1. Inflating the Up Dog: Inflating the Up Dog takes 3-6 minutes.

2. Ensure the valve pin is in the up position. When the valve pin is up, you can still pump air into the Up Dog, but it won’t lose any pressure when the pump hose is disconnected.

3. Connect the pump hose and inflate the Up Dog to 7-10 psi. The pressure regulator will activate and slowly let air out if max capacity is ever reached.

4. Electric pumps and air compressors can be used. We have adapters and e-pumps if inflating manually is an obstacle. If you have an existing e-pump, feel free to use it. You won’t void any warranty or do any damage to the Up Dog by using an off-brand pump.

Use the included 50" straps to secure the Up Dog. Tighten straps as needed to ensure it is held tightly against the side of a pool, boat, or dock.

1. Deflating the Up Dog takes just a few minutes.

2. Open the valve cap and press down on the center pin for the air valve. The pin will lock in the down position and let all of the air out. Let it sit for a few minutes while air flows out of the Up Dog.

3. Be sure to dry the Up Dog off before storing.

Storing the Up Dog inflated or deflated is acceptable. If storing deflated, ensure that the Up Dog is completely dry. If storing in a below freezing temperature, it is better to have the Up Dog unrolled, or partially inflated, where the seams won’t be stressed.

The Up Dog supports up to 250lbs
