Win an Outward Hound Life Jacket for your dog!

Safety for pets is just as important when engaging in water activities

If spending time on the water is in your (and your dog’s) plans this coming summer, safety is a must. For the same reason you wear a life jacket, so should your dog. Whether you’re boating, kayaking, or even paddle-boarding with your pup, the Outward Hound Life Jackets from Kyjen help make water sport activities safe!

Outward Hound Life Jacket for Pets by Kyjen

Each life jacket is fully adjustable with clips and a comfortable belly band to keep your dog safe and secure. secures your dog and available in 2 bright colors (orange and pink). Should your dog need to be rescued, the top handle can easily be grabbed by hand or boat hook to safely bring your dog back to you. And for dogs who aren’t skillful swimmers, the front float helps to always keep his or her head above water. For optimal safety, purchasing the right size life jacket is important, and each life jacket size depends on the girth of the dog (the area around the widest part of your dog’s rib cage).

Keeping your dog safe during water activities means one less thing for you to worry about — and more time having fun!

    If the weather stays warm, we’ll also take them to the beach for a quick dip in surf. Our 10 month old Border Terrier, “Braker”, is especially fond of the water! He weighs 23 lbs at this point and if he wins, would LOVE a bright orange life jacket, size M, please 🙂

    no plans other than spend time with Family !


    We will be taking out our boat on the lake with family this holiday. We recently just rescued another bulldog, but we only have the one lifevest – receiving another one would be great!

  11. My dog and I are going to the lake and start playing in the water some.. Not too much – I plan to wear a wet suit so I won’t get scratched too bad – He is barely over a year old and started his water training last year when he was small and this year will be fun – he loves water!!! Love chasing the hose, love swimming.. It will be great and he boats with us Too!!! Such a wonderful Rescued Lab !!

  12. We will be playing ball and eating grilled food – OOPS!!! He loves to fetch a ball in the lake or ground – not sure if it will be warm enough to take him to the lake yet?? Maybe though!! We all love it!!!

  13. This would be perfect for our Chocolate Lab! He loves to swim and jump off the boat when we go out on the lake (which we will probably do this weekend and lots more to come), but I still worry about him. So I’d love to get one of these for him! (Outward Hound Life Jacket Large Orange #60963)

  14. My miniature schnauzer Maylee and I are going to get together with our extended family and all the fur kids this weekend! If the weather permits next week, we will go fishing with my grandparents on Gun Lake! Maylee would like a size small, because she is 16 lbs. and has a 20″ girth. She loves to be by the water. Thank you!

  15. We are taking our dog with us to go look at wedding venues this weekend! The hotel happens to even be pet friendly! Who knows, maybe he’ll be a ring bearer. He’s 45 pounds and a whole lot of love. Happy holiday weekend to your staff!
