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

Great Vest For any Type of Service Dog Review by Katherine
I gave this vest a five star rating because it is the best vest that I have used! This vest was personalized and delivered timely (2 days) in a professional and consistent manner. It is durable and yet light weight for my dog to wear. Other Training vests from other companies were made of heavier material and the patches were easily worn down to the point that the lettering could not be read. The contrast of colors (embroidery versus background color) is great people of all ages can easily read and start to ask questions or talk about the dog in training program. I plan on buying more vest from Therapy Dog Vest in the near future. (Posted on 7/15/2018)
BEST VESTS EVER! Review by wendy
I have two therapy dogs and I ONLY get their vests from Brian at When I was getting my first dog trained, my mentor's dog had a FANCY vest...her name was on it, it was the perfect match of our organization, looked professional, had a super cool strip of reflective tape...AND a spot for the dog's working ID right on the top. So, of course, I had to have one for my dog, too, so we could be in the cool club and look professional. My dog wears the vest 5 days a week at school and we typically get a new, fresh one each year. Brian is ALWAYS available to handle any questions and the vests arrive quickly...and they look ADORABLE (yet professional). We have purchased about 4 or 5 vests from Brian. I get lots of compliments from other therapy pet owners - "Where did you get that vest???" It is easy to put on and off the dog and is also machine washable. It doesn't get better than that. is THE PLACE!!!! Thank you Brian for taking such great care of Rocky and Red! (Posted on 7/7/2018)
Love it! Review by Nick
We recently took our recuse Wallace to Lowe's for some socializing, noise distraction and long down stays. Folks were a little reluctant to approach until they saw the vest and "Please Pet Me" sign.
I fit well and seemed very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Dog vest Review by Jeanne
Love the quality! Love the vest...and my dog loves wearing it!!! Yes! I would buy again! :) (Posted on 5/15/2018)
Very Impressed Review by Sharon
Great vest! Quality materials and beautiful monogramming. And the fastest shipping ever, and it had to ship to Canada. I had it in less than a handful of days.
Grace has tried it on, but is still in training so hasn’t worn it a lot. But can’t wait until she can.
Will definitely be recommending this to the other Therapy dogs in her training class. I know we will get lots of compliments on this vest.
We will be ordering again as we need.
Thank you so much! (Posted on 4/20/2018)
Great vest Review by Ron
This is the second TD In Training vest I have purchased from Therapy Dog Vest. My first therapy dog died. I will include his TD In Training vest in his momento book. When I recovered enough from my loss, I decided to go back to TDV. This time I chose a bright green vest that draws a lot of attention. He is already beginning to associate his vest with "training time". (Posted on 3/20/2018)

My experience. Review by Carl
A quality product and amazing quick delivery! (Posted on 2/16/2018)
Very happy with our new dog vest! Review by Rita S
I ordered this vest after searching on-line for vests for our Mini Australian Shepherd. There were many different sites to choose from but this design looked the best to me - simple clean-cut lines, nothing too cumbersome. Our dog Kali, looks so cute in it, as well. Thank for the the quick service too - we received it within 10 days of ordering! (Posted on 1/27/2018)
so glad I found this company! Review by H. Claire
I have a "coyote" looking German Shepherd that I'm heading towards Therapy work on top of her herding and companionship...Because of her breed-and her sable color-she got a lot of trepidatious eyebrow raising and therefore-it was more difficult to convince people that she truly is a sweety pie!

~The bright green vest sets her lovely color off great and has melted little hearts!
~The vest is well made-not something you would go hiking in the woods with-but for what it is for-it is terrific!
~The embroidery is of great quality, and clearly visible.
~The keepers and webbing are good quality as well as the stitching. (Posted on 1/8/2018)
Excellent Product Review by Diana
I received the product very quickly. Was surprised it arrived so soon since it had the embroidery work done on it. It is a very nice vest. Colorful, nice stitching, and goes on so easily. My Golden has had a lot of compliments on it when he is wearing it. Even his trainer for his Therapy Dog Class likes it. Great value, looks fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone needing one. Much nicer that others I see and I love that you can have your dog's name on it. (Posted on 11/17/2017)

AWESOME! Review by Haley
This vest is a game-changer for people randomly walking up and petting your dog! We added "Ask to Pet" on our vest and it was worth the extra $2! People are courteous of the vest and it's like our dog has a little bubble around her now.

Highly recommend! (Posted on 8/26/2017)
