Our dog is 83 pounds but by girth fits an extra large. He is only a year old and didn't experience swimming until this spring. I got him this life jacket. I liked that it has a leash attachment and mesh panels for the water to drain. It also has a sturdy handle to grab. This helped in supporting him as he was getting used to the sensation of swimming. The clips seem strong. The vest seems well made. Looking forward to more time on the lake!
for my pitty

My pitty weighs 74lbs and has a girth of 31 inches and I got the large and it fit her perfectly. She just recently discovered she loves swimming in the lake so I wanted to get her something to help while she’s learning. It has a built in leash attachment which I love. Its sturdy enough to pick her up in emergencies but it’s a life vest not a harness. I think it’s great quality and gets the job done 100% while being cute as a button

Nice quality. I like that it’s not bulky. It has a weird fit. I ordered a large for my Aussie. I don’t think a medium will fit, but it gaps in places. I haven’t been able to use it on the lake yet, so I can’t comment on that. It does have a nice handle on it though.
Measurements need to be more detailed

I measured my 12 pound male mini dachshunds chest at 18 inches so I ordered a small, since that was the only measurement on the size chart. The life jacket is so long it covers his peeing apparatus. I found this hard to believe since his breed is long in to begin with. The straps adjust in most areas and he probably would have fit fine in an xsmall. I had to cut all the tags off to try it on him so I did not attempt to return it.
Good but had buckle malfunctions

I absolutely love this life jacket for my golden it has double handle for easy lifting and no velcrow to get stuck in his fur. And it fits kinda like a harness. My golden is around 100lbs . We have the x-large jacket. It worked great the first 3 lake trips but on our last trip one of the buckles slid out of where it snaps and will no longer stay in so his life jacket can now fall off :(. The buckle didnt break anywhere but it wont hold enough to pull him up anymore. I would recommend this product if the buckle was made a bit sturdier.
Best jacket we've found.

This jacket is perfect for our 85lb shepherd mix. He's a good swimmer and loves being in the water so we didn't want something that would restrict his movement or slow him down but needed a life jacket for safety while boating and kayaking. The handle is sturdy enough to lift him if he needs assistance and with the different layers and materials, it dries very quickly. It's very light and he doesn't even seem to notice that he's wearing it so we can leave it on when he's playing on shore as well.

We have 2 dogs about 14 lbs, we got these for when we take them Kayaking and then are great. Light weight adjustable fit and out dogs love wearing them. The handle works great to pull the up and when we are taking out and we need to pull the kayak and hold the dogs
not great quality

I was hoping to love this. I take my pup paddle boarding and she’s not the most confident swimmer but doesn’t need a bulky life vest as she can swim. The leash clip pulled off the vest within ten minutes of having it on her. It definitely does not support her weight of 55 pounds as she took a dive vessel hopping and had to be scooped up.
Would not recommend, it seems pretty useless with not holding up to her weight at the size of a large.

Looking for a vest for your kayaking or boating friend? This is great. Handle on the top makes it easier when they decide to jump off and take a swim to lift them right back in. Buy it, you and your pup will love it.
Awesome Life Jacket
on Jun 3, 2019
This is the best made life jacket ever. I have a Bison/Lhasa mix, weighing 7 lbs. I order the small and it fits her perfect and she loves it. She also loves swimming, is the reason for a life jacket for her. I would have any of my dogs around my swimming pool without one on. My dogs are worst then kids when it comes to jumping in the pool.
