Shopping for canine flotation devices has become easier as more people become aware of the importance of protecting their pets around the water. They can be purchased at specialty pet stores, sportsman stores and on-line. Whenever possible, it is recommended that the dog be present when purchasing the life jacket to guarantee a proper fit. The jacket should fit securely, with no gaps that would allow the dog to slip out. Jackets which are too tight can rub, causing sores.


Not only people wear personal flotation devices; some are available for dogs and other pets.

Our objective is to undergird our country’s economy by not selling out for cheap labor and cheap products made in other countries. We proudly provide an All-American WatercollarTM you can TRUST to save your pets.The patented Hedz UP Pets WatercollarTM is a personal flotation device (PFD) for dogs, a hexagonal-shaped neck water collar, made of non-absorbent, closed-cell foam with fabric covering and polypropylene strapping. These straps attach the WatercollarTM to the pet’s own collar, then close with a D-ring and/or Velcro strap. The owner must be sure the dog’s own collar is correctly fitted and will not pull off over the head. When the dog is swimming, or if he falls into the water, the WatercollarTM stays under the chin, holding the dog’s head in a position of safety, keeping the dog’s ears and nose above the water. The WatercollarTM is engineered using the same standards as human flotation requirements established by the United States Coast Guard.For puppies and older dogs with less stamina, the jacket offers additional assurance that they can remain afloat if they get too tired. Dogs are also preprogrammed with certain primal , whether it's hunting, chasing, or jumping. If the pet is on a boat and sees a duck in the water, his instinct takes over. It may seem like he's possessed to go after the water fowl. In such an unanticipated circumstance, the dog may forget about his own muscles, the temperature of the water, or the fact that he's getting tired, leading to a potentially dangerous outcome. If he's at least covered with a flotation device like a life jacket, it's easy enough to retrieve him.
