Great product

Got this for my Pitbull. She actually seems to not mind having it on. The jacket floats her well, and fits almost perfect. She's hard to fit, being big in the chest and small in the waist. Product is made well, and should last several seasons. Just keep an eye on your dog, reference overheating. This or any life jacket will cause a dog to overheat faster.

Float Coat works and fits great

My dog is oddly shaped (large chest, short body) and I followed the the Float Coat sizing instructions and it fits her perfectly. We use the Float Coat while paddle boarding and it has worked great for both of us: it gives her good floatation and it gives me an easily grasped handle that I use to bring back up on the board. I’d definitely buy it again.
