PetSugar Street Team: Outward Hounds Ride on Boats!

How cute is Sam?! The Wheaten Terrier already found her sea legs thanks to this Outward Hound lifejacket . . . even though she's just a puppy. It's never too early.The insulated vest does double-duty as a flotation device to keep a dog's head above water when swimming or grab the easy handle for quick rescues should she take an unexpected dive. Coming in five sizes ($16 and up) to fit most pups my friend, Traci, says:

Sam gets so excited when we pull it out because it means a boat ride or some watery fun. I'm surprised how well she has taken to the water. Terrier means "earth" so you'd think she'd be all about staying high and dry!

See this adoro pooch on the boat with the wind in her hair (trust me, you want to), and

I have this, too, and love it. And it was so inexpensive!

that's so cute although i don't know if i'd ever be able to get one on my dog. i have a yellow lab and she's always loved to go swimming, but even when we try to put her fleece on to go for her walk in the winter we have trouble, so i'm guessing that this wouldn't 'float her boat' either.

The pugs each had one of these when they were about 4 months old...Baxter just hated it and wouldn't swim, but Tootsie didn't seem to mind it so much! In fact, Tootsie must have really enjoyed swimming, because she jumped in without her vest later that day and, being a pug, nearly sunk like a rock. Scared me to death!

I bought a lifevest for my dog thinking that we would take him kayaking. Unfortch the outing got cancelled so I need another venue for him to sport his lifevest.

that is the cutest picture...Jager has this same vest and has fun swimming at both of his grandparents houses (Bailey is a strong swimmer and does not require a vest)

Awwwww this makes me miss my Wheaten back home! I remember when he used to be this color, too--they get lighter (wheat-colored, hehe) when they get older. This is SO cute! I bet Chester would love a boat ride, he always wants to stick his head out the window in the car!
