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.

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!!

Very safe product for my dog
I like how the life jacket is made with a wide band of support around the chest and abdomen. The long straps and large velcro area make it useable for a couple of my dogs who vary in girth size.
The large handle is easy for me to grip whether I am in the water with them or on the edge of the pool.
