It IS a life vest and works

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cat with 2 dogs and no cars. from Florida on Tuesday, August 16, 2016
I bought 2 large ones for 2 dogs that don't swim. Both dogs are greyhounds and nothing fits them well because of their slightly (OK greatly) odd figures. These vests adjust well and fit both girls perfectly. When I'm out by the pool, which is completely screened in, I make them wear the vests in case they fall in. If I can get them to let go of the side of the pool, the vest keeps them boy ant while they "swim" to the pool steps. Those very long, and very skinny legs aren't much use for swimming so wearing a life vest is very important.

I can see how these vests are important for any dog near water. Dogs instinctively know how to swim but if they're fighting choppy water or if they tire out during a long swim, a life vest could save their lives. Dogs that sink like pugs really need these.

I feel so much more at ease that should one of them fall in, especially when the water is cold, I won't have to jump in fully clothed to help them swim.
