We all love our best friends and want to do anything we can to keep them safe and healthy. That's why dog life jackets are becoming more and more popular. If you want to take your furry friends with you on a boat trip, then a dog life jacket is just what you need.

Considerations when choosing dog life jackets:

Buoyancy

Dog life jackets get their buoyancy primarily from foam padding. The padding is located in different spots on each jacket. The weight of your dog will have a major impact on how buoyant the life jacket will be. Consider the design of each dog life jacket when trying to assess its buoyancy to your dog's build and weight.

Size and fit

Your dog's life jacket must fit properly. Just like a human, a dog in an ill-fitting life jacket could be in danger of slipping out of it. When choosing a life jacket for your dog, check the specifications and compare them to your dog's measurements to guarantee a proper fit.

Material

Most dog life jackets made of lightweight materials similar to human life jackets. However, dogs tend to be more rough on their safety equipment than most humans. Try to get a dog life jacket made out of durable nylon or another synthetic material that can withstand a decent amount of rough handling.

 Breed

In addition to the size and weight of your dog, you need to consider the breed. While some breeds are more relaxed and willing to go with the flow, others are hyper and maybe more likely to wriggle out of the safety vest. Your dog's breed impacts its temperament, so take that into account.

 Color

The color of your dog's life vest is important for one main reason besides simple style preference. You will likely want a brightly colored life jacket that will stand out if and when your dog is in the water. This is especially important if you plan to take your dog out on a boat in less than optimal lighting conditions.

Features

Reflective strips

Reflective strips are extremely helpful for making sure that your dog can be seen. If they happen to be in the water in low light or darkness, then the reflective strips will make the vest much easier to track down in the water with a flashlight.

Adjustable straps

Some dog life jackets come with adjustable straps to make sure that the dog has the best possible fit. This is a great feature for smaller breeds that might not fit as snugly into a life jacket as a larger dog would, or for a puppy that will be growing.

Insulation

Insulation is a feature that can help a dog swimming in cold water adjust to its surroundings. Dogs don't generally moderate their temperature as easily as some other animals, so an insulated life jacket can make your dog more comfortable in the water.

Leash attachment

Having a leash attachment on your dog life jacket is a convenient feature that most will want to have. It makes it easy to go from a boat to the land without struggling to remove the vest and attach a leash. With this feature, you can simply hook your leash right onto the life jacket, and away you go.

Handles

Handles are a nice safety feature to have on a dog life jacket. Many dogs will panic if they fall into the water and they may have trouble following your instructions. Having a handle on their life jacket makes it easy for you to reach in and grab them out in a hurry.
