Product Description

When the thermometer is up our Air-Lite Jr. service dog vest cools things down. This vest is based on our full size Air-Lite and uses the exact same high-quality materials.

This cape style vest starts things off with a single lightweight layer of white industrial-grade nylon mesh. When brand new, this vest feels like it may be a bit stiff, but breaks in within just a couple of days. You can even speed up this period by "working" the vest like a new baseball mitt.  The cross-links will soften up almost immediately, resulting in a vest that is soft and comfortable, yet as tough as iron.

The color of this particular vest is WHITE and that's the only color the Air-Lite comes in (if you want a version of this in a different color, check out our Small Mesh Service Dog Cape). This was certainly not some sort of an accident. We developed this vest when in the great state of Arizona and we did it with good reason. Heat and humidity can be a dangerous challenge for a dog so this vest not only breathes continually, but it also reflects any heat off the vest, resulting in a cape that adds virtually no heat to your dog.

This vest also comes with a patch of your choice sewn on for you before it leaves our Ohio facility. Choose the best patch for your situation from the options dropdown.

Here are a few other great benefits of the Air-Lite Jr.:

  • Reflective trim at front and back of vest for high visibility in low-light or dark times.
  • Available in these sizes: 21"-24" girth, 18"-21" girth, 15"-18" girth and 11"-14" girth. Need help sizing? Check out our vest sizing chart here.
  • Made by us in the USA (Ohio to be exact).
  • Wiredog Lifetime Workmanship Warranty.
  • Fully adjustable front chest strap and adjustable girth strap.
  • Triple-Stitched at all stress points.
If you're looking for a summer/warm climate vest that you don't need to carry things, but more for identification of your dog, the Air-Lite Jr. is perfect.


**Please be aware: This vest is for identification purposes only, it does not include a d-ring and is not intended to be used as a harness.** 


Important Note:  It is illegal to represent your dog as a Service Dog if your dog is indeed not a Service Dog.  Wiredog will NEVER knowingly sell to an individual committing this fraudulent activity.  If you are unsure about what a Service Dog is, please refer to our Service Dog Information page for the definition according to the Federal ADA Act.

  • mesh service dog vest

    by Lynne

    This is a great vest. Light, easy to put on and take off. Our dig loves it!

  • Good summer service vest

    by Rhonda

    Good for summer, should keep Trixie nice and cool. Vest is 100% breathable so air flow will be no problem. We can even spritz Trixie with water with the vest on if need be.

  • Great Company

    by marian

    The customer service was outstanding . I contacted them about the shipping time as I needed the vest quickly. Received a very prompt email back from the shipping manager letting me know that there would be no problem with me receiving it by that date with regular shipping, low and behold item arrived before anticipated...Thank you very much Petjoy! And the vest fit perfectly as described in their measurement chart, it is made of excellent quality and I am very happy with my purchase. I would highly recommend this company and product.

  • nice and light

    by Laurie Donohue

    I love the lightness of it and very well made. I only wish I would have noticed before I purchased that it doesn't come with a hook for a leash, so your dog will have to wear the harness and a collar! That might be an issue for some people like me. Thank you for the fast shipping.

  • True to size

    by Unknown

    Fits perfect, ordered the stop sign patch which I thought would be attached to the vest but it's a charm! So, keep that in mind when ordering the extra patches..... I ordered the small- it's the size of a quarter. The vest is perfect!

  • must try

    by Unknown

    This was a great purchase. I measured my dog, but either I measured incorrectly or the size is bigger than indicated. Rather than hassle with return, I adjusted the strap and cut off the excess. I'm very happy with it.

  • right product, wrong dog!

    by Peteformaz@hotmail

    I thought I ordered a vest for my service dog. Got a vest yesterday that just about fits my daughter' s Frenchie. Wrong dog. My dog is an 85# German Shepherd Dog (GSD). This vest won' t fit over her nose!
    Please send me the appropriately sized vest for my therapy dog. Also send payment requirements, return instructions, etc. I may keep the mini vest & make a mini-nightmare dog.

  • Great customer service

    by Unknown

    I had a problem with my order with the size of one of the patches. I contacted them. Not only did they fix it but they were professional, kind and prompt.
    This kind of customer service is so rare to find these days.
    Thank you!

  • not as useful as we needed

    by sarahjane dooley

    The small vest fits my miniature American Eskie just fine, but there is no D ring on this one so there is no place to hook on a leash or the tag I purchased. I have to use an addition halter for the leash which negates the light quality of the vest. The tag is much to big to wear attached to Pip's collar, so is useless to us.

  • Great! Cool!

    by Daisy Smith

    I have bought may items from Petjoy. I have always found their merchandise of the highest quality. This vest is for my newest Service Dog and it is hard to fit him, but leave it to Petjoy to have something to wear during the HOT summer months. Thanks you Petjoy!

  • Very happy

    by Nancy

    The vest was just as advertised. Very satisfied with the quality.

  • GREAT vest for HOT Weather!!

    by MB - Florida

    This is a great little vest! My dog is a Toy Poodle. I also ordered one for a Yorkie. They fit well. Quality is excellent.

    This company stands behind their products. If there is a problem, they will work to make you happy!!

    by suzanne valiera

    I'm happy with my purchase at pet joy. I got just what I needed for a fair price. I'm sure I'll shop at pet joy in the future. Thank you, I'm a satisfied customer and my dog looks great!

  • I love it

    by amanda

    It fit perfectly! The reson i gave it 4 stars is i wish it had a hole for a harness other than that i love it and am very satisfied with it

  • very nice air lite sevice dog vest

    by Lavinia

    The only thing that I found missing on this vest is the leash ring. It is the prefect vest for here in Florida but I do prefer the vest with that ring so unfortunately I have not been using it. It really would be a much cooler vest for my Sara Jane.

  • Good quality,fits well

    by Unknown

    Seems just fine. Only problem is that there is no place to hook a leash so my dog
    has to be choked by attaching the leash to
    his collar or must wear another harness underneath. This seems weird. Otherwise, great product especially for a furry dog.
