I expect you have arrived here after searching the net for deals on Dog Life Jackets? There are a whole lot of 'bargains' to be had on Ebay. But tell me? Is your Surfdog precious to you? If you have or have or had human kids in the past would you have searched the web for cheap products to protect them? Whether it be a car seat or a life jacket??
Problem is that most Dog Life Jackets are made in China and the pet product factories do not understand dogs and understand water even less! They also make products thinking that all customers want is CHEAP! They think if they stick a bit of foam covered in pretty fabric they can call it a Dog Life Jacket even though it will do little to protect your dog in water. Most Dog Life Jackets offer no support under your dog at all - and buoyancy above is less than useless. Do you really think your dog will float if it hangs from that bit of foam on its back???? Don't buy a Dog Life Jacket at all rather than a cheap one! Save your money!
Our Floatation Coat is made by people that make lifejackets for people that kayak! Using all their experience and technology to create a Life Jacket your dog deserves. It can help your dog swim more confidently and for longer and retain their body heat, it also makes them easier to retrieve them from water back to your boat, surfboard or kayak!
Yep you can buy a much Dog Life Jacket ..... then throw it away and buy one of these! With all these great features!
- enclosed harness design cradles your dog and removes pressure from vital points
- enhances natural buoyancy, gives support under the chest
- foam segments with hinges allow better fit and movement (dog are not box shaped!)
- chest panel does not pressure the throat whilst keeping head above water - it is also one integral piece of the jacket so does not flip in your dogs face when swimming
- supports under the chest and minimises upward pressure on the throat when floating and lifting
- tapered panels suit a full range of doggy shapes- check out the images! Cut high under the dog to prevent 'doodle' issues for the boys!!
- secures firmly with double strapping
- leash attachment and lifting handle
- waterproof reflective tapes
- no velcro!! or awkward fastenings
There is no need to go wild measuring necks and girths and spines and inside legs. The Float Jackets are generous in the chest and shoulders so work with your dogs weight as a starting point. The fit should be quite snug so it does not move around in the water and impede your dog's movement.
If if you are unsure or confused, we'll do our best to help out. If you can give us an idea of your dog's size relative to the breeds listed on our sizing chart and an estimation of its weight that is most useful. If in doubt please contact us on the "contact us" link you see below, we never have any problem with exchanges as long as returned with all labels attached etc but lets try and get it right!

THE ENCLOSED HARNESS DESIGN IS SAFER AND MORE COMFORTABLE THAN OTHER CANINE LIFE JACKETS
Getting a good fit in any life jacket, human or canine, is important to its effectiveness.
The main difference is that this harness is enclosed all around your dog's body rather than having an opening under the front legs. It's a small difference, but an important one.
The enclosed harness supports your dog better in the water, balances out their natural buoyancy by supporting the heavier chest and shoulder areas from beneath, and makes for safer, more comfortable lifting in dog overboard situations.
