Very tiny - 4-5 lb pet floaty, not life jacket by nonya07/25/2012
If you have a very small pet, this will fit. I like the design except for 1 factor. The zipper on top of the jacket zips from the rump up to the neck. If you are in the water with your pet and water pressure is in the dog's face (wave, river) the zipper gets unzipped by the water. Should the puppy fall off the boat, it might buy you time or aid in visability, but I would never rely on it as a safety device. This is great for floating together or teaching puppy to paddle in calm water (pool)
ITEM RETURNED by melrose12/05/2012
I returned the item because it did not fit and my dog did not like the idea. Nothing against the item she is just funny that way It was of good quality and a good idea As I never received a credit for the return maybe you could look into number 5009941DM00
I have two border collies; one LOVES the water, but was afraid to swim, the other was indifferent. After buying this flotation jacket for each of them, they BOTH are happily swimming with me! The jacket zips up over the back, although it's a little harder to zip up over my rough-coated collie without catching hair. The "collar" helps to keep their heads above water and the bottom that covers the stomach area is a mesh which facilitates draining. The two handles make it easy to lift the dog if needed. It's a great that my dogs are finally able to enjoy swimming. These jackets have put the dogs back to enjoying the "dog days" of summer. I think this sells for a reasonable price, although one could argue seeing them having so much fun is ...priceless!!!
Size runs small and difficult to wear by Jennifer08/31/2013
The image does not show that there is a net with two holes where you fit your dog's forelegs, which makes it difficult to wear on your dog. Unfortunately, it did not fit my 7-month old Golden Retriever and will need to return the item in exchange of hopefully a better designed life jacket for large breed.
