two-in-one jacket!

Frisco Manhattan Tweed Dog & Cat Coat

Your dog is going to look absolutely dapper this winter if they wear Frisco’s Manhattan tweed coat. The inside layer of this jacket is lined with faux fur for plush warmth, while the outside is made with a fashionable tweed shell — the perfect accessory for any pup.

Since this fancy coat needs to be event-friendly (just look at those luxurious buttons), it includes a covered leash hole for fashion on the go. You’ll go crazy for the furry collar and chic accents, but your dog will be too comfy and cozy to notice. A win-win!

No matter what kind of coat you’re looking for this winter, your small dog is sure to stay warm and stylish. There are so many nice jackets to choose from — we don’t blame you if you can’t pick just one!

As a small dog owner, you might gaze longingly at the humans who can play endless games of fetch with their shepherds and go for 5-hour walks accompanied by their collies. But you can have all sorts of good times with your little guy. Don't let their size stop you from planning outings together. While, of course, you'll need to work within your beastie's physical constraints, there are lots of things you can do while accommodating their diminutive size.

Hang at the dog park
This is the pastime of many dogs, both large and small. Don't stay away from the park just because your bud can't race around for hours on end. Many parks now specifically set aside sections for small breeds. Take your pup there to find friends of a similar size. If you want to foray into the big dog section (or there isn't an area available for your pup), you can always ask the group if the dogs in there are friendly to their little cousins.
Go for hikes
While it might take a little preparation (and possibly a dog sling), your tiny Fido can enjoy hiking, too. You should work up to this by doing a little bit more each day or each week until they're ready to strike out for a longer adventure. Also, be sure to prep with necessary accouterments, such as water, treats, possibly a dog carrier, and mushers wax if it's winter.
Travel together
One of the biggest benefits of having a little dog is they can go on planes and trains. If your pooch seems to enjoy exploring new places, take them with you on vacation. The fees to travel by air can be a little high and there are some rules (you need them to lie down quietly under the seat for the duration of the flight). But for many doggies, they prefer the flight to staying behind with a sitter.

Video: Husky wants a dog treat (and just won’t be deterred)
Watch this husky throw a tantrum after he can't get a treat from the closed pet store
A team of huskies stand in the snow while the leader makes a fuss

At some point in our lives, we've all thrown a tantrum after not getting our favorite snack. While in humans this becomes unflattering once we reach a certain age, in dogs it never ceases to be a little funny, no matter how frustrated we might feel in the moment. In fact, we can't help but laugh out loud when a pup increasingly gets himself into a fit, over a seemingly small matter. Enter Archer the Husky. While we might sometimes think that little dogs should be more inclined to pout when they don't get their way, huskies are known for being big drama queens, and these two could win the best acting award in this funny husky video shared by u/trashpix.

Happy golden lies down on the pavement to get pets

The best feeling in the world is coming home to an excited pup who showers you with affection the second your cross the threshold. While some dogs grow out of this (or are trained to stop), just about all puppies leap with abandon every time you walk in. Golden's, in particular, are known for their love of people and, while they have many good qualities, they'll welcome just about anyone to the homestead with kisses. This cutie takes it to another level and literally won't let his dad take off his shoes because he's just so happy to see him in this funny golden retriever video.
