Anyone have any ideas re preventing sweaters from slipping down our girls back? She is without her front right leg.

Hi Halia's Mom, welcome! Your future posts won't need to wait for approval so post away!

Front leggers can be tough to fit when it comes to sweaters and jackets. I would stay away from low quality fleece, as that tends to stretch over time.

The Ruffwear apparel in our Gear Shop are ones we've found work best, but honestly it really depends on the dog's breed type, size, and even fur length. I know there are some folks on Etsy making custom dog sweaters for people, you might want to search around there to see who can make one for you. And when you find out let us know if it worked out or now.
