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.

Dog Life Jacket

Our Gracie is loving the life jacket and will not stay out of the pool once she has it on. In the beginning she was not happy, just like when we put on a winter jacket, but now for the life jacket, she actually stands still to put it on when she sees it being handled.

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.

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.
