K9 Float Coat Dog Life PreserverPeople are amazed when they see how well three legged dogs can swim. Getting in the water again is what we love to do, but sometimes we could use a little help when we get tired.

That’s where the Ruff Wear K9 Float Coat comes in handy. Tripawd dogs can swim farther and longer with this awesome life vest. And the strong handle can help you help your pup.

My pawrents wrote about this great life preserver for dogs last year. But Ruff Wear recently announced a close-out sale on remaining inventory for the Float Coat. So we are hoppy to re-publish this post in its entirety, complete with demonstration video and new Big Savings While Supplies Last!

help three-legged dogs swim with float coat dog life jacket(August 4, 2008) I love to swim. And yes, we three legged dogs really can swim! But since we tire easily, we can sometimes take on water.

My people discovered this the hard way, and stopped taking me to the lakes I love so much. That’s why I’m glad they got me a new K-9 Float Coat from Ruff Wear!

Now I can swim farther and longer than ever before. Ruff Wear’s new K-9 Float Coat provides the extra buoyancy your tripawd needs to truly enjoy swimming. Keep reading to read our product review and view the demonstration video we produced, or to order yours today!

float coat life preserver for three-legged swimming dogsThe K-9 Float Coat from Ruff Wear is far superior to any other dog life jackets on the market. Since this flotation device wraps all the way under the belly, it provides chest protection and support from the moment your dog enters the water. Other canine life preservers only offer flotation padding on the back, which doesn’t help until your dog is halfway under water.

With variable thickness buoyancy cells, the K-9 Float coat delivers proven fit and functionality. A generous ergonomic cut provides full range of motion in and out of the water. Putting on and removing the Float Coat is easy with three sturdy quick release buckles.

Two strong girth straps keep your dog centered and in the coat. And high contrast color options provide superior visibility.

  1. I just wore my float coat for the first time! It fit perfect and was so easy to put on and take off. Thanks for sending the yellow one, it matches my fur. Now if Mom just had a waterproof camera….

  2. Hey guys! Woohoo! Mom just ordered me a float coat in Red! Can’t wait to try it out. I might get to go on dad’s BOAT! So they figured it would be good if I had a life jacket. Thanks for the post and hope everything is well with you.

    And Calpurnia is sooo right!

    Love you,
