A few months ago I shared a collection of fall sweaters that were designed to fit my fellow dachshund friends. Well now that the colder weather has set in I thought it would be fun to share my recommendations for winter coats too!
So here is my collection of 10 Winter Coats that Fit Dachshunds – some of which I’ve tried and tested, and a few that seem to fit the bill for all those short legged/long backed doxies out there!
One of my go-to coats every winter is my Voyagers K9 Winter Coat. I’ve owned this coat since 2011 – and it’s held up fabulously over the years. It’s great on the farm, and the added hood is fabulous at keeping my ears warm. Not to mention I look oh-so-stylish when wearing it! You can fetch your own from Voyagers K9.
Over the years I’ve owned many Noodle and Friends Coats. Designed with the long bodied dogs in mind they also feature extra chest protection (great for when you’re low to the ground) and one of my favorite features – a built in d-ring so you don’t have to wear a harness too! Check out the entire line of dog coats from Noodle and Friends.
While I’ve never had the chance to try one of these TeckelKlub Coats, they do look exceptionally warm! These coats come in a variety of sizes to fit many dogs, and have a variety of lengths to accommodate the dachshund’s long bodies! You can even get them embroidered with your dog’s name! I’ve heard from several of my fans that this company makes some great coats. You can fetch one of these coats from TeckelKlub.
After winning a photo contest I got the chance to test out one of these Hurtta Summit Parka’s, and it’s an awesome winter coat that’s exceptionally warm. I love that they have openings for harnesses, and the added draw strings on the back makes it so you can adjust them to fit any length dog, even dachshunds! Fetch your own from Hurtta.
I’ve owned the Ruffwear Climate Changer for quite some time now. And I have to say it is one of the warmest coats I’ve ever owned. Now while it’s not specifically designed for dachshunds, these coats are actually very long in the body and seem to fit my unique build like a glove. The only issue I had with the Climate Changer is that sometimes my legs got caught inside the sleeves (since they are a little extra long) – but mom fixed this issue for me by hemming them up some. But Ruffwear does make several winter coat designs that don’t have sleeves, which would likely be a little more conducive to short legged dachshunds without the need to do some hemming. You can fetch this coat and more from Ruffwear (*contains affiliate links)
These horse blanket style dachshund coats are designed to fit the shorter leg breeds. While I haven’t tried this brand personally, I did used to own a blanket style coat when I was a puppy that fit me very well. You can fetch the Foggy Mountain Dachshund Coat from True Fit Dog Coats.
These handmade fleece coats from Lupo & Olimp are exceptionally soft and warm. They are by far the thickest and warmest fleece jackets I have ever warm, and are great for layering on really cold days on the farm. The best part is they are handmade to fit your own dog! You can fetch them in a variety of colors from Lupo & Olimp Co. on Etsy.
The folks at Pepper Pet Wear make a variety of winter coats – all of which can be custom made to fit your dog – dachshunds included! I’m always a big fan of coats that have added protection under the belly, and these definitely do that! Read my full review on the Pepper Pet Wear Coats. You can check out these custom pet coats from Pepper Pet Wear on Etsy.
While I’ve never warm one, Dachshund Delights makes a whole line of custom coats for Dachshunds. From fleece, to hardier winter wear they have it all, including coats with built in harnesses. You can fetch one of these winter coats from Dachshund Delights.
When I spotted these Winter Wraps from Motley Mutt I couldn’t help but wish I had one! They remind me of the style of my Voyager K9 Coat, and even come in Dachshund sizes. You can fetch one from Motley Mutt.
