After reviewing several life jackets for our Yorkie we decided on the outward hound and so glad we did, it fits perfectly, he has a long body and this spans his whole back and he feels so confident and comfortable he begs us to put it on so he can go swimming, it has great buoyancy (he is a huge Yorkie, 23 lbs.) and the under chin feature is an extra feature that adds extra security, esp for us when he's in the water a long time because we swim from our boat in very deep water and he wants to stay in the water for long periods of time and he loves to stop paddling and just float and this allows him to just relax, we've used it about 10 times (we keep it on him allday while in the boat) but shows absolutely no wear at all, it's very well made and the wide belly band with the 2 straps on top allows us to pick him up out of the water with ease, thank you for making such a high quality, well thought out product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmyp22 Fantastic product!
This is the best life jacket that I've ever purchased. All other jackets are unconfortable and unusable for my dachshunds because they press on their throats. This one fits them perfectly. It doesn't press on them or restrict them in the water. I love the full underneath piece instead of the usual 2 straps. Most importantly it keeps them floating and comfortable. The handle is a great feature to pick them up out of the water and put them back in the kayak. I highly recomend this product, especially for dachshunds. The only thing that could be better is if the flap that gives under the chin support was a couple inches longer and an inch wider. It does work but it could be a little bigger to be a tad more effective as it doesn't sit centered enough.

I have 2 dogs, German Short Haired Pointer mix and American Staff. Mix and both around 65lbs. Both fit into the Large perfectly! I have to say with both having very different body types this surprised me. I even bought an extra large to make sure and it was too big. My first canoe trip proved they were the BEST things since sliced bread! Both dogs were very comfortable in them and the handles were just ..... I can't even express .... Amazing! My Am Staff doesn't swim with her large chest making her unbalanced but with this on she swam half the day! My GSP was constantly jumping out of the canoe (he loves the water) and the handles made it very easy for me to fish him out without tipping the canoe...I KNOW, RIGHT! Do yourself a favor and snatch up this great deal! I also love how all the clips and ties were secured well and out of the way!

If you are thinking about buying the Outward Hound PupSaver Ripstop life jacket, don't second guess yourself! I am one to read reviews until my eyes cross and if I see even a few bad reviews I will look at another product. Boy, am I glad that I decided to go with this life jacket. I have a yellow lab (65 lbs) and she fits perfectly in the Large size. She is one to squirm when anything is put on her, and she didn't even flinch with this. She swam and swam and swam, and I was able to rest easy knowing that she had the additional floatation support. We take her on Lake Michigan which gets incredibly choppy and rough at times, but with this she swam with no problems. I ordered on a Monday morning and received the product by Tuesday afternoon. Everything from searching for the product to actually using the product was flawless. I have looked into many other life jackets, and would buy this again without thinking twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Booboo This vest should keep her safe in the surf.
We haven't used it in the water yet but it fits our Dalmatian perfectly. Easy to get on and off.

The life jacket was perfect for our overweight dog that we put in the pool to lose weight.

by AdventureAng Great flotation with handles!
If you're looking for peace of mind, then here's the life vest for you! This life vest is perfect for my 67 lb. Siberian Husky. She is a great swimmer, but is getting older and I just wanted to make sure that she could spend a lot of time in the water without being afraid that she would drown. The handles on this vest are great because you can pull your dog in with ease. The sizing is a little tricky and I ended up with an XL (even though if I went by the weight, she would have been just a large). I ordered the large first and the Velcro flaps just barely touched and it was obviously too small, so I ordered the XL and it fits perfect! Do yourself a favor and size up (especially if you want them some room to grow). She has plenty of room in the XL, but you can see by the pictures that it fits her perfectly. She never really likes "wearing" things, but actually put this on with no problem.

There was a Dog Day event at my local waterpark and I wanted my baby girl to have all the protection she can get while having fun. I was scared it wouldn't fit or hold (there is a handle you can pull the dog up by) but it fit perfectly, and I could lift her by the handle! She is 30 lbs. It didn't seem to get in the way of her having fun either, which was a surprise. I love this product.
