SUP Life Jackets for Dogs - UnderDOG

Once you get into stand up paddle boarding, youll soon realize that you can effortlessly spend hours on the water. Why not bring some company (in the form of mans best friend) along for the ride and the scenery. Its easy to throw the dog up on the front of your board for a ride along. If youre going far from shore, its a good idea to outfit your pooch in an SUP life jacket for dogs. The UnderDOG by MTI is one of the best solutions on the market.

This innovative SUP life jacket for dogs focuses the vest flotation under the chest of the dog, which raises the dogs head higher above the waterline than other cape style life jackets for dogs, which focus the flotation on top of the back of the dog and flattens the dog out in the water with the hind quarters up higher. The UnderDOG positions the dog in a natural swim angle (head high, hind quarters lower, and the back at an upward angle) to boost their ability to swim to safety on their own.

There is a reinforced carry handle that serves double duty. It allows you to easily pick the dog out of the water and is designed to easily support the full weight of a wet dog. It also operates as a leash attachment point, which is handy when walking the dog on docks or other areas where there is a chance for the dog to fall in.

About SUP Life Jacket Producer MTI

MTI, out of Massachusetts, has been making life jackets for paddlesports enthusiasts in the United States since 1991, but their roots and experience in life vest production dates back to the 1930s in Japan where the current owners grandfather originally started making life jackets. Its a small, family owned paddle sports company and the focus on quality shows thru. Many of their personal floatation devices (PFDs) are made in a factory owned by their extended family in Shanghai.

In light of the 2008 United States Coast Guard ruling that stand up paddle boarders are required to have a wearable PFD (Personal Flotation Device) aboard their vessel at all times when venturing beyond swimming, surfing, or bathing areas, MTI has made a concerted effort to provide lightweight, comfortable, and SUP-friendly life jacket solutions. They have done an outstanding job thus far and have established themselves as a leader in this niche SUP life jacket market. MTI offers low-profile, inflatable SUP life vests that are worn around the waist ready for deployment when necessary. Thus they stay out of your way while paddling around. In the unfortunate event you need a life vest, simply trigger the CO2 inflation canister and a bladder inflates that you can put over your neck. They also offer more standard lightweight stand up paddle surfing life vests that are designed not to interfere with arm movement.

MTI is focused on producing the best personal flotation devices on the market. They don't veer off focus by creating other products for the paddlesports industry such as boats or paddles. They work closely with the United States Coast Guard to ensure they are keeping up with the latest PFD needs, and this is precisely why they were a first mover in the stand up paddle surfing life vest market. Like the rest of their PFD products, the design of their SUP life vests is guided by six core principles that are intended to get a quality safety product into as many hands as possible, and then to ensure they get used once they are purchased. Here are the guiding principles:

  1. Make it comfortable
  2. Make it look good
  3. Focus on practical and useful features
  4. Make it affordable
  5. Meet or exceed all Coast Guard regulations
  6. Build it to last

Go with an MTI SUP life vest and you can't really go wrong!

Love this vest July 15, 2014
Review by: Becky from Warrenton, VA  
I have the cape type vest, but I have found that the dogs are more comfortable in this vest.  I have found that it is easier to pull the dog up onto the board if they fall off or jump off.  More freedom of movement less chance of rubbing on the dog.
