Available now, you can get it personalized with your dog's name. When you choose this option, we will embroider your dogs name on the fabric (see example photos above) with a beautiful contrasting thread. The finished product is strikingly beautiful, unique and built to last. Please note, all embroidery is done in block letters by default.  If you would like your vest embroidered in a cursive font, please request this in the "Order Comments" section during checkout.

A note about sizing - please make sure to measure your dog's girth, TWICE, for an accurate measurement. To do this, use a SOFT FABRIC measuring tape and measure your dog around the chest just behind the front legs. Make sure your dog is standing up while you are doing this. You can also circle your dog's chest with a leash and then measure the leash where you mark it.

  • service dog vest

    by Kelly Glen

    My dog loves the vest. It's like she doesn't even have it on.
    The only problem I've had with it is the fact it shows the vest with the service dog patches already on it and that is what I thought it was going to have on it. Disappointed that it didn't have it because my dog is a service dog and that is the main reason I bought it. It would be nice to have the one on the photo.

  • Mini Horse Pet Therpy Vest

    by Gina

    I ordered this vest for my mini horse. It fits perfect and looks awesome. I love the handle on the top. It is very well made and I highly recommend it.

  • Best Vest in the West

    by Tricia

    Everything about the vest is perfect. I love the way it is formed across the back, the strong beautiful material. Her name, Lily Irene, in emboidery is awesome. We love it.

  • Excellent Quality

    by Robin in Vermont

    Wonderful craftsmanship and quality fabric. Excellent sales staff too!

  • esa harness

    by Unknown

    My husband and I ordered the harness for our dog. We received it quickly and it was beautiful. It's great quality, fits perfectly and is very comfortable for our dog!

  • Just what I needed!

    by Caroline

    I added a bag to my order it came with an attached patch and it works great for carrying all of my stuff. I wish it had more room for patches but I love it and so does my service dog.

  • Perfect for my service pup in-training!

    by Laura

    I love this vest! It is such high quality and they made it perfectly exactly how I wanted it. "IN TRAINING" on both sides and "AUTISM SERVICE DOG" on the top! It came out just like I imagined it! The purple is so beautiful and royal. Not too flashy which I really like! I wish they had a lighter pink vest because the hot pink is too flashy to me, but the purple will do! I can't wait till my service pup in-training gets older and she can wear her bigger vest! Thanks!

  • Great quality, perfect fit

    by David Padfield

    We bought this for my son's Hearing Ear Dog (a 50-pound Lab mix). The quality of the vest is incredible! The reflective piping on the vest is an added bonus. This vest is very sturdy, but still lightweight. Make sure you buy the backpack for this vest (great for carrying ID papers, bags, and a collapsible water bowl).

  • Excellent Quality.

    by Kordelia

    I am currently rating this with 5 stars, due to the fact I have only been using this vest for the past few days those reading this rating must take that into consideration. I see no reason to believe the quality will lessen in time though as it truly is solidly built. I put a few months worth of research into choosing which gear to upgrade with, I went from a simple cape to this harness once my SDiT graduated into an SD. I went with this one because of it's quality mostly, but I also needed a vest with multiple attachment points. On the downside I am very particular about things looking the same on both sides so I was slightly bothered by the patches being on the left and back rather than the left and right. That's just my personal idiosyncrasy though and in no way diminishes the quality of this product. I did attach a Stop Sign tag to the right side of the vest which solved the problem for me, as it is now serving a functional purpose. I have been told by other SD Handlers that the stop sign seems to be the most effective design for reducing the amount of interaction from the general public. I bought this vest for the sole purpose of introducing my SD to a handle, and it was a bonus for me that the harness itself comes with a handle built on, I have come to appreciate having the small attached handle built onto the harness in addition to the snap-on handle I attached to the two rear attachment points. My SD is trained to slip into his cape on command and I found it very pleasing that this was built so similarly that he did not even hesitate to do the same with this harness. Just slip it over your dog's head and buckle the girth strap. It was very simple to adjust both the chest strap and the girth strap and because this one is constructed solidly there was no need for me to put my dog in a harness and then put on his cape. That makes getting him geared up so much faster, taking his gear back off has become easier as well as I can hold the harness handle while my SD backs out of it so it slips off without any struggle. I have enjoyed this harness so far and although both me and my SD are still transitioning to the new gear, as it is actually quite different to work in than our previous gear, I am glad I purchased this and I recommend it to anyone looking for a solidly built harness which is easy to take on and off. As a side note, I chose to go with black as I heard from some others that the colors were not as vivid as they would have liked and again I am very particular about such things. The black harness is very attractive to me, it is simple yet elegant and it compliments my handle remarkably well.

  • Wonderful vest

    by Kinsey and Alli

    This vest seems very well made and is high quality, my dog likes it and it fits well. Very pleased. Do wish I had known that on the left side there would be a clip for an ID and not a patch, though, or I would have requested a patch there.

    Thank you!

  • You won't be disapointed!!

    by Mrs. Larry Agerton

    This is a wonderfully well made item. Attention to detail is impressive. Arrived lightening fast & my GSD appears to be very comfortable in it. The strong handle makes for an excellent addition as my dog helps me to sit-up/stand.
    Applause, Applause, You have a definite winner in this product!!

  • First time customer, high quality, great service

    by Michael V

    This is my first time purchasing a service vest for my newly trained service dog. Excellent customer service, I was walked step by step through my options/decisions/questions, excellent material/quality of the actual vest,very well made, bright reflecting trim, great value, arrived within the same week of my original order. Suggestion, my dogs girth is 30in. This vest is border lined to big but just the right fit. If I were to do it again, I probably would have went a little smaller then the 30in girth vest for her. Honestly, she may have lost a little weight from all the walking she is doing now.... Hope this helps any new customer, this company is worth it and you get what you pay for.

    All the best

  • awesome

    by sarah

    I purchased 3 of these vests. One for my mom's therapy dog and one for each of my ESA mini horses. All three fit perfectly. They don't slide or sag to one side. And the colors are bold and beautiful!

  • Handle is very helpful

    by Linda

    The handle on this vest is perfect for bracing on steps. It's sturdy and seems comfortable. I wish I had ordered a different color. The purple looked more vibrant on my screen than it does in "person". It's attractive but when I get another I'll get a brighter color.

  • great for the irish

    by pat

  • Great harness

    by Unknown

  • ACU Vest awesome find

    by josh

    Great product wish theu could customize it to made with owners ACU or add same style pockets that are on ACU uniform with velcro so you can put your patches on it other than that great.

    Petjoy says:
    Thanks for the great review, Josh. We can definitely make the vests out of service member's uniforms. We do that by special request and the price difference is minimal.

  • for my needs, it's the BEST

    by Sandy Otto Bryant

    This is my 3rd vest I've ordered and I LOVE it!!! I ordered a hot pink one about 6 yrs ago and a purple one around 3-4 yrs ago. (None of them broke, just wanted a change) For me, this is the best vest out there!! High quality material are used and great workmanship. I've had several ppl stop me in stores asking me where I got the vest and I refer them to your website. Service dog patches are well placed and easily seen by all. Vest is comfortable for my dog to wear for long periods of time. ONE THING...I do wish you carried patches in Spanish that could be added and sewn on by your company (wouldn't mind paying extra for that service either). I didn't see any Spanish patches on the website but if you do carry some, I apologize for missing them. Thank you again for having such high quality service dog supplies!!

    Petjoy Response:
    Thank you for the review, Sandy. Our Classic Harness is certainly what we'd consider our flagship service dog vest.
