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.

        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.

              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.

                Comments about Deluxe Pet Life Jackets:

                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.
