The largest size offered is a double extra-large, which makes it the perfect fit for larger breeds. Follow neck girth and chest girth measurements for the best fit.
The reflective stripes and thick foam are a plus!
Jesse gave it five stars and wrote, "Our bulldog is a bit over 60 pounds (she's got the density of a dying star) and so I ordered the large. Fits almost perfectly with the straps on the tightest setting. Probably could have gotten away with a medium, but it looks great!"
4. SONGWAY Dog Life Jacket, Pet Floatation Life Vest Dog Lifesaver Preserver Swimsuit with Handle for Water Safety at Beach, Pool, Boating
This clownfish-style dog life vest is perfect for Finding Nemo fans. If you're not sure which size is best for your dog, Songway has provided measurements for the chest girth and back length. Your dog will look too cute in his floatation vest!
Emma gave it four stars and wrote, "She's a small size for a cocker spaniel (15 inch back, 23 inch chest and 16 inch neck) and this is a medium. Velcro is strong, as are the clips. The stitching on the fin isn't perfect but I'm okay with that as it's just a cute feature. Fairly good value for money."

Staff note: Look at canine life vests as well as life jackets. Life jackets can be great for pools, but for longer-distance swims, consider a life vest.
