This is what hunting and active dogs should wear. They should have reflective paint on it so that the owner can see the pet in the dark. If you take your dog hunting or fishing, then get a life jacket or vest for him. Afterall, his safety is just as important as yours if not more right? Oh and don't forget to carry afirst aid kit while you're at it.
