Why We Built The Dog Flotation Vest With Petco

If we plan on wearing a PFD—even if it's just strapped to our boats—you better believe our best friend is buckled up in our Dog Flotation Vest. We worked with Petco to ensure a solid fit that keeps pups afloat from head to tail so they can paddle comfortably on the lake or river.

used and slightly abused

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

After maybe 15 trips to the lake and maybe 200 pulls out of the water onto the paddle board the seams have pretty much blown out. Our 40 pound doodle puppy put this through the ringer. It is a great vest for swimming, just not rescuing. He seemed comfortable swimming and running on the beach while wearing the vest. I see the price has dropped, it may be worth another try, but I will likely try to reinforce the seams before use on the next one.

Better for smaller breeds/ builds

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I was given this product by Backcountry but this is my honest opinion. I used this on my 95lb Bernese Mountain Dog. First glance I loved the harness idea but after it being on I can say I'm not a big fan. Unfortunately, the neck/chest part of the flotation harness was to small leading to the part in between his legs fitting awkward. The buckle barely buckled and there was a significant gap between the device material under the buckle. The belly band did however have plenty of room and had extra slack. The material was durable and love the vibrant color easy to see on the water. I was really hoping to love the minimalist aspect of the design and its low profile but unfortunately for the big bear it just didn't fit him well.

Fantastic Floatation

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. First I want to go over fitting. My golden retriever is 61 lbs on the smaller size and fits in an XL flotation vest, where it gives him the ability to adjust to a snug fit and maneuver in the water comfortably. Features we liked about this life vest are the harness like shape and fit around his body, the handle to pull him up on a paddleboard or boat, lightweight, great floatation, and the color which has fared pretty well in the dark acting a little like a reflective vest. We have used this vest on our hikes that lead to alpine lakes and paddleboarding and it has held up great with no discoloration, tears, or any damage of any kind. Most things that I have put on my golden retriever for the first time he is typically hesitant or slow to adjust to, but with this life vest he immediately ran into the water like nothing was even on him. I have confidence in this floatation vest that my dog can swim for hours and be comfortable doing it while being worry free he is staying afloat when he starts getting tired when we are in the middle of a lake. Quality product overall.

Perfect Vest for Paddling Adventures

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I took my rescue pup on her first SUP session and had no idea how she would be on the board. I was glad to have the this dog floatation vest to keep her safe no matter what happened. Overall I was very happy with the vest, and outlined a few pros + cons below from my initial impressions: PROS + high-quality durable material - confident it’ll last a long time! + easy on/off with Velcro straps + top handle to quickly grab your pup - came in handy for repositioning on the board CONS(iderations - nothing negative but to keep in mind) - sizing was a little confusing - my pup's neck measurement put her in the L/XL range according to the sizing chart, but I’d recommend going for the smaller size as the XL ended up being a tad big for her - harness clip for leash is ideal - but I didn’t have quite the same control over my pup as a traditional harness

We love it

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My senior dog loves the water but his recent episode of "vestibular disease" has left him off-balance with a head tilt and tendency to drift to his right. This vest allowed him to continue to enjoy swimming--great flotation--we were able to adjust it to fit him comfortably--it's secure as well as flexible--and the sturdy handle allows us to guide him in the water and keep him stable on the shore.

Ripped during first use

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

The vest fit perfectly on my lab and worked great at first, however the neck seam came apart after only 2 hours. Seaming is crappy.
