Does My Dog Need A Life Jacket?
If you dog loves to play in the water during the summer months you should ask yourself does my dog need a life jacket. Some canines while they love the water, they have a hard time treading especially smaller dogs tend to sink more than the larger breeds especially snubbed nosed dogs. One of the best ways to get around having your dog sinking in the water is with a life vest/jacket.
What Are The Benefits?
There are a lot of health benefits for swimming with your dog. Dog that suffer from hip dysplasia Corgis for instance you can see the benefits immediately by relieving the stress off their hips while they are in the water. If your dog has gained a little weight over the winter swimming is a great exercise for them shedding those unwanted pounds. If you have an older dog or one that really enjoys swimming having a life jacket can promote a new healthy lifestyle for you and your dog.
