Water Safety for Dogs

Standard

It is the time of year we take our dogs out swimming, on the boat, or near water.  Most dogs love to swim and are very good at it, but it is important that you keep safety in mind, especially if your dog is not a natural swimmer.  Some dogs struggle too much in the water and don’t have a natural, smooth stroke.  This can lead to panic which results in even more thrashing and possible danger.

Luckily my female Boerboel is a natural swimmer, but it’s always safest to wear a specially made dog life jacket when your dog is near water or on the boat.  Don’t let a pleasant summertime activity turn into a crisis!

We get excellent reviews on all of the Outward Hound gear, and the Outward Hound Ripstop Dog Life Jacket is no exception.  We also carry the Paws Aboard and Pawz Pet Products dog life jackets, and highly recommend them.  Dog life jackets can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy, and a portion from every sale will be donated to Rescue.

There are a ton of technical products on the market to keep people warm in cold weather conditions.  Now, thanks to Kyjen, a company based in Colorado, we now have cold weather gear to keep our dogs warm when it is cold outside.

ShopForPuppy.com markets to active pets and the active lifestyle, and that’s why we are pleased that Kyjen has designed outdoor gear for dogs.  The Outward Hound ThermoVests are available in five sizes to fit all dogs.  The ThermoVest is a thermal, heat-reflective dog vest.  How cool is that?  Or should I say, how warm is that?
