Do French Bulldogs Need Jackets?


It's an undeniable fact that French bulldogs are one of the best dogs for apartment living conditions. Since they don't need much exercise, breed experts consider them perfect pets for city dwellers. On the other hand, Frenchies can't sustain low temperatures, and that's why they need to wear French bulldog jackets.

Why do French bulldogs need jackets?

We all know that Frenchies are famous for their silky and smooth coats. However, the fact is that they aren't bred to handle cold weather conditions.  A moderate temperature is something that fits them most.

Another reason why these furry gremlins need to wear jackets is that they have short legs. Their bellies are more likely to touch the icy snow when they go for a stroll in winter.  Therefore, by keeping their bodies warm, you'll prevent them from catching a cold.

Here we come to the last part. Frenchies' brachycephalic skulls and short snouts make them incapable of warming up the air they inhale.
