As summer approaches, we all look forward to spending more time outside with our pups! Many dog owners immediately head to the nearest body of water for some R&R on the lake or by the pool. Most dogs love water and are natural swimmers. However, there are some breeds which are a little less graceful than others when it comes to the doggy paddle. Having fun with your pet is super important but so is safety. It may seem a little silly to purchase a life-jacket for your dog, but they come in handy for other reasons, too.
If your dog is a water hound, you may feel as if a life-jacket isn’t necessary; however, if you are doing any watersports and your dog is along for the ride, there is always a chance for your pup to spontaneously take a dip – planned or not. When that happens, having one will come in handy.
With these reasons in mind, we picked a few of our favorite life-jackets, as recommended by the AKC.
1. Outward Hound Granby Dog Life Jacket – A great option for all breeds! This jacket comes in five sizes from extra-small to extra-large with several different safety features and flotation panels.
2. Kimol Shark Fin Dog Life Jacket – If your dog is aiming for the cutest jacket, this is it! With an adorable shark fin, this vest will keep your pup afloat for all water activities.
3. Vivaglory Dog Life Jacket – As the highest-rated jacket, this option will keep your pup safe and secure with extra padding and plenty of room for movement.
4. Hurtta Dog Life Savior Jacket – For the pro pups, this jacket is specially designed for dogs who are always in the water! It’s lightweight and allows for free movement in the water and on land.
If you have any questions about the safety precautions or style of jacket that’s best for your dog, please reach out to us. We’d be happy to advise you in making the best decision for your pet!
I had a Bearded Dragon who was having trouble breathing and it was Saturday around 1:30 They were able to take my emergency in a half hour. Dr Joel sat with me and went over my Bearded Dragon's whole background and relayed new info I did not know. My dragon got oxygen and seems to be doing better. I feel if they didn't get me in that day my baby would not have made it. Thank You so much! Even tho it is 35 minutes away I may just switch to this vet because it is well worth the drive!
Dr. Joel is a fantastic vet. I was first introduced to him when he was the only vet I could find to treat my very, very sick dragon. Unfortunately, she didn't make it.
I adopted a new baby dragon and went to see him again. He was absolutely amazing. He went so far as to show me products he recommends on Amazon. He spent a significant amount of time answering my dozens of questions and put me at ease.
If you have a bearded dragon, I highly recommend you see Dr. Joel. He knows what he is doing. My dragons will never see another vet.
I’m very comfortable leaving my dog at the daycare facility. The people are very caring and professional. My dog is so happy when he gets there that he can’t wait to get out the car which it turns gives me a sense of relief.
His health needs are provided by Tipp Vet who are excellent. In an emergency situation they immediately address my dogs needs. I’m thankful to the entire organization.
Our dogs love going and they saved our older dog's life when she had an allergic reaction 💕
