We have two West Highland Terriers around 20LBs. We have used the Outward hound and the West Marine deluxe in the past. The West Marine Deluxe only uses two straps around the body which cause the straps to dig in when lifting the dogs by the handle. The outward hound is a great jacket but the fit could have been better on a small dog. It was bulky around the neck and the reinforcing cloth under the belly proved to be a restrictive for a male dog. The WM Neoprene fit exceptionally well with a zipper on the top and allowed freedom of movement. There is band that raps completely around the belly but still allows the dogs to relieve themselves with out removing the jacket. It all comes down to how the jackets fit your particular dog.

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.

      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.

            My sister insisted on a popular name brand product. My non swimming dog hated it. And after four uses, it ripped. And it was expensive. This vest that I bought is just amazing. My dog feels like it's a second skin, I guess. Magically, she just runs into the water and swims like a fish! I am thrilled!

                  The west marine store was a great help the showed use the vest they had and help us find the right one for our dog which wasn't easy since he is a litte fat but the one we found fits him good was very easy to adjust he doesnt try to get out of it so we guess he likes it to the handle on it makes it easy to lift him out of the water and he doesn't have any problem swimming in it.
