As for the wrist strap itself - it looks to be well made and I like the visibility it has in the water. I think it will do the job, but, one caution - I have small hands and wrists and this strap cannot adjust small enough to prevent it from easily slipping off my wrist. I got creative and have a modified fix, but if I were using it while snorkeling or in white water, I would still attach a safety cord to it. Also, the little clippy thing that is supposed to allow you to release the camera from the wrist strap easily, is very stiff; I haven't been able to get it to release yet. I'm guessing I will eventually find a way to release it and will be able to soften it up a bit.
All that said, I would definitely buy from Beach Camera again, and, even given the short-comings of the product, would likely, all things considered, choose this product over other similar products.
Unfortunately, that was also the downside. It's HUGE- there's no way you could use it as a regular camera strap. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It's just so big. Even while snorkeling, it was quite bulky, and can't be made small enough for the average woman to wear it on her wrist. I'm of pretty average build and I had to push it almost to my elbow to make it secure. Someone very slender or a child would probably be able to fit it on their upper arm. It fit more snugly on my boyfriend's wrist, but it's still crazy bulky- you're definitely aware you have it on at all times. Good for keeping the camera safe, not great for casual fun in the surf.
I recommend it with the caveat that you should only be expecting to use it when you're actually in/on the water- for land activities, you will definitely want a different strap to keep the camera more secure and your arm comfortable.
It has a toggle lock though which makes it easy to take the band off when you don't need it.
A side note: the little plastic dohickey that tightens and loosens the strap rattles when you pick it up. I am unable to hear it's rattle, and neither can my partner, but our dog goes absolutly bonkers. Running around barking, almost hysterical every time I pick it up. It doesn't detract from the item, it is only ever picked up and packed when in the house and like I said, I really can't hear it. But an interesting side note. I'd still have purchased it if I had known this before hand, but maybe this will explain your dog's actions!
