The Mesh Vest with Handle is done in the same style as our S&R Style Harness Vest and will fit your dog in the same way.  This is a great vest as it has all the same features with the comfort of air breathing mesh fabric.  A great vest for summer and for dogs that need to work in the heat.   The Mesh Vest w/Handle features additional side D-rings for using the bridge handle (sold separately). The shorter attached handle is made from easy grip molded rubber materials.  There is a Hook and Loop closing, clear vinyl pocket for your ID on the side of the vest. The entire Mesh Vest w/Handle is bound in reflective webbing for night safety. On top of the vest, there is a heavy welded D-ring for attaching your leash. The chest strap has a two-way adjustment. The girth strap is adjustable and allows your dog the mobility that it needs to work, run, and jump. Comes in 9 colors, red, blue, black, coyote brown, yellow, pink, aqua, lime, orange.  This vest comes in four sizes.

The vest comes with 2 standard patches of your choice.

Additional patches can also be purchased, no extra charge to have them sewn on for you.

*Actual product can vary as ID windows have been upgraded to new style in 2019 & we are currently working to update photos*

Mesh Vest with handle
I have never seen a dog accessory of this high quality and so well made. I am sure it will last for more than 20 years!
I needed a hanfle, so I got this one instead of the other mesh vest without a handle. But for flying on planes, I might remove the metal rings to avoid additional hassles going through TSA security.

Mesh Vest with Handle and Clear ID Pocket
I originally purchased the Mesh Vest in a large for my 3/4 Standard Poodle/1/4 Golden Retriever. While I was able to adjust down the girth to fit him, the chest strap when adjusted as short as possible, was still too large.
I purchased the medium Mesh Vest, which lists 31" as the maximum girth length, which is the exact measurement of my dog's girth.
The chest was a better fit, but the girth, when adjusted out as far as possible, was very snug.
As he is still growing, I returned the medium, and will continue to use the large. Customer Service was sympathetic and very helpful.
Because he has so much Poodle in him, he must be clipped every 4 weeks. With temperatures above 65, he quickly becomes overheated.
The Mesh Vest allows him to wear his Service Dog uniform, and stay cool.
When ordering, take accurate measurements, and order accordingly.
I would recommend the Mesh Vest. ActiveDogs products are well made, attractive, and reasonably priced, especially when on sale.

Cool vest for hot SAR K9
I ordered this mesh vest for summer for my search and rescue partner, Sally (an Australian shepherd). In Alaska, our spoiled dogs think 70 degrees is pretty hot, and since I love the "solid" version of this vest that she wears during cooler months, I decided that the mesh one would make sense for summer. Glad that ActiveDogs frequently rotates their sale items and I didn't have to wait long to catch this one on sale. It fits well, like the winter one, as expected, and should help Sally stay cooler. Also, the customer service was great - somehow the shipping method was changed (from 9$ to 30+ dollar method) as I submitted my order (after customer service hours on a Friday, of course), so I sent an email and thankfully they were able to fix it before processing the order on their end. Thank you for a great product and customer service!

Great Vest for Summer!
This vest fits my SD and will be much cooler for Summer. This style has the handle which makes it easier for me with some arthritis in my hands (as opposed to tightening a leash around my hand). The D-rings are great to attached ID or small pack to carry items. The only thing I don't like is the clear window for ID, the Velcro is very hard to open and the ID sticks to the plastic, but I needed the vest with the handle (the other mesh vest Active Dogs offers does not have the plastic ID area,but does not have the handle either). The vest itself is very well made, I purchased this with "service dog" patches on both sides, and I can easily add her other patches that are needed to the vest.

Mesh vest
I was worried about having a regular vest on my service dog this summer. This vest was on sale. As I opened the box, my dog took the vest out and carried it to his Sherpa bed (also bought from Active Dogs). I put it on him and it is a great fit. I can’t wait for the snow to stop here in Wisconsin so we can try it out!

Love this vest!!
First of all - LOVE this store! It is hard to find products for our giant breed dogs and we needed a Therapy Dog Vest for our Irish Wolfhound. He is a medium size hound with a 43in chest circumference. I searched all over the internet and couldn’t find anything close. Then we found Active Dogs! Found exactly the vest we needed for him. It arrived much sooner than expected and is a top quality product to boot! We will be back for ALL of our giant breed needs and will be sure to pass this information on to our friends.

Nice vest
I received the vest today. It arrived very quickly and it looks awesome! Very well made. I would recommend if you measure at the top of the size to go with the next larger size. My dog measures 31 and so we got the medium. It fits but there is no extra room if he would happen to gain some weight. I may order a girth extender at some point. Anyway, the mesh should be very good for summer.

Favorite Vest
We bought this vest as a backup vest, and it quickly became our go-to vest. (We now have 2.)
The mesh is great. My dog seems to stay a lot cooler while wearing this one. (We're in AZ, so his body temp is a big deal in the summer.) Also, the mesh is super-easy to sew patches on.
We use it all the time. It has held up very well. We have had it over a year, and it still looks brand new.
My dog seems very comfortable when he wears it too. He sits and lays down and moves just fine in it. (Whereas some other vests have made him seem very stiff and he stayed standing all the time.)
We love it and highly recommend it!

Great vest!
Excellent vest. Looks very professional and clean. The lightweight mesh is a great feature, especially during summer and for dogs that don't like wearing things.
I agree with the poster below, the pocket is fairly worthless. It's an odd size, too large for an ID and too small for paperwork.
Patches are hard to attach because of the mesh. I hand sewed mine after trying to glue. It wasn't the easiest, but not terrible, and I think they turned out great.

Great durable product
Great product and holds up to my German Shepherd running through the forest and streams. I use this best for my service dog and does everything I need it too. I got the mesh because he is active and didn't want him to over heat. Only complaint I have is the pocket. The pocket is pretty much useless unless your documents are laminated. My papers were ruined from the perspiration built up. There is only the mess seprating the paperwork from the fur. I'd have gave the pocket air/water tight, otherwise there is no point.

Great!
I really like the mesh as my lab doesn't like wearing big, bulky, HOT vests.

However, I opted to put my own patches on, and am having a hard time doing so. Fabric glue and hand sewing doesn't work well because of the holes in the mesh. I'll have to take it to a professional.

Great summer vest
I got this for my Boxer Service Dog for summer use. Its a very light vest and the mesh will keep your dog cool. The buckle is big and strong plastic. Both the neck and chest straps adjust and stay easy. The pocket for an ID is very hard to open (good thing), velcro is very secure. The 3 D rings come in use for various things like doo doo bags or a leash. (I do not have a handle i use for it). I had two extra patches put on the top so people could read and I RECOMMEND that.

Absolutely Perfect!
The vest is double layered mesh and feels sturdy, not flimsy, even though it's not heavy. It fits very well and my dog doesn't seem to mind it at all (it's a different style and weight from his usual vest - but it's gets well over 100 in the summer and he needed something more breathable). I love the color, I worried it would be light, and since he's yellow it would disappear against him, but it's more of a taupe color. My single wish was that I could have ordered it without the handle, it's a bit small for my hands to use and I'll use a larger handle attached to the side D rings. But that's a very minor thing and it doesn't detract from my happiness with this product.

Awesome Summer Alternative!
I have been using this vest for a couple months now, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. It is very light and breathable compared to most service dog vests, so this is a great option for those summer months. I personally have a dog that is very heat intolerant, so this has become one of our go-to vests. The one thing I would change is the clear window. It can be hard to open, and I wish there was an option to get rid of it altogether. Sizing can also be a little wonky with the way the front strap adjusts so just triple check before you buy!

Great quality, terrible customer service
I ordered this vest and we have had it for about a week or so now. I do think the vest is very high quality and sturdy and my dog and I both like it. However, I sent an email immediately after ordering the vest to make sure that it was the right size, and I never heard back. Thank goodness it was the right size because they have a restocking fee when you ship it back. The thing I’m most upset about is that I emailed them asking if they could do green, never heard back, and then less than 2 weeks later, they have green. 😡 So, if you want a quality vest this website isn’t bad. However, don’t expect to return it or get any help from customer service.

Hi, I just ordered the blue mesh SD vest today for my service dog, and his girth is around a 30-31,” so I went with the large, but I’m not sure if that is the best size or if I should have gone with the medium. I would think typically to size up, but I don’t want the vest to be too big. I thought I would send an email to double check that I ordered the right size for my dog. I’ll put a screen picture below of my order information.

The other question I had is that are these the only colors the mesh comes in? I was specifically looking for green as that is our program color, but I didn’t see it so I chose blue.
Thanks,
Jackie Malloy
