Summer Water Fun with the Hurtta Life Savior!

It's finally warming up here and one way Phoenix loves to beat the heat is by swimming! She really enjoys fetching things out of the river and she could do this for hours. It's fun to watch her swim and she has a great time but sometimes she gets so into it that it's hard to tell when she's getting tired. Safety in the water is really important to me and we were really excited when one of our favoritge brands offered the perfect solution: Life Savior

The Life Savior, is a  new generation streamlined life jacket for dogs, made by Hurtta. This life jacket is ideal for swimming, water rescue, rehabilitation, boating and hunting. The special design of the floats make the jacket very light and ensure a comfortable fit. The light design of the jacket allows for freedom of movement for your dog in water and on land. I love how light weight the jacket is. Our swimming spot is a bit of a trek for us and the light weight design is very helpful. Phoenix can either wear the jacket as we're hiking or I can carry it. Even soaking wet, the jacket is light.

The buoyancy of this life jacket has been thoroughly tested by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The life jacket has an adjustable belt and front that allow it to fit most breeds of dog. The back of the jacket is fitted with sturdy handle by which the dog can be guided in the water or lifted out. A protective underbelly section distributes the dog's weight over a larger area and keeps the jacket firmly in place. The reflective fabric and 3M reflectors on the back of the jacket provide visibility in the dark.

We had an awesome time testing this life jacket and I noticed a huge difference in Phoenix's confidence in the water. I could tell that the life jacket was helping to make her buoyant and swim more correctly (sometimes her back end sinks). I love the feeling of safety that this life jacket provided me with. Phoenix can now play as much as she wants in the water without me worrying that she might get too tired. I also really love sturdy the handle is on the back of the jacket, I was able to lift her completely out of the water with it. The Life Savior is a very sturdy life jacket and I can tell we will get a lot of use out of it!

If your dog spends a lot of time swimming or near the water, I would highly recommend checking out the Hurtta Life Savior! Life jackets save lives!

  1. Crikey ..... what a comfortable looking life jacket. I like to swim but I'm not very good at it. This would really help me.

  2. I've been planning on getting life jackets for both of my boys. Soon we're hopefully going to have more opportunities to take them places they can swim. I've been eyeing the ones by Ruffwear but I might have to look into these Hurtta ones now. I just wish they came in more colors!

  3. Our Little Bit had her own jacket too. We have large bodies of water on the delta and wanted to make sure she was as safe as she could be. She was too.

    Have a woof woof day you two. My best to your mom. ☺

  4. I think this is a great idea for dogs that swim a lot. You can't be too careful, especially with dogs that will just go and go, and you just can't be sure when they might be getting too tired. Our golden Sheba would have swam all day if I'd let her!

  5. It's so important to keep pets safe near or in the water. My dogs go in the water, although so far they don't actually swim they just kind of wade in. They could easily get carried further out though. A life jacket is such a great safety tool, this one is really gorgeous!
