Fitting Your Dog For A Life Jacket

Properly fitting your dog for a life jacket could potentially save its life.

As with life jackets for people, be sure to do a float test under controlled conditions. A cooler option for dogs expected to stay in the boat is a lightweight inflatable life jacket with an adjustable harness for proper fit. For hunting dogs, pet life jackets provide insulation from the cold as well as flotation.
