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 L737Rod Wow! Don't Pass This By!
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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorwichMom Great product!
We bought 2 small size for our Norwich terriers. It worked well for the 14.5 lb girl but was barely big enough to go around the 19.5 lb boy. I ordered these one evening & received them the next day. I called customer service. They sent a medium out that day and I received it the next day. I am very pleased with the product. Spinner & Cricket love putting them on. I haven't tried it in water yet but I'm sure it will be fine. Both customer service representatives were outstanding as always. I only shop elsewhere on the rare occasion that Chewy does not have what I need. Chewy is the best! I highly recommend Chewy and this product. Will add a photo later.

by Andrea Simply the best!
I purchased this vest for my 45 pound heeler, Bear, so that we could safely kayak the bay area of Texas. It surpassed my expectations, and was the perfect purchase. Bear had never been on the water before, so I was slightly apprehensive taking him out there, but he was a natural, and the life jacket gave me the reassurance I needed--just in case--It's well-made and fits wonderfully, although I would say if you have a breed that has deep ribs or a large chest, definitely go up a size. I originally got the Medium, but it barely buckled around Bear, even though by weight it should have fit. SO, needless to say, my little border collie is the proud owner of a size Medium jacket for our trips to the lake. Oh, and excellent customer service and super fast shipping. Will definitely use chewy.com again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kekec22 It keeps even the heaviest afloat!
I have a 90lb male pitbull and hes a good swimmer but tends to freak out in the deep end so i bought this to make him feel safer in the deep. It keeps him afloat great and im able to pull him up from the water with the two handles. It is starting to tear a little but thats from pulling him up from the water onto the boat several times. He's so heavy! It is a freat lifejacket though! He doesnt mins it at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Juliet Awesome pet life jacket! Highly recommend!!!
My shorkie actually felt very comfortable wearing the life jacket and was ready for the Olympic dog swimming try outs by the end of the first day on the lake.
The product is very well made and the design is great! I like how easy it is to put it on her. The life jacket comes with velcro attachments and sturdy harness strap/clips along with a convenient handle to quickly grab your pooch when needed.
