Great Jacket!! My dog loves it. Perfect fit for my dog. Strong stitching, solid buckles, reliable Velcro and high quality jacket make my dog safe in the water.

Good one time use
We ordered this before our weekend at the lake, and it did serve its purpose well. Our dog had a great time swimming and never had any issues. The sizing is a bit odd, we have a 30 pound terrier that wears a medium in anything else, but we did have to order a large for this vest. Our problem with this product is that after just one weekend use, it tore in two spots. I do not think it would hold up for a second weekend. We will have to buy another vest before we go back to the lake.

Top notch construction
I purchased this jacket for my Cavalier King Charles. The jacket is very well constructed. The stitching, buckles and velcro are high quality. The chin flap is sturdy and large enough to keep her face out of the water. The pink color is vibrant and the handle on top is strong and sturdy.
I would recommend buying the next size up. My Cavalier is 20 lbs and I purchased a medium. When it arrived (10 days earlier than projected!!) I tried it on her and it's a little snug. When I contacted the seller they were quick to respond and very easy to work with and they were very accommodating.

Great flotation vest for my chihuahua
Fits my chihuahua that weighs around 7lbs
Perfect. I can pick her up by the handle and set her in the water. Keeps her up just right and the chin up flap worked well.
Highly recommended vest

It fits her perfectly and I am very pleased with the product overall
I purchased this life jacket in the "Large" size for our 45lb goldendoodle. It fits her perfectly and I am very pleased with the product overall. Our dog LOVES water and will run in and swim whenever she has the chance, she is also a fantastic and fast swimmer as well. We purchased this life vest because my wife wanted to take our dog out on our kayaks and while she is a great swimmer if she was to fall (or jump) out of the kayak while out on the lake in the center she could quickly tire out when she realizes she's not near shore. Also we really like that there's a handle on the top of the life jacket meaning if she did get out it would be a lot easier for us to help her back in the kayak without struggling to lift her from her belly. Fortunately we have yet to really need the life jacket, but we have found that it does not impede her running or swimming while it's on. Also she doesn't seem to mind it too much and doesn't try to bite or shake it off. While she may prefer to not be wearing it she also doesn't hate when it's on.
Overall we are very happy with the product and I definitely would recommend it to others!

Great quality, thick padding, works well and looks great
This little life jacket is utterly adorable. It is also high quality, well made, great materials, great design for the most part. I bought an XS for my 8 pounder, but it seems a little short. He has a longer body, even though he's tiny. But it fits around him well. The only issue with the fit is around the neck. The padding in the front of the neck is very thick, which makes it a bit awkward to tighten enough. At the same time, when you do tighten the neck area, the little head support stays off to one side -- it is not adjustable, so you can't keep it centered. This is a design issue; it should be able to remain in the center because it's a great feature to keep the dog's head above water.
I tried this out for my boy's water physical therapy. He looked adorable, seemed fine wearing it, and it certainly kept him afloat. The handle for me to guide him is great, too. But because it's a bit short, it didn't really support his hind portion at all. On most dogs, this probably won't matter. But my boy was paralyzed after rupturing a disc, and is still working on regaining his strength in his hind legs, so his hind quarters seemed a bit unsupported. But the life jacket did its job and is very well made, so I like it.

Make sure you purchase the correct size by measuring your dog, not weight.
Perfect fit for my 6 lb chihuahua. Make sure you measure your dog, weight is not the most important measurement. It's about the Neck and Chest measurements. Like people, dogs also have different body types and your fitting their body to get the right fit to keep them safe and have the jacket work properly. Measurement chart is posted in the pictures.
I bet those who marked this product down didn't measure their dog properly because this is a wonderful life jacket. YOU HAVE TO BUY LIFE JACKETS FOR DOGS BY BODY MEASUREMENTS.

Nice life jacket
I bought this life jacket exclusively because it has the headrest piece. My dog has a big ol' noggin for his little body and would freak out in the water. I could tell this gives him more peace of mind. I purchased the Large for my 50 pound German Shepherd mix. Big head, little legs.It fit perfectly. Plus he's absolutely adorable in it. We'll see how it goes over the summer and I will update with how it holds up.
Update 12/23/17: still holding up! I have accidentally left it outside overnight a couple of times but still has the bright blue color and nothing is breaking apart.

Our Girl LOVES it!!!
This life vest is GREAT! We bought the Large for our 65lb black lab and it fits great. She Loves it! Gets all excited when she sees it cause she knows it kayak/swim time. I also love the removable front flap. It Does zip off, contrary to other reviews. We bought the bright pink one and it's a great color. The handle is very helpful to pull her out of the water and onto the kayak. Under the handle is also a leash loop. We LOVE this vest!!!

PICK Y+THISA LIFEJACKET you wont be disappointed
Last year we got a cheaper version of this for our 45 lb lab, by the end of the summer it just wouldnt hold him up and all the buckles broke. this vest was just afew bucks more its thicker, and better made and fits to size. the head flap to help the dog keep his head up is awesome. Our lab will swim to his death so we have to have a good jacket, very impressed!!
