Remember to measure your pet for the paw-fect fit. The Kurgo Surf-n-Turf Dog Life Jacket is both a life jacket and a waterproof shell in one. Intended to comfortably fit your active dog in the water, the flotation layer can easily be removed for a perfect fit waterproof shell. Other features include two metal D-rings for leash connections, two transverse handles to help you easily control or extract your pup from the water and high-contrast color with reflective trim.
Can be used as a life vest or remove the flotation insert to be a rain coat
Two transverse handles for quick control and extraction
Two metal D-rings for leash connections
Rugged rip-stop material exterior with closed cell foam on interior
High contrast color and reflective trim. Completely machine washable
Perfect fit according to measuring guides given in description. My dog normally does not like any jackets or coats so I was worried that he wouldn't wear this one. He loves it and swims to his heart's content. Now when I get the coat out, he's excited because he knows it means swimming! It also appears to have a calming effect on him as he is easily excitable when meeting new people.
More than we hoped for!

Great fit, well made. It is a life jacket, rain coat and winter coat all in one. Great buy! Highly recommend. Our dog is very comfortable in it.
Our dog loves it!

Very well built, adjustable and seems to be comfortable for our girl. I love being able to lift her into the boat by the handle.

Havoc the amstaff loves his new life jacket. Goes on easily and he swims confidently.
Excellent fit, dog has great range of motion

The small size fits our "barrel-chested" 34lb jack russell mix great. We often have issues finding sizes small enough in the front and wide enough on his tummy, but the adjustable straps worked great. He seems to still have a great range of motion in it - he likes he zoom and roll in between swims and this hasn't stopped him at all! Ha.
Great life jacket but...

My dogs still hate the water beyond getting their feet wet. I put this jacket on Lady, took her out to the pool, sat down in the water, lifted her onto my lap so she'd feel secure in the water and she nearly scratched my legs off trying to get out. Then she ran in a panic around the yard, under the table, through the shed, crashing into bushes, rakes, flowerpots and scraping along the walkway in an attempt to free herself from the jacket. The next day, I put the jacket on her again and she wore it most of the day in the house and for walks, but I didn't try taking her to the water again. At a loss as to what to do. This is a well-made jacket with sturdy loops for lifting and guiding. ThereMy dogs still hate the water beyond getting their feet wet.

There are two D rings that are useful for leash attachment and there is even a (no-touch) tick remover secured to the collar area in case you need to remove a tick while you are out adventuring. I would definitely recommend this item. Bear in mind that the fit is, and should be, snug but it would be good to get the next size up if your dog's chest size is near (within an inch or two) the upper end of a sizing limit especially if the dog is still growing. I wish you better luck with your dog than I have had so far. Great product that I hope I will be able to convince my dogs to wear in the water.… more
Dog can confidently swim

Our 55lb staffy mix loves to swim but doesn't float very well. We had a small, cheaper life jacket that helped her but wasn't enough when she got tired. This life vest helps her stay on top of the water with very little effort. She was even jumping off of a small ledge into the water since she knew she wouldn't start sinking! Also love that it can be used as a harness while we're walking down to the water.
Fits great and floats fantastic!!!!

Fits my mini Aussie great! She was previously scared to get in the pond, and lake, but now she LOVES it... because she can stay higher in the water. Dries quickly and isn’t hard to clean. ALSO NO water in her ears so that’s a PLUS!
my dog loves it for swimming

We recently received the life jacket for our year old Golden Retriever who is an excellent swimmer on Lake Michigan, waves and all. In the past couple of days, this jacket has given our dog enough confidence to chase after the ducks for longer periods of times and to swim after us while we are in the water. I also feel more at ease when the waves are big and dog has the guts to get in the water.
We had an issue with a small tear on the darker red material by the handle and Chewy's excellent customer service sent us a new one!
