Dog Vest

Types Of Dog Vests


Dog vests available in the stores online and offline are of different types. Here are a few important types:


Service Dog Vests

These are used to identify the dog as a service dog and that the dog is working. The working time is when the dog is not allowed to play or run around or do other similar things.

When the vest is taken off the dog can play and ramble around. People around you will also know that the dog is on job and avoid giving treats or petting it.


Dog Weight Vest

These are weighted vests used for the purpose of encouraging your dog to increase its muscle mass and enhance functional strength. The vests are available in different sizes to fit different breeds.

The weight also differs based on the maximum weight a pet can comfortably handle. The weight vest is fitness equipment that keeps the fitness level of your canine at a high level.


Tactical Dog Vest

Tactical vests are vests that have an additional functionality than just the capability for attaching a leash to the vest. The vests have pockets, Molle straps, morale patches and more. These are heavy duty vests.


Hunting Vest

Hunting dogs need safety vest that will keep the dog visible. The vests are reflective and waterproof. The vest in addition to keeping the dog visible to the hunters also protects the skin of the dog from abrasions and various other injuries. The flannel layer added to the vest keeps it warm during cold weather and will avoid overheating.


Crucial Features To Look For In A Dog Vest

When you purchase a vest for your pet dog there are certain features to consider. Here are the important features:


Proper fit

The vest should not be loose fitting to an extent where it easily slips off. It should also not be too tight where it will make it uncomfortable for trotting, sitting or lying down.


Offer Comfort

Vests that have features such as breathable mesh inner lining, padded straps etc. ensure that the dog stays comfortable while wearing the vest.

Padding: A vest which has padding in leg region offers better comfort as most often the vest tends to chafe against the legs of your pet and can cause discomfort to your pet.

Breathable vest: The material of the vest should be breathable, if you are living in a sunny and hot region. This will prevent the dog from getting overheated and needing medical attention.


Convenient To Use

The vest should be easy to use. Putting it on your pet or removing it should be easy. Since the vest will be put on or removed frequently it should be easy to handle.


Proper Leash Attachment

The vest should have easy leash attachment. You should look for a particular handle type, if the service dog is pulling your wheelchair or provides support for you when you walk.

Presence of D ring in the vest will make it easy to put the leash. Since this area is where the maximum force is applied the attachment point of the leash should be strong.

Ensure the vest provides a safe way to secure the dog when you are outdoors with your pet.


Size Of Buckle

If you have weak hands or have dexterity issues, you need to look for vests that have large buckles. Avoid cheap dog vests with buckles that break or jam after a few times of using them.


Sufficient Adjustments

For the vest to have a proper fit, you should ensure the vest has sufficient number of points for adjusting it. This is particularly true about the vest that wraps around belly region of the pet. Some quantity of elasticity is desirable to ensure a snug fit that does not cause any discomfort to the dog.


Cost Of The Vest

Contrary to popular opinion, the most expensive vests are not always the best vests. What you need to consider when it involves the price is find a product that is manufactured by a reputed company.

Look for online reviews to know about the customer feedback. With plenty of information available online, you can easily find the right quality vest at the right price with a small amount of research.


Distribution Of Weight

When you buy vests with pockets make sure the pockets are evenly distributed. Pocket on just one side can be very annoying for the pet when you carry things. Since the dog shifts the weight all over, it is your responsibility to ensure the vest is seated properly.


Vest With Molle Attachments

Tactical vests offer the convenience of customizing the vest according to your preference.  Molle strap is a very convenient attachment as it helps to attach pull strap or other items when you use a d ring on it.

To attach any item like a pouch using Molle straps, you have to weave Molle strap over and also under ever webbing piece. Just sliding it and fastening the button will not keep it secure.

Pouches are very useful for carrying medications, personal items or any other medical information in case of any untoward incidences.


Final Takeaway

Now that you know about the different type of vests and the features to look for while shopping for a vest, choosing the right one will be easy. With plenty of products flooding the market, knowing important information about vests can help you make the right decision. You can buy a suitable vest that will keep you and your pet happy and comfortable.
