Dogs will grow a thicker coat in the winter months. There is no need for a sweater. It you do put a sweater on you dog, you could actually cause their coat to not gorw in properly which will actually make them colder.
My doberman does fine in the winter here in Canada with no sweater. He doesn't stay outside all the time, but for walks and going out to pee he is fine.
