Therapy 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.

Therapy Dog Identification Card
Next, our customers have told us that having personalized ID cards help to alleviate confusion so we designed therapy dog ID cards. These ID cards are not required by law but help to identify your dog as a working therapy dog.
With your Therapy Dog 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 Therapy Dog 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.
Therapy Dog Removable Patches
Finally, you need patches for the vest. Embroidered patches have velcro for easy removal and cleaning to help keep the stink away. Two sizes are available to accommodate all dogs big and small.
