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.

Outstanding Quality & Speedy Delivery Review by Jill
I love this vest. This isn't my first one but this is definitely my favorite. I ordered the hot pink with pockets and the grommet for the poop bags and it is amazing. I can't wait until she goes to school to show it off to everyone. (Posted on 8/6/2019)
Love this vest! Review by Colleen
This is my second purchase . . . my puppy grew so fast that her first ("therapy dog in training") vest no longer fit. This vest is well made and I love the red with white lettering -- so easy for others to read and we opted for the "please pet me" which has made people more comfortable approaching us when we are out. Thank you!! (Posted on 4/11/2019)

Grateful to be a Therapy Dog Team with Caring K9's Review by Tamela
Thank you for this nice vest. My Dog and I are a Therapy Dog team here on Maui with Caring K9's. We do not wear our team vest unless we are on a visit. We have just passed our Canine Good Citizen Certification and received our Certificate and a Ribbon. We are so proud of the work we share with the community. We have done this for 4 years now. Happy to have such a wonderful job for my dog and share her with the community. Mahalo for this beautiful Vest. Aloha, Bo & Kaila (Posted on 3/24/2019)
Very good vest Review by Kevin
I have several vests for my dogs. This was the best value of any of them. The nylon is very light and the color is bright. I am a big fan of the zippered pockets. It fit the dog great. I have told many members of our Therapy Dog Club (about 300 members) about the value. (Posted on 11/4/2018)
