|ruffwear makes some nice doggy lifejackets, though in such a shallow river I wouldn't worry too much.
There's a story my grandpa likes to tell about a dog his dad had when grandpa was a boy, they were out fishing in the Columbia River (BIG, deep, coldwater river) and had the dog (his name was Beemo, and he was a Border Collie) with them. They're tootling along, when someone notices that Beemo is gone. "Where's the dog?" They look back, and see a flash of white muzzle waaaaay back behind them. He'd fallen off the boat and been swimming for almost a mile! Poor guy. They didn't have dog lifejackets back then. (Heck, humans didn't wear them either.) They were able to turn around and go back for him, thank goodness.
