Large Dog Life Vests
Your dog likes to go everywhere with you. To the ocean, to the lake and on the boat. But you don’t want to take any chances with his life. Although no one appears to be keeping statistics on the number of dog drownings that occur each year, accidents can and do happen. Aside from not allowing your pet near a pool or another body of water without supervision, you can also invest in a canine floatation device. Even breeds that do well in the water may become tired sooner than you realize. English bulldogs, pugs and dachshunds may have great trouble swimming, or may not be able to tread water.
That’s why a growing number of dog owners insist their pets wear life jackets whenever there’s a possibility of drowning. The Kyjen Outward Hound life jacket shown below comes in a range of sizes, from extra, extra small to extra large, designed for a canine that weighs between 70 and 90 pounds, with a chest measurement of between 31 to 42 inches. This dog life jacket is also sold in pink.
All dog clothing, costumes and accessories seem to vary greatly in size, depending upon the style and the manufacturer. This one seems to run a little small, so think about ordering a size up, especially if you’re not sure, or if your pet is close to the weight limit.
