I've had this for a year
We've used this vest for over a year. It has been rxcellent. Great price, good quality, and it doesn't boher my service dog. Whether es standing, sleeping, or rolling around this vest has never bothered him or pulled his hair. It's customizeable, as seen by the patches, and has a couple d rings for add on stuff.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

Great Custom Vest
Love this vest! It fits my pup perfectly. Make sure you triple measure! He is very comfortable in it and doesn’t sit uncomfortably in his arm pits like many vests tend to do. Another issue I have had with other vests is that they tend to twist and turn sideways on his back no matter how tight it was, but this vest doesn’t do that! Would recommend this vest to anyone!

8 years and still perfect
Bought this in 2010 for my now 130 pound Shiloh Shepherd SD. The vest has held up and been through a lot, and I recently contacted customer service for suggestions for girth extension. Instead of recommending another larger purchase, they responded with affordable accommodating solutions and took the time to explain rationale. They also replied within a few hours. I will continue to buy and recommend this company for all special dog needs.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

Runs a Tad Small but...
This vest runs a tad smaller than advertised. I got a size Small for my border collie - I measured her girth multiple times and it was 23" for sure and yet this vest is snug. Thankfully, snug in a good way, and fits good. Just a warning for those who aren't sure which size to order. Otherwise, this vest was BEAUTIFUL! It's really sturdy and well constructed. I got it in aqua and it's so bright and such a lovely pigment. My friend has the pink vest and that one is really nice as well. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice vest!

Deluxe Vest
My navy vest came in today and I am 100% satisfied. This vest looks very well made. The sizing was accurate too. This vest fits very well. The handle is durable. My service dog took to it too without issue. I am blown away.

Thank you for making a great product.

Love this vest
You were recommended by a friend.
I ordered my vest and received it in 3 days on standard shipping. It is beautiful. Very well made and the patches look great! Anytime I don't have to sew on a patch is a plus in my book!
It looks wonderful on my new SDiT.
I would highly recommend. The quality is better than the company I used previously.
I have been training Service and SAR dogs for years. I would definitely recommend this vest and your comapany.

So happy that I ordered this
I had searched quite a bit, and only found a lot of cheap looking products around the web. This vest looked good, with good reviews, and so I took a chance. SO GLAD that I did. The vest fit perfectly, the patches look great, and the dog is loving it! He looks so proud, running around, showing it off to everyone. He was completely comfortable from the second we put it on, and he looks like a sharped dressed dog! Everyone is saying how awesome he looks.

I ordered this over the weekend, and my vest with custom patches shipped Monday morning. I am so pleased with the purchase, that I have come back to order more items.

Can't recommend this enough! Thank you to everyone at Active Dogs.

I'll rewrite this if my issue is resolved! I just spent over $100 on a Service Dog vest and more! I paid for overnight shipping and delivery! The credit card charge hit immediately! I have a receipt! However, when I look up my order status it reflects nothing! I contacted the company at various contact points to include multiple emails and not one single response! I have the Service Dog and she helps me a lot even crossing a street safely! She's a legitimately registered Service Dog! The new vest is needed now! I can't recommend the products or company when they don't answer my inquiries and I don't receive the products as ordered!

No, I would NOT recommend this product.

Great Vest
Thanks so much for the awesome vest. The Padded Harness Vest in Teal looks great on Buddy. The patches were sewn on perfectly, including the Custom Name Patch, which really makes his vest. Please feel free to use the included pic, if you would like.

Jasmine on October 12th, 2016
What size do you have on Buddy? And what is his girth (inches from back to chest)

Simonne Hanson on November 3rd, 2016
What color did you order? And how true in the color seen in the photo to the actual color of the vest? That looks like just what I want for my dog.

How did you get the custom name on the vest?

Super impressed!
When I ordered this for my service dog, I was worried about the size being too big for her. The smallest vest fits her perfectly, as it turns out. That, however, has nothing to do with the quality of this vest-

AMAZING! I can't say enough good about this vest. It's made of really great quality material (not cheap or lightweight by any means), and you really are getting more than you're paying for, in my opinion. All of the hardware is durable and has stood field work up to this point. They sewed on patches and shipped the very next day, and it arrived right on target.

Just received my order
This is the first vest that I've bought for my service dog. From the looks of the craftsmanship it looks as though it's going to be my last as well. It's extremely well put together! The handle on the top appears very durable as well. I'd ordered extra patches and there's a place to specify where you'd like them put, which was helpful. They're exactly where I'd asked them to be, and the stitching is done very well. I was concerned about the fit. My girl is 60 pounds with a big chest, but I followed the measurement guide and ordered the medium. PERFECT fit! Very happy and will recommend to others. If I need anything else for her, I now know where to go.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

Working vest
I ordered one of the vest for my working dog absolutely awesome quality. I could not be happier the night orange vest along with the patches make it very clear to not approach the dog he is an aggressive detection dog and I do not want him approached in public. You guys are the best I will continuously order from here and have recommended everyone I know! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

Very impressed!
I am very impressed with the workmanship and quality. This is a vest that will last! I really like the amount of coverage, and since I was looking for a vest with a handle, this fit the bill. Wanted a simple handle to start, so she can get used to the feel and once she's fully mature bone wise, we can attach a neoprene handle for guiding me to exits, etc. Nice feel, my SDiT loves it (started crying to try it on when it came out of the package.) No rub points and the company has extenders you can purchase for the vest, perfect for growing a 6 mo old retriever :)

Amazing Quality
I purchase this vest for my Service Dog over 12 years ago. It is still in great shape, is used daily, has retained it's color and shows little or no wear.

Great vest
This vest is very high quality and my SDiT took to it immediately.


October 12th, 2013
My old dog is 13yo and beginning to have trouble with my stairs (65-pound Hovawart - too big to carry). Needed something to control and guide his walk down the stairs without choking him in a leash hold on his neck. This harness is the absolute best thing I could find. The firm handle allows me to guide and lift, so he doesn't tumble down. Also, just generally for walking, I'm surprised at the better coordination it gives me in guiding the walk. Bought the harness with the 30-inch comfort grip traffic leash, and together it's perfect. This has done wonders to ease the stress of an aging problem. Thank you ActiveDogs!

The best built vest
I ordered this vest after my SD grew out of the search and rescue one. It is amazing how high quality and durable it is. I travel quite a bit so this vest gets beat up a lot and it still remains in tact with no fraying what so ever. Very happy with the product. The only thing is the chest strap is just a little too large but the girth fits great. Although I think this is due to my dogs awkward features. Active Dogs is amazing and I will continue to order from them.

Padded Harness Vest
Excellent workmanship, perfect placement per my instructions, top-notch customer service. I odered this vest for my service dog - an amazing GSD. He needed a new one and I was looking for the best one I could find that would be comfortable for him. Well...absolutely it is this one. The quality of the workmanship on this vest is impeccable - stitching, materials, etc. I gave them very specific placement instruction for the patches (also ordered from ActiveDogs) and they did followed my instructions precisely. The customer service over the phone was a very pleasant experience. I, without hesitation, highly recommend both this vest and

We have owned this vest for 7 years and it still looks new! The stitching is still solid, the color has not faded. We have used it for pulling (manual chair when power one goes out and on snow skis!) We have received more compliments from other service dog owners as where to find and how much I spent on such a comfortable and fine product. I am AMAZED that this product does not cost more, as I would gladly pay for such a high quality item! My dog is now 11 and we still love our vest!


Auburn, Wa US
May 13th, 2012
The quality of this vest is very high, and it's very durable. I had additional patches sewn on and the job was superb. My service dog has never worn a vest, but so many people are scamming stores that retailers are put in a difficult spot. With the vest on, it puts them at ease. This vest fits well, and does not impinge his movement. He likes it, I like it. We're give this vest 4 wags (stars). :-)


May 7th, 2012
I really like the build and quality of this vest, it's very nice. BUT! The teal color is very very dark, MUCH darker then it looks in the picture of a teal harness on the German Shepherd. So be aware that it's very dark if you're thinking of purchasing it in Teal.

Judy A Bridges on May 18th, 2015
Thank you for the information. I was considering the teal for my Dalmatian/Golden Retriever Service Dog. The color is really striking in the pictures and would look fantastic on Febe. However, I may just match my husband's SD and go with the purple. I know what that one looks like.

ActiveDogs customer, did you see we've now added an Aqua color. Hopefully this will be exactly what you are looking for in brightness!

Awesome Vest
I bought this vest for Joker my balance and mobility dog. I thought it would be cooler in summer then his heavy duty leather harness. I bought the purple harness and added the patches service dog and do not pet, along with the three prong leash. Joker loves it and increased his speed while pulling. I took him to one of my dr. appt. The nurse took one look at him and asked if I got a new dog. I told her it's the same dog just a new harness. I have washed this harness in my washer on gentle and air dried. It did beautifully. Thanks Active Dog.

Loved this vest for my SDiT
I ordered this vest in orange many moons ago with the "working dog do not pet" patch for my SDiT. It has worked perfectly for my needs. In my experience - do not use stitch witchery to stick patches on vests made out of this material. I tried to apply additional patches and within 20 minutes they were falling off so I ended up sewing them on anyway. My dog has now outgrown this vest and I just received the working dog vest and love that one too. Both vests are of very high quality.

Great Quality
I just recieved my service dogs first vest a few months ago. He is in training so I wanted something that would grow with him. I choose the S&R style and added a few extra "In training" patches. It is very well made, fits my growing pup well, and he adapted to it with no problems. It looks very official and I have had NO issues with entrance into stores or resturants as long as he wears his vest with ID. Wish there was a S&R style JUST LIKE THIS only in mesh for the summer months as I feel the padding will be hot in the summer months and the mesh vest offered doesnt have the ID pocket. Highly recommend this product and company!


September 3rd, 2011
This vest is not only a perfect fit for my black Lab, but it is very stylish. The harness almost molds to her contours. PLUS, the quality of construction is the best by far. I got hers in bright orange and she now stands out in the crowd! I added the 24" Reflective Traffic Leash to my order and it is also of great quality and the perfect length. To get the harness at a sale price and delivered within 48 hours is a rare treat these days. THANKS!

High quality & great choice of colors
I purchased this vest for my SD, Simon, and when it came it was a perfect fit. It's been used daily for many months and just needs a hand washing now and again. Otherwise the vest looks brand new! I predict we will use this vest for many years. I also purchased the 18" the neopreme handle and attached it to the outside D rings. It would work perfectly if the D rings were more in the middle of the vest. I feel like I'm encouraging Simon to pull when they are so far back. I just need him to help with light balance work.


April 20th, 2011
Just what I wanted!
I bought this vest to use with my 2y/o GSD Ziggy because people would constantly be asking to pet him. He is shy and doesn't like direct approaches from strangers. This vest has been fantastic for him! People now ignore him and he is progressing beautifully in his training. I have recommended this vest to many other owners! I orderd the yellow and the color is great. The vest is very sturdy and well made, I just love it!

Best Quality
I purchased this vest, in black, for my Doberman (SD). Wow! He's absolutely stunning in it. He now has three different styles of vests, and they are all great! His oldest vest is over five years old, and it is STILL in perfect condition! The quality of these vests is superb.


October 1st, 2010
Love this vest!
I bought this vest (on sale) for my SDIT Max. Max looks great in it and fits quite well. The patch that came with it is of high quality and wasn't too hard to sew on by hand. I didn't really need the ID clip and it wasn't too hard to remove with a seam ripper. I have kept it for possible later usage. Removing it let me sew more patches on that side of the vest. You can't see that something was there unless you plaster your eyeballs to Max's torso. We use the neoprene bridge handle with it and it works great. Max loves working.

Finally Perfect!
Amy I received Karma's vest today and I just wanted to say: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!! I am so ecstatic that you guys changed the material on the back of the harness vest! My one and only gripe about the vest we had before was that dog hair stuck like crazy all over the fleecy back and was impossible to get out (even with duct tape, washing, pet hair rollers and ultimately a Furminator). Now the vest is perfect! THANK YOU!
