Service Dog 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.
Small: Girth 13"-16"
Use Size A (1" x 2.75") patches
Medium: Girth 17"-21"
Use Size A (1" x 2.75") patches
Large: Girth 22"-29"
Use Size B (1.5" x 4") patches
Extra Large: Girth 30"-38"
Use Size C (2" x 6") patches
Next, our customers have told us that having personalized ID cards help to alleviate confusion so we designed service dog ID cards. These ID cards are not required by law but help to identify your dog as a working service dog.
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.)
Each Service Dog In Training ID Card is made to order with your dog's name, your name, city, state, and phone number. We recommend including a headshot style picture of your dog for a classy (and super cute) touch.
Finally, you need patches for the vest. Embroidered patches have velcro for easy removal and cleaning to help keep the stink away. Three sizes are available to accommodate all dogs big and small.
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 bundle, you will receive 25 cards. 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. 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.
