Life Vests Keep Pets Safe On Open Waters
There are two kinds of people who prefer private travel by boat: those seeking serenity, and those who embrace adventure. Now, a boat can be a luxury yacht navigating the open sea, an elegant sailboat exploring waterways and bays, a houseboat floating on a lazy river, or even an airboat speeding through marshland. As different as the vessels are, one bond that ties many of these people is a desire to share the journey with their pet.
Making the journey safe for dogs and cats should be priority number one. Something like a slight shift in the wind or suddenly rough seas can send pets (and people) overboard. Outfitting a pet with Life vests by Paws Aboard provides that safety, all while making a fashion statement.
The Paws Aboard Pet Life Jacket and Designer Pet Life Jackets are designed to provide ultimate buoyancy and high visibility. They are made with a breathable mesh underbelly that keeps dogs and cats more comfortable than other life vests on the market. The design allows for proper draining and drying.
The jackets also have reflective strips for easier spotting in the water, a handle on the top so the pet can be easily grabbed from the water, quick release buckles and more.
There are several bright colors and fun designs to choose from, adding a little fun and artistic expression to each pet's vest.
Pet Life Jacket and Designer Pet Life Jackets come in a variety of sizes. A chart on the manufacturer's website helps consumers choose the right fit for their dog or cat. The vests range in price from $24 - $50, depending on size. Paws Aboard Life Jackets are available in yachting and specialty pet supply stores throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Canada. They can also be purchased online through their site, pawsaboard.com, as well as other online stores, such as thecatandkittenstore.com.
Paws Aboard offers another safety item worth mentioning, The Doggy Boat Ladder. This helps reduce pain and strain for both dogs and their guardians. It is lightweight, portable, attaches easily to boats and folds in half for easy storage. The ladder retails for around $250.
