Size Chart

How To Measure Your Dog

To ensure a  comfortable fit for your animal you will need to measure your dog's girth. Once you have this measurement you can then order the corresponding size vest. Getting an accurate measurement is vital to getting a good fit so please be sure that the dog is in a standing position to take the measurement. To take the girth measurement use a soft fabric measuring tape. Do not use a metal measuring tape as it will not provide an accurate measurement. For Small dogs measure around the rib cage 2-3 inches behind the front legs. For medium dogs measure 3-4 inches behind the front leg and for large breeds 5-6 inches behind the front legs. 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

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.

* Note:  Size XX-Small vests are only available in our Tiny version vests and Blank vests.



Customer Reviews

Gives us confidence Review by Katie
We have used the vest in a handful of public events, ranging from breweries to busy street fairs. The best part is that we feel confident to enjoy the space and not have to worry about uninvited hands grabbing our pup. So far we have been met with smiles and a few polite questions. The pup also seems quite content in it. We would highly recommend. (Posted on 9/17/2019)
Great purchase for my DINOS Review by Jennifer
I recently purchased a vest for my dog because he is a DINOS. I used a vest before this one, but it ripped and was using a bandanna that wasn't providing enough visibility to the public to give Max space. The vest I purchased is great - fits well, and provides a clear message to give Max space. It still can be frustrating because people just don't understand or don't read the message, but I feel much better having his vest on when we're out. Thank you! (Posted on 7/24/2019)
Free to be in public now! Review by Robin
Thank you! I am so glad you have made this available for my dog.
My dog is rather anxious and I’m afraid of people approaching as I’m uncertain if she would snip. This vest frees us to now go in public as it has the patch “I Need Space” and over the sides says “Do Not Approach” in a well done embroidery in a large font.
Good quality and I recommend. (Posted on 9/20/2018)
Great training vest and wonderful customer service. Review by Beth G.
Training a reactive dog can be a chore but since we got this vest it has definitely helped give Finley some space when I'm out walking him. When I had questions about sizing their customer service was quick to respond and very helpful. So glad I found you ! (Posted on 2/7/2018)
