Therapydogvest.com is a small, family owned business, established in 2007 and is based in Fort Worth, Texas. Our goal is to provide a high quality product at an affordable price. We pride ourselves on our great customer service and ability to ship orders quickly without compromising on quality. If it's not good enough for our own dogs it's not good enough for our customers!
Our family has always been involved in dog sports such as Agility and competition Obedience and Rally. While at one of these events we were approached by an agent from a pet modeling agency looking for well trained Jack Russells which led to them modeling for print ads and acting in commercials.
After retiring from competitions, all of the experience gained working in so many types of situations made Jake, our Jack Russell Terrier, the perfect choice to become a therapy dog. He is calm, loves people, and was not afraid of the medical equipment and sounds common in a care facility. He had some entertaining tricks that would amuse and bring smiles to those we visited bringing a bit of joy to their day.
When we started, we were told by the various hospitals that we needed an identification vest to prevent any confusion. We looked online to find one and found most vests would take 2-3 weeks to ship and the prices were very high. So what did we do? We started our own business.
Established in 2007, our business started selling vests for therapy dogs. Once up and running, we we found there was also a need with rescue groups and shelters. They had been looking for similar vests, but promoting adoptions. We came up with several designs to help attract people to the dogs when doing events. We even came up an idea to help raise money by offering donation vests. We had many requests to add phone numbers, email or website information on vests and even customize the design to show their logos which started our custom design services.
Over the years we have designed vests for dogs, cats, miniature horses, cows, and even alpacas and pigs! We have made vests for fundraising events as well as product promotional campaigns, like the one we did for Voyce when they attended SXSW in Austin Texas. Our vests have become a wonderful advertising tool for businesses such as Realtors and Insurance agencies to pet walkers, pet sitters and groomers. We have many years of experience working with hospitals, hospices, Universities and working dog groups designing vests for their programs so let us help you put your ideas in motion to design the perfect vest for you or your group!
