Hi Dianne:

Viewers use my original Dog Sweater pattern on this page:
along with the alteration instructions to obtain a custom fit for their
dog. The fact that every one has a different crochet tension makes it
difficult for me to tell you exactly how many stitches you need to fit your
dog. Viewers embellished our pattern with their preferences like the
ruffles on the sweater you mentioned. Some add applique to or incorporate
an edging to decorate the sweater.

The best advice I can give is for you to go by the alteration instructions and
try the sweater on the dog as you go to ensure a good fit.

As for training to use wee wee pads... we have three dogs that use them.
When your dog urinates in the floor, absorb a little of the urine on the pad and
put the pad near that same place. You can then move the pad gradually where you want it
OR let her be the boss and leave it there.

Please let me know how your next sweater attempt goes.
