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 Vests:

      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.

        Comments about Deluxe Pet Vests:

        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.

            Comments about West Marine Deluxe Pet Vests:

            We have 2 small dogs: one 18 lbs one 20 lbs. Anytime we are on our boat they have these on because as soon as we stop to hang out they jump off. Even better, our Shih-Tzu figured out he doesn't have to paddle and can just float in it. The funniest thing we have ever seen! They work both in our pool and on our boat. The handle is very sturdy and we can easily lift the pups out of the water. They don't flip over with these on, and don't mind wearing them.

                It's too early to comment much as the river is still frozen, however, our doggie tried it on and it fits well, is easily adjusted and appears that is will work this summer.

                as expected...on time in good condition.

                In spite of a Miniture Picher being a long bodied dog the small was too long for the dog. We we should have gone for the smallest vest despite the rating of 12 - 24 lbs
