Rated 5 out of 5 by beanquilter Great fit for our kayaking dog!
Our 65 lb lab mix has some pointer in her so she has a deep chest and skinny stomach/hips. We tried several different dog flotation devices but never found one that was large enough in the chest (the 1st buckle) and could be adjusted small enough for her stomach (2nd buckle). This one in size large seems to adjust to fit perfectly. Thank you LL Bean for another great product!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PrincetonNJGuy XXS is still too big for small dogs
My dog is 7 pounds and she was easily able to slip out of the XXS size. Not small enough for puppies or small dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debbiebp keeping my pup safe
Only used once so far. Appears to be constructed well. I'm putting it on a puppy right now, so that's a little struggle. Although, I didn't have any problems with the buckles. They do fit snuggly together, but that is what I want so they don't come apart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by InfrequentFlyer Dog Flotation Device
It's a small device for a small dog so some of the complaints I've read are valid. The handle for lifting him is small and the loops that the clips pass through are also small. Still, it does what we want it to do. We have a senior dog that has gone blind and we want him to have some cushion of safety while if we are doing something in the yard or garage and he is outside and wanders into the pool, he won't tire and drown if he doesn't find the steps/sundeck right away or we don't immediately realize.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Melmacwb Fits well
We haven't actually used it yet, which is why it has a ranking of 4. We have a mini Aussie, approximately 25 lbs, and the small size fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CapnEdge Happy and Safe Pooch
Lightweight, comfortable, easy to adjust, fits great. We tried this in the pool and it definitely floated our golden retriever who admittedly had a hard time understanding why you'd want to get in the water and not swim. I think this would definitely help him stay afloat if we were to capsize our boat although he would be low in the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mb5197 Perfect!
This is another terrific product by llbean. My pooch couldn't grasp the concept of swimming, she never kicked her back legs and always sunk, but this helped tremendously. She loved swimming and fetching with this on. Once she had the motions down we took it off and she did great! The handle on the top is a great feature. One down side, straps are not easy to adjust while trying to get this on. Size large fit my 70 lb golden mix.

by 1953SWIMMER Awesome little vest!
My Australian Cattle dog is quite the swimmer & he has worn his vest for 2 seasons now. It fits him like a glove - his little 'turtle shell'. The padded 'collar' and soft fabric on the inside of the belts around his middle all add to the comfort of wearing it during hours in the water. The only negative comment I have is with the belt closest to his shoulders; the loop which the buckle slides through is too small to accommodate it #quality control?#, so I don't even try. The loop closest to the back of the vest is the right size. I like the looks, the features #love that little zip pouch; the leash loop, the reflective tape, & the handle#. Ultimately, I bought it to help keep his head just a bit higher in the water as he swims and plays ball.

by 4DogsHere Great for small dogs, too
I bought the XS and it fits my Pomeranian perfectly. It's easy to adjust, well made, and has that handy grab strap for when he jumps from the paddle board. He seems quite happy in the vest.
The buckles on the XS are quite close to the loop on the top that holds them in place. It will take just an extra moment to buckle because of that - it's not a design flaw, just due to the small size of the vest I ordered.
