TurtleSkin® Snake Armor Orange Dog Vest -- Regular Chest
The black and white dog in the photos is 55 lbs, the vest fit her with adjustment room to spare on either side.
This vest was designed to honor our American disabled service veterans. It is made from the same high quality materials that we use in all our working dog vests. It has been designed in a red, white, and blue color scheme like our American flag colors. The top back portion of the vest has five embroidered stars on it. This vest has a standing tubular handle, swivel snap for an ID and both the chest and girth straps are adjustable. The vest is lined and bound in reflective webbing for an added safety feature. There are three black metal D-rings on the vest, one to attach your leash and there are an additional two D-rings if you use a pulling lead or a bridge handle with your working dog.
Patches stand out highly visible against the red or white areas of this vest. The vest comes with two free patches of your choice.
Anyone can purchase this vest for their working dogs, therapy dogs, service dogs, S&R dogs, etc.
Four-legged friends range from tiny Pomeranians to massive Mastiffs, so it's important to choose service dog vests and in the proper size. Fido will feel his best in a vest that fits securely, and options for larger breeds ensure there's no uncomfortable tightness or pinching to keep your pet from enjoying time outside. This is especially important for vests, which often feature elastic straps and mobility-enhancing bartacks to provide security at home or on the hunt.
Mesh vests – great for dogs outdoors in warm weather
A vest will help your dog to look like the professional he or she is!
A service dog is individually trained to perform task(s) for his/her specific needs. All breeds and sizes of dogs are accepted as service animals. ADA law does not state requirements but many service dogs are commonly identified by wearing a service dog vest, leash cover, or tags, letting the public know that it is a service dog. Doing such makes it easier on the handler in public, lessening the inconvenience and explanation of their service animal. Some businesses, such as airlines, prefer to see an identification card or vest that indicates the dog is indeed a service dog.Therapy dogs are commonly privately owned and tend to visit facilities on a regular basis. Since therapy dogs are not covered under any specific federal laws, permission would have to be given from each place that a therapy dog is to be taken. Many places welcome therapy dogs if the dog is trained and obedient, does not pose a threat to others, can benefit those present at the facility, and does not adversely affect the facility's operations. A vest, leash cover, or tag can help identify a therapy dog.Any dog can be an emotional support dog and does not have to be professionally trained although obedience training is highly recommended. They are often identified by wearing an emotional support vest, leash cover, or tags identifying the dog as an emotional support dog. Emotional support dogs do not have public access rights but are allowed to fly with their owners and qualify for no-pet housing. Some businesses, such as airlines, require seeing an identification card or vest indicating that the dog is an emotional support dog.It's striking how many people are gaming the system that is designed to help the truly disabled who need their dogs to help them negotiate the world. An entire online marketplace has developed to sell vests, service pet IDs and more. Scammers often use them to take their dogs with them to places where plain old pets aren't welcome.
