We can have cold winters here & always have snow. The ebs love the cold & don't wear a coat. Junie goes in & out so fast its not worth putting a coat on her. :D I did go to goodwill & get a 2T long sleeve shirt that fits if she gets chilly in the house. Our house is cool in the winter because of the eb's.

It gets cold here in N.E. Oregon and Buster loves his walks so a warm coat is a must. I'm going to check out Martha Stewart's line of coats for Frenchies. Around the house his Petco Pupcrew size large are a good fit!

Never hurts on a Frenchie to put something on them when they are out in the cold, as they will get colder faster than an EB. Not as much body fat or fur.

I've been looking on line and found Auggie's Closet with both clothes for Ebs and Frenchies. Has anyone tried them? Buster's measurements are within their range for Frenchies. He is 9 months old now and I'm sure he will fill out some more and his Petco Pupcrew large hoodies fit him perfect now, but not much room to grow in the chest and shoulders. Petco's XL would be way too long.

udogu also has some nice fleece pullovers in a medium plus that should fit Frenchies. They don't have hoods and I like that because Buster goes nuts if I put a hood or hat on him and when he and Ruggles are wrestling the hood could get hung up on something!

I have seen an online place called Foggy Mtn dog coats that has what appear to be very nice quality and cut to fit specialty hard-to-fit dogs like Frenchies and Great Danes. I am waiting until Gidget finishes growing (and when will that be? - she will be 1 yr 10/7/13) before I go this route. But, are you kidding me... she has a whole closet of things (mostly outgrown at this point) that we had fashion shoots with. Seriously. :D

Cheli loves being outside so we tend to just put a sweater on him when it is REALLY cold

[MENTION=6]LariP[/MENTION] sews custom pull overs with and without hoods. I have ordered one for both Buster and Ruggles and will post pictures when we get them. The money goes to help with medical bills for their rescue Bulldog.

I just got Buster a size large fleece from PETCO and it just fits, no growing room. Most mass produced pet clothes are sized for dogs that don't have big chests. The PETCO XL is way too long. I'm going with custom made from LariP. They fit and won't shrink!

How do we go about putting in an custom made order from [MENTION=6]LariP[/MENTION]
I clicked on the link and it went to a page that had no activity on it? We are looking at either purchasing a custom sweater, or the one on Auggie's Closet. The one on there wasnt a bad price for the quality of coat.
We are in Upper Michigan and the temp has already dropped down to 40 degrees and we are barely in October!! I think its going to be a cold winter... Do your frenchies like the snow?? Have you ever had to purchase booties or anything for them?
