Cabela's Advanced Dog Flotation Vest

One of our dogs has been a steady fishing companion for me on my yak. Having him in a PFD has made me more comfortable with him on the water with me. I know if/when we go into the water he's something I won't have to worry about right away. He took to wearing the vest quickly and has shown no signs of being rubbed raw in any areas of his body. The adjustable straps, with ample padding under all of the straps seems to reduce or eliminate this potential problem. I looked around for a long time at different flotation vests for dogs before deciding to purchase this one. I am completely happy with my purchase and would recommend this product to anyone looking for a PFD for their best friend.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Comfortable for the dog-does not chaff or rub them raw, easy to put on and take off, durable, vest goes around the entire chest so no straps dig into the belly. padded strap goes from shoulders and around the neck to top of breast bone, easy to adjust, si
Cons:
Male dogs may pee into the underside of the vest as it will cover their bellies. As with any vest covering an animals chest area you would want to keep an eye on over heating in warmer weather.
Owner's reply

I've had the vest for a couple years now. It has been used many more times. The vest has held up great. I have many more years of use ahead. Edward is still with us and has gone off the kayak while wearing it. There is a handle on the top back of the vest that made grabbing him and bringing him back aboard very easy. Still a 5 star after over two years.
