Default A little safety measure for four-legged companions onboard.

This is interesting information that I wanted to share with you guys. If you ever own a pet and are planning to bring him/her along for the trip, consider having a dog vest on hand. They keep dogs safe around the water and on the boat. Heck, you wouldnít need to worry about their safety as most dog vests are made of durable materials, enough to keep your furry companion safe. Try this out and let me know what you guys think.

I have a vest for my dog but find it makes her more unstable when swimming with it on. It makes her roll on her side. Since she is not a water dog and does not go in the lake we never put it on her.

One of the things I like about a dog vest, is it acts like a dog harness as well. They usually have a handle on the back that allows you to easily (relative to the size of the dog) haul the dog back on board.

Well said Shrew... They are essential, we purchased the one with two handles to be able to get her back on the boat. As you can see she is quite comfortable in it.
