Our '4u' range of polka dot and electra glo dog life jacketsBeing safe doesn't mean you can't be stylish too!

Of course every dog (and cat) should be fitted with a life jacket any time they're near water.

Now, at the same time your pooch is absolutely safe it can also look absolutely fabulous in a pink polka dot, blue polka dot or yellow electra glo life jacket!

People will tell you dogs can swim and therefore don't need life jackets. This is true - as far as it goes (which isn't very far!). The fact that the dog is in water will start to compromise its swimming ability. The cold temperature will quickly use the dog's energy and reduce its strength; its coat will soon weigh it down. And a heavy sea will permit it little chance of survival before rescue is at hand. Having a life jacket will create some extra time for rescue; the grab handle, integral to the life jacket, will make your dog an easier target for securing by hand or boathook. And if your pooch has just gone for a swim in calm waters, he can float until he's hauled back aboard. The luminescent quality of the jacket - together with the highly-reflective strips (and polka dots!), will make your dog more easily spotted in low-light situations.

It's difficult to think of any arguments against a dog life jacket! They're inexpensive now - they could be priceless tomorrow! And the jackets in our '4u' polka dot and electra glo fashion range look sensational too!

These jackets are also fabulous as warmth coats for pooches on cold evening walks - no more excuses, just slip it on your pooch - three clicks of the snap-click fastenings and you're away-to-go! - the amazing insulation will ensure you both enjoy that brisk walk around the park!
