How To Measure Your Dog’s Girth:

Simply place the tape measure around the widest part of the rib cage. For in between sizes, we suggest to obtain the next size up. For example, dog measures 56cm XS size, recommend you obtain a S (small). (refer to sizing image)

  XX Small X Small Small Medium Large X Large
 Girth (cm) 33-43cm 43-56cm 56-69cm 69-81cm 81.91cm 91-107cm
 Coat Length (cm) 18.5cm 26cm 30cm 38cm 41.5cm 49cm
 Max.Neck (cm) 32.5cm 41cm 50cm 59cm 68cm 75cm


The neck length should not be longer than the dog. Take this measurement from the base of the neck to the body/tail joint.

The important measurement is the dog’s girth.

K9 Float coat life jacket - Great decision

Posted by Sally on September 9, 2018

Very happy with the choice we made It is clearly made with good quality fabrics and buckles.
The support under the belly with no straps touching the dog is great. Our pup will reach 25kg, so lifting him in and out of the tender, kayaks and yacht without hurting him or us was a big consideration.
Life jacket has proven easy to lift him up using the handle, and he made no complaints about it.
Good fit, and relatively easy to put on, bonus is no neck strap to clip, just an adjustable tab for fit, and 2 adjustable clips under his belly that don’t touch his skin.
