Hi all! Summertime is finally here and Tonka looooves the water, however *shocker!* he has no swimming instinct what so ever. Lifejacket it is! But which one? We've tried on a few brands here at the pet stores and the mediums seem to fit perfectly but he's 5 months an 35lbs so I give it month and he would be into a large, thus I have decided to go with the large no matter what. I would like to know about your thoughts on the different life jacket brands and which ones fit or float better than the others as I know there's lots out here and most were definitely not made with the bully shape in mind! Thanks!
Delilah has a life jacket, but I'm not exactly thrilled with it. Her front end is too top heavy..it still leans forward to much for her liking when she's wearing it. Her nose got in the water one time and now she will not swim. x.x I want a really good one for her. We have a boat and I really want her to actually enjoy swimming.
We got the same brand for Stig. It's pretty good. I think one member here recommended something that has a really sturdy top handle, in case you need to carry them out of the water. If you can find those, that would be even better.

Aw just saw the pics..love 'em! Especially the Doggles one. I wanted to get those for Delilah, but she threw a FIT!
@JeannieCO has lifejackets for her gang whenever they go boating. Maybe she'll have some input!
You need @JeannieCO! I usually hate to make anyone "talk" to her because..well..:shhhh: ..she's nuts! but unfortunately she knows life jackets!
Hi there!! Don't mind her, between you and me she's a bit, well, she's a bit....... CRAZY!!!
I'm short on time but and will respond more in depth later tonight but yes I've been using life jackets for my dogs for over 10 years. The bullies are new to the water for me since last summer. There's quite a few of us that have jackets. I get mine from a company called Ruff Wear. I am currently looking for another style as for Bullies these are a bit stiff and don't offer any front head floatation. I found a few and will update that too tonight.
As you can see he prefer to shoreline it. Emma will be my swimmer though!
