We made our dog life jackets from durable, buoyant material and thick foam side panels. Not only will your dog be safe if he loves playing in the water (or falls off your SUP), he’ll be pretty comfortable on your SUP and on land.
A reinforced grab handle allows you to pull your dog up and out of the water if necessary, and a d-ring provides a quick attachment point for your leash. Reflective piping helps keep visibility high in low light conditions.
Our life jacket has a full velcro pad underneath for maximum adjustability and comfort for your dog. The neck strap is also highly adjustable and secured with a clip-in strap and velcro. The PFD straps (hidden underneath the side panels) run the full length of the life vest, so you know this PFD won’t be coming off your dog, unintentionally! We’ve also added a rear pocket for your dog’s ID tag.
Sizing is based on girth. Dogs of all breeds come in different sizes. If your dog is short, long, stout, or tall we have a life jacket to fit them. Please size up if your dog’s girth size is on higher range of the closest size.

Chest: measure behind your dog’s front legs and across the broadest part of the chest. Hold the tape firm and level
Neck: measure at the base of your dog’s neck. Don’t measure too high on your dog’s neck
Important: For a more comfortable fit, please size up if your dog’s measurement is close to the maximum of a specific size.
I have a Jack Russell Terrier that paddleboards with me 3 times a week. I bought him size medium, and it fits him well, much better than any other life jacket I have tried. He seems so much more comfortable in this jacket, and he doesn't get hot in it as well. Riley gets excited when I get it out to put it on him, because he knows he's going paddling!
Excellent quality dog life jacket. I have tried several brands of life jackets and this one is great. Very sturdy material without being cumbersome or restricting movement. My dogs love to swim and jump of my board frequently so the handle is a huge plus when I need to grab them and pull them back up on my board. The full Velcro belly bad and clips keep the dogs securely in their jackets and support their weight when being lifted back on the board. The ring attachment is nice for when I need to leash them up and the reflective piping is a great addition too. Highly recommend if you are planning and taking pups paddle boarding.
You haven't met a dog with attitude until you've met Mr. Wolf - if he doesn't like something, his side eye will tell you everything you need to know. Naturally, I was a bit worried about how he would deal with a dog PFD, but he didn't mind it at all! He could lay down, get up, move around the board, and snuffle on land with full range of motion. It's easy to put on, stays secure, and the grab handle is perfect for loading/unloading Wolf onto the SUP. 5/5 stars, 100% recommend for aquatic canines!
