You probably didn’t know, but manufacturers also make personal floatation devices for dogs. It does not matter whether you and your dog can swim safely; getting a buoyancy jacket is highly recommended. There are instances where your dog might jump off the kayak scared. This is where the floatation device comes into play, keeping your dog afloat.
These floatation devices always feature a handle at the back for easy picking of your dog back into the kayak. The handle also helps steer the dog to safety when it is too heavy to lift. I recommend you to read the dog’s kayak reviews article which i found interesting from Cotrout.org
