The Specialty Patches are designed for puppies to senior dogs who are in training or have completed training as working service dogs. These colored specialty patches will be very visible on your dogs' vest, your clothing, or gear bag. We use polyester, high sheen, embroidery threads on all of our embroidery work. Polyester thread is stronger and more resilient than rayon. These are high thread count patches which makes the lettering and designs stand out.
We have backed these patches so they can be ironed on or stitched on.
*Specialty Patches are not available with velcro backing*
**We can sew on purchased patch to an accompanying vest on your order if you request such in comment box, otherwise patches will be sent loose. If patches do not fit in desired location we will ship loose. Please keep in mind sewing specality patches onto a vest does make it a custom item**
Note on Service vs. Therapy Dogs: Service Dogsare dogs that perform a task for their disabled handler. The handler has public access rights with a Service Dog and they are protected under Federal ADA law, and allowed to enter public property with their Service Dog. (Handler must be considered disabled and the dog must perform a task.) Therapy Dogs are dogs that meet the needs of others (such as visiting people in nursing homes, hospitals, pet therapy work, and reading groups, etc.) Handlers do not have ADA public access rights with Therapy Dogs and must have permission from an establishment to enter.
Service Dog Patch It's a great patch (Service Dog in Training rocker) to have on a dog who is still in training. I wish it was a little bigger. Below this patch, I have the Service Dog rocker so it works. I also have the DO NOT Pet patch. It's there but sadly, most people don't read it. Thanks for having some patches in Spanish.

Mrs. Service Dog, Therapy Dog, and Please ask to pet me are quality patches. Must watch placement of patches on Tiny Dog Jackets. Remember the logo strap takes up space. I have used the rocker arm and the rectangle patches. Quality is great!
