K-9 Float Coat - Top Selling Ruffwear Dog Lifejacket


Sockeye Red
Wave Orange

Unfortunately we have limited stock and Ruffwear, the supplier, are now sold out until their new design is released in early 2021. 

We have only XS and XL left

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.  

Check out the video further down this page on fitting the K9 Float Coat.

How to Measure Your Dog's Girth

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!)

Washing Instructions

NEW! 2020 Front Range Harness - Popular Everyday Dog Harness

the harness is really good for our golden retriever and we walk much better with it

Not Very Happy

My two dogs refuse to move going for a walk, when they have the new harness on. They prefer the old ones instead. Can you advise whatI need to do for them to walk with the new ones on. They are English Staffys male and female 3 and 4 years olds. HELP! Ashok Perera

Front range harness

Fantastic harness that fits my bloodhound very well and bshe no longer does the death roll that head collars invoked. So a solution we are both happy with....she gets to strut and I don't have a dislocated shoulder.

I had bought one of your other harnesses for my greyhound. The adjustments in the harness and capacity to fit nice and snug is brilliant, which is why I bought this one. Winning!!

Absolutely awesome customer service

Great help with product information and excellent communication

Happy doggie

As I have a lean dog getting the measurements correct was important I ordered a medium as even though my dog is big, he is very lean. The product arrived very quick (given I had ordered it over Christmas) and fitting was very simple. The best part is my dog is able to run and enjoy himself and I am confident that he can’t squirm out of his harness. We both get what we want = everyone is happy.

This harness also works great with a 9m track and train lead, which means we can do some training also with the confidence that he can’t wriggle free.
