Dog Growls and Snaps When Taking Off Its Sweater

I have a Yorkie/Shih Tzu mix. He likes wearing sweaters and gives me no issues putting them on. But as soon as I try to take it off, he freaks out. He starts growling and trying to bite which he never does at any other time. This is completely out of character for him. Does anyone know why? Or does anyone else's dog do this?

I would rub the dog and give him a treat when the sweater is taken off. Then he will associate it with pleasant things.

Stay calm and speak with a soothing voice. Use lots of treats. I would think eventually he would calm down. Be patient.
