All dogs can swim but they have so much more fun bobbing around and enjoying the water with the help of the Salus Skippy dog vest, giving you peace of mind when you take your friend out on a boat. Features Cordura nylon for durability, flotation under the belly and chest to give greater buoyancy lift and comfort against the belly lifting straps. The tummy saver padding is for the active dogs who like to explore. The two handle straps make it easy to grab and lift your heavier playmate out of the water. Ask your dog if he would like a Skippy vest and if he raises his ears that means "Yes!".


  • Padding removed from the back and positioned under the dog to give optimal buoyancy.
  • Two handle design to help lift your heavier dogs.
  • Easy on design with three buckle adjustment.
  • Side mesh pocket for leash and doggy treats.
  • "Canadian Coast Dog Approved."

GET THIS VEST! September 10, 2017
Reviewer: Laurie from Virginia
We have a 75 pound doberman and ordered the large vest for her. It fit perfectly and has a bit of room up and down for weight loss and gain. The nice thing about this vest is the way the front of the vest envelopes the chest and belly area. If you have a hard to fit dog this is your vest. It surrounds the dog like a sweater instead of fitting over the dog like a jacket. The color was great and looked wonderful against her black and tan coloring. The first thing you are going to notice about this vest is how well made it is. It doesn't feel like a fru fru pet vest that you hope will help keep your dog afloat. This vest is more in line with what you would want for yourself if out in the water and needing to keep afloat. Stitching is secure and it has floatation all around the mid section. Our girl had no issues getting around in the water and her head was above the water line the entire time. She is older and those handles are large enough to help her in and out of the water without worrying that they will break. We used both of them. I would definitely recommend this vest. I did email Salus with one request for the skippy 2.0 vest. I would include a chin float. Our dog is very old at 12 years for a doberman. As you can imagine she tires out easily where play and exercise are concerned. I never saw her snout go under water but it would be good to have a float for the dog to rest it's head on. This would be essential if the dog was involved in an accident situation or carried in a rip current to keep its head above water if it tires out. That being said, do not consider that as any reason to not buy this vest. Its better than any other on the market in my opinion and keeps the animal very high in the waterline. If you want the best for your pet this is it.

Best Life Vest! May 11, 2013
Reviewer: CJ from Vancouver
I bought this for my Boston Terrier and its the best life vest I ever seen for a dog. Quality is fantastic, the handles are awesome and I feel so much safer with him in this vest than the cheaper ones you find at Petcetera or Pet Smart. His life is priceless and it's worth the money spent on the life vest to keep him safe. I am looking now at getting one for our new family member, a Boxer, and Salus is my number one choice.

I highly recommend the product!

salus skippy dog vest - med size June 15, 2011
Reviewer: Two crazy dogs from Victoria, B.C.
The quality, fit, design, style of vest is excellent. The 2 handles on the top are the best design as well. Being fully adjustable in all areas makes the fit perfect. We tried many other dog vest life jackets & Salus makes the very best by far in all ways - it's well worth the higher price (compared to other brands prices) & actually this price here is actually over $10 cheaper than buying in our local 2 stores (when & if they ever have them in stock). Very highly recommended.
