We just received our doggy lifevest and it doesn't fit. We measured our dog and purchased an XS and it is not even close to fitting. The dog measured on the small end of the XS chart. The velco barely connects and the straps are too short to buckle. The dog would need to have a 3 inch neck for the vest to fit properly. Since the velcro doesn't fully connect the hooks will cause belly irritation. We will return the product for a refund.

          This is a great life jacket for our Westie. She wore her previous life vest so much that it seemed to be thinning her fur across her back.
          This life jacket is full coverage and prevents her from getting sunburn. I think it is also cooler than the previous vest. She also fell in the water and came right up.

              A:

              These vests are designed to fit by body girth measurements which are listed in the product details. Dog sizes, shapes, etc....vary, which is why the general rule is to go by the measurements that are listed. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact our technical assist line at 1-800-334-6541.

              A:

              You would probably have to get one custom made for a dog of that size. Nothing we carry will support a dog of that weight.

            We have a Boston Terrier that weighs approximately 24 lbs. and measures about 23 girth. I am thinking I need the medium. What is the length of the jacket? Boston's are quite "chesty". I saw this jacket on another Boston but she was more slender and weighed less. Thanks!

              A:

              This will come down to your dog's body girth. When measured around his chest, if the length is 15"-19", go with the XS. If it measures 17"-22", go with a Small.

              A:

              The best thing to do is to also measure the chest/girth of the dog and we should be able to assist you and make sure we get you the proper fitting vest for your dog. If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us here Overton's and any of our representatives will be glad to assist you.
