We bought this jacket last summer for our 50lb hound/shepherd mix, who has a barrel shaped chest but is very skinny. The straps are very easy to adjust so that everything fits him snugly (they are pretty long so we tuck the ends in after fastening), and he doesn't seem to mind wearing it. He can swim on his own but it does seem to work well, and keeps his head up. I like the leash clip on top, and the top strap is also very handy.
Jacket fits great and help my dog swim. Great purchase and would recommend anyone with large dog to purchase.
Good quality. Easy to put on Seems like it would be good flotation Nice handles on top
I bought a cheap vest for my lab to wear when we anchor the boat so she can stay in the water with us when we swim for long periods. It ripped the first trip out- waste of money. This vest is great- heavy duty stitching, she’s 85 lbs and we can lift her out of the water easily with the handle. She stays in and swims with us and loves it. Wish I would’ve bought this first. Highly recommend this vest.
Although we have not actually used the Flotation jacket it seems very sturdy and should be able to keep my 75# dog that's afraid of water afloat if he does fall into the pool
I bought 2 of these. The fitting specifications were spot-on. The fit was so comfortable for the dogs, they didn't mind wearing them all day. Quality buckles and a super safe design.
This worked well for my basset hound puppy (24lbs), this past weekend. We fell in the water from a floating chair and he floated on top of the water and his head was kept out of the water also. Straps are easy to adjust.
So we bought this originally for a trip to lake of the ozarks, it was the first time taking our 110 pound pit bull Golden retriever mix on vacation. I was worried about him swimming to far out getting tired ect.. so we decided to get this. Now we dont go to any lake without it. The other day i even tried to take it off while we swam to see his reaction and he practically pawed at me nonestop till i put it back on. He LOVES to float in the water. Also its a great piece of mind to know my dog has a personal floation device as well as myself. Highly recommend.
Works well. My pup doesn’t tire out as quickly when swimming compared to her previous life jacket. She doesn’t seem to mind wearing it and it doesn’t slow her down at all.
I haven't gotten to use this in the water yet. It seems solidly constructed and, most importantly, fits my dog! She has a very deep chest and I often have trouble getting items that fit her properly - the front strap might rub her leg a little ( but I feel it needs to be that far forward or it would be ineffective). She doesn't mind wearing it at all. It arrived flat, so I curled it and tied it so it would start developing a curve. I have pulled and tugged the straps and am confident in the vest if she ever needed to be lifted by it.
