    Only buy the large.

    By on

    I have four dogs (pictured) and then my mother has a shar pei and my grandmother has a German Shepherd. All of the six dogs range from 45lbs to 130lbs and this jacket fits them all perfectly. The only difference between the large and extra large is the length of straps. The actual "jacket" part is the same size (and made out of the same foam and everything). These straps are very long and will accommodate almost all medium to big breeds. Yes, the velcro things will slide around, but if you PROPERLY fit the jacket, the risk of the velcro parts sliding around is significantly reduced. You want this jacket snug, not loose. To keep them from sliding around, I've attached some photos showing some I have four dogs (pictured) and then my mother has a shar pei and my grandmother has a German Shepherd.

The handles will not be able to pull your large dog out of the water. The snaps will break if your dog is 50+lbs and you try to pull your dog out of the water. These life jackets are more like "tug" life jackets where your dog can tug you around the water. Sometimes you see this exact style on the water rescue dogs. For $13ish, this is the best that money can buy. … more

    Hmmm... not ecstatic about it.

    By on

    We purchased this our boxer. The price was great. We do like the weight of the life jacket, the overall appearance and the fact that it is not a bulky jacket. But, what we do not like is how the straps are adjusted down by using Velcro wrap around tabs. We can’t seem to adjust the straps so that they stay in place without loosing back up. I don’t know if there is a trick to it and maybe we are not doing correctly.

    Super Pup to the toy rescue

    By on

    Once we showed our 6 month old Pup how to get in and out of the pool - he took off swimming daily with or without us, so we purchased this to keep him afloat in case he got too tired out. Easy on and off clips. Easy to adjust. Floats perfectly holding him up in the tummy & under the neck.

    Straps don't stay tight

    By on

    I wouldn't recommend this if your dog is a swimmer. I think it's fine for boating or kayaking/SUP if your dog won't jump in, but if they do I wouldn't recommend it. The straps don't stay tight, so I was having to constantly re-tighten them every time my dog got out of the water. They became so loose that it was almost like he wasn't even wearing a jacket. The plus side is that it's a pretty good price compared to other dog life jackets I've seen, and I love the material and the front chest strap. However, I will be returning it since the straps don't stay tight.

    My dog loves it

    By on

    This life jacket is perfect for my 77 lb pit bull. It keeps her above water. She is heavy and muscular so her back end sinks. She loves the water, now i dont have to worry that she will drown.

    Disappointed

    By on

    I love Outward Hound products. I’m disappointed to report that this vest does not meet expectations. The straps become loose. The flotation pillow that supports the head and neck does not stay in place and gives little support.

    Works perfectly

    By on

    I had a similar life vest last summer for my dog, but she used it so much that it wore out. I found this one and it's perfect. Not bulky like a lot of other life vests, and the 2 handles really come in handy. I only with there were more color choices.

    Neck strap broke on first use

    By on

    It really is a nice material and fits perfectly. The only downfall is we went kayaking and the neck strap broke within the first mile. The straps also would't stay tight at all, so I was constantly readjusting him every chance I could. I don't think it helped my hound much.

    dog life jacket

    By on

    love this jacket for my dog, the only thing that is a problem is to adjust the neck is just a velcro wrapped around & sliding it won't stay. I'm going to get my sewing machine out & sew a piece of velcro in place. They just need to change this part.
