DOG LIFE JACKETS and DOG LIFE VESTS

Even if your dog is a strong swimmer, a life jacket for dogs is an important piece of dog safety equipment every owner should have handy. Whether it's from tiring out or getting caught on undergrowth, water activities pose a serious risk for your dog.

A Dog Flotation Device You Can Trust from EzyDog™

Quality is important in any product you use with your furry friend, but with a dog life jacket your pooch's safety and even life could depend on it. All of our dog flotation devices include the following critical features:

  • BRIGHT COLOR - gives extra visibility for water sport and nighttime safety

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I choose a life jacket for my dog?

Here are a few factors to consider:

  • Size: For best fit, measure the girth and length of the dog. Girth will take priority when selecting a size. The girth being the area behind the front legs and around the body. The length being the area from the neck to the base of his/her tail. If your dog is between two sizes, choose the smaller size.
  • Buoyancy: The amount of buoyancy you'll need depends on your dog's weight and swimming abilities. All EzyDog life jackets include additional flotation so you do not need to know the dog’s weight for a proper fit. If it fits, they’ll float!
  • Comfort: Choose one with a comfortable fit. Lifer jackets with padded, adjustable straps are ideal for a customized fit that’s comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement.
  • Visibility: Jackets with bright colors or reflective strips are a good investment in dark light or emergencies.
  • Handles: A life jacket with sturdy handles can make it easier to lift your dog back onto the boat in case of an accident.
Can I use a human life jacket on my dog?
No, dog life jackets are specifically designed with the dog's body shape and swimming needs in mind. Human life jackets may not provide enough buoyancy or support for a dog, or they may not fit properly, which could cause discomfort or even lead to the dog slipping out of the jacket.
Do dogs have to wear life jackets on a boat?

Yes. Even if your dog is a natural swimmer, life jackets are needed. It's important for safety when swimming in deep water or rough currents where your dog may get tired out.

In some places, laws require that all passengers on a boat, including dogs, wear a life jacket at all times. It's important to check the regulations in your local area to see if this applies to you.

If you’ve found yourself asking this question, you’ve come to the right place. EzyDog has been making dog flotation vests for over 2 decades, establishing a benchmark that still remains.
