Hunter – Moss Life Jacket
Many dogs are like ducks to water. They jump into every puddle they see, swim in streams and lakes, and some even like to jump into the bath with their owners! Their love of water makes dogs the perfect companions on boat trips. To guarantee better safety (for your dog) and better peace of mind (for you) we present you with the Moss life jacket. The chest strap and the two stomach straps are adjustable for the perfect fit. The safety clicking catches ensure that the belt won’t accidentally open while your dog is swimming about. You can quickly drag your dog back to the boat using the handle if necessary. The Moss life jacket is bright red so that it is highly visible. It is also reflective to guarantee even better safety. By purchasing a life jacket, you are investing in your dog’s safety and making sure that you and your best bud will have plenty of carefree fun when the pair of you go swimming. The Moss life jacket is available in five sizes. Dogs who weigh between 5 and 25 kg can wear it.
