The buoyancy of the Hurtta Motivation Dog 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.
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.
The Hurtta Motivation Lifeguard Life Jacket is available in hi-vis pink or yellow for safety. The size of the jacket depends upon the dogs weight so this will be the only measurement you will need in kg's.
