While we're busy hitting the beach or lounging poolside, it's easy to forget about our furry friends during the warmer months. Whether they love to swim in the lake or play in the pool, it's important to ensure that your pet can safely enjoy the water.

The OSPCA recommends dog life vests because "dogs can get cramps just like we can, or they can get tired too far from shore. Even if a strong swimmer, there may be a strong current, and you can’t always know your dog’s stamina."

If you're looking to add a life vest to your pet's summer essentials, you may want to check out Amazon Canada. The EMUST Dog Life Jacket is a top-reviewed item and a "godsend for summer," according to shoppers — and select colours and sizes are also currently on sale.

Read on to learn why this dog life jacket is a shopper favourite.

The details

However, some shoppers recommend going up a size as the jacket tends to run small.

"It runs small," wrote a customer. They recommend "sizing up for a more comfy fit."

"If you're unsure, size up," echoes another, who ordered their dog's usual size and found it to be snug around their stomach.

The verdict

If you're looking for a way to keep your pet both safe and cool this summer, the EMUST Dog Life Jacket is an excellent option.

Shoppers love the simple design and how it gives them peace of mind that their pet will stay afloat in the water. However, if you're unsure which size to get, you may want to purchase one size up to achieve an optimal fit.
