Service Dog in Training Sizing Information
The most important thing you can do to make sure you order the right vest is to measure your dog using these instructions.
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.
Dimensions of the Service Dog in Training Vests for Sale:
Tiny:13-16 inches (Yorkshire Terrier, Silky Terrier, Papillon, Maltese, Toy Poodle, Miniature Chihuahua)

SERVICE DOG IN TRAINING IDENTIFICATION CARD
ID Cards are not required by federal law but can be very useful when going out in public spaces.
With your Service Dog in Training Starter Kit, you will receive one high quality 2-15/16 x 4-1/8 identification card with a hole punch for lanyard or alligator clip. (Lanyard and clips sold separately.)
Our Service Dog in Training ID Cards are customized. We can complete them with you and your dog’s information. Enter in your dog's name, your name, city, state and phone number. Include a photo of your dog as well for a personalized touch. We’d recommend using a headshot style image.
All information, except for the microchip number, is required.
SERVICE DOG DEFINITION & ADA GUIDELINE CARDS
This service dog information card is a simple tool for service dog owners to use when entering a business. These cards were designed to ease the burden of having to remember and relay the federal guidelines that go along with owning a service dog.
With your service dog in training bundle, you will received 25 cards. When folded this service dog card measures 3.5" x 2", the same size as a standard business card. It has two sides with two sets of information. This card is designed to fit easily in the pockets of your new service dog vest.
Service Dog Definition - Side One
On one side of this card, it says "I'm a Service Dog" and indicates what that means. It defines Service Dog as an animal individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities. This side also has a toll free phone number to the U.S. Department of Justice should the business owner have any questions.
ADA Guidelines for Service Dogs - Side Two
On the flip side of the card is a summary of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it relates to Service Dogs. It outlines the questions businesses can ask about a service animal and which questions they can’t ask you.
Please Note: It is fraudulent to represent your dog as a service animal if it is not. Check out our service dog information page for more information.
