    Fortis now wears the Portage float coat by Ruff Wear. My main reason for opting to use a float was of course safety. But what I discovered is that the float coat allows him to swim for much longer periods. He doesn’t tire nearly as quickly and we all know how important exercise is for our pups. I feel this is a huge benefit. The coat has an athletic fit and Fortis doesn’t at all mind wearing it. Another benefit I didn’t take into consideration was how much more visible he is to boaters. This past weekend was the 4th of July and lots of boats were on the water. I felt much more at ease knowing he could be seen.
