The ultimate in canine flotation

Which life vest is best for your dog? Compare life vests

Provide safety for your water-loving canine companion, and peace of mind for you, in and around the water.

People think all dogs can swim. Not so! If your dog isn't an ace in the water no worries! A Ruff Wear K-9 Float Coat can sort you out. Some breeds are notoriously poor swimmers. Even if your dog can swim, she probably can't swim forever, so if you're going out on a boat or paddling with your dog, if you bring a life jacket for yourself it's a good idea to bring one for your furry sidekick.

One of the biggest advantages of a Ruff Wear Float Coat is the strategically placed buoyancy cells that support dogs in a natural horizontal swimming position, allowing them to go farther, longer, with less fatigue.

Ideal for all water activities, the K-9 Float Coat is a premium, fully-featured life jacket that includes thoughtful details like a strong handle, optimally positioned to lift dogs out of the water, and 3M Scotchlite reflective trim for enhanced visibility in or out of the water.

Key Features

  • Natural swimming position aided by strategically-placed foam panels
  • Confidence-inspiring canine life jacket built with time-proven, abrasion-resistant materials
  • Strong, low-profile assistance handle makes it easy to lift dogs out of the water
  • Wide size range fits dogs of all shapes and sizes
  • Neck closure adjusts for a range of dog sizes, yet is permanently attached and secure
  • Easy-to-clip, sheltered buckles stay in place for easy, one-handed clipping
  • Water-compatible webbing remains stable in wet environments
  • Reflective trim for enhanced visibility in or out of the water
  • PVC-free foam buoyancy cells float dog in a natural horizontal swimming position


Great for kayaking, canoeing and other paddling, swimming, sailing, boating, dogs who are new to the water and dogs who are not natural swimmers.

Our Labrador, Capri just loves the water when camping and we can’t keep her out of it. The float coat gives us peace of mind as we know she won’t ‘sink’ when her thick coat gets soaked. We ordered a size medium and it is a good fit around her neck and chest, with the understraps giving a custom fit. Capri is very comfortable and doesn’t seem to mind wearing it or have restricted movement when swimming. 10/10 product and worth the investment! Michelle Harrison, Mangerton NSW

We have a Ruff wear part at Water Rescue. Kitty loves her new float coat. Such a pretty shade for the crazy lady but her yellow one was fantastic too. She just grew.We recommend the Ruff float coats and harnesses for training. They last really well and keep our dogs nice and safe when we play in the water. Collene Waterland, Bonbeach VIC

This product is fantastic. Chewy loves it. It is short enough to not over-float his rear end like his previous life jacket and keeps his body nice and level in the water. It was a very good fit - size charts are very accurate and a huge help when buying online. KAREN TREMBATH, CLOVERDALE WA

We have a Mini Schnauzer who hates the water. The K-9 Float Coat is fantastic. It fits him well and the handle on the back makes for easy retrieval if needed. It is strong and extremely well made. It is the first item I have bought from you but with the quality of service and product it won't be the last.
Thank you so much.

Would love to compliment you on your amazing products. Very well made. Fit extremely well and your service has been amazing. Will most certainly be recommending and buying again in the future. Also thanks for a very easy return too. These products are making life for out 11 yr old rottie much easier. She can now swim slot more without getting so tired with her jacket on and he boots give her grip on my paddle board without marking it at all. Thanks waggle team.

Our Smooth Fox Terrier had an ACL reconstruction on his R/Hindquarter, part of his rehab was to include swimming. I brought two, one for him and one for our other Fox Terrier. These K-9 Float Coats are excellent, it keeps them both very buoyant in the water and they love getting them put on as they know that they will be swimming soon after. Thanks for the product and I fully endorse these coats after seeing how well our two fur-kids have taken to them. Great and a must for rehab dogs, as it assists in flotation for the dog and sits them in a natural position with full freedom of both front and rear leg kicking actions.

The K-9 Float coat has given my dog Bundy (Rottie X German Short Hair) who unfortunately was born with bad back legs great confidence in the water. Because of his condition swimming is the only activity he can do without too much discomfort. It fits well and i can help him out of the pool with the inbuilt handle. Great Gear. Andrew.
