Customer Reviews

This is a well made, great quality product.
Martina Fowler
I can't keep my pitbulls out of the water... Now they can swim all day without getting too worn out, and they will stay safe!
Kristen M. Ackerbauer
If my dog jumps out into the water he can easily be pulled back in with the handle on top!

I was hesitant to spend this much money on a PFD for my dog. After using it I'm really glad I did. The vest is really well designed and is easy to put on and take off. Our dog didn't seem to mind wearing it at all. We bought this vest so we could start taking our dog with us when we go kayaking. He was already a strong swimmer but this gave him the confidence to stay in the water for most of our trip. What I really appreciate about this vest is there are no exposed straps or buckles. Everything is concealed and neatly tucked away. This was very important when we needed to lift him out of the water and into the kayak. The other jackets we looked at all had the straps and buckles exposed along the sides which could have easily gotten caught on something when pulling him into the kayak.

The vest is very well made and I expect it will stand up to years of use. The material is very durable and it is highly visible and reflective so it can be seen from a great distance. This vest also did a great job of keeping him up and his head out of the water even when he wasn't actively kicking. This vest wraps completely around the dogs chest while most other vests stop along the sides and only the straps wrap around. This is important for 3 reasons: it prevents their fur from getting caught in the buckles, it adds flotation material under dog providing additional buoyancy, and finally it distributes pressure when lifting him up and out of water across entire chest.

We bought this life jacket for my 21 LB French Bulldog. Her girth measures 21 inches...in between size XS & S. We decided to order size S, and it fits her perfectly. This is a well-designed, high quality jacket. Totally worth the money.
Now she is ready to go kayaking with us.

I am an avid outdoors-man and I love to take my American Pit Bull Terrier on hiking and camping trips with me. He is almost 7 years old now and weighs approx. 75-80lbs. This product is very easy to use, hasn't left any irritation, and assures me that my dog won't drown. He is in very good shape and a great swimmer and doesn't need a floatation vest in most cases. I access a secluded campsite that requires tubing/swimming gear 500+ yards across a mountain lake to reduce the extra 3 mile hike. My buddies and I load our gear up on inner tubes, sit in our own to swim across, and I put the vest on my dog. I can rest through the center of the tube to help kick, let the group get a good head start with most of the gear and wait with my dog. Once they are about halfway across the lake i slide through and rest in the center of the tube so I can help kick but my dog does most of the work while I hold the handle and let him pull me across as my group calls for him. We all end up reaching the other side at the same time. I recommend this product to anyone who is involved with boating, swimming, hiking, camping, where they would like to bring their pet along. I've tossed my dog into the water wearing the vest and he pops right up. In the event your pet was knocked out or injured they would not sink and the vest is also reflective so even in the dark with a flashlight they can be located. Made of great quality and adjustable...if your dog doesn't have a deep chest or full body and around 75-80lbs I would recommend the medium size. My dog is on the smallest adjustments however he is very compact and muscular(APBT standard). I look forward to using this product for years to come and allowing my pet to accompany me even in his more docile downhill years.

Bought this life vest for our 100lb. lab after his other vest broke as we were lifting him out of the water ... this vest is well constructed and sturdy ... other vests are cumbersome and hard to get on - this one fits easily!

I purchased this to replace a cheaper 'PawsAboard' vest that my boy outgrew (and wore out). He's a 5 year old Lab and a great swimmer, but he plays hard and gets worn out. I also worry about injuries, which is why I sprung for this more expensive vest. I also like the high visibility of the yellow. And the handle to pull him into the boat, or to just grab him when he's rowdy and small children are around. WELL... I could tell right away when I opened the box that this vest is WAY worth the extra $. The material and stitching are great, the handle is very strong and reinforced, and it has decent reflective aspects (4 rows of reflective 'piping' on the back and sides). It took a bit longer to adjust the staps (a few extra minutes) but the upside to this is you only have to adjust it initially (until they grow), and the straps tuck away neater than some others I've seen. Also, the neck portion slides into itself as it's made tighter, I just love the fit and design. I really like this vest and it also looks nice on him, not flimsy or cheap.

Our Wire Fox Terrier loves to swim in the pool. Though she has become a confident swimmer, wearing a life jacket allows her to play games longer and become less fatigued when we are all swimming. We used another life jacket for many years. It was "good enough". But this life jacket is made with precision and care. The quality is unmistakable. Fits her proportions perfectly with far less bulk -- no sacrifice in safety or support. The way this fits around her neck helps elevate her head in a more natural swimming position. I love when a company puts this much quality into their product. I am a fan.
