Chihuahua Raincoats, Jackets and Outerwear
Every Chihuahua should have at least one raincoat or jacket in their wardrobe. Even if they stay inside most of the time, there will still be occasions that call for a jacket to help keep them comfortable. Something as simple as a piece of outerwear can offer a valuable layer of protection against the biting cold winds, rain and everything else mother nature has in store for the day. Of course these are just a few of the many instances when a Chihuahua jacket will come in handy.
While most large pet stores carry doggie jackets, there are a couple reasons why you should avoid purchasing them here. For starters, probably won't have a large selection, forcing you to choose from only a few different types of jackets. If you want your Chihuahua to stand out from the rest with a sense of style (which you should), then you'll need to shop for a jacket elsewhere. Another problem associated with purchasing a jacket from these large stores is their high price tag. There's simply no reason why a small Chihuahua jacket should cost as much as a jacket for you and me.
Thankfully, we offer a smarter shopping alternative. Here you can shop through one of the largest selections of Chihuahua raincoats, jackets and other forms of outerwear for sale. Just browse through the available listing directly below and click on the ones you're interested in. You'll then be taken to the official page with more details about the item.

Benefits of Chihuahua Jackets and Raincoats
A Chihuahua jacket or raincoat is one of those accessories that you probably don't realize just how useful it is until you own one. Once it's in their wardrobe, however, you'll find yourself frequently pulling it out and dressing your Chihuahua up in it. Chihuahua jackets and raincoats are a fun and stylish way to stay comfortable when the weather begins to turn south, but that's really just one of the reasons why you should own one. Let's take a closer look at some of the benefits associated with them...
- Raincoats are designed with a waterproof outer layer that wicks away rain and moisture. When it's raining outside and your Chihuahua needs to do their business, dress them up in a raincoat to keep them dry and comfortable.
- In addition to repelling rain, Chihuahua jackets also offer a valuable layer of protection against the snow and ice. You have to remember that Chihuahuas come from the scorching hot region of Chihuahua, Mexico; therefore, they aren't used to the cold weather. Families living in areas that receive cold winters with the possibility of snow should protect their Chihuahuas with a comfortable coat.
- Whether they are a long-coat or smooth-coat variety, all Chihuahuas shed. Dressing them up in a coat, however, will keep some of their fur from falling onto the floor and furniture inside your home. Instead of their loose fur getting on everything, it will stay trapped inside their coat where you can easily remove it later.
- Jackets and raincoats act as protective barriers against fleas, ticks and other harmful pests. No one likes to think about these burdensome pests burrowing into their Chihuahuas, but unfortunately it happens. You can help prevent this by placing a jacket or raincoat on the them before they go outside.
- A lesser-known benefit associated with Chihuahua raincoats and jackets is that it reduces the amount of leaves, dirt and debris your tiny pooch tracks in. The fur on a Chihuahua's body acts as a magnet to debris like this when they are outside. If you put a jacket on them before they go outside, however, it will help keep the inside of your home clean and free of debris.
- If your Chihuahua stays outside for long periods of time, you should put a jacket or some other form of outerwear on them to help reduce the chance of sunburn. Just like we get sunburned from staying outside too long, so do Chihuahuas.
How To Choose The Right Chihuahua Outerwear
With so many different types of Chihuahua jackets and outerwear available, choosing one can be a challenge. There are basic sweater coats that are designed simply to keep a Chihuahua warm, while others are constructed with waterproof material for the rain and snow. Unless you want it to sit unused in your Chihuahua's wardrobe, it's recommended that you carefully choose the one that's best suited for your Chihuahua's specific needs. While a basic jacket may work best for one Chihuahua, another type may work better for yours.
Arguably the most important thing to consider when choosing Chihuahua outerwear is the functionality aspect of it. Read the description to find out what the jacket or coat is designed for. If you live in a region that receives plenty of rain or snow, then you'll want to make sure the jacket is made with a waterproof exterior material, such as vinyl, polyester or some form of plastic. There's nothing worse than dressing your Chihuahua up in a jacket only to discover it soaked a couple minutes layer.
While the exterior of a Chihuahua jacket should be made with a waterproof material, the interior should have a soft lining that's comfortable for a Chihuahua's delicate skin. Something like a fleece or faux-fur lining are great choices, as they create a naturally comfortable padding that's not going to rub your Chihuahua raw. Basic cotton padding can work as well, but it's not quite as stylish as fleece or fur.
Before purchasing any new raincoat or jacket for your Chihuahua, take a minute to familiarize yourself on how it works. Jackets are usually constructed differently than traditional dog shirts and sweaters, so they may go on in different ways. The bottom line is that you don't want to be tugging away at your Chihuahua for half an hour trying to get a jacket on their body. Something like velcro straps, however, offer a quick and easy method for securing the jacket a Chihuahua.
