Yep, I should have said both PFD
with handles and
a lifting harness. We rarely needed to actually insert dog A in PFD
B, but they always had a harness on. Re-learned that one night when one of the Goldens mis-understood how wide finger piers are (NOT) in the dark. Took a major effort to scoop him up onto our swim platform, about wore us both out.
