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: 5/5
An exceptionally designed floatation device.

Durability: 5/5
Tough ripstop is certainly strong and the top handle can support our dog’s weight without concern.

Price: 5/5
If you want the best.

    You saved my puppy!!!

    I purchased my 9-week old puppy’s life jacket on Tuesday morning, and it was delivered at my door the next morning. Being in a so called “outlying area” this is no mean feat, and i would like to thank the team at DogOnline and The Courier Guy for their efficiency. More importantly, Cooper was wearing her life jacket when she fell into the swimming pool this morning and i am happy to report that she floated comfortably (albeit very frightened) until i could help her out. The jacket is comfortable, easy to put on, and impossible to get out of. And it’s buoyancy is top notch, even with a hysterical puppy inside. Thank you, DogOnline.

    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.

    We attempt to charge the most realistic prices for delivery. We source quotes from 3 courier companies to provide you with the fastest delivery time. We’ve averaged the best of 3 quotes and this is the amount we charge you.

    The best way to check your actual shipping charges is to add items to your cart and proceed to checkout. Shipping methods and rates are based on the volumetric-weight of your cart contents and shipping location.

    * Small Courier Sleeve: We use a stadard courier sleeve, but sometimes our system thinks your item won’t fit. We reserve the right to charge shipping in that case.

    ** FREE shipping exclusion: Barking Mad & DogtownSA appreciate all your support. Their products are marked up from cost but not enough to allow for free shipping to be built into their costing as this would destroy their profit margin. Thus if an order contains products from the Dogtown category, shipping will be charged even it’s value is over R399 to maximise the benefit to DogtownSA.
