The only thing that could make a summer day in the water even better is having your best friend beside you. And now, you don't have to leave your pooch out – because you can get them their own pool floats!
This seems like something you'd see Elle Woods break out in Legally Blonde, but I promise you these dog-sized pool floats are real products you can actually buy. They're made and sold by BarkBox, the same company behind the pup-approved subscription boxes you probably see all over Instagram.
BarkBox collaborated with Funboy to create two dog pool floats (and matching floats for humans) that they released in 2018. The Convertible Dog Float and the Yacht Dog Float are both made of thick, durable plastic and can hold up to 70 lbs. They have built-in treats compartments, and I know a few dog moms who would absolutely get a kick out of them. They're sold out at BarkBox for now, but if you enter the email on both product pages, they'll let you know if and when they're ever back in stock online.
However, if you're looking for something you can buy right away, check this out. A few of the more durable pool floats on the market can absolutely be used for dogs, but this Swimways Paddle Paws Pool Float is specifically designed for our best four-legged friends. It comes in two sizes and starts at $48.99, and the entire thing is puncture-resistant, so you don't have to worry about your pup causing any accidents.
And if those Funboy floats are ever back in stock, know that BarkBox charges a $5 flat rate shipping fee for Canadian orders – but that's a small price to pay for something this incredible. If you order the Swimways float through Amazon, you should qualify for free shipping, since both floats are over $35.
