I was concerned about fitting a life jacket for my Cardigan Welsh Corgi, since they are full sized dogs on very short legs. But when I got the product, it fit her perfectly. We haven't had a chance to try it near water yet, but she's fine with wearing it on the practice runs in my bed. My only concern is the handle seems a bit hard to maneuver/grasp should she actually go over the side of my little boat (and I have really small hands)Hope it never comes to that...she's fine with slipping her head through the front and the velcro under her seems secure.
Great PFD!! I researched a lot of dog pfd's and this Ruff Wear pfd was priced the best, delivered fast and fits perfect. I ordered an XS as I have a Min Pin mix that's long/lean and 16 lbs. He doesn't mind wearing it at all! Great for our kayak trips! Well made, sturdy back strap, and a comfort fit in the belly area. I am very pleased! Worth the buy!
