My dog is warm and can float!

I got a jacket and a PFD for my pup, and now she walks around bragging to everyone about how cool she is

Float Coat Life Jacket

So far so good. It has been too cold to try it out but it came in a timely manner and it fits like it said it would.

Helping an enthusiastic Bulldog live her best life

Our Sadie is a good swimmer, but her new float coat helps her heavy bulldog self keep afloat. We've even noticed her swimming skills have improved since it seems she feels more secure.

Piece of Mind!

I purchased this float coat for our new 10 month old rescue Puggle to take on his first trip to the ocean. It is bulky, but buoyant, and gave me piece of mind that this hyper gremlin would be safe enjoying the water. I especially loved the handle to pull him up out of harms way with waves. He has had a blast in the pool, ocean & river. Will purchase another for his new rescue brother!
