        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

          Best Uses

            Comments about Deluxe Pet Vests:

            This life vest was not very flexible and the location of the straps are not ideal for a male dog. The second trap went over my male pom's man parts and was extremely uncomfortable for him. The straps also don't have any sort of comfort covering so that was even worse. I have since bought a life vest from another company that is much better quality, more comfortable and more flexible.

            Service and delivery comments:

            They make is so impossible to return items. The invoice in the package says to go to the website - the website tells you to call someone and then the person just gives you a number to put on your paper invoice. It was ridiculous.

              Our black lab doesn't seem to mind wearing this all day on our motorboat. Easy to put on, very easy to adjust, true to size according to the sizing chart. We tested it out,it seems to work well, and the handle held up well when we lifted all 80 pounds of her out of the water into the boat. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that we haven't had to test its use (thankfully) in a real emergency should our dog not be awake and alert. A must for furry family members on boats! Check out her picture for style and fit! She sure looks happy!! Thanks West Marine!

                Comments about Deluxe Pet Vests:

                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.

                            We were cautioned about trying to get a cat to wear it but we tried anyway. He's almost 11lbs and slightly handycatted due to a neurological problem. Since she can barely walk in this (usually just tips over)so it's great to keep her in place because she has no fear and would just walk off the end of the boat.

                                I guess that the best thing that can be said is that our husky didn't freak out when we fitted him. He's not a water dog so I can't attest to recreational use. He wears it for safety in case he goes overboard. We're pleased with the workmanship, fit and adjustability.
