My canine companion(s): 2 Weimereiners

all eights paws high in the air!!!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Sizing was spot on. The dogs have worn stuff from Ruffwear before. So they were not shy about wearing a PFD. The handle on the top is key for dragging dogs back on board a raft in the middle of a river.

Date of Review: 9/10/2014

We kick up our paws in: Northern New Mexico

My canine companion(s): Two rescued mutts

Very high quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I first purchased your yellow K-9 float coat for my newly adopted pound dog,"Gus." He loved playing in our pond so much but a couple of times my husband had to fish him out. I realized dogs may love to swim but they don't float. Now he can play all day. I then decided to purchase a nice red one for my older female mutt, "Sally." She was sad to sit on the side lines watching the fun. Once in the float coat she immediately gained confidence in water and swam out to the middle. I just wish I had purchased the Coat years ago. The quality is exceptional. Thanks Oregon from New Mexico

Dog's Name: Sparkle

Date of Review: 9/4/2014

We kick up our paws in: Seattle - Tacoma WA

My canine companion(s): Border Collie

Superior

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Sparkle our border collie goes crazy for any opportunity to ride our SeaDoo PWC. I mentioned this to our vet on our last visit and she asked if we had a good life jacket for Sparkle. We chose the yellow color for the highest contrast we could achieve (black border collie vs dark salt water of Puget Sound). I am a former powerboat racer and the Ruffwear Float Coat is on par with quality workmanship and fabric type with my custom made life jackets I have used in boat racing. Sparkle immediately knows she's going for a ride on our machine just by seeing her Float Coat come into view and practically puts the coat on herself. Great product! We wish the Float Coat was available in orange someday?

Another wonderful purchase for our Moxie girl. I can't say enough about Ruffwear. Their products may be little pricier than what you would pay at a pet store, but the high quality more than makes up for it. Every purchase in the last year has exceeded our expectations, from her hiking boots, to her snow coat to the float coat. Ruffwear is my first choice of places to make a purchase. Also, their customer service has been superior!!

Date of Review: 8/21/2014

We kick up our paws in: United States

My canine companion(s): Hound and Beagle

Well-made

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We've been trying to get our dog more comfortable with swimming. Prior to buying this, she just sat on the top step of our pool and was too scared to jump in. It was fine by us, but we kind of wished she was more comfortable. After putting the vest on her, she jumped into the water on the top step, as usual. But then, like magic, she went down to the next step followed by a jump into the water and a swim across the pool. We were completely shocked! We thought maybe it was a fluke, so we tried again the following week and sure enough she jumped right in and swam across the pool after we put the vest on her. The vest makes her feel very secure in the water. We couldn't be more pleased.

Dog's Name: Sully

Date of Review: 8/21/2014

We kick up our paws in: Austin, TX

My canine companion(s): Labrador Retriever

Excellent, peace of mind

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We purchased this life jacket for our 9.5 yr old Lab that has been swimming his entire life and enjoys it more than anything, even over food! Last year he nearly drowned if we would not have jumped into the lake to pull him out because he had some type of inbalance. We later discovered that it was most likely vestibular disease. Every so often he has an episode were he loses his equilibrium and has a hard time getting his bearings. We had to stop taking him to swim in fear that we would look away for a second and he would drown. I started looking into life jackets and discovered the k-9 float coat and decided to purchase it after reviewing many products. Sully wears it every time he goes swimming, which is about 3x/wk, and has been able to do so comfortably and without any interference. The handle on top is extremely durable for when we need to guide him or pull him up, he is 85lbs. And the most important thing for us, it has saved his life and we witnessed it. He had another inbalance episolde and would have sunk under the water, but the jacket completely kept him above water even as he was unable to hold himself up. We were in the water with him and pulled the handle to guide him into shallow water to gather his bearings and all was well. He was ready to continue swimming! This jacket was well worth the cost because it gave us something priceless, peace of mind for our sweet fur baby to do what he enjoys most. Thank you!

Dog's Name: Motley & Amber

Date of Review: 8/14/2014

We kick up our paws in: Cayman Islands

My canine companion(s): pit mix and lurcher looking mix

outstanding quality, great fit, love it!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Amazing! i got one for my pit mix a while ago and just got another one for my lurcher mix. The jacket is well made so even with their crazy playing i haven't noticed any damage and they still have the flexibility to run about, wrestle, and jump into the sea. Motley likes to swim so its great for him when he decides to chase flying fish. Amber likes to fish in the rock pools so for her i can let her explore knowing she is ok if she falls in. Unlike other jackets she tried on (with random dangling straps and odd padding) this one is well made and fits closer to her body. i especially like that the padding goes under the tummy and the straps can be wrapped up with the velcro. The handle is great for getting hold of them and unlike the cheap jackets these handles and straps are stitched into the jacket and not just on the surface. Well worth the extra $ for my piece of mind and now we can attempt some paddle boarding without the worry!

My canine companion(s): Bullmastiff

Great floatcoat

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My bullmastiff has always loved the water, but has never actually tried to "swim." I got him this float coat, recommended by his breeder, to try to encourgage hiim to leave the shallows. He hated his previous PFD, but this one... he acts like he doesn't even notice it is on him! I love the handle on the back side as it allows me to help him float and swim even while he can technically still touch the bottom. While he hasn't started swimming on his own yet, it is a work in progress greatly assisted by his Ruffwear floatcoat!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We have tried just about every dog life jacket there is on the market, and this is only one that really holds up for our active, water loving terrier. It provides enough buoyancy to keep him safe while being sleek enough to not get in his way. More expensive than other life jackets, but worth the money.

Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My dog is a strong swimmer, but after awhile he has a hard time lifting his head out of the water. Now with this life jacket he has no problems swimming with me. I originally purchased this for canoe trips, but now we use it everytime we go floating, swimming or boating because he's more comfortable in the water with it on. Also being able to grab him by the handle and scoop him out of the water is a huge plus. My bf's pitbull has one too and she instantly sinks without it on!

Tank is a 75lb English Bulldog, this breed cannot swim so I spent a lot of time researching the life jackets. This is by far the best product I found. Tank and I kayaked in Newport Bay, he felt free to jump off the boat, the jacket worked perfect. Easy to get in and out of, the handle on top really helps.

I love the K-9 Float Coat and so does my dog!!! THe 1st time we put it on in the house, she was a bit wierded out, But once we hit the lake and she realized how far she could swim and how much fun putting on the coat meant she was sold! She Gets So Excited when I show her the Float Coat! IT works so well too, She loves following me around on my SUP Board and wants to fetch for hours if you let her. I like how it keeps her cool as well when we are out of the water and chilling on a Hot Beach. This is a Great product!!!!

I have a 22 lbs male pug, his girth is 22 inches and his neck is 18. It's always hard to find the right size for a little dog that has a big chest, I. So glad we found Ruffwear. We got a size S for our dog, it's perfect for his size, not too long, not tight which is what you want if you have a brachicephalic dog. It has enough room to adjust the straps in case he gains a little weight. Quality and design are amazing! Our little one wears it with no issues, can run and play! It keeps his head above the water and supports his heavy chest. If your dog is not a great swimmer, or gets tired this is the item to get.

My doggies are not fans of the water....but tend to fall in and panic. They try to escape the paddle boats, kayak, and paddle boards as soon as they're close to the houseboat or solid ground. They never make it, and then, "splash." With these vests, WE don't have to panic to get them back to a hard surface. They have made playing in the water stress free... well, at least for us!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I solo canoe camp with my dog all summer, all over New England. When he sees his Ruffwear Float Coat come out, his whole body wiggles with excitement. The fit and quality are outstanding. The room around his shoulders means there's nothing in his way. The high-viz yellow is great. He's 110 pounds (tall and long for a lab) and has chronic lyme disease so his joints always hurt. Swimming is the most comfortable exercise for him - and the float coat makes that possible. Other products we've tried are just a joke. Love love love the Float Coat!

excellent redesign

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Lucy was terrified of water when I rescued her at 5 years,. But within a year I had her swimming and canoeing in an older Ruffwear PFD. Now She's fifteen and just crazy about water. But the older PFD design caused problems for her as she aged. It became more difficult for her to get up from the ground (she has one weak leg). Now I see that this problem has been corrected. This latest design has a cutaway in the lower abdomen so older, weaker dogs can get their feet under them more easily. I love Ruffwear and the fact that they keep improving on their already excellent designs.

Fits well and is easy to adjust. Could definitely do for some more durability. The first weekend we had it, the strap that holds the clips on the bottom tore and it's only a matter of time before the clip falls off all-together. Love the handle on the back though.

I couldnt have found a better life jacket! They fit both of them perfect! Both dogs didnt seem to mind them at all. They feel really great! They are worth the value! The buckles are smooth and the handle on the back so you can grab them when necessary is just the right size. We are looking forward to many adventures since they both love the lake! Thanks for giving us such a great product!

Ammo & I LOVE the float coat!! We go down to Dale Hollow Lake in TN and have been wanting to take Ammo out on the pontoon boat, but was worried how we would get him back in once he jumped in the water. I was able to pick him (93lbs) up out of the water and get him back on the boat safely with the float coat!! I also felt comfortable letting him go tubing behind the boat! He absolutely loved it! He wouldn't have been able to get back on the boat without the float coat & I wouldn't have let him tube! Recommend it to any one & so does Ammo!!

Border Collies aren't necessarily as comfortable with water as they are herding but with that being said our girl Elly went from running away when she saw you getting the garden hose to confidently wearing her Ruffwear vest in our lake. In one day she went from playing near the shore to swimming out to retrieve her Frisbee 40 or 50 feet from our lake. She learned to dogpaddle wearing her vest and I know her helped her confidence in the water. It is great to have the handle and the flotation and material is top knotch ! We are thrilled and our next adventure is to get her in the canoe , wish us luck !!

We got these so we could take the girls out on the boat and have a way to easily get them back in after they swim. The handles on these jackets are fantastic for picking them up from the water and it doesn't seem to hurt them at all either. It's also really nice for when they swim far away and start to get tired. Now we know they aren't going to sink!

We both thank you.

My 8yr old yellow lab had to have her front leg removed due to cancer. She is a very active dog. She swims regularly, we hike, and mountain bike as well. When the leg was removed, i was devastated. I wanted to rehab her as well as I could. 2 weeks after the leg was removed and her staples were taken out, she was swimming again thanks to this life jacket. Most dog life jackets have the floatation on the top of their back. This however had enough floatation under her chest and ribs. Swimming was the best activity that she can do to strengthen her body and to help her gate. I can't thank you enough for this life jacket. The doctors at Cornell animal hospital were amazed at how fast she recovered and how strong she became. Nestlé and I got our lives back and she was hiking again in 1 month and in 3 months we were snow shoeing. I highly recommend this product.

I bought Kylers (Boxer) Float Coat because he is not a strong swimmer and we are on a boat quite often. He is afraid of deep water and will only play where he can touch. It took two trips to the lake for him to get used to it... But now he is a water dog! My Shepherd (Sam) is an excellent swimmer and loves to jump off the boat. But it was difficult to pull him back onto the pontoon... With the handle on the top of their life jackets, it is much easier to get them back on the boat. This float coat is awesome and very much worth the money! The one Sam wears is 4 years old and still holding up well!

Adler is about 8 months old and has just started spending time in the water, his float coat makes him more confident while playing in the river/lake. The coats do not restrict their movements at all which is great! The entire coats are made of great quality material - which will aid in them lasting a long time. We would recommend this to anyone and everyone who has a dog that spends time in or around the water.

Brutus is not a good swimmer, he sinks like a rock. I bought the K-9 Float Coat so he could get some fun exercise in the bay. It fits him perfectly and keeps his head above water.

This life jacket is perfect for our dog. She loves to swim and this gives her a nice snug fit so we know it will stay on her in the water. The adjustable straps make it easy to fit it to her body and I especially like that the fabric goes around her belly, so the straps don't rub on her.

We coudn't be happier with our "Float Coat". Elby is an extremely strong swimmer, but there are times that I don't want to worry about her and whether she'll tire out, etc, and that's when we wear her life jacket! We are always in lakes and rivers or ponds but recently I took her to the beach. I knew she'd be a bit adventurous and I was right. I was so happy to have the "Float Coat" because she could swim for hours and I knew she wouldn't sink! :) She loved it and with the water as rough as it was, it was nice that she could consistently stay ABOVE the waves. We wouldn't travel without it! THANKS!

My dog loves his life jacket. It looks great on him and is very functional. The jacket is made very well and the straps are hidden and can't snag or get entangled. Roy is a strong swimmer and doesn't need the jacket for short swims, but with the jacket he can swim in our pool for long periods of time, stay horizontal with ease, and never go vertical. I now take him on rivers and bays and never worry when he is in the water.

It has attracted much attention from others who have observed him play with ease.

Excelent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

RUFFWARE® K-9 Float Coat: My dog Biscuit and I are a Pet Partner's® Therapy team. He works hard at comforting and filling the needs of others, so when I get a chance, I like to do special things for him. I recently got a kayak. Living in Florida there are plenty of places to go. Although Biscuit (Yellow Lab) is an excellent swimmer, I wanted to make sure my buddy didn't get hurt. We'd be going through some deep and tricky currents and I wanted to make sure he'd be safe in any situation. I looked at a lot of dog Personal Flotation Devices and found a lot of them that were not up to my standards of making sure Biscuit was safe even in the worst of emergencies. Yet, I wanted it to be comfortable for him and not impair his movement. After a LOT of research I found K-9 Float Coat (™) The more I read and looked at it the better more I liked it. Comparing features and quality of the Float Coat to other PFD's, in my research showed the others to be lacking in features, safety and durability. I ordered a red one for him thinking that it would contrast well with his yellow color. The folks at Ruff Ware were very helpful and prompt at answer any of my questions. When it arrived I was extremely pleased at the quality and attention to detail. It is EXTREMELY sturdy but was adjustable in all the important areas so it fit Biscuit well. He his a big dog and has a deep chest but a very thin waist. The adjustable straps were sturdy and I was able to alter length of the adjustable straps and connectors to fit him perfectly. The added reflective markings made me feel safer in case we were out after dark or camping and I needed to locate him in the dark. I put it on him and let him wear it around the house for a few hours. He got used to in right off the bat and went about his regular activities paying no attention to his coat. I understand that it can be worn in the cold weather by the dog as a coat. The next day we went out for a test swim and it worked perfectly. I like the handle on the top of the vest that allows me to hang on to him and let him pull me around. This could be a lifesaver for me if I were to get injured somehow and not be able to swim well. It is also handy for pulling dogs back into the boat if they have trouble getting back in. The coat fits around the dog's neck comfortably and when put on it will not slip off. If the dog gets tired and stops swimming the coat will still allow them to float in the normal position. They will be horizontal at the surface. This was a big feature for me as some floatation devices I looked at did not work this way. If you have an older dog that tuckers out some of the time, this feature would be helpful. I've had this for about 3 months and used it very often. Since then, we've really put it through it's paces and it still looks like new. If you are seriously considering getting a Personal Flotation Device for your dog, I would highly recommend this one. You might find a lesser brand around, but to me, having something that will keep my dog safe is priceless. I can't and won't risk a poorly made PFD for my dog. He is just too important to me. If you want a very well made device for your dog, I highly recommend Ruffware K-9 Coat. Positives: Well made Very Easy To Adjust Works just like it should Should Last for a very long time even under ruff conditions. Negatives: None Found

superb

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My 3 pits would never go near the pool. They are 80 to 90 lbs, 34 inch girth. I bought one of these (large) to get them used to the water. When it arrived, I let the straps and neck out some to get it on them. I had to bring the straps all the way back in to fit them. It's almost to large but fits well now. It was a challenge to get them in the water, the back strap is sturdy enough for me to lift them. After the first few times, they love it. Now when I bring the coat out, they run to the edge and wait for me to take them in. It gave them more confidence in the water. Very well constructed and all the little details were well thought out. I guess i'll have to buy a couple more to slow down the competition for their turn. I'd like to see a boating version. This version would have a float flap sewn to the front chest piece. So if they were injured or tired, the flap would support the chin and keep their nose out of the water. Just a thought. This is the best one out there.

It you have a dog(s) and spend much time around water, you have got to purchase these for you best friends. As you know, Labs are already great swimmers, well at least most of them, so do not spend any more time worrying that they are too tired from swimming all day to get back in. These vests will float your dog in the perfect position and like a previous review indicated, you know your dog is happy swimming when they are wagging their tail while motoring along. You will be lucky to find it in stock at the store of any major retailer who indicates it on there web site so be sure to order it before you need it. I drove all the way to Tennessee to pick mine up and it was worth every minute. I can now spend more time at the lake because I do not have to keep an eye on the dogs and can spend more time will a cold one. This is a high quality vest! Too bad it does not come in camo, it would be a ducks hunter dream.

This float does not restrict his movement at all and I don't worry anymore when he goes in the water. It appears to be very well made and I believe it will hold up well.

The clip is handy to keep him leashed up as we go to and from the water, so I don't have to connect and disconnect the leash from his collar. Oh, and it dries quickly. I love it!

I have a husky who loves to swim and I like having this vest as an option for if we are boating or on docks where it is not possible for her to get out of the water on her own. This keeps her from getting too tired or panicked and I can easily pick her up.

My canine companion(s): Boston Terrier

Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My Boston Terrier is 5 years old, about 19lb male. He was scared of water all his life. My beagle loves swimming but it was a real challenge to make Jude swim. Last year while being at the cottage my Boston end up playing fetch in water. He had a blast but also give everyone a heart attack. He is a horrible swimmer, his splashing so much pretty much to the point of drowning himself. This year I decided to invest in lifejacket for him. That way we can enjoy cottage without a fear of our beloved dog drowning. After a very long research, and reading tons of reviews, I purchased size-S jacket for Jude. To be honest with you, I thought that the jacket was a bit pricy. But the way it's constructed made me realize this might be best choice, and it may last me years. Now i know that I made the right choice. The product is fantastic! VERY well made, the design is flawless, very durable, with great details in stitching and reflecting material! As to sizing (since I know a lot of you wander which size fits which breed best). My boston is very skinny guy, with pretty wide-build up chest. He is about 19lb, at age of 5. I was very hesitant between S or XS. And decided to get S. It fits him well, I am pretty sure that if I got XS it would have worked well too. The problem with Boston Terriers is that generally they are very wide in chest/head but have very skinny back. So even though the jacket may seem big, it actually sits very well at the chest, and the collar is comfortable around the head (it can be adjusted). If your Boston is tinny or female, you may want to consider XS. Thank you for great product! Jude now loves swimming, fetching and jumping off the dock! Cheers <3

My canine companion(s): Olde English Bulldogge

Excellent quality product

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We bought this life jacket for our Olde English Bulldogge Vonmeatstein, being an OEB they either don't swim very well or tire very easily because of their size. He fell into the later group, he could swim but holding his head above the water and swimming with his short legs tired him quickly so swim time didn't last very long. I did a lot of searching to find the right life jacket for him and came across the RuffWear Float Coat. What sold me was the quality of the product, most that I had seen had just straps across the chest and under the belly. Which concerned me because if ever there was a case I needed to use the handle this would dig these straps into my dog. With the float coat it has padding under all the straps, and in my case the area in the front across the chest helps my dog keep his head above water. We just recently used this coat for 7 days in Florida and it was worn everyday when he went in the pool. It doesn't hinder my dog swimming. I posted a video to youtube of him swimming in the float coat. http://youtu.be/JQ0RcgoD4Fs

About 4 yrs ago I purchased a Ruff Wear life jacket and loved it for our Beagle (Charlie), no complaints and kept him safe while near water (rivers, lakes, docks, etc). Then when we needed another one for our other dog we came back to RuffWear due to the high quality of the first one. The new one is well made however just doesn't seem to fit as well, and has to be pulled over the dogs head, instead of allowing it to be buckled from above, however we have floated a few rivers with it and Jake feels comfortable wearing it (after we worked with him on pushing his head through the head hole). Overall I'm happy with the purchase and is the best option on the market still, I did extensive research.

We live in the middle of about 6 lakes and the wife and I are always camping in the summer at least once a month on the bank of Norris lake. Jolie is 1 1/2 yrs and we took her for the first time this summer. Basset hounds are deff not known for there swimming skills but she actually does pretty good without the life jacket as far as just making her way back to the bank, but gets tired easy with those short legs. So i decided to get her a jacket so she would have a little help and maybe enjoy the lake alot more. Once she figured out what it did for her she was jumping in on her own in no time, and sometimes she would forget it wasnt on and get alittle excited and jump in without it, LOL!! All in all it has helped alot. Im glad i bought it, i think its overpriced but these people know people will spend the money on there pets before they will on themselves, and im guilty of it my self. would give it 5 stars if it was more reasonably priced, not that much diff between these and the ones at pet supply

Functionality and comfort was a primary concern: if he doesn't want to wear it, it will be a challenge. Absolutely no problem here. Thank you.

I own a 130lb Newfoundland...Indeed, the instinctive water rescue breed. My beautiful girl gets nervous too far from shore. The jacket has allowed us to swim together, gather confidence, build up muscle and exercise comfortably. We love swimming at the lake, all worries are banished. The fit is excellent XL allowing her to freely swim and remain nicely supported. No problem with hair caught in the clips or working into the front harness area or material of the vest. Quick in and out. Thank-you for making our human to dog bond even stronger...

I bought this for my extremely athletic 9 month old female Shiloh. She adores water, but thought she could sprint through it and would end up panicking. This heavy duty vest allowed her to learn how to swim without fear, and now she's swimming just as well as my mother's golden retriever. I also do a lot of water sports, such as SUPing, so it's nice to know that if she falls off, she'll float and not get scared.

We kick up our paws in: Santa Barbara

My canine companion(s): 15 yo Labrador, 64 lbs

not boyant enough for very old weak dog

Would you recommend this product?.: No

Emma is very old, coming up on 15 years. She also has partical ACL tears which make her knees sore. As a geriatric lady she is not a strong swimmer anymore but still wants to get in the pool. I bought the float coat so she could safetly get in and paddle around. But I have to say her head is at just about the same level as without the vest. She is still getting water in her ears and her nose is just above waterline. I realize this product was likely designed for fit/active dogs and those are the main users. But it seems Emma, aka, any really exhausted dog, is the perfect test for this vest. If your dog was not rescued quickly would this vest actually provide enough boyancy to keep their heads up till help came? I think maybe not? It needs more floatation on the bottom of chest! All that said, it fits great, is very very well made and, as with all Ruffwear products, seems to be the best option out there. I just think it could be better. I will try it a few more times and decide if we need to return it or not.

Great!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We have one dog who loves to swim with or without the coat, and my 9 month old is just learning, and a little nervous as to where the steps to the pool are, so the coats have been great! Brady has been able to swim longer (read: Tired, exercised, well behaved pup), and we (And Fitz) have the confidence that he will not drown, while learning how to find the steps in the pool. With the pavement getting hotter, walks are less frequent, to protect their paws, so the coats have allowed us to have another way to exercise them! The coats themselves are durable, the handles allow us to pull them out of the pool, without hurting them or the coat, and it is easy to adjust. They wear the same size, but are built differently, so the coat adjusts well to their unique build. Definitely worth the money!

I’ve had the flotation vest for over ten years—which came with a “free” stuffed star toy that Ruffwear made at the time from leftovers. I got mine because Haven got startled by hunters once and ran into the water and started swimming across the Channel toward Dover. Ruffwear products are ABSOLUTELY GREAT. The vest is extremely durable and has a top handle that was fantastic for hauling huge Tommy around when I was trying to keep weight off his front leg when he developed bone cancer. Although these vest are by no means designed for stress on the bottom clips caused by being pulled upward by the handle out of water, the vest stood up to months of this and it's still as good as new. The star toy’s been through many dogs and has been torn open in spots and still never collapsed.

Fritz has arthritis in his back legs and it was recommended that he get involved in hydrotherapy and laser treatment. Because we also have a pool, they recommended that we purchase a vest so that he can float and "paddle." I am so impressed with the vest and how much he loves getting his vest on and getting in the pool with it. One month ago, he could barely walk but now, after swimming in the pool every day and laser treatments, he is walking so much that we have trouble keeping track of him - AND he is 16 years young! I love that this vest has given him a longer opportunity in our pool which we hope to keep open at least until November (fingers crossed). Thank you!

Highly functional, sturdy, dependable.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Initially, there was some concern that our dogs could wiggle out of their vest, but both of them took to the vest without hesitation and with proper adjustments, both vests fit perfectly. We were very impressed and pleased with the quality of the vests. Biscuit’s Float Coat was purchased for two purposes; safety and to help in her physical therapy. Biscuit has a weak hind leg due to a damaged ACL. Her veterinarian recommended swimming to strengthen the leg. The Float Coat helped with her buoyancy and she spent more than her usual time in the water! The Float Coat turned out to be a life saver on this vacation, too. After swimming around our boat a few times, we realized how difficult it would be to get Biscuit (at 70 lbs) back into the boat. Well, the sturdy handle on the vest proved its worth! My husband grabbed the handle and we managed to get her back on the boat without any mishap. Yeah!

Elly is not a swimmer, she will occasionally do a very short paddle in calm water with the proper motivation. But, I recently purchased a canoe and needed a way to keep her safe should we tip. This is was the best product I could find. The handle is sturdy enough to support her whole weight. Elly can run, jump, sit, etc. with the coat on, no problem. It is easy to adjust and has velcro to keep the loose ends secure. Elly was wary of the Float Coat at first, but after 5 minutes of treats and a little training she enjoys wearing it. She can easily move about the canoe, test the water conditions and scour the water for sticks and feathers without me having to worry about her falling out. Note: Because Elly was at the exact measurement border between small and medium, I contacted Ruffwear for advice. The customer service rep was quick to respond and make a recommendation on size which worked out perfectly!

She's a Gordon Setter with the heart of a retriever. She loves to be wet and have sticks thrown for her. She also has bad hips, and a day at the beach usually leaves her limping the next day. But the life jacket allowed her to be comfortable and she only had to focus on paddling. It supported her head and body perfectly and she didn't want to get out of the water. It does just what I wanted from it, and it will last a very long time. Winnie gets excited as soon as it comes out of the closet now!

At first I was skeptical about a life jacket for a dog that could already swim with no problem but this Float Coat is amazing! My dog was instantly more confident and less afraid to jump in. It really kept his head out of the water. The handle is great to lift him back onto the shore and he is highly visible in the semi murky water. Excellent product. I was shocked at how good it was, how easy it is to put on, and how light it is. It didn't weigh him down at all. There will be many more trips to the lake with our Float Coat and once the puppy is big enough he'll have his own too!

Great!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My girl is 200lbs (not overweight) and her chest size is just the upper limit listed by Ruff wear for the XL vest. This has helped us so much in the pool. We could use just a bit more lift, as she still gets water in her ears when she stops paddling strongly, but we recognize that her weight is a bit more than the norm:)

Perfect!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We enjoy canoeing our local stream, the Mad River. Max is now 6 years old and doesn't have the stamina or strength he once did. We looked at several different life vests when we took a chance on RuffWear. The K-9 float coat sounded as though it was built well and had nothing but good reviews. We were concerned because we weren't able to find one locally to view. However, when we received it... it fit perfectly and was everything that we were looking for; durable, functional, well fitting and aesthetic. It took a few times for Max to get comfortable putting it on but now, he looks forward to it! I can't recommend this enough!!!

Well designed, good quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Brita is a powerful swimmer and after watching her launch at full tilt off the dock, I fully expect her to do the same off the boat in the middle of the lake. We were most interested in the stout handle on the vest to bring her back onboard. Haven't used it yet but if we need it, I know we'll be able to easily retrieve the Retriever!

I purchased the K-9 Float Coat for my chocolate lab, Bella. The medium size fit her just perfect with room for her to grow as the straps can extend a few more inches. It seems very durable and we have used the strap on top several times to lift her out of the water.

As those who have said before us, this is the absolute best dog life jacket on the market. Ruff Wear truly outshines the competition with the K9 Float Coat through attention to detail and thoughtful design. The ergonomic nature and proper placement of floatation in this Float Coat has our once water-shy dog swimming like a fish! Give your design crew a well-deserved pat on the back...they've earned it!

Stitching on this product is heavy duty. I have an 18 month old female GSDthat weighs 75 pound that does Search and Rescue. She is required to wear a PFD everytime we are on a boat or working near the water. This works great. I can even lift her if needed due to the heavy construction of the coat.

GREAT!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The float coat is very heavy duty and my pup seems very comfortable in it. I bought it because I hope to take him to a lake sometimes and also to use it while teaching him to swim. He is afraid of the pool now and goes in a lake or river, but is scared to swim. I bought the Yellow one so I could easily seem him in dark body of water and also I thought it would be cooler since a light color. Well worth the money.

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My GSD has a degenerating spinal cord and cannot stand or walk anylonger. At the therapy swimming pool he goes to they used RuffWear life jackets and I was amazed that he can move his hind legs like normal while swimming and even stand in the water on his legs. I bought a life jacket for the summertime since we go to the lake quite often. These jackets are the best out there as they have floatation over and under under the dog, and around the neck to keep their faces out of the water. This life jacket is a lifesaver for my dog as he gets the exercise for his hind muscles. Also putting it on and off is a breeze and the handle and clip at the top are great. It drys quickly too. A well made product and I can't say enough good things about it.

Our Golden has one too with the old design, but there is a big difference in their swimming when they don't have them on. Would never buy another brand, even though we think they are a little expensive. Great product!

Best Life Jacket on the Market!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We love the K-9 Float Coat by Ruff Wear! the coat has great adjust-ability, which is wonderful for my growing puppy! The strap system is easy to adjust and stays out of the way, not interfering with movement in any way! I love the handle! Its wide and durable! The handle is great for lifting your pup on and off of boats, docks, etc. I love the leash and beacon attachment points and use them frequently! I do wish that the leash attachment point was in front of the handle or on top of it...the location is confusing to me. The reflective trim is great in combination with the Beacon. I do wish the jacket came in a color other than red or yellow. The yellow is easy to see, I wish there was another bright color in case of "dog overboard", perhaps a lime green or orange? The material seems very high quality and insanely durable! I've been very happy with it so far. The only improvement I can think of would be some sort of neoprene type material on the front and under the belly to prevent chaffing. The fit is great and by far the best I've found!

My canine companion(s): Rottweiler

Blew my mind!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have a 1 year old Rottweiler named Tate. He loves nothing more than playing in the water, unfortunately he lacked the swimming prowess his labrador pals had when we take them swimming in the ponds at my farm. At 100 pounds I was very worried that he would fearlessly swim out to the middle and sink like a rock. I purchased the K-9 Float Coat after reading all of the good reviews and comparing it to others. When it came in I thought it looked awesome but I still had my doubts solely due to Tates large size and weight. A quick trip to the pond erased all those doubts! Tate is now a smimming machine! He outlasted all his so called 'water dog' friends and even us humans, he swam nonstop for hours without a problem (he did of course sleep the entire next day). I even have noticed that his swimming without the float coat on has improved which is an added bonus. GREAT PRODUCT

We purchased the Small when our dog was a pup and he progressed into the Medium and he is now a 44lb dog. Initially we used this as a buoyancy aid for physiotherapy. It worked a treat. It has been so effective in keeping him high in the water and allowing range of motion of his limbs without restriction. 10/10. He is the coolest doggie on the beach and as Veterinarians we recommend the coat to all of our clients if they are needing buoyancy for physio or simply added support when at the beach.

Roxy is a 4 year old lab who loves to go fishing for dolphin(mahi mahi). We go out in the ocean and sometimes it can get very ruff. So, we needed a life jacket for her. Also, When she jumps out of the boat while we go swimming it's hard to get a 75 pound dog back in the boat without using her collar. With this jacket we are able to get her inside the boat without hurting her or struggling. she loves her jacket it's comfortable where she sits and lays down with no problem. I highly suggest it

I bought the Medium for my 45lb mutt in case he gets knocked off the boat when we go sailing. He is a strong swimmer and won't swim with this on (he is fussy about wearing things,) so I don't use it for canoeing or swimming near shore. But I wanted him to be safe when sailing in the sound. He walks well in the coat and it seems comfortable. It fits well and seems well-designed and rugged.
