Is your Lab looking a little chilly ? Do you want to help keep him warm and comfortable when the weather gets cold?

We have put together a selection of great dog sweaters for Labradors.

From fun themed ideas to practical, cute Labrador sweaters.

There is a dog jumper to keep every pooch and his owner happy.

You’ll be able to find the perfect dog jumper to keep your Lab warm and cozy in the cold weather!

Before we start though, let’s address a few concerns about putting dogs in sweaters or other items of clothing

Is it harmful to put clothes on our dogs?

Not everyone likes the look of dog clothing, so you may find you get some interesting comments if you do.

Actually, putting coats on dogs is nothing new. Sporting dogs have been wearing coats before running in competitive events for years. That’s because warm muscles are less likely to tear or rupture than cold muscles.

And many rugged and tough Labradors that work as hunting companions will wear a fleecy sweater to keep them warm on the journey home after a long day in the field.

As you can see, if your Lab wears a sweater from time to time, he is in the best company! So go ahead and indulge him if a smart new dog sweater appeals to you.

  1. You might be amazed how much love both you and your dog get shown at a local knitting store. There are lots of books for dog sweaters, and the owner of the shop may well be able to fit the sweater to your dog. Dog sweaters don’t take a long time to knit, and you might even decide to take up needles yourself.

    I made our aging Labrador a neon pink sweater that helped us see her when she was out in the dark. She wanted to wear it inside and out!!! I’ve never had anyone be so enthusiastic about something I made for them!!! Be prepared for endless appreciation.
