Life jacket for pup
My 5 mos old pup goes boating with us often and loves to swim. I want a life jacket that's not real bulky and easy to move in but still works properly. Any ideas?

I bought the K9 Float Coat from Ruffwear. May want to get something cheaper until he is grown though or get a smaller one then a larger one later.

They are very specific about size when you call them. They say if you get it too big it really does not work as well. I bought one for my working dog who must be all over the boat, hanging over the edge, and be able to swim in it and I am satisfied. A teammate regularly does recreational kayaking with his dog wearing the coat.

I'll look into it. Thank you!

Don't get the Ezydog. Bulky and although you can tighten it so it fits snug on land it loosens really quickly in the water.
