Dog Lifejackets

Dog Lifejacket made originally by D'Fa in New Zealand and now Stunt Puppy in USA. Designed by experts in buoyancy and canine anatomy. 

When a dog needs a lifejacket he's going to wear it doing some activity or for a long time or where there is a real chance they will need the protection fo a lifejacket. So get one that is comfortable that does not impede swimming and is actually designed for your dog.... foam covered in fabric does not make it a lifejacket.

Unlike Other Dog LifeJackets 

Most dog life jackets have a piece of buoyancy foam wrapped around the top of your dog, perhaps with a handle or a cute but totally ineffective shark fin running along the top. They will have either straps or another piece of fabric underneath that secures the jacket in place. Then they will have some kind of fastening around the front of their chest. This might have some extra foam and a buckle or velcro closure. These jackets act like floating capes and your dog hangs beneath them in the water without any support for the heaviest parts of their body and the risk of them slipping out of the gaping hole at the front when you lift them is significant. 

Our life jacket is different in both its design and construction. Instead of a floating cape, it forms a fully enclosed harness with the same DNA as the harness we use to lift search dogs under helicopters. We don't expect you'll be dropping onto your SUP or your kayak from a helicopter (or maybe you will to your super-yacht), but if you did then you'd be just fine in the Float Doggy.  

  • Harness construction cradles your dog from below as the buoyancy foam lifts them up providing more balanced and comfortable flotation
  • Harness construction secures dogs inside the harness so they cannot wriggle or slip out when being lifted and keeps pressure off soft tissue of throat and belly
  • Floatation between the front legs keeps the front end and head higher in the water without craning the dog's head or putting pressure on the throat
  • Hinged foam segments allow free movement and a better fit
  • Variable density foam complements natural buoyancy
  • Tapered panels give a better fit on a range of doggy shapes
  • Double adjustment straps secures the jacket on a range of doggy shapes
  • Full length lifting handle and leash attachment for doggy overboard situations
  • Durable construction using Cordura® Nylon and waterproof reflective tapes
  • No Velcro or awkward fastenings!
