When you are looking to keep your dog safe in water do not settle for a conventional 'Dog Lifejacket" usually foam covered in fabric with a handle stitched to the top, often with just nylon straps in the belly. This Dog Lifejacket has a unique enclosed lifting Harness which the lifejacket is created around, to securely lift the dog from the water and a padded chest panel between the front legs to prevent them slipping out and provide crucial head support while in water. Its conventional counterparts have an open gap between the front legs, potentially causing their heavy head and chest area to sink. This Dog Lifejacket's closed design allows for better buoyancy, security, and comfort while being lifted, with flotation in the under-chest panel providing support to the heavier shoulder area and raising the head to remain above water. Additionally, the handle is firmly attached to the full harness to secure the dog, and there is a padded chest and belly panel and reduce discomfort.
Dog Lifejacket sizing see below
We make 6 sizes from XS for Chihuahua’s to XL for Larger dogs like Newfoundlands.
The only Dog Lifejacket with an Enclosed lifting Harness to safely lift your dog from the water and a padded chest panel between the front legs to stop them slipping out and give vital head support in water.
- Conventional jackets are open between the front legs, which can cause the heavy head and chest area to sink and fall through that gap - so we closed it with a continuous articulated chest and belly panel
- The enclosed design is better for buoyancy, security and comfort, particularly when being lifted
- Flotation in the under-chest panel supports the heavier shoulder area and helps keep the head higher in the water
- Attaching the handle to the full harness (not just the fabric) supports the dog fully, secures them firmly and eases pressure on soft issue
A dog Lifejacket inspired by kayaking and wake boarding vests, Float Doggy is created in collaboration with experts in buoyancy and canine anatomy and biomechanics.
Our patented Dog Lifejacket is a combination of structural design, material choices and careful construction are designed to provide a secure, ergonomic and comfortable fit and balanced flotation for joyful, confident doggy paddling.
Dog Lifejacket SIZING.
Our sizing is based primarily on the weight and dimensions of your dog’s body. Because the shaping and dual adjustments help absorb deep chests, broad shoulders and all kinds of variance in shape we suggest looking at the weight indications and the shape references in our SIZING CHART BELOW as a starting point.
We love scruffy faces, fluffy tails and know your dog might have unusually long or short legs, but because we’re not making hats and pants (yet), we really focus on their torso shape when fitting Float Doggy. Compare them to the general body types in the sizing chart if not the specific breed.
If you have a French Bulldog, Boston Terrier, British Bulldog, Staffordshire or other heavy set breed we have wide fits in Small and Medium just for you. These also work for dogs that are broader around the neck and shoulders but not longer in the body such as heavier set Collies or Heelers.

If you’re unsure or confused email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to help out:
--Please include a photograph of your dog, standing side on to the camera so we can best help you.
--If you include a neck measurement take it where their neck starts to join their body where the jacket will sit
--If you are including a girth measurement, measure around behind the front legs
--No need to measure nose to tail, just from the top of their shoulders to their tails is fine
