Float Cost For The Win!

I did tons of research on jackets for my Klee Kai’s who are not great swimmers. The only jacket that doesn’t have exposed buckles (even around the neck) is this one! So all others in an emergency could get stuck and come apart. I feel so secure with them in these jackets. Makes Kayacking with non swimmers fun and relaxing.

Easy to wear life jacket

Our puppy St. Bernard loves to wear her Float Coat all the time when at the marina whether walking on the docks or sleeping on the boat. No problem moving, sitting or sleeping in this brilliant secure fit design to keep her safe while boating and in a proper position when she wades a bit too deep.

Brilliant product

Great, it looks smart, it works well and it gives a great peace of mind when I am out on the water with my dog. I love how easy it is to pull the dog onto my paddle board / kayak. Thanks so much!

Perfect Fit!

I have a Weimaraner with a very deep chest. Your products are the only items I can find that fit him perfectly while still providing him comfort. We look forward to giving his new life jacket a test run at the lake this summer.
