    Default Jackets and Sweaters?

    We are having a major cold front today and Miss Pepper Potts is NOT having it. I've never, ever been one to 'dress' my dog (she's so cute, though!) but she's freaking shivering. She doesn't want to go outside, play ball, or potty. She just stands, shivers, and stares at me.

    I am thinking of getting her a nice fleece sweater. Does anyone use one regularly? Peps comes to work with me every day, and the last thing I want is her to be cold. If it seems to be a normal part of Bully-dom, I'm hitting petsmart on my lunch break. She's making me sad!

    Any advice is appreciated, everyone


    My hubby is gonna crack up laughing if I start dressing my doggie!

    I sorta thought so. She's got SUCH short hair and my baby is shivering. I felt so bad when my kiddo and I got our coats on this morning and she gave me this look of "Hey...the hell?!"

    Coat on lunch break. Check! Oh, another trip to PetsMart. $20 says we come out of there with more than just the sweater!

    Bulldogs are hard to fit. Good luck finding plus sizing in dog clothes at Petsmart. You need to find someone that custom makes dog clothing.

    I did try some on her a few days ago for giggles, she didn't seem to have any issues.

    American Apparel makes hoodies for dogs, and the pics on their website show bulldogs, but i'm not sure how the fit is. They look super cute though!

    Hi, my guys have sweaters and coats. I've bought some at Petsmart, but it's difficult to find ones that fit them properly. I have had better luck finding sweaters and jackets at Woofstock.

    Jagger has a sweater he wears all the time or he will shiver. Ellie has a jacket that I only put on her when we go out. She doesn't seem to get as cold.

    Ok I almost wet myself when I read that.

    I did find her a cute one at PetsMart. its a teeny bit too big, but she's still got a bit to grow. It proclaims to all that she is "Spoiled Rotten". I actually found quite a few that I liked! She sat and tried on clothes for like 30 minutes. my little trooper!

    I just went through a few weeks of searching for a fleece or sweatshirt for my pup, Ruckus, who love his long morning walks, but hates the chill in the air. I did lots of purchasing and returning because most dog clothing doesn't fit bulldogs correctly at all. You have to get bulldog specific clothes or it will be too long on their backs and too small on their necks and chest. I bought a fleece sweatshirt from Plus Size Pups through Amazon which is specifically made for bulldogs, it fits perfectly and was well worth the few extra $. I highly recommend it. I also bought one from American Apparel, which is long on him, but does fit in the neck and chest -- so I have to watch him when he potties so he doesn't accidentally go on the sweatshirt.
