5 Stars By Debbie on 2016-03-16 High Quality, xs fits my cat This high-quality life jacket fits my cat so well he doesn't mind it on and even fell asleep wearing it when we were on the boat today.
5 Stars By Karen on 2016-07-04 Perfect fit and style for our 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 lbs yorkies! Love these!! Not only is this the cutest pet life jacket ever, which will get all the attention on the water, but it really helps the dog float very nicely. I have a 4 1/2 lbs yorkie who wears the XXS and a 6 1/2 lbs yorkie who wears the XS. Our dogs wear the jackets when we take them kayaking. They occasionally will hop out of the kayak and take a swim. The have no problem keeping their heads up, floating nice and even as they swim around. We keep them on long bungee leashes so they don't swim too far off. We pull them back to the kayak and the handle on the back of the jackets is genius! So easy to grab the handle and pick them up to hop back in. Note: The XXS size has only one strap under the belly, while the XS has 2. No problem, XXS wouldn't have space for 2. Also all the straps close with both velcro strips and buckles. They seem very comfortable and these 2 sizes fit our dog perfectly! The dogs always get tons of compliments with ohhs and ahhs from all who see them in these jackets. So thrilled with the purchases!
2 Stars By BTA-MALL Customer on 2016-08-04 My pup kept rolling over in the water... This vest is absolutely adorable and my Boston Terrier seemed very comfortable when wearing it. I wanted to love this life jacket, I really did. However, when I put my pup in the pool, it just didn't work the way I expected it to. He had a very difficult time balancing and centering himself in the water. As soon as he stopped moving his arms and legs, he would instantly roll over (towards his side) and struggled to remain upright in the water. I had to take him out of the pool because every time he rolled, his head went completely under water. That was frightening. So, needless to say, this one is going back and I will be purchasing another one in the hopes that it works better. I understand that every dog is shaped differently and can vary greatly in size. This vest may be perfect for other dogs but for us, it just didn't work.
4 Stars By Sue Sears on 2016-07-04 Awesome, awesome Awesome, awesome, well made product. This was our 3rd neoprene life vest purchase. Now all 3 of our labradoodles have their own. You can adjust to fit snuggly or leave a little looser for more confident swimmer. Our youngest, Doc our 85 lb puppy has no desire to swim and is still somewhat fearful of the water. We decided to purchased a 3rd because we were planing a trip to the lake with all 3. Anyone who thinks a dog in water will figure it out, think again. Doc fell into our pool accidentally about a year ago playing with the other two and had to be rescued because he could not keep his head above water. To this day, he still refuses to use his back legs to swim even with the jacket on. The jacket keeps him afloat providing him the confidence he needs to be able to enjoy our pool and the peace of mind we need knowing he is safe in and around the water. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is strictly because we worry about the heat retention with the neoprene in warm tempatures when he actually has the jacket on out of the water.
5 Stars By Sara Bishoff on 2016-07-06 Almost Perfect fit I just got this today and was worried about how it was going to fit my boy. I have a rather large French bulldog (42lbs) with a large neck and chest. The life jacket fits almost perfectly. We could have used a few more inches in length but otherwise, I'm very happy with it. Zeus' neck is 19-1/2" and his chest is 26". He loves the water but sinks like a rock. We have a pool and now I will not be so worried about him jumping in the pool when I'm not looking! I'll update this once we go swimming and let you know how it works. I did research life jackets for dogs with the best buoyancy and this one is in the top ten.
5 Stars By DWillet on 2017-06-09 Excellent fit, love it for pool, lake and boating. We bought size Medium for our Catahoula Leopard Dog/American Bull Dog mix, she is 45 lbs with a broad chest and small weist. It fits her perfectly and she loves it in the pool and out on othe boat/lake. Shes a great swimmer but when her and her brother play in the pool they get rough and it makes us feel safer. I tried several others but they were bulky and not comfortable. The Neoprene dries fast, fits her body shape and she's happy putting it on. Love the Velcro! I bought the Large for her brother who weighs 55lbs and is taller but it was big. He is too large for the Medium so we just have to adjust it best we can.
5 Stars By Michele on 2017-06-14 One of the Smartest Purchases I have ever made!!! I have a 107 lb. American Bull Dog with the only exposure to a pool is a large plastic kiddie pool. Then I bought a new home with a full size in ground pool. I tried getting him to get in the big pool but he was too scared when there was nowhere for his feet to plant. I purchased the life jacket to try and get him to feel better about getting in the water. We are still working with him and he is getting better. I think he feels a bit safer with it on. I love the handle on the back of the life jacket, when he gets uneasy I can grab it like a suitcase and pull up on it so he does not panic. Our dog is a person too so we keep him just as safe.
5 Stars By NIKKI on 2016-07-02 Love it. Love it... My dog loves it ... Got the small ..She's appr 16 lbs she has a large chest 20" girth and tiny waist and neck .. Adjusts to fit her perfectly .. She can swim but generally hates water .. She's fallen in now ... Repeatedly .. .. Head first last night actually ..Brings her head right up and honestly she puts zero effort into swimming she just bobs there until I grab her .. She's a jerk ... Doesn't really raise her back end but she couldn't care less ... It's her head im worried about ... Dries extremely fast. Really glad I went with the neoprene I've had standard ones previously while they're more bouyant theyre bulkier, Warmer, and don't dry as fast... Also kinda freaked the dogs out since it floated them in unnatural positions .. The neoprene just adds some extra help esp with their head suuuuper happy with my purchase we get tons of compliments .. Wish it came in pink tho :-)
5 Stars By JS on 2016-07-10 Great life jacket Love this life jacket for my 4 pound yorkiepoo Matilda. She loves to kayak and swim. This fits her very well and keeps her a float when she swims. Highly recommendðŸ’œ
5 Stars By Dan Mikovich on 2016-08-23 Fits perfectly Although I haven't actually tested this in water, my review will be based on the fit. I measured my chihuahua and ordered according to the guidelines which were accurate. It fits him perfectly. At first, he stood completely still and didn't move but he eventually got used to it and started moving around. He'll thank me later!
