Taking my pet for a swim

Hi guys, I'm taking my pet for fishing and while we are at the lake I'm thinking of swimming there also. I want to ask is there a life jacket for a Chihuahua?

    I have one for my Cattle Dog.   I don’t use for swimming bu5 while boating. I’m sure there is

    Summertimes and dogs in the lake, just be careful. We dont use them in crotch deep or more when hunting in the winter

    Get the one with the 27/0 circle hook built in......
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    Bet you could catch a pretty good size catfish with one of those!
      On a side note, When is gator season? Asking for a friend.

    If you do buy one, be sure to test it if you're just using it in case of an emergency.  We bought one for our blind rat terrier who we sometimes take on the boat.  One day we stopped to swim and decided to take her in the water and see how her life jacket worked.  Even after several adjustments, we found that it tilted her forward and held her nose under the water.
