WIDE SIZES EXPECTED TO BE BACK IN STOCK JULY 2022!

Taken from the side with dog standing is best.

Overview

Float Doggy uses a patented combination of structural design and materials to provide a secure, ergonomic, comfortable fit and balanced flotation. We collaborated with experts in buoyancy, canine anatomy and bio-mechanics to build the Float Doggy.  

WE RESOLVED TWO BIG ISSUES WITH CONVENTIONAL DOG LIFE JACKETS 

Enclosed The Harness Between The Front Legs

  • 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

Inspired by our own kayaking and wake boarding vests, Float Doggy is created in collaboration with experts in buoyancy and canine anatomy and biomechanics. 

Our patented combination of structural design, material choices and careful construction are designed to provide a secure, ergonomic and comfortable fit and balanced flotation for joyful, confident doggy paddling.

SIZING

Our sizing is based primarily on the weight and dimensions of your dog’s body. Because the shaping and dual adjustments help absorb deep chests, broad shoulders and all kinds of variance in shape we suggest looking at the weight indications and the shape references in our SIZING CHART as a starting point.  

We love scruffy faces, fluffy tails and know your dog might have unusually long or short legs, but because we’re not making hats and pants (yet), we really focus on their torso shape when fitting Float Doggy. Compare them to the general body types in the sizing chart if not the specific breed. 

WIDE FITTINGS

If you have a French Bulldog, Boston Terrier, British Bulldog, Staffordshire or other heavy set breed we have wide fits in Small and Medium just for you. These also work for dogs that are broader around the neck and shoulders but not longer in the body such as heavier set Collies or Heelers. 

There is also an ADVANCED SIZING CHART with more information on jacket measurements if you are still unsure. 

If you’re unsure or confused EMAIL US and we’ll do our best to help out: 

  • Please include a photograph of your dog, standing side on to the camera so we can best help you. 
  • If you include a neck measurement take it where their neck starts to join their body where the jacket will sit 
  • If you are including a girth measurement, measure around behind the front legs 
  • No need to measure nose to tail, just from the top of their shoulders to their hips is fine
  • The photograph is the most useful to us so please get out your camera before the measuring tape

If you have a Corgi, please get in touch and we can give you the Royal Treatment as they may require a specific adjustment. 

      Features

      Bar Tack Stitching

      We don’t glue our materials together or sew like Grandma; we stitch ’em right and tight. This super strong stitch is the same one used on climbing harnesses and firefighters’ gear.

      Fit-To-Move

      There are no straight lines on a dog, so there are no straight lines on a Stunt Puppy. To find the best fit on an asymmetrical cylindrical object (your dog’s torso) you need to shape, contour, and hinge every piece. Look at one of our jackets and you’ll see the same shapes and outlines as you see on your dog. The result: the most ergonomic fit on doggy shapes, maximum room for movement, coverage and adjustment where it’s needed and no fur-snagging velcro or zippers.

      Performance Fabrics

      We make our gear with the same fabrics you’ll find in your own favorite stuff. We match performance fabrics to the conditions we’re making the jacket for and always aim for the most comfortable, lightweight, dog-friendly combinations we can find. Because as we’re sure you’ll agree, it’s never just a dog.

      Sizing info
