Some of your favourite water activities can be dog-friendly with the right training and gear. Whether you love swimming, rafting, or paddle boarding with your pooch, ensure your dog’s safety in the water with the Ruffwear Float Coat Life Jacket for dogs. The lightweight lifejacket for dogs is made from 800 denier ballistic polyester combined with Gaia and CLPE foam for added durability and stability in the water. The low-positioned handle lets you assist your dog in and out of the water in a pinch. The strategically placed foam panels of this dog life jacket ensure optimal buoyancy and a comfortable and natural position in the water.

Reflective accents on the dog life jacket let you easily see the dog in the water. Attach the waterproof Ruffwear Beacon for even greater visibility in low light. The canine life vest allows you to attach a dog leash, like the Ruffwear Front Range Leash, to a secure and hidden ITW Nexus Airloc buckle so you can keep them close to you in and on the water. The float coat is available in three assorted colours and has a telescoping neck that will easily fit your dog’s unique shape.

How to Measure Your Dog



  1. Neck: Measure the circumference of the base, leaving enough space to fit two fingers comfortably.
  2. Lower Neck: Measure the circumference of the area above the shoulder blades towards the top of the chest, leaving enough space to fit two fingers comfortably.
  3. Chest Girth: Measure the circumference of the widest part of the chest behind the front legs.
  4. Length: Measure the length of your dog's back from the top of their shoulders to the base of their tail.
  5. Height: Measure the distance from the floor to the top of your dog's shoulder blades. Your dog needs to be standing on all four legs.
  6. Paw Width: Measure the widest part of the paw. You'll get a better measurement if your pup is standing.
  7. Paw Length: Measure the distance between the "heel" and the longest toe nail. You'll get a better measurement if your pup is standing.
  8. Muzzle Length: Measure the nose length from the tip to the crook where you want the muzzle to sit comfortably below the eyes.
  9. Muzzle Width: Measure the muzzle's circumference at the widest part, leaving space for two fingers to ensure a comfortable fit.
  10. Weight: Step on a scale while holding the dog, then subtract your weight from the total. A dog scale is conveniently located at all our locations.
