Some dogs love the water and will jump in for a swim any time they have the chance. But despite popular belief, all dogs aren't champion swimmers. In fact, breeds with a very low percentage of body fat may even have some difficulty staying afloat, and older dogs may tire easily and struggle to swim.
Whether your dog seems to be half-dolphin, or you have a pooch that prefers dry land, a life preserver is an important water safety device for your dog. Even if your pet is a strong swimmer, an unexpected fall from a dock or boat can startle and disorient your pet, so the extra help offered by this jacket can make the situation less scary. Cold or rough waters can exhaust even the most active pet easily, but this life vest fights fatigue by helping keep your dog afloat even if his or her energy is flagging.
Made from a tear-resistant flotation material chosen for its high visibility, this pet life jacket comes with dual reflective strips to make it even easier to spot your pet, day or night. Straps with quick-lock clips secure beneath your dog's belly and ensure a safe and comfortable fit without restricting movement. There's a leash attachment loop for convenience, and quick pick-up handles make it easy for you to pull your pet from the water, whether you're rescuing a dog that's gone overboard, or it's simply time for your water-loving pet to come in from a swim.
Whether you're boating, swimming, or doing anything where your dog might end up in the water, make sure that you have one less thing to worry about by outfitting your dog in this life vest. Select the proper size Personal Floatation Devise (PFD) for your pet.
