The K-9 Float Coat by Ruffwear is a premium life jacket designed for dogs that love to SUP, surf, kayak, raft or boat. It is the ultimate in canine floation and water safety with great details such as a strong, centrally placed handle on the back that allows you to help your pup out of the water and reflective trim that gives enhanced visibility.
The K-9 Float Coat is available in 6 sizes - to choose the best size, measure around your dog's girth/chest.
If your dog is in-between sizes or a unique shape, you can also consider the neck size (around the neck) and the coat length (from the base of the neck towards the tail). Note: the dog coat should only cover the ribcage and not go the full length of the body - otherwise it can interfere with the rear legs in swimming.

Here are what a couple of our customers say about the K-9 Float Coat:
'We're so proud of Marley and her new jacket. She is now my paddle board buddy (and everyone else's…she will hijack a board on approach!). It's wonderful to see her happy again after we lost our old girl of 14 years (her best friend). I especially love the hand on the back of the K-9 Float Coat". Mel
"Best day ever trailing out my new jacket. I have never swum so confidently - mum and dad were very impressed! Swam out to Dad about 30-40m offshore to get my ball and then back again - all by myself!" (Sprocket says he's feeling awesome!)
Secure fasteners. Hand wash with mild detergent. Air dry.
Hi, we were advised by our dog trainer to try a front clip harness as our rescue dog Lucy, an English Pointer. Walking her is a lot easier as she used to pull & she is very strong. She cannot do her backflips with it on & tends to walk closer to me rather than pulling me up the street 😀. I would recommend it at this early stage. It would be a great addition if you had a range that started "nervous" etc printed on them. colour was as pictured & its easy to fit
We got this for our Golden Retriever puppy. We’ve had retrievers before and we wanted to train her not to pull on the lead. The front harness is exactly what we were looking for and she’s walking so much better now and is so much easier to manage. The harness is comfortable and sturdy and we got the matching lead. A good purchase!
