For larger dogs, like German Shepherds or St. Bernards we suggest the X-Large size. If your dog is 100 lbs or more we’ve heard good reports that the X-Large size works for them.


If you have an English Cocker Spaniel, we suggest the Medium size.

For smaller dogs, such as a 16 pound Miniature Schnauzer, we suggest the Small size. It will fit really good and be a comfortable fit for the dog. Even a 9 pound Chihuahua fits better in a Small size than the X-Small.

Earlier in my review I hinted that this provided a little bit less flotation than other live vests. I should clarify that this is a bona fide (or should I say bona fido) great life vest and will float your dog. It doesn’t have too much flotation under the dog, as it is mostly towards the dogs sides. But, don’t let this sway you as this is a terrific life vest with lots of happy customers.

I’ve owned three dogs in my lifetime: A cockapoo while growing up, a Shar-Pei-Boxer mix, and a schnauzer. I live with my family in Phoenix, and often go sailing at Lake Pleasant, Tempe Town Lake, and the Pacific ocean.
