Sizing Your Dog's Life Jacket
Posted by on
PAWS Aboard Pet Life Jackets and Designer Pet Life Jackets provide ultimate buoyancy and high visibility to keep pets safe in or around the water. Constructed to provide buoyancy, along with a cozy secure fit, the PAWS Aboard Pet Life Jackets features: An advanced breathable mesh underbelly for proper draining and drying, which provides your dog more comfort and healthier conditions than traditional pet life jackets, which can cause heat exhaustion and chafing.
PAWS Aboard Pet Life Jackets are easy to size for your pet in 3 steps.
Measure Pet Length
Measure from the base of the neck to the base of the tail. Keep in mind the jacket will not completely cover long-bodied dogs (corgi, dachshund, etc) which is acceptable as the main girth of the dog will be supported.
Measure Pet Body Girth
Measure the widest part of the ribcage keeping in mind the pet life jacket should be form fitting like a human life jacket to provide proper flotation.
Measure Pet Neck Girth
Measure the widest part of their neck keeping in mind the pet life jacket should be form fitting but not restrict breathing.
Dog Life Jackets are meant to keep your dog afloat when playing in the water (if they cannot swim) or if there is an accident (such as falling out of a boat). Remember that Dog Life Jackets are not a substitute for supervising your dog near the water. Get wet, have fun and stay safe!
