Prone to slipping backwards on the torso. It needs lateral chest straps. The only thing keeping if from moving backwards is the collar. Leaves you the option of putting your dog in the fetal position or having the dog wear it as a belt. Did they even test this?

It is easy to put on and take off, but I wouldn't want to have to test it for function.

Eh.

I BOUGHT THE MTI ADVENTUREWEAR LIFEJACKET FOR MY DACSCHUND WHO WEIGHS 13 POUNDS SO SHE CAN PLAY AND SWIM IN THE POOL. I WENT TO ANSWER MY DOOR FOR A MINUTE AND WHEN I GOT BACK I FOUND MY DOG LAYING ON HER SIDE TAKING IN WATER AND UNABLE TO ROLL BACK OVER ON HER BELLY... I IMMEDIATELY GRABBED HER OUT OF THE WATER AND PUT HER FACE DOWN AND BEGAN TO PAT HER OVER HER LUNGS TO REMOVE ALL THE WATER SHE HAD INHALED. IF I WOULD NOT HAVE REACHED MY DOG IN TIME, SHE WOULD HAVE DROWNED. THANK GOD I GOT TO HER IN TIME. THIS FLOTATION DEVICE IS VERY DANGEROUS, IT HAS THE FLOATS ON THE SIDES AND NO FLOATS AT THE TOP SO IF YOUR DOG ROLLS OVER TO ITS SIDE, HE OR SHE IS NOT CAPABLE OF ROLLING BACK OVER BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT IT IS CONSTRUCTED. THERE IS NO FLOTATION AT THE TOP SO IT IS VERY EASY TO FLIP OVER CAUSING YOUR DOG TO BE UPSIDE DOWN IN THE WATER. I WILL SPEAK TO THE MANUFACTURE OF THIS PRODUCT AND LET THEM KNOW WHAT A BAD EXPERIENCE I HAD.

Although my dog is a strong swimmer, he wears this vest whenever we are in the boat. He has been swimming with this vest and it does not seem to restrict his swimming ability. Bouyancy is provided "under" the dogs body which lifts it out of the water. This as opposed to vests which are worn on the dogs back which cause the straps to dig into the dogs underbody and create discomfort.

My dog seems pleased with this equipment.

Works exactly as described -- with the dog lifted in the correct and natural position for swimming.

Be careful if your pet is between weights/sizes. I have a seventeen pound Yorkie and he almost slipped out of the small. If your dog has a lot of hair, like a Yorkie, it might be easier to get them a little wet first, so you can properly tighten the straps.

Riley loves to kayak! He has his place on the bow, covered with stair tread tape (so he doesn't slip off), and he rides on the local lakes like a bowsprit. He will still go in once in a while. This excellent PFD keeps him floating higher in the water and provides a convenient handle in the mid back so it is easy to just paddle over, grab him and hoist him aboard. It keeps him floating in a solid head up attitude. I'll bet he could float and paddle indefinitely wearing this thing. He thinks he is stylish and fashionable when he is wearing it and he gets all excited cause he KNOWS he's going boating! Please note! All though this is a great PFD [Puppy Flotation Device] Riley rides the bow in FLAT WATER. This isn't real good for surf and rapids!You might as well save launching the boat and just toss the dog in!

Although the product is well constructed it did not work for my Staffie. I tried several adjustments to try to make it work but could not. I purchased the Medium size life jacket - he's a muscular 40lbs, 18" tall happy boy. I liked the idea of flotation under and around the animal unfortunately the life jacket seems to slip around a little bit and with the floatation underneath moving caused the dog to "roll" around as he tried to keep himself from flipping on his side. The dog was also able to slide out of the jacket while in the canoe. Not a good thing in the middle of a 250' deep river.

I own a 90# lab, device works great so he can swim with more ease and distance with me in deep water.

Fitting is universal but could be more streamlined.

We tried another type of canine flotation device, and our boy dog was too embarrassed and upset to stand up in it. He's a lab and a great swimmer but needs hydro-therapy for a leg injury. I was holding up his chest for support while he was swimming and thought that the perfect safety vest would do just what I was doing -- support only the chest area and the neck. I thought about creating such a jacket and then found it was already in production and on Amazon. This jacket is exactly what I was looking for.

It only has padding where the dog needs it -- on the underside -- unlike others that encase the whole body. I slip the top one of the middle straps through the yellow neck loop before connecting it and have had no problem with the vest slipping down while the dog is swimming. These vests are great for boating dogs who don't swim or for swimming dogs who swim in cooler and deep waters. I bought one for each of my dogs who like to swim all year round. Their internal organs are kept warm by the padding, and I don't have to worry about their safety when they go out a bit farther than I'd like. Don't bother looking at the other vests, these rock.

Update to original review:

It's over six months later and the mti underdog still looks and works like new ... and that's with my labrador retriever using it during his rehab work twice a week. He walks to the water and waits for me to put it on, then we go out into the water for his 55 minute-long swimming session. This is really a quality product, and it's worked marvelously for Ciaran. The design of this product is great, there's only support and warmth where he needs it -- under the dog.
