This vest was designed with a specific purpose in mind. I not only required storage in my handler vest but I wanted identification. When I am in public training a service dog I have often thought I should design an embroidered back handler vest stating "Service Dog Trainer" so people will not disrupt me while I am training. The Trainers Choice Embroidered Handler Vest does just that. This vest comes embroidered if you choose or you can have it with no embroidery. It is light weight without restriction in the neck and armhole areas so you have easy movement. It is fully lined, no scratchy seams and has a full front molded zipper.  Another issue is always that pesky dog hair but dog hair dose not stick to this fabric.  The vest is easily cleaned by wiping off with damp towel.  Lots of pockets and D-rings on this vest, you can never have too many storage pockets. There are 7 pockets on this vest. The back has a full width pocket that can be accessed from either side, with a top center D-ring.  I like this D-ring for hanging of a short pull tab or a small tug.  On the front of the vest there are two large lower pockets.  The top area of the vest has a great side opening mesh pocket, this works well for draping a tug or roped ball and letting the dog see it for motivation.  On that same mesh pocket there is another D-ring at the top, this can be used for the same purpose.  It also works great to hang a remote controller.  The other side of the top has a double pocket.  A mesh pocket with top opening, this is where I put my phone so I can easily hear and see it.  Behind that mesh pocket is a zippered pocket, a good feature if you want to secure keys or smaller loose items.  One of the best features of this vest is the built in poop bag holder.  The bags are easily accessible from the vest exterior. Convenient to load on the vest lower left side.  The lower right side of the vest has another D-ring.  This work for hooking your leash.  We will custom embroider this vest for you.  You can have your text and/or logo put on the vest front and you can choose your text for across the yoke of the vest back. The Trainers Choice Embroidered Handler Vest is black in color and comes in five sizes.

With custom embroidery item may take a few additional days to process once logo proof is approved, if express shipping is ordered production time is still 1-3 days.

Embroidery Options
For an additional $10, you can choose to have text and/or a logo embroidered on the either the left or right side of the front of the vest. A custom logo will also require a one-time $25 digitizing fee.

For an additional $10, you can also choose to have text embroidered across the yoke of the vest back.

**Brush font may be difficult to read if you choose all caps**

Get the right fit!
Measure your clothing size! Here's how:
TIP: Use a flexible tape measure to measure your size.
1. Chest - Measurement is from the fullest area of your chest.
2. Waist - Measurement is around the narrowest part of the waist.
3. Hip - Measurement is around the fullest point of the hip, with feet together, standing tall.
4. Length - Measurement is from the nape of your neck to the bottom hem of clothing product.
Choosing the right size doesn't have to be hard. Are you between two sizes? If so, if you like a snug fit go with the smaller size, but if you prefer a loose fit go with the larger size.
Top Fit Tip
If your body measurement for the chest and waist result in two different suggested sizes, order the size from your chest measurement.

Nice Vest
This is my first training vest so I have nothing to compare it to. It seems well made. Fits well and is comfortable. Has nice pockets for all my training gear. The only suggestion I have that would make it one step better would be the addition of a loop so I could hang it on a hook with the rest of my gear. It doesn't really hang on a hook well so I place it on a coat hanger and hang that from the hook. Not a deal breaker just a suggestion.

Custom Training Vest
After researching multiple training vests, I ordered a black and charcoal custom training vest from active dogs for tracking training.

I am a female, 5ft. 7in. and 122 lbs, the small fits perfectly over a hoodie.

I had Hartspride custom embroidered on the front and back for the name of our Australian Shepherd training and breeding program. The color and font was true to example and looks very professional.

I love the deep pockets and their symmetry. Especially the back pocket. It looks like it would be a decent wind and water break as well.

Shipping time was reasonable, especially given Covid and shipping to Canada. Customer service responded within a couple of hours when I texted questions and followed up on delivery and satisfaction level.

I have worked as a private protection dog handler and I have trained/handled dogs in obedience, agility, dog sledding, agitation, and tracking. Would definitely recommend.

We will be posting some videos and pictures in use on Hartsprideaustralianshepherds on Instagram in the near future.

This vest was purchased for my daughter a junior handler and she and her dog's name were embroidered on the front chest area. It looks great. So many fun pockets for surprises and sleek enough to not be bulky. It is really comfortable, very well made, used for indoor class and outdoor use. She looks like a professional trainer!

Wish I had one years ago!
This is a great training vest. I train my service dogs and have always used a small backpack to carry my emergency medicine, phone, ID, etc (because I don’t stop being disabled when training a new Service Dog) while my jeans pockets were stuffed with keys, bags, clickers, and an assortment of reinforcers.

This vest gives me everything. I put my emergency medicine in a small service dog pouch, slip that into a rear pocket and clip it to the rear D ring so it doesn’t slip around. Phone, ID and my dog’s vaccine certificate go into the front upper pocket. Cash and keys go into the zippered chest pocket.

That leaves the two large side pockets and one rear pocket for all my training things. I always have plenty of room.

With the embroidery, other people can see I’m seriously working my young dog. I’m not just out playing with him, so I get virtually no interruptions.

One thing, this isn’t the most fashionable vest, but it’s perfectly functional. I’ll take functional every time.

Thanks Active Dogs. Another great product.

Very Functional and Essential For Me
Honestly, never thought I would be this “geek-a-dork”. I’m in a SAR volunteer group with two certified dogs. I have resisted this type of apparel for years. Not sure why. It is now my essential “go to” piece of clothing. After years of fumbling with bait bags, toys in pockets, “where’s my phone?”, “where’s my note pad?”, I’ve finally realized this is a simple piece that adds to my functionality. Those of us in SAR have so very much stuff we carry... chest packs, back packs. But sometimes items you need have to be unzipped or found in a cavity of a pack. With this piece, the items essential for your dog training are right at hand. It’s light weight and of good construction. Make sure you consider the amount of undergarments you have under this vest to get the right size. Active Dogs has always been a very personable, helpful company with a very honest vibe. FYI, we did not get the embroidery as sometimes we need to be careful with branding.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

Great vest
This is my first training vest and I’m really happy with it. I love the placements of the pockets and the entire vest is great quality. The fit is a little boxy/heavy on me. I wish the material moved a little better with my body. I was anticipating having this issue and did go a size up to have more room for movement. I am thankful I went up a size even though the larger size is too long on me. All in all, I would buy the vest again and recommend it.

Unhappy with Vest
I do not like the Vest, it is stiff, boxy, and feels like you have a tarp on. I believe I ordered a large Vest and received an extra large. It is extremely big. I paid to the extra fee to have my organizational name embroidered on the Vest and therefore I can not exchange or return the garment. If I am going to try to use this Vest anyway, I will have to get it tailored at my expense. I have concerns that a Tailor may not be able to alter the vest due to the odd stiff material. We shall see.
To their credit, the embroidery was very nice.

Micki,
We are sorry to hear you are not happy with the vest. The material is designed to be wind resistant and dog hair resistant and to have a clean professional look even while training. The material will soften some if washed and dried with softener.
We did take a look and confirm your order#272388 was ordered in size XL.
