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:

    My little dog was "fitted " by Roy at the West Marine Store in St. Clair Shores. Bought two life jackets. Roy has the patience of a saint, as pup was quite the squirmy critter!. Took pictures of Roy and finally uploaded these onto my computer to send. Needless to say, Pup is so excited when he sees the life jackets as he knows it is "boating time". Thank you Roy. You rock!

    Comments about Deluxe Pet Life Jackets:

    I have a very small dog, 6lbs. This vest fits her great and keeps her from stressing out in the water. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it could attach a little better. There is a good thick Velcro/buckle combo for around the neck with plenty of material, but only a small strap that goes around the belly which is the more sensitive area. Works great, but my pup cant tell me if its comfy or not.

            Would be really cool if the in expensive plastic leash ring was replaced with a salty looking shackle. I might even make the modification myself.

              First time we had this on our new dog she jumped out of the kayak chasing a bird. Kept her floating, handle made for easy retrieval. Easy to adjust and put on the dog.
