If you have spent any time around a large body of water (think swimming pool, lake, ocean or river) with your dog, I am sure you have asked yourself whether or not a dog life jacket is needed to keep your pet safe.
Even if you think your dog is Michael Phelps, any dog, yes even a Labrador Retriever, can become tired, struggle with waves or a strong current, become disoriented in the water, or just need a little help remaining afloat. A life jacket will keep your dog safe and make it easier to bring your pup back ashore or on the boat.
If you're considering a dog life jacket for your pet, talk to other dog owners and boaters. The U.S. Coast Guard, which regulates human life jackets, does not regulate them for pets, so be sure to have your dog fitted to ensure it will work for your dog.
There are many varieties of life jackets available on the market, make sure you look at the type of product and materials used in construction. These items can impact how effective the life jacket it is and whether or not you will be able to use the life jacket year after year.
