    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Rough Terrain My Llewellin Setter was not bothered at all wearing the Cuga Vest. He covered miles of terrain busting through heavy brush. The vest protects very well and is quite lite, which is critical for bird dogs. Very nice product! Simple to put on too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I purchased this vest for my daughter’s dog. She needs a vest to protect his body while running in the woods. The vest’s material is very durable. And the orange color makes it easy to spot him while running on/off trails. I bought one for my dog as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest I purchased a vest for my Australian Shepherd puppy to wear when bringing cattle through the timber and pasture. He is still a puppy weighting around 35lbs now, I ordered a medium and I put it on him and its big on him now (to be expected) , but I am confident it will fit him perfect in the summer when he is 50-60lbs. I feel it fits true to size. It will be great in the coverage of his body, as it goes longer on the back than others i have found. I also like that the velcro is on the top of the back so it shouldn't get matted with leaves and debris. It appears to be a good light vest made out of durable material. I am happy with this purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Dog Vest The Cuga Vest is easy to get on and off; fits securely and protects my Springer when she dives through the brush. The sizing was accurate with the medium fitting the 50 pound dog just right. This vest is a much better buy than the cheaper ones on the market that RIP or the straps tear off after one use.
