Breeds which are typically suitable
for each size of dog life jacket

With the potentially huge range of dog sizes within any particular breed it just isn't possible to assemble a table guaranteed to determine which particular size of jacket will suit a particular dog. This page merely attempts to give you an idea of the jacket sizes which will be of most interest to you.

You'll see that there is often a choice of at least two potential jackets. Even where only one jacket is shown as being 'probably' appropriate please don't use this table as any more than a guide. To be sure which jacket is best for your dog it's time to get the measuring tape out and look at the graphic table on the 'Sizing' page.

And I'm sure you don't need reminding that puppies grow!
