Review: Ruffwear Float Coat

When running rapids or initiating a young pup, Ruffwear’s Float Coat puts the mind at ease—even as it disquiets the dog, at least the first time you slip it on. But with timid youngsters, the confidence boost is invaluable for a long, happy life on the water. In addition to the hi-vis color and trim, a beefy grab-handle allows you to yank the dog up into the boat or onto the paddleboard. Available at Dee-O-Gee; $80.
