    @nubonics Check out Foggy Mountain Dog coats, they make them for bullies and Frenchies, and even tell you how to measure your bully, so the coat fits. I bought one for our Frenchies and it fits nice.

    I just bought my baby boy a jacket from petsmart in xxl. The price tag said $20.00 and they were all on sale for $5. Its warm on the inside and windbreaker on the out. My Chubbs is 85lbs. people think he is a mixed dog cause he is so tall and big. it fits him great. Check there I dont know why it was on sale but it was. Petsmart does carry big sizes just not alot in the bigger sizes so when you find it buy it. lol. Good luck hope this helps a little I know how it is cause Chubbs is so big not alot of stores carry his size petsmart by me (Cali-Orange County) has been carrying his size in alot of things shirts, jackets. If you need help and I can help you out please let me know I will look and if they have one I can email you and send it out to you.

    I bought Lola the right length coat then bought a chunk of Velcro and just extended the strap to go around her. It worked great.

    They both use a size large for the Fairbanks coat

    Thanks! Buttercup is quite a bit smaller (17" length and 24" girth) so we are going to try the medium. She begged like a champion for her expected walk so we went out today in 25-30 degree weather. She seemed to love it. I, on the other hand, needed every layer I could get. I wonder how cold will be too cold for her, as well as whether we should try some snow shoes for when the ground gets really cold and/or wet.

    I know you have to measure length & girth, but with everyone's experience... is that all or anything more? Also, what's the best way to measure our baby? Using a seamstress tape or string & then measure? Last thing, again with everyone's experience... about how much will our baby grow in the next few months? He weighed 24.5lbs at the vets office today. Apologies for all the questions.

    Where to measure will be determine by the manufacturer of the coat. Some have you measure just along the dogs back from base of neck to base of tail, some will ask for back,girth and neck measurements.
    Yes I used a seamstress tape but if using a string is easier for you i would just use that. As far as how much more Chubbs will grow that would be really tough to say as all bulldogs grow at different rates.

    I ended finding a place close by that sold Foggy Mountain coats so I got one for Curly.

    I like that it is warm and water proof and has adjustable straps for his huge chest.

    I don't like that it doesn't cover up his chest like my other dogs coats do (Their coats are Breathe Comfort).

    I wish I could find a sweater that would fit him. I went to Petco and Pets mart but everything that fit around his chest covered his butt. I just don't feel like spending 15-20 bucks on something that I am going to need to cut up.

    Well it is beter than nothing for Curly. And the last few mornings have been a winter test for all of the kids. I am glad we do not live in Buffalo, NY. 6 ft of snow already with 2 more feet coming today that started last night.

    We went to PetSmart yesterday to do some coat fittings. Found 1 I really like because it has reflectors on it. Just not sure I wanna spend $25 (includes discount) when Chubbs is gonna grow out of it in a month. Idk.
