Purchased for my bull mastif, doesn't keep dog from sinking. Luckily he's a good swimmer and we purchased a float for him to lay on instead. Looks good on him tho. Does seem to keep him cooler when its wet, and the handle makes it easier to get him in the boat.

    Great fit jacket for the smaller dogs. The under the chin strap was a problem with every other jacket we tried, but this one works without pressure on the neck.

      Comments about Overton's Overtons Dog Life Jacket:

      My dog is 91 pounds and this keeps him safe and afloat when we are swimming from the boat away from shore. He's a Catahoula Leopard Dog and loves the water so there's no keeping him on the boat. The strap makes it easier to haul him back on the boat when he is ready to come in. The belly strap is nice and wide, so the vest straps don't cut into his belly.

        It is easy to put on my dog.
        She is terrified of water but this jacket has given her
        some confidence and she is easier to get in the water. We
        hope some time she will not reject it at all.
        She will swim around now and the handle on top allows any one in the boat to lift her in when she is tired, or at this time just had enough!!

                A:

                Thanks for your question. If you 19 lb dog has a body girth of 17 to 22 inches then I would select the small. If the body girth is 21 to 30" then medium would be a better fit. You can measure the girth around the back and chest, just behind the front legs at the thickest part of the dogs chest.

            • Q:

              I have a rotty that weighs roughly 130 pounds. Do you think the XL is big enough?

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                The fit will depend on the body girth of your rotty. Our largest vest, XL, will fit body girths from 36" to 44". Please measure around your rotty's chest, at the thickest point, and across the back to determine the girth. Thanks

              Will this fit a boxer? We have a medium size female, around 60 lbs.

                A:

                Yes. More than likely you will need to order size Large for your boxer. The large is designed to fit dogs 50 to 90 lbs. with a body girth of 30 to 37 inches measured around the largest part of the chest just behind the front legs.
