I think the husband and the dog were swimming towards the shore and thought the wife was swimming behind them, when in fact her jack line snagged the rudder. A dog in a life jacket is almost always better off than a human due to higher buoyancy and higher endurance.

I would assume this is always the correct etiquette for these sort of situations.
