Dog life jacket

Can I get some help picking a dog life jacket for my 35 lb. Lab mix. Will be going offshore.

Second Ruff Wear. Our Border Collie swears by it every time she falls in the water.

Re: Dog life jacket

I have a Crewsaver lifejacket for my collie.
Gets good reviews, and about half the price of the Ruff Wear jacket.
She seems to be comfortable when wearing it.

Re: Dog life jacket

Hard to keep a high energy animal content on a sailboat, Nigel.

So, does she herd white sheep as well as black?

Re: Dog life jacket

Hi Ann,


She is not fussy. On the farm I work her on they have
Cheviots
Swaledales
Texels
Welsh Mountain
Mules (offspring from Swaledale's tupped by a Blue Face Leicester)


Nice thing about Flash is when she is not working, she just chills out.


Not a great picture, it's a still from a video, working mulesClick image for larger version
