pet life jackets: small and extra small dog life jackets for chihuahuas

surf's up dude!

famous chihuahua® receives several requests asking if we offer life jackets for chihuahuas because apparently they are real hard to find for small dogs.

do chihuahuas even need a life jacket in the first place? can’t all dogs swim?

no, all dogs can’t swim and many don’t like water. breeds with low body fat like a doberman pinscher and a chihuahua can have trouble in the water. older dogs can tire easily and if your chihuahua has arthritis or hip problems, they may have difficulty swimming as well. it doesn’t matter how well your dog can swim, it’s still possible for them to drown. you never know what will happen as they may tire fast or somehow become disoriented or distracted.

good golly miss molly!

most dog life jackets have lifting handles (as you see with molly the chihuahua in the picture above) that make retrieving your chihuahua much easier for you and safer. it’s handy too because you can pick them up at any time and carry them, both in the water and out.

since spring is right around the corner and it’s once again time for family fun in the sun, we did our research and found that there are a number of dog life jackets available for small and tiny dogs like the chihuahua. we put together a collection of high performance quality dog life jackets for boating, water sport adventures and activities. they come in sizes small to xxsmall for the tiniest of dogs, even a teacup-size chihuahua. note we said teacup-size, not teacup chihuahua!

in no particular order, here are dog life jackets worth taking a look at:

    Do you provide any life jackets where the “floaty” part is located under the dogs chest?

    I cant seem to find any like this. They are all located on the back or side. My chihuahua is 3/3.5 pounds. Shes slender and short and nothings seems to fit her, and looks like the life jacket would cause more trouble (from not fitting correctly/floaty areas where she doesnt need it) than help. Please get back to me, thank you for your help!
