    Question Climate Control Sensitivity...

    Sorry for yet another thread, but I need to make sure I am not having my puppy in to cold of air.

    I brought him to work with me as he will be doing alot, and part of the work in the office and part in the shop. The shop ranges from 45-60 depending on the day and when I get there. Is 45 to cold for him to be in? Here is a pick of him right now sleeping.

    aww he is so darn cute. It looks as if you have a great blanket and playpen for him. You can get a hoodie or sweater for him when it is cold. Our Bullies live in Florida and I have to make sure it doesn't get too hot. Our house is kept cold 68-72 degrees. When the cold weather hits us, we have open windows until it gets down to the 40's. Bella and Abby both have blankets and crates to snuggle in if they get cold.

    Just keep an eye on him and cover him up if he looks cold. Again, he is so beautiful, congrats, you are going to love having a bully.

    Always with me

    I would get a sweater or some type of jacket you can place on him when it gets that cold and he is there for long periods of time.

    our boys love 60-70 degree weather...that is when they are happiest...that being said jameson will spend hours outside in 40 degree weather given the chance, but mama doesn't want to walk for hours in that...anything over 70 and jameson starts to get hot...titan not as much...they snuggle under 60....but if you give em plenty of blankets if they are cold they will burrow and get nice and warm...if they are hot they will pull the blankets to the side. get him a sweatshirt or jacket for the shop so and hopefully you don't get the stink eye like i do when i put one on them

    Start dressing him in a sweater while he is young. He will get used to it quickly. Then you can put a sweater or jacket on him when he is going to be in the chilly temps of the shop.

    I agree with several others, since he is still young I would get him a sweeter or jacket to wear when he is in the cold, plus the blanket. Check him regularly and make sure he is not shivering. Once he gets bigger a sweeter is all he may need. Plus he is just adorable, you have a cutie on your hands.

    Yes..a sweater would be the best bet..and I agree, do it when their young and they won't mind wearing them. If you need help we have someone here who is a wonderful seamstress! I'm sure LariP can get you setup with a Great sweater! PM her if needed!

    I agree with all of the above. Start putting a sweater on him and he will get use to it. All my animals are use to wearing coats and sweaters. OMG how do you get any work done. I'd be looking at him all day just so I don't miss any cuteness. Maybe I'd even carry him in a snuggli...ok just kidding. How much does he way again? OK, just kidding again. I love the little playpen and even the pretty red blanky.

    We live in Floirda too, I have the opposite problem, making sure Vegas does not get to hot. 70 is perfect for the both of us! He does have a pillow and blanket in his crate, but if he gets to warm he just comes out and plops down on the cool tile. I have not turned my air off yet and it is Dec. 27th!!

    It's great you have a nice warm bed and blankie for him because I think 45 might be a little too cold for extended periods of time. Especially for a puppy. Our bulldog likes playing in the cold, but he only does it for an hour or so and is running around. We keep our house in the low 60s and that is pretty good. Like everyone said, get some sweaters for your little guy and just keep an eye on him for shivering, etc.
