Dog Life Jackets

The Stunt Puppy Dog Lifejackets. 

This unique design is the only fully enclosed dog life jacket available. Based on experience in designing whitewater gear with the aim of making a human grade life jacket for dogs. No shark fins, no glitter, no thin ‘pretty’ fabric, no gaping hole under the chest, no velcro; just ergonomic fit, (that means they are dog shaped not box shaped!) balanced buoyancy and a secure lifting harness which is not stitched to the fabric but its own independent harness  for safe lifting. 

 

  • 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 supports the dog fully, secures them firmly and eases pressure on soft issue

Trimmed And Articulated Panels To Create A More Streamlined Fit

  • Conventional jackets are mostly rectangular with a curve around the neck because that’s cheaper to produce, but rectangles don’t fit around the curves of a dog and single piece buoyancy foam is stiff and awkward
  • Every panel on the Float Doggy is curved to mirror the shape of a dog's body
  • Each Float Doggy panel is articulated for flexibility to improve comfort and movement and give streamlined fit
  • Float Doggy panels uses different densities of foam to best balance flotation and reduce bulk
  • Independent front and rear adjustments allow for different body shapes
  • For best visibility in and around the water we made the top panels brighter and placed waterproof reflective tape on the handle right on top for beacon-like visibility
  • Sizing

Cat Lifejackets. We even have a size for cats! Yes some cats love Kayaking!

Quick Size Guide

  • Start by looking and weight and breed  
  • then look at 2nd chart to ensure your dogs neck and chest cm's fit within the recommended size.

 

The peculiarities of doggy proportions and the fickle nature of buoyancy foam make sizing yourself for a Float Doggy an art and a science. 

Match your measurements to the actual geometry of the lifejacket. You should get closest to the size of your dog. A snug fit prevents the jacket moving around as your dog swims.

2 Springers, 2 different sizes

The help I received from Sara, to get the right sizing for my springer girls , was amazing. So so helpful to make sure all fitted well.
Even sending an extra one to make sure I could see difference in sizing and that fit was what I wanted.
I made sure I posted back the extra one when I knew which one to keep. With the standard of care I received, I certainly wanted pay that care back.
Nothing was too much trouble for this company.
And the PFD’s are awesome. Very comfortable and my girls certainly loved trying them on. The quality is amazing.
I can’t wait to take them out in/on the water with them. Due to a removal of a grass seed at vets last week, we have to wait 6 more days before we can get to the beach.
Once we do I’ll post some photos.
I’m so so happy with this fantastic company 😁😁😁😁😁

Brilliant Life Jacket

Our standard groodle absolutely loves the water & is a great swimmer. We’ve recently purchased a kayak & she comes out in it with us so we thought we should get a life jacket just to be safe.
After a lot of research we chose the stunt puppy jacket from Surf Dog Aust & we could not be happier. Sara was damn fantastic, she phoned me just to be sure on sizing & measurements & even sent pics of her dog in the different sized jackets for comparison.
Thanks to her amazing good old fashioned customer service, we ended up going up a size to the large which fits perfectly! It arrived in 2 days from WA to Vic & we tested it out straightaway in the pool.The quality is excellent, the clips are strong, it’s easy to adjust & the handle makes a big difference & when we lifted Holly she didn’t even seem to mind or be uncomfortable. We have since used it in the bay & the jacket does not restrict the her at all.
Well worth the money for peace of mind & Holly’s safety. Don’t bother looking at any other dog life jackets - go straight to Surf Dog Australia & experience Sara’s wonderful help & advice.

There are so many on the market but do yourself a favour and buy the surf dog light jacket, not only is it affordable but it truly has buoyancy all the way around so your fur friend can feel 100% all the time in water. Ive purchased many of the surf dog items and they stand up to the test. Amazing products that last and last and deliver high performance and quality
