Your 5-pound, chronically shivering Chihuahua needs a fleece onesie for all seasons—that’s obvious. But what about our furry family members pushing 60, 70 or 80 pounds? Even with a thick coat of fur, when it’s chilly out, who’s to say Jonathan the Alaskan Malamute doesn’t want protection from the elements? (OK, maybe he doesn’t, but on the off-chance he’ll tolerate a sweater…)

In our experience, finding dog clothes for large dog breeds is a mixed bag. The options are out there, but you have to dig further than the cute ad for a tie-dye dog hoodie you were served on Instagram. To save you the effort, we’ve rounded up a selection of doggie vêtements that will make your big pooch feel like the world is his runway.

dog clothes for large dogs: Primary dog raincoat

1. Primary Pet Raincoat

This waterproof slicker has snaps for full belly coverage, an adjustable hood and a lease opening, and the XL size fits dogs 50 to 80 pounds.

2. L.L. Bean Mountain Pile Fleece Jacket for Dogs

The human version was so popular, L.L. Bean made it dog-ready. According to the brand’s size chart, an extra-large is 28 inches long from neck to tail and can accommodate a girth of 33 to 41 inches. Reviewers say the fit is “generous,” with one citing it works for their 65-pound doodle breed.

3. Carhartt Firm Duck Insulated Dog Chore Coat

This working dog’s coat is water-repellant with a quilted lining and ideal for the dog who likes to help shovel the driveway (or just watch). Per the size chart, an X-large fits necks 24 to 29 inches, chest girths 30 to 45 inches and is 24 inches long. (Anecdotally, one reviewer says, “my Labrador retriever can fit an extra large but probably could’ve went with a large,” so sizing is roomy.)

4. Pendleton Acadia Reversible Dog Coat

This cozy coat reverses from a solid quilted canvas to bold, striped polar fleece. An X-large fits a back length of 24 to 26 inches and a chest circumference of 31 to 41 inches (think Golden Retriever size).

5. Lands’ End Dog Puffer Vest

This puffer has a slot for a leash or harness, a weather-resistant shell and polyester fill for insulation on chilly walks. The XL will fit furry friends from 50 to 80 pounds.

6. Dog Helios Blizzard Full-Bodied Adjustable and 3M Reflective Jacket

This machine-washable, reflective, full-body jacket is ideal for harsh weather or camping buddies. The XL will fit dogs up to 70 pounds, according to the size specs.

7. Frisco Dog Cable Knitted Sweater

For fashionable fur buddies, this cable knit sweater will keep them cozy on cooler days. The sizes go up to XXXL, which will fit 60- to 85-pound dogs.

8. Lands’ End Reflective Dog Vest

This wind- and water-resistant shell will ensure your pooch is visible on late night potty breaks and daytime walks alike.
