    Possibly the world's most reliable life jacket for dogs. Same quality in every detail as the best human life jackets. The buoyancy of this life jacket has been tested by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. An adjustable belt and front allow the life jacket to fit most breeds of dog. The back of the jacket is fitted with sturdy handle by which the dog can be guided in the water or lifted out. A protective underbelly section distributes the dog's weight over a larger area and keeps the jacket firmly in place even during the most critical conditions. The reflective fabric and 3M reflectors on the back of the jacket provide effective visibility in the dark. The product is designed for use in swimming, water rescue, rehabilitation, boating and hunting. A tag around the neck has space for the owner's telephone number. Discontinued item replaced by the Life Saviour. Limited sizes and colors in stock. 
    Sizing is based on the dogs weight.

    Highly recommended
    I purchased the Hurtta Life Jacket for my dog to wear while he did re-hab for leg surgery. I took him to the lake every day for swimming so there was no impact, but he could get the exercise he needed and strengthen his muscles and build endurance. The jacket is easy to put on, stays in place on the dog, and holds up my dog. I used a 40' long line on the hook on the back so I could pull him in if he became stressed. Since he also has epilepsy, I found with the life jacket, I didn't worry about him sinking if he had a seizure. Delivery was prompt, and altho this jacket costs more than other brands found in big box stores, it fit well, is adjustable, encircles the whole body for stability. I'd highly recommend this jacket to others.

    Great Product
    My boxer refuses to go in deep water without a life jacket on, he tends to sink. The Hurtta life jacket gives him the freedom to swim out farther. He is very confident wearing it and I feel better knowing he is wearing a durable and trusted product. It fits perfectly!

    This Jacket is the best
    My service dog Sam loathes PFDs but they are a must in deep water. He doesn't even notice this one. I've even done demos with him doing dock diving in it. Since some little dogs need to dive in a vest, this is the one i recommend hands down. The pink and orange are blindingly visible. In murky water, I don't recommend the yellow. For pools and sports it's fine though.

    Questions and Answers

    Q: I have noticed some life jackets for dogs have a neck piece to keep the head afloat. Is this part of the Hurtta life jackets? Looking for something that will provide safety and fun for my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels when they're near the water.
    Asked by: Carol Keith - 5/23/2015
    A: Hi Carol
    These are human grade quality jackets, made with very high specs and great attention to detail.
    The large piece that goes across the chest helps keep the head above water. You don’t want an overweight of lift in the front end compared to the rest of the body, as it will tilt the dog up in the front and make the back end sink. It’s important there is good balance of flotation throughout the vest.
    Thank you,

    Q: I have a 80 lb chocolate lab and use a life jacket when we are kayaking the rivers or for long swims in the lake. I have had problems with other life jackets rubbing underneath his front legs and causing rope type burns that have had us at the vet. Have you had any problems with this?

    A: Hi Kim
    I have had no complaints at all about the Life Jackets.
    They are human grade, very high quality with focus on fit.
    The flap that goes around the chest is made from Neoprene and therefore comfortable and less likely to rub.
    I would recommend size 40-80 lbs for your dog.
    Thank you,

    Q: Would the smallest size of this life vest fit a very tiny dog (3 lb to 4 lb range, with chest likely around 10")? Can you also tell me the length of the smallest size vest? The dog has a back length of approx 8 inches. Thank you!
