Water Safety Vests for Pets

There are many flotation products that are available for pets. As with any product for your pet, make sure that the device fits your pet correctly and your pet is comfortable wearing it. A pet struggling in water shouldn’t also be struggling with their flotation device.
Look for:
• easy to put on and adjust for your specific dog’s shape
• allows dog to move comfortably when wearing it
• buckles and straps don’t rub
• bright color for easy visibility
• handle on back to lift dog out of water, if necessary

• a large nylon handle on the top of the vest to make it easier to snatch your dog out of the water
• available in two vibrant colors, orange and yellow for easy visibility. Available online.
