Product Description

Simply put, we think the Float-Doggy™ is the best canine flotation product around.

Created by experts in buoyancy and design, the Float-Doggy is the first dog flotation jacket to use variable density, articulated foam and an enclosed, harness-style construction.  One of the key parts of the patent-pending construction and design is that the jacket minimizes pressure around the throat area, evenly balancing your dog's weight for both free movement when the dog is swimming, and comfort and safety when the dog is being lifted. 

People ask us from time to time why dogs need any sort of flotation wear, since, after all, "they can swim."  The answer is that when they're with you, splashing around a small pond or backyard pool that they can get out of on their own and where they can't go much distance, they probably don't.  Dogs are naturally sprint swimmers - they duck in and out of water, fetching and then resting.  However, even the best swimmers - human or canine - will struggle in deep, cold or moving water, when they're tired out but can't exit the water, or anytime they panic or become disoriented.  If a dog is being taken on a real water adventure where they might have to be lifted back into any sort of watercraft (from a boat to a raft), or where they might get into deep or moving water, they need a buoyancy aid that assists their swimming efforts and allows them to be comfortably and efficiently assisted out of the water.

The D-fa Float-Doggy's unique harness-style construction provides balanced flotation, keeps pressure away from the throat while keeping the dog's head above water, and ensures a comfortable and safe lifting position.


  • Variable density, articulated foam places flotation where it's needed
  • Chest yolk insulates and floats the chest area
  • Segmented panels provide for an ergonomic fit and free movement
  • Harness-style construction for safer, more comfortable lifting
  • Rugged Cordura outer construction
  • Double strapping for secure fit for a range of body types
  • Full length lifting handle
  • Seamless belly panel to reduce snag risk


Body weight is the most important measurement in a Float-Doggy™ flotation jacket.  To select the correct size, look for a size that fits a breed matching or similar to your dog, and check against your dog's body weight.  The double strapping construction accommodates broad shoulders, deep chests and narrow waists.
