These small and large spring floats are pawsitively awesome, according to 1,500+ five-star reviewers. "Best dog purchase ever," wrote one fan who bought the small. "My dog would get mad in the summertime if we did not have this floatie out and ready in the pool for her! If it was on the deck, she would push it in. ... She was apprehensive at first, but eventually loved it. She will even lay in it in the yard. She has jumped from the deck to the middle of the pool and landed on this; she has been swimming and clawed her way up into this as well. No rips, tears or leaks. She is 62 pounds."
Snag the human version too!
Some dogs prefer to buddy up. A happy pet parent shared: "My dogs love this float! I have an Australian Shepherd and a Frenchie. They play together on the float. I thought for sure that it wouldn’t last a week. To my surprise it has held up under rough play and dog claws. I’m very impressed!!!!!"
This sturdy choice will create endless fun for your big dog. Want to see it in action? Check out the sweet pics from this shopper, who wrote: "I bought this for my 16-year-old husky to enjoy the lake since he loves to go but can't keep up like he used to. Having it be stable and sturdy was very important to me for his safety! This float surpassed my expectations! It was big enough for my 50 lb 6 month puppy to fit with him and stable enough that the pup didn't flip the float when getting up and down and jumping off of it, plus durable enough that their claws didn't damage the material at all."
Good luck getting them off of this thing... "I think I've created a monster," wrote a five-star reviewer. "Every time I get in the pool, my dogs cry for me to get them in the raft and float them around the pool. LOL."
When your little one needs a vacay, this Insta-ready set is a great choice. "This may change your dogs life," wrote a grateful shopper. "Amazingly solid and stable. Resists the sun well and most of all it might just change your dog's life. My little yellow dog was an anxious wreck. But just one session relaxing in the pool was all it took and she was hooked. She begs to get in now. I've never seen this dog take a solid 20 seconds to relax. It's either worried or asleep. But in the pool she is a different dog."
