Outward Hound Pet Saver Dog Life Jacket Review

Have you seen the Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket sold by Kyjen? It’s a really extraordinary product and is definitely in the top selling dog life jackets. It’s very high quality, and has several features you’ll love.

The Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket from Kyjen generally fits dogs of any age, and almost any weight. There are sizes fitting dogs that are 1 to 90+ lbs. Most dog life jackets have an easy grab handle, bright colors, and are made with waterproof materials (obviously!). This one from Outward Hound fits all of those needs.

For a Golden Retriever (girth measurement around rib cage of 29″) you’ll want to order the extra-large life jacket. Many people who have ordered the large size end up having to return it. But, this is often due to the strap lengths, and not the velcro straps.

There’s a little design flaw, not major, but worth noting: The front strap is shorter than the back strap. You can see this in photos and other customer reviews. Newer versions may have fixed this design flaw. The front strap needs to be longer. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to do that, but if you purchase more strap material you can fit on a strap extension yourself.

Most dogs are not great swimmers. Whether it’s around the pool, at the lake, or on a boat, a life jacket can be a great safety tool. The Outward Hound dog life jacket comes in a few colors including pink and yellow.

For sizing:

  • XX-Small: Dogs with a girth of 6-10 inches and weighing 1-5 pounds
  • X-Small: Girth of 11-15 inches, and a weight of 5-10 pounds
  • Small: For dogs with 16-20 inch girth, and weighing 10-20 pounds
  • Medium: Girth of 21-27 inches, and weight of 20-40 pounds
  • Large: Girth of 27-32 inches, with weight of 40-65 pounds
  • X-Large: Dogs with a girth of 31-42 inches and weighing 70-90 pounds

If you need sizing help, I suggest checking Amazon reviews, or YouTube reviews.

Features of the Outward Hound Life Jacket:

  • It has a really awesome grab handle which makes it easy to grab your dog and pull them out of the water. Don’t discount the necessity for a good handle! You’ll want it when you need to pull a 50 pound wet Labrador retriever out of the water!
  • The straps and quick release buckles are all super-adjustable. What this means is you can get a snug fit with almost any size dog.
  • The front float assists with keeping the dogs head above water, so you don’t need to worry about the life vest sliding back or too far forward.

I highly recommend the Outward Hound product. Feel free to leave a comment here with any questions you might have about the product.

Pink Dog Life Vest

Want to ensure your dogs safety in style with a beautiful pink dog life vest. Check out some of these adorable doggy life jackets that you can get for your pup.

Larger dogs can swim for longer periods than some smaller dogs but can still get tired if left in the water without a life vest or some form of pet flotation device.

I find that any animal small or large can benefit from having a life jacket when being close to any large body of water. Even if they aren’t going to be out on a boat it is a good idea to be cautious as you never know what could happen.

Boating with Pets

Whether your on a sailboat, a fishing boat or just a small canoe or kayak. If you want to bring mans best friend with you for the trip. Then you need to make sure that your little pup is suited up and ready to face the days adventures with you.

Sailing with Pets

It is rare that an animal would ever fall off a sailboat or jump overboard but you know some animals can be weird at times and it is best to keep a safety vest on your pet when out on the water.

If your planning to go out in a canoe with your pet you need to be sure to bring your dog life jacket. Often times people think that because they have been to the same stream before.

The truth is that in a canoe a dog could be alarmed by water splashing into the canoe and hitting him and sometimes this can frighten the animal and cause them to jump out of the canoe.

Currents can Kill

One of the scariest things I have ever seen is when a pet is carried off by a streams current. The worst thing about an animal getting caught in a current is that the current can push the animal underwater and carry them down stream never to be seen again.

Fortunately, with a pink dog life vest your dog can have a stylish personal flotation device that will protect them from getting pulled underwater and makes it easy for them to be seen in the water and the handle on the back of the vest will make it easier to rescue your dog from the water.

Caring For Your Pets

Above all we need to make sure that all pets are safe. Our pets need to be eating a balanced diet without eating to much people food. We also need to make sure that if you have an outside pet that they have adequate protection from the elements and when it gets to cold be sure to bring your pets into your home.

We have a duty to protect our animal friends just as they have protected us through leading the blind and protecting owners from harm.
