Doggos on the River

Keeping your pooch prepared for the river is important weather its hanging out at the part or heading down river.  The River Store cares about your 4 legged friend and would like to help you find the right PFD for the task.

We carry a wide range of CFD’s (canine floatation Devices) both in sizes and brands, not every dog is the same and this allows us to fit your pooch better.   All the jackets we carry are great at keeping your dog up and give them the ability to swim themselves in. The vests all come with strong handles and ample floatation.

MTI Under Dog


  • first ergonomically designed buoyancy aid for the swimming canine.

Traditional dog vests pull the body into a horizontal position. With the underDOG the rear is allowed to sink lower than the forelegs, freeing the hind legs to swim more efficiently, while the neck is supported so that the head rides higher above the water line. It works with your dog so they are less fatigued after a long swim – they would tell you so if they could!
