The Julius-K9 Multifunctional 3-in-1 Dog Vest removable floating foam pads can be used in multiple ways:
- Swimming vest/dog life jacket: Keep your dog safe in the water, especially breeds that are challenged in swimming due to their physical structure and/or lack of body fat (Staffies, English and French Bulldogs, etc.). A strong handle on the top of the vest allows you to help your dog out of the water.
- Neoprene jacket: Remove the foam pads and the jacket will protect your dog from the rain, wind, and cold.
- Rehabilitation therapy harness: This is an excellent vest for hydrotherapy because you can reduce or increase the number of floating pads to change the difficulty level of the exercise. You can also use this vest to control your dog while doing ball work.
The Julius-K9 Multifunctional 3-in-1 Dog Vest has a strong handle and a ring for a leash, so that it's easy to control or hold your dog. The Swimming Vest has a label "patch" on each side that is attached with Velcro. The ones that come with the vest say "Julius-K9," but additional labels with different words and phrases can be purchased separately.
The vest comes with two foam pads (one for the belly portion of the vest and one for the portion that covers the dog's back).

How to Measure Your Dog: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure from just behind your dog's front legs all the way around him. You are measuring the circumference of the body just behind the front legs, the girth, like measuring a person for a belt.
