I just moved to the upper peninsula of michigan (lots of snow) from north carolina and my rottie will be living indoors but I like to walk him and such so will he be ok? or should i buy him doggy clothes?
Thank you everyone. He's my baby my little angel so I just want to make sure he's warm and safe.

My guys love cold weather and snow. Yours will be fine. Just make sure that his feet are wiped off and no ice accumulates between his toes/
BTW have you ever tried to put clothes on your Rotties? My Ex bet me once that I couldn’t get a sweater on my big guy. After 30 minutes I was exhausted but did get it on, my dog just froze and looked at me like I was crazy. It took me 30 more minutes to get the thing off.

    Mine loves the snow. It might not be a bad idea to get a few pairs of clothes for the especially cold weather, but overall he’ll be fine.

    Yes, your Rottie should be OK, but since he is a short-haired breed, it would certainly help (and probably be more comfortable) for him to wear an insulated dog snow jacket.

    you will find it very hard to find clothes for a 90# rottie. they actually do fine in the cold, never had a problem with either of mine. the biggest thing is to be sure to clean the feet after a walk,,,the snow ice etc can build up in between the toes and trap the salt from the sidewalk/road. it can be very irritating.
    personally if your dog can fit in the “cute little clothes” it is not a dog,,,it is a baby doll. none of my dogs have ever had clothes,,,nor could i find any that would fit them. i live in northern ohio and none of my dogs have ever had clothes.
