These Mermaid Life Jackets For Dogs Are The Cutest Thing You’ll See This Summer

Your dog needs this!

Everyone loves mermaids, and now your pooch can get in on the fun with these adorable mermaid life jackets. Your pup will look that much cuter doing the doggie paddle while wearing one of these magical life jackets that gives her a beautiful mermaid tail.

These mermaid life jackets are available on Amazon for $29.99, and they come in small, medium, and large sizes.

The life jacket comes with adjustable velcro and a buckle, so you can tweak the fit to perfectly suit your dog. It features a PVC rubber handle for easy drying and storage.

Not only will your furry friend make a major fashion statement at the pool with one of these this summer, but it also ensures safe swimming. The front flotation design with reflective strips for visibility features thick foam to help your pup float more easily, as well as a neck pad to hold up her head.

While some dogs take to the water like a duck, other pups need a little help learning to swim. A life jacket designed for canines can help them get used to aquatic life the same way it would for a human.

Remember, not all dogs are good swimmers or take to the water “naturally,” regardless of their breed. Instragram user @thewalkingdognc reminds us that dogs are heavier in the water and don’t understand how to save their energy while swimming, so they should always wear life preservers.

So ease your furry friend in the water slowly. After all, you want her to enjoy it as much as you do, right?

Your dog should wear a life jacket for more than just swimming. Whether you’re out on the ocean or in a small lake, the American Kennel Club recommends that your dog wear one at all times while accompanying you on a boat.

How To Buy A Life Jacket For Your Dog

When choosing a life jacket, the organization says it should have a handle as well as a D-ring for attaching a leash. The mermaid life jacket meets both of those requirements.

The American Kennel Club also recommends life jackets for dogs bright colors and a reflective strip, and this one has both of those features as well. After all, you want to be able to see your pooch in any water!

Of course, not every pup will enjoy being in the water. Like humans, some dogs are just land-lubbers.
