What Is Special About a Dachshund Fleece Jumper?
A Dachshund jumper is very different in proportions from a classic dog fleece because doxies' proportions are very different to a typical dog.
- At Dogsnug we make sure we keep their very long backs and bellies dry by designing the dachshund fleeces longer.
- We make Dachshunds' jumpers' sleeves snug to avoid their very short legs getting stuck in the jumper.
- Dachshunds are very close to the ground. This means that their bellies are more exposed to rain and mud splash. To help with this, the belly of our jumpers are long for better protection and snug to prevent the fabric from dragging, and for sausage boys from peeing inside it.

How To Put On A Dogsnug Fleece Jumper
Materials & Design
The jumpers are made with man-made polyester fleece, which is a naturally water-repellent material. Additionally, we wash our sausage dog coats with a water-repellent coating which is skin and environment-friendly.
Our dachshund fleece jumpers are in the UK in our London workshop.
We designed the Dachshund fleece jumper from scratch using our 20 years of expertise in the fashion industry; and through observation of the dachshunds' behaviour, and their play and walk style.
We first measured many different dachshunds for a year, allowing us to develop good prototypes to fit their unusual bodies.
Currently, we have a brick-and-mortar shop in London, which gives us the wonderful opportunity to keep fitting and measuring dachshunds to continue improving our product.
What Other Fits Are Available and Why?
We make three fits of jumpers: for Sighthounds, for Dachshunds and for more Classic silhouettes.
We also make to measure if your dog is too different from our measurements or has special needs. For example: If your dog is very large, is missing a leg, does not like garments over the head...If you feel you need this service please contact us and we will try our best to help
We care about the fit very much. This is because most breeds have very specific shapes and behaviours that should be taken into account when making a garment for them. If the fit is poor, your dog may refuse to wear it, it may rub their skin, and it could even change their behaviour.
Well made , fit is brilliant. Covers the long belly.
