I purchased a small for my standard dachshund. He is about 15lbs and rather looong. This vest was perfect for picking him up by the handle as well as leashing him with the D ring on the life vest. Initially bought this vest just for the boat as it says advanced swimmer but this is his first summer and he used this vest for his first swim! It worked great & kept him afloat! Buying another when it goes on sale to have a back up.
Got this for our 8lb Pomeranian for going on the boat. No swimming yet. It’s adorable, lightweight, easy on & off plus very durable! She’s been wearing it for 2 seasons now & we love it! Everyone comments on how cute it is! Highly recommend!
Fits just slightly loose on my 14lb chihuahua terrier mix, despite what the measurements say. He was able to slip right out on land. However, this worked BEAUTIFULLY in the water especially for the price.
I bought this cute Life Vest for my Giant Schnauzer. I followed the measurement instructions but it's way too large for her and she's a big block at about 85 lbs. I'm donating it to the MCSO K-9's. If you are ordering and close to the next size up DON"T size up.
My Frenchie Puppy Weighs 12.8lbs 13" Long got him a size small, had to put on the smallest setting to fit, which means he can grow with it! My Maltese is 9.8lbs measures 13" got her a xsmall and it is snug, and short. I'm hoping once her hair is wet it wont be as tight. Overall very happy with the price and quality. Lightweight, not bulky cute color.
I like this jacket but I don’t love it. It definitely works great as a flotation device, no worries there. And it allows for great movement for running and jumping. The part I don’t like is that it supports my dogs middle section so well that it actually angles his face into the water so as he swims he is sucking in water as he breathes. Not sure if this is because of my dog’s body shape or because the vest is very floaty, take that as you will. My 75 lb boxer pit mix just fits into the XL, we could have done a large instead, the vest has lots of room for adjustment.
My 6.5 pound silky mix loves her life jacket and when she spontaneously jumped off my paddle board it was so easy to use the handle on top to pop her out of the water and back on the board. She can swim to shore in it and then run around. I pack it every time I bring my suit somewhere - gives me great piece of mind.
Not too bulky and very comfy. My girl wears it without any problem and has freedom of movement.
Super cute life jacket for dogs! My dogs are great swimmers, but I got them for kayaking & paddle boarding on the lakes for extra security. It is not bulky & helped them swim much longer.
This was a game changer for my dog! He would only get in to about chest deep and today we went on a hike and the river was pretty deep I expected him to jump in and the retreat back to the shore as he does l, but he enjoyed about two hours of fetching his ball in and out of the deeper parts of the river. I had call it quits or head be in there forever.
