Best life jacket!

We love our Float Coat! It has given Barkley confidence in the water. The handle is so helpful when he slips off the paddle board and we need to scoop him back up! It's super adjustable, easy to clean, quick drying, and also makes Barkley ultra visible with it's bright orange color!

Great! The handle makes it easy to scoop up my puppy even when he is overly excited or anxious in the water!
