Ruffwear Float Coat for Dogs
Designed for exceptional water adventures with your dog, the Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat is a nifty flotation device that serves equally well both on land and on water. It has all the safety features you can expect from a life jacket that’s specifically designed for man’s best friend.
Closed-cell foam panels are strategically positioned within the abrasion-resistant and water-friendly webbing to allow optimum range of motion for your pet while it is in the water. Your pet will not have any issues kicking its limbs to stay afloat or to swim as the design of the canine life jacket will never interfere with the range of motion of its joints.
The secure buckles are tucked under the straps to give you the illusion that the K-9 Float Coat is secured by Velcro or some fastening mechanism other than buckles. The neck closure can also be adjusted to accommodate varying sizes of dogs. Unfortunately, the neck strap doesn’t really come with a buoyant pad for your pet to rest its head while it’s treading on water.
The K-9 Float Coat comes with a low-profile handle that feels strong and secure on the hands. It’s positioned along the long axis of the dog’s back to allow for easier lifting, although some pet parents may prefer having dual handles for greater distribution of the dog’s weight. Nevertheless, it is still a good-enough mechanism to fish your dog out of the water.
This doggie life jacket is never designed to be washed in a machine as the foam padding might get damaged by powerful agitation. As such, it can only be washed by hand and air-dried. That’s not entirely good news for those who hate washing by hand.
Ruffwear’s K-9 Float Coat is simply every dog’s best friend whenever it goes in the water.
