Size Chart

How To Measure Your Dog

Don't guess!. To get a proper fit you must measure your dog's girth and then choose the corresponding vest size. To get an accurate measurement be sure the dog is standing not sitting. To take the girth measurement use a fabric measuring tape. Do not use a metal measuring tape as it will not provide an accurate measurement. Measure your dog around the rib cage behind the front legs at the deepest part of the chest while your dog is standing. If you don't have a fabric or soft tape measure, then use a piece of string or cord and wrap completely around your dog's girth and mark where the ends meet. Take that string and place it on top of a ruler, metal tape, or yardstick to get your dog's chest measurement. If your dog falls in between sizes order the size higher

Our vests are designed to be comfortable when worn all day. Made from a single layer of durable, breathable nylon fabric, the vest has two straps, one that goes around the front of your dog's chest and one that attaches around the belly with a heavy duty quick-release snap-buckle. The buckles are kept to one side of the vest for easy clasping and for the comfort of your dog when laying down. The length of the front and rear straps are adjustable.



Customer Reviews

Awesome Review by Sandi
I purchased 3 vests for my certified therapy dogs. They are very readable & clearly mark my dogs as therapy dogs. I no longer get oh look they brought her dogs into the nursing home why can’t I bring my dogs. I don’t have to explain to people that my dogs are therapy dogs. The vest says it all. We are treated with respect now that we are clearly marked. Wish I had done this 30 years ago. Thank you so much (Posted on 2/14/2018)
Exactly what was advertised Review by Kathy
We purchased a vest from Therapy Dog Vest for our recently certified Schnoodle. It was exactly what we ordered, and I couldn’t believe how quickly it was prepped and delivered. It is lovely - the embroidery is very professional and easy to read, The side reflectors are great in dim rooms as she is a small, black dog, and she is sometimes difficult to see in the dimmed lights of a care facility. Our only issue is that the straps are a little long (we ordered ‘up’ as she was between sizes), but we have contacted the company to see what suggestions they have for us. Would definitely order again if needed. (Posted on 2/13/2018)
Great comfortable vest Review by Helen V
My dog loves wearing this light weight vest. He never gets hot in it as he did with the heavy canvas vests. Well made and a good deal. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
Excellent fit and quality Review by Sheri & Pup Pup

Therapy Dog Vest - Beautiful Review by Laurel
I was very pleased with the Therapy Dog vest that we purchased. I love the fabric - no fur sticking to that! Martha has not yet begun her adventure into therapy dog visits, but they will be coming soon. Lots of process to go through to get us into the local hospital. (Posted on 12/10/2017)
Dexter Loves His Therapy Dog Vest Review by Anne
The Heart & Paw Therapy Dog vest came very quickly and was exactly what I wanted for my dog to begin his Therapy Dog Career. It was easy to order the correct size using the guidelines provided and it fit perfectly. My dog is a 37 lb Medium Goldendoodle and I ordered a Medium Vest. You have many options to customize it for your needs. It is made with high quality rip stop nylon and sturdy straps with plastic parachute buckles to make any adjustments needed. Dexter feels so special when he puts it on to go to "work". (Posted on 12/10/2017)

Exceeded my Expectations Review by Alisann
First it arrived so quickly! I was very happy with the vest and the personalization. Great product. Lightweight for our Arizona weather and would recommend. (Posted on 7/31/2017)
Great item, wrong size Review by Matthew
Very nice and we'll made vests, but too big for my chihuahuas. Customized them with their names, so I can't return to exchange for smallest Tiny Therapy Vests. Oh well, I would still recommend these vests to anyone seeking a vest for their service and/or therapy dog (s).

***Reply From Therapydogvest***

Matthew Sorry to hear the vest did not fit. Although personalized vests can not be returned for exchange we can usually adjust the straps for a better fit at no charge. Thank You
