A great thing to know and practice is letting the dog do most of the work getting back into the boat. It works best with boat setups that have the spare oars hanging off the side of the frame. When the dog swims up to the side of the boat reach out and put your hand behind their head. They can brace off your hand and get their front paws on the oar. This allows them to climb up in to The boat under their own power and keeps you from pulling them up sideway while they fight you the whole time. It does take some practice but it's amazing once you and the dog figure out the technique. It's kind of like the canine version of the hand of god.

I've seen these around. Don't have a dog but have been on a few trips with friend with their dogs wearing them. Looks like good under belly protection.

I had to get one real quick for a trip. Went to Cabelas and the only ones they had were their brand. Pretty shitty IMHO... Definitely NOT worth the 50 bucks I spent on it. But, it worked.

My question is (and sorry to poach the thread) Do yall find your *male* dogs pissing all over the belly section of the PFDs? Ive got a 60-65 lb husky/german shep and he always does. Granted he's got a bigger weewee than I do but damn, wondering if this is a common case for puppyFDs....

"Yeah I called her up, she gave me a bunch of crap about me not listenin' to her enough, or somethin'. I don't know, I wasn't really payin' attention."
