Service Dog Vest Sizing Instructions

 The most important thing you can do to make sure you order the right vest is to measure your dog using these instructions. If you don't measure, you're taking a chance that you'll have to return it and reorder. Measure your dog once and you'll be done!
Use a soft fabric measuring tape. Measure all the way around the rib cage, full circle. Just like a saddle fits a horse. Your dog must be standing. 

NOTE: If you have a really small dog, the Tiny vest can be altered to fit. Cut a strip out and sew it back together with a sewing machine. This will allow you to go down to a 9 inch girth.

We know you want your Service Dog or Therapy Dog to look professional and neat when you go out. We are pleased to offer you these high quality vests. We know that you and your dog will be pleased. The vest is designed for long lasting wear and comfort for your dog. A reflective strip is on each vest for added nighttime safety. You won't find a better fit for your dog any where. The colors are beautiful and the vest is durable for long service. You can hand wash the vest and hang it to dry. Snaps and zipper pulls are for easy open and close. The vest is often referred to as a service dog cape.
Does each color have a special meaning? 
No. There is no regulation that says your dog has to wear a certain color of service vest or cape. Blue and Red vests are our most popular. We encourage you to pick a few colors that best fits you and your service dog's style. 
What is a Service Dog?
Service Animal Definition The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) defines a service animal as any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. If your animal meets this definition, your animal is considered a service animal under the ADA regardless of whether the animal has been licensed or certified by a state or local government. A service animal is not a pet. If your Service Dog is well behaved, it cannot be excluded from a business. For all the information regarding Service Animals, visit the ADA website. 
What is a Therapy Dog?
A Therapy animal gives its heart to making people feel better. A Therapy Dog gives smiles and hope to people in hospitals and long term nursing care, children who need extra love, to shut-ins, and to anyone who needs the caring only a dog can give. Bless them every one.
It is fraudulent to represent your dog as a service animal if it is not. Here is some important information about service dogs:
Service Dog Definition: Only dogs are recognized as service animals under titles II and III of the ADA. Service Dogs are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support are known as therapy dogs. They do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. This definition does not affect or limit the broader definition of "assistance animal" under the Fair Housing Act or the broader definition of "service animal" under the Air Carrier Access Act. Some State and local laws also define service animal more broadly than the ADA does. Information about such laws can be obtained from the State attorney general's office, or by visiting the ADA website
