      We bought the XXS for our 5kg Jack Russell and she loved it. It was a huge help to her at the lake and during our kayaking trips.

      They were to big. I measured my dogs as it said to. I ordered the size according to their measurements and they were to big. So I returned them.

      Worked great, great fit, this vest held her head out of the water. We had purchased one for our other dog last summer and it was a life saver.

      The float vest is amazingly durable! I wish all products were made with such craftsmanship. The float coat did what it was purchased for, and the handle was awesome in assisting our Betty out of the water. Thank you Ruffwear for making such a great product.

      Ruffwear Float Coat. Vizsla happy with her new Float Coat.
      Nice construction with what seems to be very durable material. Easy to put on, and she seems very comfortable swimming in it. Love the oversized handle for assisting her to get out. And more importantly to her, it is very stylish! 🙂

      This float coat is great for our two Goldies. They fit well & the dogs swam comfortably in them. They are very durable. We are glad they have a place to hook on the leashes as we used them while at the lake too! Very happy with our purchase!

      This product is amazing. We own a boat and have a French bulldog . We took him on the boat for the first time with your life vest, and he decided to jump in for the very first time. He floated so well and all we saw was your life vest and his head just bopping along the water. We are very grateful for your product. It is a quality product and I will recommend this to everyone who owns a poochie.

      The straps are very adjustable so I was able to get a great, snug fit on my deep chested boxer. It literally saved her life once already. Would highly recommend.

      My puppies swim and play in their float coats without rubbing or chaffing. Despite being excellent little swimmers it makes me so much more comfortable to know they are protected and I can get them out of the water easily.

      Ruffwear Float Coat. My dog is comfortable in it, the size is correct to the measurements, and the straps hold their settings when using the jacket to help pull my dog out of the water onto the boat.

      Ruffwear Float Coat. I have it for my two dogs. One of them needs swim therapy on a regular basis . The jacket goes around the belly as well and supports their weight in the water. Better than just straps which seem uncomfortable.

      This is the best swim vest for dogs. The handle on top made it easy for me to help in her early days in the pool. It’s great looking and easy to adjust to the perfect size.

      The float coat was great. I’m not the strongest swimmer I felt safe knowing I could pull her back in if she went out too far. Was super comfy and still able to run and move about with no restrictions.

      It’s well constructed, with every detail thought through. It fits her nicely and does the job of keeping her afloat. She knows it’s time to go swim when she’s getting it on, and races with glee to jump in the water with a big splash. Thank you!

      Ruffwear Float Coat. Very happy with the strength of the stitching. The top grab handle fabric and stitching is super strong. Best attention to detail in a float jacket I have seen. Make one for us. Just pick a colour and buy it. You will not find better anywhere. Excellent service too.

      Love the ruffwear float coat!
      We have had about 3 different vests and this is by far my favourite. It’s so easy to lift our pooch out of the water, the handle is in the perfect position and is so sturdy. I love that the straps are tucked as well. It’s so well built.

      This is my second Float Coat. The Float Coat’s quality speaks volumes. It’s a very comfortable fit for my golden retriever. If you measure your dog properly, the fit should be perfect. It is fitted but not too snug, and is minimal bulk so that my dog can swim freely and happily. As I have always known, you get what you pay for with Ruffwear!

      The Ruffwear life vest is well made and the body is very substantial with amazing buoyancy. The clever straps not only provide added safety but also allowed the vest to be adjustable thus more fitted to my dog’s shape. There is a strong handle on top which makes it easy to lift the dog without worry that the handle will break. The orange colour is fantastic it is highly visible. It is expensive, but will last forever and well worth every cent when it comes to my dog’s safety.

      I absolutely adore her new life jacket, it fits perfectly and she seems comfortable wearing it. It also folds nicely to fit in my bag I don’t even mind taking it everywhere because it’s so easy and lightweight. I really like that it has a spot for a safety light, too! That’s next on my list when I can.
