The dog days of summer are upon us. When your pet’s not romping about at his favorite dog boarding facility, a poolside hangout is the next best way to beat the heat.
If you have the kind of pet that loves to swim and is reluctant to take a breather when he needs to, then these doggie pool floats may just be the best thing ever invented.
Most people may not realize the benefits of a good dog float. Not all pets are born swimmers. Doggie floats are a great way to keep your pet safe as he takes a dip. They also offer an effective way to relax and alleviate any stress.
If the smell of wet fur invokes less than warm, fuzzy feelings, a pool raft will keep your dog dry as a bone, allowing him to enjoy plenty of quality float time with the family. You can also rest assured that your pooch won’t be taking in any harsh or unwanted chemicals from the water filter, either.
The Barking Lot did some shopping around for doggie pool floats and discovered there are all different colors, shapes and sizes. And depending on your preference, you’ll find a raft that’s right for your pet. Some are even made to match your own! Here are a few that we found.
Paws Aboard Doggy Dog Pool Float Lazy Water Raft:
This 50×39 inch float is big enough to accommodate pups weighing up to 90 pounds. The Doggy Dog Pool Float is made of thick, vinyl fabric that can withstand the playful pawing of your pet and still remain steady as he floats.
Easy to inflate, this raft can be put up and taken down with ease.
Kelsyus Floating Lounger:
Imagine your dog lounging on his very own pool float complete with a foot and backrest. And at 56X38X5.5 inches the Kelsyus Floating Lounger not only accommodates for dogs, but their human family members, too. Other features include side clips to attach to a dock, boat or even another floater. This raft also comes equipped with cup holders. Made with a durable fabric covering, the lounger’s mesh seating is designed to keep you and your pooch cool on hot, summer days.
Intex River Run I Sport Lounge:
Your dog can spread out his paws and relax on the Intex 53-inch pool float. A backrest and mesh bottom offer a comfortable ride, while the raft’s rope and clips provide a safe way to teether.
Intex Sport Lounge’s sturdy, long-lasting material supports humans and dogs up to 250 pounds and its smart jet valve technology makes inflating and deflating a breeze.
Funboy X Bark Pool Floats:
Matching inflatable rafts by Bark Shop and Fun Boy are sure to be this summer’s hottest item. Poolside hangouts with your furry friend don’t get any better than this. The dog float’s durable, puncture-resistant vinyl can withstand your pet’s prancing and pawing and hold small-to-medium size pets up to 70 pounds.
The identical rafts are available in two styles: a pink convertible and white yacht with gold racing stripe.
