Buoyancy in these 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 high luminosity pink or blue polka dot or luminescent yellow/green 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, avoiding distressing over-heating and chafing. 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 grab-handle can be used for lifting the dogs directly out of the water; it’s equally useful when just transferring your dog from ship to shore. The D-ring, conveniently fitted just in front of the grab handle, can be used to attach a leash. After-care: These resilient life jackets can be either hand rinsed in cool tap water or machine washed in a normal 40 degree wash, then tumble or hang dry. Spares pack included! If one of the prongs on a snap-click fastening breaks (and to date we’ve had one report of such a breakage!), with every jacket we include two replacement fastenings. You’ll probably never need to use one of the spares – but it’ll be worth its weight in gold if you do!
