Takse, as a short-haired dog, can not do without clothes in the harsh winters of the Russian climate. Probably the simplest thing you can wear a dachshund is a sweater. And you can make it up quite easily with your own hands.
First, those who know how to knit, will easily cope with this task. And do not even have to buy yarn separately. It is much more fun and economical to use the rest of the yarn from other things. And the more colorful it will be, the brighter and more noticeable will be your dachshund.

The main thing is to remove three basic measures from the dog: chest girth (in the widest place), chest girth in the place where the sweater will begin (somewhere at the level of the clavicles). And the girth of the abdomen in the place where the sweater will end. It should be borne in mind that the girl can make a sweater longer - under the very pelvis, and the boy needs a shorter - to the "waist." How right?
You also need to measure the length of the product on the back and stomach and the location of the front paws, where it is necessary to tie holes. Since the dachshunds have short paws, it is better not to tie up the sleeves, they will get too dirty.
It is desirable that such sweaters for autumn and winter walks at the rate were two or even three. Korotkolopaya dog will always get them dirty, so after every walk her clothes have to be washed. To have time to dry, you need several alternatives.
If you do not know how to knit, you can more easily make a dachshund sweater. Take the sleeve of an unnecessary human sweater, cut out holes in it for paws and sweep them, as well as the beginning and end of the product. In the same way, it is possible to sew socks for summer walks from the sleeves of light cat's turtlenecks, which will protect from the burning sun and ticks .
In addition to sweaters and T-shirts, the dachshund will need a waterproof paperclip. It is quite easy to sew it yourself. It is necessary to cut one oval piece in the width of the half-breasted dachshund in the widest place and a length of about 70-80 cm. In the center of this part, you need to make a hole for the dog's head. Then on the cloth, which will cover the chest of the dachshund, the ropes are sewn, which will be tied on the back.
To cut such a cuff is better from Bologna. Without lining, it is suitable for walking in rainy summer and off-season. And, sewn in the form of a fleece lining, you can make a winter version that protects the dog from wet snow and all the troubles that are hidden in it: fragments of ice, gasoline, salt mixture, automotive oil, etc.
