Another thought- Fuel his fire... bring lots of doggy snacks! One of the first things you do for a hypothermic/cold person is to make sure they are hydrated and have eaten some good high-calorie, easy-to-digest food. Not sure about dog physiology, but I'd imagine keeping calories up could help with the internal heater. When I take my dog out skiing, etc, I make sure to bring plenty of treats.

I have a "blue" pit bull - he keeps warm with a cabela's vests - the camo one with the floatation - it works great he was out swimming in the ark last week with ice floating around. It will also fit under his NRS life jacket. The only problem i have found with the vest is for a dog with a 38" chest and a 25" waist they do not fit the best around the waist but for a "normal" lab type dog they should fit well.
