Buoyancy in the ‘Up Buoy’ Classic life jackets is provided by three high-density expanded polyethelene (EPE) panels fitted along the jacket’s length. Two additional EPE panels are located under the dog’s head, raising it above the body and keeping it clear of the water level. The jackets are designed to float your dog in a horizontal swimming position. The high luminosity orange fabric offers high visibility whilst additional reflective strips enable identification in poor visibility conditions. The jackets combine three different deniers of fabric with velcro panels and plastic snap-click fastenings to offer the optimum combination of security and comfort. The sophisticated, breathable panels which fit around the dog’s tummy use a combination of neoprene and terylene, designed to shed water quickly. Chest and neck straps are fully adjustable and feature tough self-fastening velcro panels. Located over the velcro panels, the quick-release snap-click fastenings create an extra layer of security. The two D-rings, conveniently fitted at both ends of the grab handle, can be used to attach a leash. The grab-handle can be used for lifting smaller dogs directly out of the water and guiding larger dogs to landing areas. The jacket has a cute little flapped pocket – big enough for a small stock of emergency poo bags! Every jacket is supplied with two replacement fasteners. Selecting the best size for your dog: Measure around your dog’s chest (girth) and neck. Now look at the ‘Essential’ parts of the table below. You’ll see that your dog’s chest and neck measurements will have either determined the appropriate size of life jacket or reduced the possibilities to a choice of two sizes. Where the table indicates that two sizes of life jackets may suit your dog, the better size will become evident when you look at the ‘Desirable’ (maximum weight) and ‘Preferable’ (minimum length) part of the table. Please remember: the chest measurement is all-important.
