 We have designed our Butterfly Dual Pocket Cape for those dogs who need to transport a few objects that do not require the larger backpack or saddlebag vest.  The Butterfly Dual Pocket Cape is lightweight, simple and very functional.  The pockets do not expand like the saddlebag or backpack vest; yet, they are wide enough to fit a checkbook size wallet, sunglasses, keys, pill bottles, identification papers, etc. in them.  Since the vest has a wide pocket design, we have placed two girth straps on the Butterfly Dual Pocket Cape to keep it in place while the dog is moving.  Both girth and chest straps are adjustable.

The Butterfly Dual Pocket Cape has two, heavy duty D-rings on the top that are stitched completely through the vest, so you can use a Neoprene Handle (product #7075546) with the vest. The D-rings can also be used for attaching a leash or ID tags.

Each side of the Butterfly Dual Pocket Cape has a zipper pocket with a solid, heavy duty zipper and a large zipper pull for easy gripping when opening the pockets. Each pocket also has a strip of reflective web for night safety.

The vest comes with 2 standard patches and is available in 13 different colors

Zipper Pocket Sizes:
Large: 6.5" at opening, 5.5" deep, diagonal 9"
Medium: 6.5" at opening, 5" deep, diagonal 8"
Small: 6.5" at opening, 3.5" deep, diagonal 7.5"

This vest is only available with 2 patches sewn on. If you purchase additional patches and they will be sent loose.

Love this vest
My Service dog and I have been working together for 4yrs we have order many vests for different occasions and have 2 that he wears depending on the weather all the time. One finally wrote out after 2 or so years of having it. It was a butterfly as well and I can only say that active dogs quality continues to improve over time and with how much they listen to the teams that purchase gear from them. I won’t go anywhere else for our SD needs.

Really really happy with this purchase. The previous vest I got was good but the chest girth was very small. I have a collie so he’s narrow but has a fairly broad chest and the medium just didn’t fit well. However I ordered a medium here and it was perfect. Fits him wonderfully. Good material and fast shipping too. As always, very impressed.

Great Product for Guide Dog
The Butterfly Dual Cape Vest is an essential item for Wilbur a vision guide dog. The vest enables for Wilbur to be easily seen in tight or crowded situations. It enable us to secure Wilbur in the back of our SUV. Finally, enables to keep in the pockets a few important items when Wilbur is out on the Job. The "SERVICE DOG" patches remind the public that Wilbur is not a pet, and thus has access to shopping centres, restaurants, public transport etc. A truly great product.

Our NEW Fav Product
I'm so glad to have received your sales flyer on the NEW size offering, M 😃. Judah, is a medium-sized dog and having the buckle straps in a double-coated breed means NO tangled fur! I love the hole in the side for poop bags a great extra feature. Pockets hold ALL the essentials, keys, phone, ID cards, plane tickets (when needed), extra leash you name it.

It's a great alternative to a backpack, for those dogs who don't need to carry a ton of stuff all the time. I'm sure he could easily carry a backpack, but he's not a large dog.

Great Vest - Need More Sizes
We have a nonprofit organization that trains PTSD service dogs. We use this vest for all of our pups and love the durable quality of the material. However, I do agree there needs to be more sizes - even just a medium would help. During the middle growth stages, our labs look like they are either wearing a tube top or clothes that are 2 sizes to big.

Perfect!
The vest seems durable and like it could truly handle the daily wear and tear. For some reason I thought the vest would be a bit larger, so the pockets would be a bit larger BUT it is not really a draw back. It fits my puppy quite well although I am sure he will grow out of it quick and unless I need more storage room I would definitely replace with this same vest. Patches were sewn on neatly as well.

Best Vest I've Found So Far
I've tried out many of the "popular" service dog vests available, and this one is by far the best one I've found.

The cape vest I received from the organization got ruined a few months ago and I've been trying to find one that I like that much ever since, but the other vests we tried were very bulky or weren't well made. This vest fits my golden almost perfectly in size, and the material is lightweight enough to mold snugly to Bailey's frame without looking bulky (which I hated in the other vests we tried) and seems durable enough to hold up to plenty of wear and tear. I also love that the pockets are big enough to comfortably fit my phone, keys, and thin wallet.

The only thing I really didn't like was the "activedogs.com" patch on the side of the vest. I have an invisible disability, and the first week I used the vest I got questioned twice about the legitimacy of my SD because people assumed that I was perfectly healthy and had bought this vest online so I could pass my pet off as a SD. I also had one person literally write down the web address and then say, "I didn't know I could order a vest online! I'll have to order one for my lab...he's just wonderful. He's not a service dog, but he's so good that no one will know the difference!" After that incident I had my mom get the patch off (which was do-able with minimal damage to the trim) but I really wish the patch was never there to begin with.

great product but needs more sizes, do not iron
I own many of these however do not iron on patches it will melt the trim and the patch doesn't stick. I tried to avoid the trim and the patch still didn't stick and I ended up with partially melted trim on a brand new vest and still ended up hand sewing them on. So it shouldn't even be suggested to iron them on because the trim cannot handle the temperature required to iron on patches without melting. Also I ended up having to make all my vest more adjustible so they will fit the dogs as there is no medium to fit dogs between the sizes. Otherwise I love this vest because it is so versatile and lightweight.

Great vest
I LOVE this vest! It is roomy and looks great on my service dog. It is easy to get my hand in and when I attached a cord to the zippers easy to open (even when my hand trembles). The rings on both the front and back allow a handle to be attached which is very useful. It is also light enough that it doesn't over heat my SD. The only con of this vest is the straps that go under the belly are a little thin, but manageable.

Should have gone with the Large
Bought a medium for a 66 lb golden retriever with a 30" inch chest girth according to the chart. Looks small on her. Unreturnable because I requested the reflective strip and grommet hole be left off. She is a registered therapy dog and I bought the vest in one of the new colors, hot pink primarily to display her patches while working at the hospital. It's a light weight vest, probably not the best choice for a dog that is a heavy puller on the leash, but very good for a calm service or therapy dog. Like some other reviewers, I asked for the company's .com address not be sewn onto the trim, and that request was denied. Pulled out the magnifying glass and scissors and it came right off without any damage. Sorry, she's a pediatric therapy dog, not a billboard. Customer service here is excellent, and shipping was fast.

Great vest
Vest is well made, holds up and washes well. Large size easily fits a wallet, and I was delighted to find that my 6" eReader also fits in a pocket (for long days at the hospital). The small size definitely does NOT fit a wallet, so bear that in mind when choosing a size. The pocket itself is large enough for my wallet, but the zipper opening is not. Large size is a little narrow across chest for my muscular 65 lb Airedale, though it's workable. Just bought the small for my 6 mo. old puppy-in-training, and it fits perfectly. It might be better if the large were slightly larger, with a medium size (that carries a wallet) in between. Overall, a great value!

This is the best vest out there. I love the dual straps for no slip and pockets for little things. The small fit my SDiT and when it got to small for her to wear I bought the large. BUT the large is TOO large and doesnt' fit. Is there a way you can make a Medium. Say a 25 through 32 size. The back strap on the large would have to be cut to 3 in to fit her. Please let us know if you can make a medium of this vest, its your best seller.

the dog likes it
I like this vest, particularly the neoprine handle which really helps to steady me and give me more control. I was hoping for something sleek but serviceable. Unfortunately the pockets won't hold a small wallet so you have to take out everything you need and put it in one thing at a time. Looks like I will have to buy another with bigger pockets. All you can really carry is cash and a credit card; keys maybe. I wanted my dog to carry a few things to take the pressure off my neck and shoulders that a purse adds. I hate the bulky look of panniers, which I already have. I keep hoping to find something that is not bulky but practical. These pockets are barely worth it. I wish there was an option to add on some additional pockets like one of the other vests. That was a GREAT idea!
