My dog weighs 92lbs, is skilled in swimming so I though this would be a great add on considering his age of 8. I purchased the recommend size for the dog's weight ... When he jumped into the river I had to reach in and pull him up with the handle bringing his head above water!! He was literally sinking !! I cradled him all the way to the shore. I removed the "life vest" to check it's buoyancy and found it had little to none. I doubled the vest and found minimal effort was needed to push it under the water! Now that that was over I had to reassure my dog that things were ok he eventually swam back to the boat three separate times on his own with out the vest.
I purchased this in case of an emergency for my dog and was really liking the idea but after seeing what I saw this vest won't do it. Seriously if I wasn't there when he jumped in I would have lost my best friend !! Test this product on with dog before relying on a emergency to only assume this will work.

    Comments about Neoprene Pet Life Jacket:

    This vest is flexible. Max can run around and then lay around in this vest. He's a Bug(Pug&Boston Terrier) so keeping his nose above water is very important. If he falls in he doesn't sink to the bottom like before. Then not being in distress, with lungs full of water when he surfaces, he can swim for the steps and get out. Wearing it doesn't seem to bother or restrict him.

          Comments about Neoprene Pet Life Jacket:

          My dog can swim, but she is a small dog & I felt it is best to have a life vest when she is out with me paddle boarding. I love the fact she has mobility in the lightweight vest and when she jumps/falls off the paddle board there is a easy handle on the top to pick her up and put her back on the board.

          Comments about Neoprene Pet Life Jacket:

          I got this for my mastiff that is a beginning swimmer. It seems to give him increased confidence when swimming and is very light weight. He will get out of the pool, go to the bathroom and then back in without any problems. I purchased this based on a review from The Whole Dog Journal that recommended this for strong swimmers. I would not use this for a dog that is unable to swim.

                  Our 2 little 12 and 14 pound dogs can maneuver around quite well in these life jackets. I have not tested buoyancy. We use it as a precaution when boating.
