Product Description

Take your Dog to Water with the EzyDog DFD! 

Does you dog have trouble swimming or just need more confidence in the water? If so, then the EzyDog Flotation Device (DFD) is the ideal solution. The foam inside the DFD has been been strategically placed to keep your dog swimming in an upright position. Many dog life jackets do not actually float and wear over time. With an EzyDog DFD, whether sailing, fishing or just playing on the beach, the DFD will keep your dog safe. 

A Life Jacket Designed for your Dog 

Combining advanced manufacturing techniques and the highest performance materials, the Dog Flotation Device has been designed and extensively tested to give your dog the most ergonomic and snug fit possible. Our unique Ultra-Buoyancy Foam is strategically positioned around the vest to keep your dog in a natural swimming position at all times. Unlike other vests, the DFD does not hinder your dog's natural movement and can be fastened and removed quickly and easily.

Features: 

  • Ergonomic Grab Handle

  • Unique ultra-buoyancy foam ensures that your dog will always float

  • Padded chest straps

  • Super Strong Nylon D-Ring to transport and secure your dog when required

  • Stainless steel D-Ring - won't rust!

Size Guide

For best fit, measure the girth and length of the dog. The girth being the area behind the front legs and around the body and the length being the area from the neck to the base of his/her tail Girth will take priority when selecting a size. The DFD does not need to cover your dog’s entire back length to be effective.

For Dogs under 7kg, check out our Micro DFD!

Size Weight (kg) Girth (cm) Length (cm)
XS 7-11 48-81 25-33
S 9-20 53-89 33-41
M 18-27 64-99 38-50
L 27-41 69-112 43-61
XL 41+ 76-122 51-66

Fitting Instructions

1. LOOSEN NECK STRAP & UNCLIP ALL 3 BUCKLES.
2. PLACE THE DFD™ ON THE DOG’S BACK AND CONNECT THE NECK CLIP.
3. POSITION DFD FOR THE GREATEST BACK COVERAGE, THEN CLIP THE TWO CHEST STRAPS. ADJUST THESE STRAPS EVENLY FOR A SNUG FIT.
4. ADJUST THE NECK STRAP FOR SLIGHTLY LOOSE FIT (CHEST STRAPS WILL KEEP THE DFD™ IN PLACE).


TIP:THE FLOTATION PORTION OF THE NECK STRAP DOES NOT NEED TO COVER YOUR DOGS ENTIRE NECK – THEY WILL RECEIVE SUFFICIENT FLOAT FROM THE BACK PORTION OF THE DFD™


IMPORTANT: DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN STRAPS! WHEN FITTED CORRECTLY, DFD™ SHOULD BE SNUG, BUT TWO FINGERS SHOULD EASILY RUN BETWEEN STRAPS & DOG.

FANTASTIC

"Having been invited to spend the day on a friends boat and worried that our Lhasa Apso would jump off the boat after Swans. I was struggling to find a Dog Life jacket/Flotation Device for my Lhasa Apso bitch, as all the one's in the local pet shops were far too big and I was running out of time. I came across this web site via Google and ordered the MXS size which has arrived just a few minutes ago, it fits her perfectly. I am so so thrilled. Easy to fit and adjust and she's cool about wearing it. Mega fast delivery and great info on sizing."

Works perfectly

"I have been trying to teach my standard poodle to swim! Being a bright dog he knows that the beach gradient is such that if he wants reassurance he just has to put down his back legs to touch the ground. This does not work once he is out of his depth. He goes straight down with the waters closing over his nose and we have had several near drowning experiences when I have had to rescue him. Now, with the DFD he leaps in and swims well and strongly. Easy to fit and seems not to inhibit his movements at all. Once we have developed further confidence I shall try naked swimming again but for the time being this device is perfect."

Highland Hydrotherapy gives full marks.

"Here at Highland Hydrotherapy in the northeast of Scotland, we use the ezydog DFD's every day. They are quick and easy to fit, and provide just the right amount of buoyancy that we require for hydrotherapy treatment. Very durable and last for years, even with everyday use. When fitted correctly the dogs swim straight and balanced with no rolling. Handy clip point for attaching lead or tether on the back."

good product, great service

"The life jacket is of excellent quality. I looked long and hard for lifejackets for my two greyhounds and decided on these because of other reviews regarding the adjustment of sizes. Greyhounds are difficult to fit things to as they have large chests and tiny waists but the adjustment on the lifejacket meant they fit quite well. The only negative was the lifejackets are flat on arrival and took some bending to make them fit better. Both dogs were happy to wear them. I can't comment on the buoyancy as fortunately the dogs didn't jump off the boat. The delivery time was very good too. "

Good fit for odd shaped dog!

"I have a collie cross who is very long in the body compared to her girth size and after much internet research I decided that this would be the most adjustable buoyancy aid. The fit is reasonably good and although she hated wearing it at first she is now quite happy in it. It seems very well made and looks as if it would do the job, but I haven't yet thrown the dog overboard to test the theory!"

Good fit

"We bought this for our Jack Russell, after we tried a few other makes. This was by far the best fit. The straps allow a lot of adjustability and unlike other life jackets that we tried he seemed happy wearing this one as it didn't restrict his movement."

Perfect for dog confidence in water

"We bought this product for our Dobermann, age 2 1/2 years, so that she could benefit from swimming in the pool, following TPLO surgery. Fortunately, she learned to love the pool water last year, but she never could master swimming horizontally in the water. This DFD gives us confidence, as well as her, and we all love it. She can swim, use her legs, and have a good, safe experience. Only thought is that we would have liked a more substantial loop on the top, as she is a powerful dog. Otherwise, the DFD is well-designed and a quality product. We love it!

I will tell all my friends

"Thank you so much for the very prompt delivery of my dog lifejacket, harness and collar. I was so surprised and delighted when it arrived today as I only ordered it yesterday late afternoon. The products are fantastic and very well made - he'll be the most stylish dog on the canal! What an excellent service - I will tell all of my friends about you. Sue M on holiday

Your lifejackets are wonderful

".......your life jackets are wonderful. Less bulky than other manufacturers and I had many people come and ask me where to get them this summer in Cornwall. They thought they were a great idea. Our dogs love swimming at the beach on holiday so they give us peace of mind while out in the water. Since buying your life jackets I have now changed all of our dogs collars to your brand as they dry so quickly and are more comfortable.
