Advanced Dog Life Jacket

I have been away and have not yet been able to use them but delivery was quick and the life jackets seem to fit well. I will be putting them to the test this weekend.

Dog Life Jacket

I recently bought two life jackets and what a great product! The jacket itself is very secure with a double fastening system which ensures that your dog is confident to swim and even walk about when not in the water. I like the handle on top, helps when to guide them while swimming too deep. Red and yellow are nice colours to have as this is very visible as well. The team at DogOnline really made an effort to keep me smiling and my fur babies very happy and safe. Not only did they replace my first order (which was ordered too big) but made special effort for the second order to fit just perfectly. Very friendly, accommodating and deserves more than just a good review but more support! A special thank you to Paul and Charmaine, I appreciate your time and efforts by helping me.

Yay!😻

Purposefully designed life jacket to aid your pet with flotation in water. Features bright florescent material and reflective strips. Has a sturdy handle to assist your pet with getting in or out of the water.  Easy fit with Velcro and re-sizeable webbing under-straps, and adjustable girth size.  Quick releases on neck and body. Read our Don’t all dogs know how to swim? blog post.

Important: Test your product in a safe environment prior to use. Flotation material can be adjusted to be suitable for your pet’s weight so kindly inform us of all relevant details (weight and girth) for a correct fit when placing an order.  Please keep the size of your pet in mind when selecting a product. Make sure that it will be a comfortable fit for your pet. If in doubt as to which size is best for your pet or if you have any questions please feel free to email your comments and questions. The contact-us section is monitored by our in-house dog trainers with years of experience to give you expert advice.

EDITOR’S HONEST OPINION – BY Paul

I’m not supposed to say this is the best life jacket out there. But our dogs can say whatever they like.

Overall Woof Rating:
An exceptionally designed floatation device.

Durability:
Tough ripstop is certainly strong and the top handle can support our dog’s weight without concern.

Price:
If you want good quality…

How do I measure my dog?

dog-measurment-guide-picture

It is essential that this garment fits your pet properly. Ensure you monitor the body temperature of your pet as over-heating can happen quickly and be extremely dangerous to your pet’s health.

Length: Measure from the base of the tail along the spine. Run the measuring tape along the spine and finish between the shoulder blades at the base of the neck. The length of the life jacket must be 5-12cm shorter than the measured length to ensure the safest fit for your dog. Do not cover your dog’s tail base as this is his swimming rudder.

Girth: This is the widest point around the dog’s chest. It should be just behind the leg around his chest and over his back.

Size Girth (cm) Length (cm) Max Weight (kg)
XX-Small 30 – 35 14 2
X-Small 35 – 40 21 4
Small 45 – 51 29 8
Medium 57 – 67 39 10
Medium Large 67 – 75 45 15
Large 75 – 87 51 28
X-Large 105 – 117 84 55

IMPORTANT: Please keep the size of your pet in mind when selecting a product. Make sure that it will be a comfortable fit for your pet. If in doubt as to which size is best for your pet or if you have any questions please feel free to post your comments and questions on the QnA tab. The comments section is monitored by our in-house dog trainers with years of experience to give you expert advice.

We started making custom order beds in 2008.

With a small website, a dedicated director and family for support, we’ve migrated to several shopping platforms and this flavour was launched in 2018. Our catalogue might not be as big as some get-a-lot retailers, but our stuff is made (or sourced) with love.

Designed to be versatile

Personally, we try and test every item on this site. We hope these reviews give you an honest opinion about how we (or our furry kids) found the product.
