My Pomeranian loves this life vest. He loves the water but gets tried so he could not swim as long. So I decided to buy this life vest he can stay in the water and play longer! We also take him on the boat and I feel like a life vest is a must for any dog on a boat.

This is a terrific life vest except for one critical aspect: The large amount of floatation in the back and lack of collar floatation means the pet floats face (head) down and could easily drown.

A simple redesign could address this "fatal flaw." Until then, purchase a different vest with this critical feature.

            Comments about Deluxe Pet Life Jackets:

            I purchased the life jacket for a 1 year old Yorkie. The vest is a little too big on his back and the front Velcro strap is too wide for his little neck. He had a hard time swimming but his head was definitely out of the water because he couldn't move his head.

              Good product for its price, but hard to adjust since it doesn't have a belly pad so it will be comfortable. The straps rub the belly area. Need to add some support to be able to use it.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Purchased directly at the store. Did not notice it didn't have that additional belly pad.

                I like the way this vest fits my dogs. The sizing, for my dogs, was on the mark. The dogs seem comfortable in the vest and makes it easy to get them onto swim platform.
