Aside from mulled wine, pigs in blankets and a tin of Quality Street, one of the best things about the festive period is getting to don a great novelty knit - and especially joyous are Christmas jumpers for dogs! 

Just as well then, we’ve already taken the time to create an edit of the best Christmas jumpers. We’ve even found matching festive jumpers for all the family so you can all be ready for those virtual parties. 

When we say all the family, we mean it. Dogs are of course included as part of the household, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find the best Christmas jumpers for pet pooches too - see our edit of the very best (and cutest) here.

How do you know what size jumper to get for your dog?

Most jumpers for pouches are available in sizes XS-XL so it can be tricky to know which size your dog would fit into. Would a small dog be a Chihuahua or a Poodle? Is a size large meant for a Great Dane? Luckily, most of the sites tell you how big the jumpers are in centimetres. You can check if it’ll fit the pup you have in mind by taking a tape measure and measuring from the base of the neck of the dog to the end of the back. This way you’ll be able to see where it’ll sit once it’s on your doggo. 

How do you know if the jumpers are safe for dogs? 

Like humans, dogs sometimes need an extra layer to keep warm during winter weather. According to the RSPCA, it’s especially a good idea to invest in a jumper or coat for an elderly dog that’ll still walk outside. 

What better way to keep your favourite furry friend warm than embracing a bit of festive cheer with a Christmas knit? We’ve rounded up the best styles – from robins and reindeers to slogans and snowmen – to make everyone smile this year.
