Do dogs actually need sweaters when it's cold outside or is this more for the owner's amusement?

Some dogs imo have thinner coats and need a little extra protection, like my pug, but the coats are so expensive i just dont let him outside for longer than he needs to do his business

I think mostly it is for the owners amusement! But I will say I do own a 12 pound chiweinie and I have coats and sweaters for her bc she is almost hairless and freezes in the cold weather!

 lol, depends on the dog.  My chihuahua definitely did and my poodles are shaved pretty closely and they are toys, so the smaller breeds usually for when it gets very cold, but big, hairy breeds, probably not.
