Float Coats for my Crew

Just purchased four of these for my pack of 4 Bostons. They are so easy to fit on each dog and will be great when we take them out fishing with us. Beautifully constructed and I'm certain they will last a long time. All of our dogs were comfortable wearing them which has not always been the case with less expensive life vests. Kudos!

Float Coat Quality

I am so impressed with the quality of the Float Coat. I will be kayaking with my best friend this spring and will feel he is safe around the water. Thank you for your excellent product.

People loved it; dog not sure

We all loved it. Fit well, easy to adjust, feels durable. Dog not sure why we were dressing him up. Gave us big puppy eyes, especially during the how easy is it to lift him portion of the demo. Good dog got extra treats. Sure he will give it two paws up down the line.

I have 3, need more!

I have a senior english bulldog who, strangely enough, loves to swim for hours. I feel better having her in this because I know she’s going to tire herself out one day. She’s a big girl and the large fits great on her at the tightest setting. She probably could have went to the medium. I also got 2 for my catahoulas.
