Is your pooch a nervous swimmer?

You can now get him or her a nifty life jacket, designed specifically for dogs.

What’s more, it will transform your furry friend into a beautiful, glittering mermaid.

The adorable outfit has a scale-like design, as well as a little fin at the back, turning your pooch into a real life Ariel.

Choose from four different sizes – small, medium, large and extra large – and three colours, including bright pink, ocean blue or luscious green.

The mermaid jacket also features adjustable buckets and a strap at the top so you can help your dog along – or lift them out of the water, if needed.

A small neck pad is also visible at the front to help hold your dog’s head up.

‘Looks sooo pretty on my Shiba puppy and super sparkly under the sun!,’ one buyer wrote in a review.

‘It helped her learn how to swim on her first kayaking/paddle boarding trip.

Watch Out For Your Dogs Feet in the Summer. Hot pavement can burn your dogs paws rather quickly. To see if it’s too hot for your dog place the back of your hand on the pavement – if you can’t hold it there for 5 seconds it’s too hot for your dog. On really hot days consider walking your dog in the woods, on the grass, or waiting til the sun goes down.

‘Love how it doubles as a harness as well.’

The product, sold by Albabara on Amazon Prime, is made from PVC rubber and prices start from £18.

So utterly adorable.
