Kept him paddling all day long!


  • Durable
  • Versatile


  • Would benefit from having a second handle on top

This was a great purchase that was used quite a bit on a trip to Florida. We tend to rent a boat when we head down that way and the dog likes to come along. 

Well, when we jumps in the water it is next to impossible to get him out with the boat ladder. But with this jacket he swims up to the boat and you grab the handle on it and pull him right up. 

My only issue is that my dog is over 100lbs and it would be great if it had a second handle further back so that when lifting you could get more leverage. 

Also as dogs get older they think they can do the same things they did when they are a puppy but they can't. This device allows them to swim a lot longer without getting so tired.
