    Joey loves to swim, but is not very strong, I'd like to put a harness on him to go out on a boat safely , and I have seen some where there is a handle on the back, so we could lift him in and out of the water by the back handle

    Has anyone used one of these and is there a weight limit?

    Joeys weighs about 10 kgs

    Its a life jacket for dogs, thats a good idea, and it has the handle on the back
    I worked out for joey a medium size inclusive of vat would be about £35

    cant afford it for a couple of months , but we're not going on the boat til then, great idea , thanks for finding it !
