The Best Christmas Dog Pajamas

One of the best parts of the holiday season is being able to share the festivities with your furry family members. If you're looking to make this the best Christmas ever, splurging on the best Christmas dog pajamas for your Fido is a sure way to do it! Not only are they adorable, but your pup will also be warm and comfortable all day.

Before purchasing dog Christmas pajamas for your canine companion, there are a few things that you need to consider. First of all, remember that pajamas shouldn't be used simply for sleeping. When your dog is sleeping, it's best if he is not wearing clothing.

You want your pet to be as comfortable as possible, so he can get the rest that he needs. You also want to be sure that he's safe while he's asleep. Pajamas could restrict his range of motion or bunch up while he's asleep and become uncomfortable. Likewise, if the areas around the limbs or neck become too tight when the material bunches up, your dog could get injured in his sleep.

It's best if your pooch struts around in his Christmas dog pajamas during the day. You also need to ensure that you choose a set of pajamas that will fit your dog and meet his needs.

Consider your dog's coat. Is it a thick, heavy coat? If this is the case, a pair of extra-warm, woolly pajamas could cause him to overheat. On the other hand, if your pet has little to no fur, a nice warm pair of jammies will help to protect him from the cold.

If you're going to order dog Christmas pajamas online, be sure to follow the company's measuring instructions very carefully. Every company is going to have different measuring instructions, so don't just assume that your dog will be a ‘medium' in every brand.

These Christmas dog pajamas are available in four sizes starting from extra small, with sizing based on length. Since the LazyOne Dog Pajama FlapJack is a onesie with limb covering, the length from the base of the neck to the base of the tail is indeed important.

8Lanyar’s Holiday Penguin Xmas Cotton Pet Dog Pajamas


This blue pajama jumpsuit from Lanyar has an adorable penguin and snowflake print. These Christmas dog pajamas are made of 95% cotton material blended with 5% lycra to add to their stretchable quality. This has similar features as the Fitwarm Christmas pajamas we’ve listed above, including the open bottom and front part, raglan sleeves, and full leg covering.

The material is much thinner, which is acceptable since this is cotton instead of Fitwarm’s fleecy fabric. The Lanyar Holiday Penguin Xmas Cotton Pet Dog Pajamas will also be perfect in regions where it’s not overly cold during the holiday season. The size chart shows length, chest, and neck measurements. The first thing to measure is the back length since it determines if this pajama would fit all four legs. Then next would be the chest and neck. If it’s tight on the chest, then go one size higher.

These Christmas dog pajamas will afford your pet comfort and warmth during frigid winter nights. One basic thing to do to ensure their comfort will be to measure carefully and compare with the size guide offered in the description of the CuteBone Dog Pajamas – Christmas. Don’t trust weight and breed or your pet’s previous clothing sizes. Take note, however, that this is made of toys and small breeds only.


12Fitwarm Christmas Gingerbread Man Dog Pajamas


We were about to say that this is another of those Fitwarm onesies we’ve featured, but, no, because this has a more fleecy interior fabric. Thus, it feels softer, warmer, and more comfortable for the pet. On the exterior, these Christmas dog pajamas have a more even, synthetic texture.

It’s mainly green in color with gingerbread man and cane prints. The rest of the Fitwarm Christmas Gingerbread Man Dog Pajamas is the same as the other Fitwarm pajamas with raglan-style sleeves for the forelegs. These Christmas dog pajamas are available in a wide range of sizes from XS to XXL.

These jammies are done in green with red Santa prints, so they’re definitely an “in” thing for parties, photo shoots, and family gatherings this Christmas season.

The Lanyar Christmas Dogs Pajamas – Green Santa Claus is true to size, so we suggest that you go by their size guide. Back length and chest girth are vital statistics. For irregularly built dogs, such as dachshunds, expect this PJ to be a bit loose around the chest but just right from neck to butt.


14Fitwarm Dog Christmas Outfit


Christmas is indeed a feast of colors, specifically, green and red. These Fitwarm Dog Christmas Outfits are in intense green, highlighted with reindeer, Santa hats, Christmas trees, and candy canes. It is made with polyester and cotton blend fabric.

The Fitwarm Dog Christmas Outfit will cover all four legs, and we’ve noticed that the sleeves of these pajamas are not as long as what we often see in most designs. What we’re saying is that they’d be good for dogs with shorter legs as there will be less folding of the cuffs, which will be more convenient for you and your dog.
