Dog Lifejackets
 
Looking for any suggestions for a life jacket for my 1 year old Lab. I hope to get her out fishing with me this summer and I would feel much better if she was wearing a life jacket. Thanks

I also have a Lab and she loves, loves the water. She is also OCD and when she does something she likes she does not or cannot stop. I got her a lifejacket and I don't worry about her drowning anymore. I put in on her at home several times before going into the water, getting her used to wearing something that is thicker and heavier then a Thundershirt or Tshirt. Sasha did really well with the jacket but I do not put it on her all of the time.

Just remember they can be very hot. We canoe tripped in remote areas for many years and never used one because of that. We also had dogs who were extremely well behaved in the canoe. Be sure you always wear your own life jacket too, especially with a dog in the boat, but always anyway. :)
