Dog Life Jackets



Pet Life Jacket Shopping Tips


Pets can be a lot like humans. If we go overboard into the water we know that we can’t keep paddling around and treading water forever so we always have a life jacket on the boat or, when in the water, a jacket on ourselves. While we may rest at the sand bar or the beach and let our dogs roam around or keep them on their regular leash, if we take our best friends with us on to the boat, we should ensure their safety like any other passenger.


Pet Life Jackets are available and come in a variety of sizes to accommodate the size of the pup. Make sure to get the right size and that it fits comfortably – one too big might harm them more in the water as it would bulk up over them, one too small would be too uncomfortable and constricting. One type of life vest available is split into two sections. One part is for their neck while the other is for their body. This would be a good choice for the owner with a bigger dog like a lab or husky. A smaller, one piece, might be better for smaller dogs like pugs or Chihuahuas. The one piece life jackets do come in large enough sizes for a larger dog and wears like a sweater and usually has a buckle or two to ensure that it stays on. more...
