    DFD Life Jacket

    Posted by Megan Lyden on 18th Jun 2022

    As with all the other EzyDog products I've purchased (jackets, SnakPak, backpack) the DFD Life Jacket is durable, extremely well-made, and the perfect fit. Very impressed!

    Dfd life jacket

    Posted by Judy Reece on 15th Sep 2021

    Love this life jacket. Our lab is a great swimmer but after knee surgery we were apprehensive of her crazy love of swimming. This totally allows her to focus on using and exercising her legs with less stress on keeping herself buoyant. It fits her beautifully and looks great. She had no issues adapting to it's use. She's as crazy as ever about swimming. Thank you Ezydog?!

    Not good enough

    Posted by Brent on 12th Aug 2021

    Its not good enough to keep my dogs a float and doesnt keep thier head high enough above the water. EzyDog Says: Hi Brent - We're sorry to hear you're having issues with your life jacket. Typically if one of our DFD's can be fitted on the dog you should be set due to the extra flotation we pack into our life jackets. It may be that some adjustment is needed to suit your dogs. Please contact us so that we can assist, 877-3EZYDOG or

    Great quality, very sturdy and nice. Definitely will trust it to hold up my Irish Setter! I actually tried it on myself. Just what I was looking for!

    Dog life jacket

    Posted by Garison on 17th Jun 2021

    This life vest actually has enough flotation to make the dog float. Others I've tried have only a tiny bit of floatation, which offers only marginal help if any to my yorky who does not want to be in the water. This vest which actually floats her without effort is making her less terrified of the water. I hope she will eventually start enjoying swimming

    DFD is Great

    Posted by Carol R. on 18th May 2021

    Our black lab is a strong swimmer but I don't think many dogs are water wise. The DFD fits him quite well and he was happy to swim with it on. He appeared comfortable and his rear end was noticeably more buoyant with the DFD on. I am impressed with the design and quality of manufacture. I highly recommend it.

    Great water life jacket - Hurray!!

    Posted by Serena Charmian on 21st Sep 2020

    After buying several life jackets for my boy, Loki, I was about to give up and then bought this jacket. It is perfect. Loki is a 81lbs with a unique physique. Deep chested with skinny legs and small feet for a large dog. He was a little nervous when I first put this on. The previous jacket caused abrasions where the straps were, so he was not happy when he saw another jacket about to be put on again. Aside from the abrasions on his shoulder from the rubbing of the previous jacket, He looked as if he was sinking down into the water. He appeared to be struggling to keep his head up as he sank down. He appeared to be having trouble staying afloat and was looking unhappy when I pulled him into the kayak. This jacket is a winner!! He walks right up to have me put it on and can swim much farther with it on. It has more buoyancy and he swims much further than with the others I've tried. And, seems to be far more comfortable wearing it. Thank you EzyDog for you great products and great customer service. There is a reason that I, as well as many people keep coming back for your products. I have bought EzyDog products for at least 10 years. Often using the suggested products you recommended for specific situations for my other dogs over the years. Thank you! Thank you! He loves jumping into the water from my kayak or off the bank, and it keeps him higher in the water when swimming than the others so he has no problem with me putting it on him. He has more energy and is relaxed after our outings, probably because he does not struggle with this jacket and he doesn't have to work so hard

    Great for tripawds

    Posted by Bud on 18th Jul 2020

    This dfd gave the gift of swimming to our three legged dog. She’s 7 and missing a front leg, so we really just got this life jacket to make wading more comfortable for her... but she jumped right in and swims like a champ! It doesn’t balance her forward too much like other life jackets, so she can keep her head up even with only one front paw. Turns out she’s a total water dog, and we go for swims a couple evenings a week now. Total game changer. Also, our dog has a pointy chest, so the strap system really works great. Other jackets have a single panel that goes under the belly, and those just didn’t fit on her. This this should really fit any dog. Thanks Ezydog for helping our pup swim for the first time in 5 years!
