The life jacket is super cute but I wish the website had the real sizing guide because I would have gotten the Large instead of Medium. I have a picture of the ACTUAL sizing guide that is shown on the tag, which is totally different from the online sizing guide. In the description, it says a medium fits 20-50lb dogs...the tag on the life jacket says a medium fits 16-30lb dogs! The medium fits around Gypsy's waist but not around her neck... I just didn't want to get something humongous and have her slip out of it. If I had the real sizing I obviously would have ordered a Large haha. Definitely returning it for a bigger size! Here's her sizing for reference with her picture. Weight: 45-50lbs Neck: 17" Chest: 28" Body Length: 22"
This jacket is wonderful! Fits great, my grand puppy had no problem with me putting it on and now totally loves the water and feels safe! Definitely worth purchasing.
The vest worked fine in the water in regards to floatation support, water visibility and comfort for my dog. My dog enjoyed the extra support. I on the other hand was disappointed by the clips on the belly. We swam with this vest for the first time over this past week (5 swims total) and the belly clip came undone at least 1-2 times per swim. This made me very nervous for my dogs safety. I am unsure if I just got a faulty clip from production because the rest on the vest was fine.
This life jacket is so cute on my dog and it works super well. It’s very easy to put on, and my dog doesn’t mind it at all. She can swim just fine without it, but I prefer it for safety when we’re out on the lake. The handle also is great because I can lift her easily back onto the boat. I got the XXS for her as she is 9 pounds and it works great, but I think if I got another I would size up to the XS so it’s a bit longer on her.
I have a 3.5 pound Yorkiepoo. Finding a life jacket her size has been a nightmare. After reading the reviews on this product I decided to give it try despite her measurements being smaller then the chart. It fit her perfectly! There was still room for it to tighten even more if needed! Super happy with this purchase.
Bought this in medium for my whippet. Had previously tried the Ruffwear Float Coat but it wouldn't adjust small enough around the neck for my dog. This jacket ended up fitting my dog perfectly and she seemed to like having the extra support in the water!
This is very easy to put on, and my dog does not like harnesses or any thing on him, but this is very lightweight and he got used to it very quick. WHen he went into the water, I was concerned because it didn't look like it was keeping him floating, but it was, and he swam all over and I didn't have to worry about him.
I ordered this for my pup so we could stand up paddleboard together. It fits him great and is easy to put on and take off. I love that there's a ring to hook up his leash and a handle to help pull him out of the water. All of the clasps and adjustments are easy to use! I wanted a life vest that would allow for a lot of movement and comfort but would still help him whenever he's swimming. I trust the Kong brand and was delighted that I ordered this, and less than 24hrs later, it arrived at my door!
We ordered this vest for a Sealyham terrier who is 8 months old and nearly full size. She is comfortable in the vest. We took her out on the boat and she loved the experience and didn’t mind wearing the vest at all! The vest arrived with two days!!!
We love our life jacket! Junie B had her first boat day, and she loves water! She was very eager to jump right in. Although she knows how to swim pretty well, I felt much more safe with her having it on while on the boat just in case she jumped in by herself. She had no issue wearing it all day either, so it must be pretty comfortable! I can tell this will be used all summer!! Thank you Chewy & Kong for keeping us safe so we can have fun!
