Purchased the small DFD for my girl who weighs 14.5kg. The size chart is spot on. Plenty of ways to adjust the vest for optimal fit and comfort, and my pup really seems to like the vest as she objected when I took it off! I ordered the yellow which is nice and bright and should make for good visibility (my dog is pitch black so will be helpful on those night fishing trips!). I haven't tested the actual buoyancy as yet, but based on the other reviews and the robust nature of the vest I think this will be just fine. This is a really well made quality product and I will feel much more comfortable with pup in the boat knowing she is wearing it.
We recently adopted an older staffy who had never been to the beach or in a boat. As it turns out he loves the boat especially sneaking up to the bow to look over the side, but not keen on swimming. So we decided to purchase a Dog Flotation Device (DFD). After much research we chose to purchase the EzyDog DFD after a recommendation from a fellow staffy owner. We purchased the M sized yellow colour & must admit it looks rather smart on our black staffy! The DFD is really well made. It is easy to adjust & fit and in no way stops our staffy from running along the beach or moving around the boat. It has given him a bit more confidence in the water plus assurance for us that if he ends up in 'the drink' that at least he'll float! But a great feature that is so well-worth it, is the sturdy handle & leash clip on the back. So much easier lifting & guiding him in & out of boat! The EzyDog DFD has been a worthwhile purchase.
I use this floatation device for daily swimming with my dog. She has hip displaysia and this device gives her the confidence she needs in the pool. Great quality and easy to put on and take off.
The sizing chart allowed me to buy the DFD that fitted my dog perfectly. It didn't take him long to get used to wearing it and we've tried it out successfully in the local creek. The DFD seems to be well made and of good quality so should last the test of a large cattle dog who loves water but is not too sure of deep water.
Great product. Works well
