Editor's Review

The Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket is a no-fuss way to protect your dog around water.

May 12, 2011 11:08 am | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.

Although your dog may love being around the water, even capable canine swimmers need extra protection in case of emergency — or just exhaustion. And some dogs, despite their best efforts, may not be strong or competent enough to keep themselves afloat until emergency help arrives. For pooches of all nautical skill levels, the Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket is an excellent option for keeping your dog safe in or near water.

The Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket is designed much like a traditional human life jacket, with adjustable nylon straps and buckles. This system is invaluable in preventing a battle of wills if your dog is skeptical about wearing the life jacket for the first few outings. However, our tester dog became quickly accustomed to the jacket after associating it with outdoor fun (and a well-timed treat can help, too!).

For quick drying, the Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket features mesh around your dog’s stomach, helping him to drip dry when out of the water. And the jacket is available in a wide range of sizes, from XX-small to Large (up to 90 lbs.), and appealing, eye-catching prints, such as a cute nautical design as well as a more rough-and-ready camouflage design.

Even more importantly, the safety features of the Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket are well considered. The jacket’s top handle allows you to grasp onto your dog quickly in an emergency, and the jacket has reflective strips in case of an emergency during low light or nighttime.

For the price — from $20-30 during some online sales depending on size — the Paws Aboard Doggy Life Jacket is an invaluable way to help ensure that your pooch is safe and protected around the water.

Pros: Secure protection; comfortable and well made; easy to get on and off; affordable price.

Cons: None.

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
