Don’t Need It, But Want It: Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

Shark Fin Life Jacket For Dogs

 

If you take your canine best friend everywhere and do everything with him–including swim–then it’s time to get him a life vest of his own, just in case. What better one than this Shark Fin life jacket that keeps him afloat while making him look like the most adorable doggy that ever lived?

As the name implies, the life jacket has a little shark’s fin at the back, which you can use to help pull your dog out of the water if you need to. The life jacket keeps your dog afloat, whether or not he’s doing the doggie paddle or not. With the life jacket on, you don’t have to worry about him going under, although you should keep a close eye on him while he’s in the water with you.

The Shark Fin life jacket costs $39.98.
