Kyjen Orange Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket
Life Jacket is perfect for getting a crippled dog downstairs
My arthritic dog can no longer make it down the steep colonial era staircase in my home, although he whines to come up and be with me every night. For weeks, I carefully studied the design and features of all dog harnesses available for helping crippled or senior dogs. None seemed suitable because of poor design relating to the comfort of straps around the belly and chest, a short strap that hooked into the dog collar pulling unfairly at the dog's neck, and all had manageability issues relating to the dog's weight distribution versus the placement of handles on the harness for lifting the dog. A best choice was the sturdiest harness on the market at well over $100. A friend suggested a doggie life jacket. I want to exclaim over the brilliance of his suggestion. The Outward Hound Life Jacket could not be more perfect for carrying a heavy dog comfortably and safely down my steep staircase. I spent around $20. If it starts to fall apart, I'll get another one just like it because the life jacket has extended my dog's quality of life. I am a satisfied customer. Please share this idea with everyone you know who is considering a harness for helping a dog with staircases.

Awesome Life Jacket
This came to me today, I actually ordered 2 of them. The first is for my 1 yr old Pug/Jack Russell Mix, so I ordered the medium cause everything seemed to match but he is odd shaped so I wasn't sure, well to make long story short, AWESOME..... Now my 2nd one, that one scared me more, cause this one was for my 10 yr old, 118 lb Boxer... Now everything matched as far as neck size, length but the weight only went to 90lbs, but I thought I would risk it anyway and hope for the best, well I tried it on Steeler who is , 39" at the girth, 118 lbs, it turned out GREAT... I don't have a lot of play room with the girth area but I only really need it to work when we go on vacation, we will be on boat so our fur-kids need their jacket too.. SO if you have a little larger dog and everything else matches, you might want to give it a lot of thought... ALSO, they are not REAL bulky, I have seen some that are all godly bulky that the poor dog cant move, mine moved great.... AWESOME PRODUCT AND AWESOME PRICE TOO, THANKS CHEWY,.....P.S. I will get pictures of my fur-kids with them on later today when I show my husband....

Fits my dog great
Very fast shipping. Had a problem with 1 life jacket. This company stood 100 percent behind its product and replaced it with no problem. This is a company that takes pride in what they sell. I will be a returning customer.

It's hard to know what to expect when shopping online, but I've never been disappointed by Chewy. Our life jacket fits perfectly, works great, and looks great too.

This life vest fits beautifully and is a great color for good visibility should my dog fall in the water.
Very impressed by this company and the outstanding products they offer (at amazing prices!)!!

Product not good.
I purchased two life jackets and have only used them one time the orange one is coming apart down the sides of it. I do not know what has happened to this product after only one use not made well or just old. So I wouldn't recommend buying it. The pink one I got is great no problem yet. Very unhappy with the orange one what a waste of money.

Fits the dog perfectly!
I bought one for each of my dogs, two sizes, and they fit perfectly. Now I feel better when I take the dogs on our boat. I feel the dogs will be safe if they fall overboard in any kind of water conditions. Thanks!

fits my weirdly shaped dog well [mountain cur/rat terrier mix]. it's well-constructed and she really likes the yellow mango color and how it feels on her body. now to actually get her in the water!!! [she hates water]. i'm hoping she will learn to paddle with me in my kayak...if she jumps out, i know she'll be safe with this doggy pdf!!
