This Working Dog Mesh Saddlebag Back Pack Harness Vest is a wildly popular service dog vest. Easy on and easy off, the modular system could not be simpler and is able to be configured perfectly to your needs.
It all starts with a top and bottom layer of extremely high-denier, poly-coated fabric and is fully padded inside with our "No-Stink Interior Padding".
This harness vest boasts exceptional strength along with water resistance.
The included two detachable saddlebags come complete with a patch of their own attached with Velcro for easy patch swapping during and after training. These bags each measure 4" X 7" X 2" and pack a generous 56 cubic inches of cargo each. That's more than enough room for any medication, a cell phone, treats, waste bags and even a small 12 ounce bottle of water. The bags sit at around a 35 degree angle and keep the weight distributed over the dog's front shoulder area.
Saddlebags are made with genuine YKK brand zippers.
This harness vest also features an optional molded rubberized handle which is lightweight but provides a much better grip than traditional nylon loop handles. It takes up much more of your hand for a full and stable grip. The girth straps as well as the chest strap are adjustable for the best fit possible for your service dog.
This service dog backpack vest comes with 2 patches on the vest; one is located on the left-side (typical heeling side) and one is located on top of the vest for easy visibility. Each Saddlebag is outfitted with a Velcro backed patch. That's 4 service dog patches all together.
Additionally, both the girth strap as well as the chest strap is adjustable for the best fit possible.
Sizes are as follows: (girth measurement) 26--30" - 30-34" - 34" - 40" - 40-42"
This vest is available in many different colors to suit your style! Click here to see our color chart.
You can also get your dog's name directly embroidered into your new service dog vest if you'd like. Our embroidery offers a beautifully striking contrast that adds that complete look to your new vest. Please note, all embroidery is done in block letters by default. If you would like your vest embroidered in a cursive font, please select this option during checkout.
A note about sizing - please make sure to measure your dog's girth, TWICE, for an accurate measurement. To do this, use a SOFT FABRIC measuring tape and measure your dog around the chest just behind the front legs. Make sure your dog is standing up while you are doing this. You can also circle your dog's chest with a leash and then measure the leash where you mark it. Click here to go to our size chart.
Make your vest complete with an optional engraved tag. We deeply discounted these tags for our package deals. These engraved tags are perfect for attaching to your dog's vest, collar, leash, pet carrier, or harness.
IMPORTANT: It is illegal to label your dog as a Service Dog if you are not disabled. The ADA defines a Service Animal any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. If they meet this definition, animals are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether they have been licensed or certified by a state or local government. A service animal is not a pet. Vests for Service Dogs is not responsible for those making purchases under false pretenses. To read more about the differnt types of service dogs click here.

I have a very large Great Pyrenees and she had grown out of her old vest. I wasn't able to find a company that made a large enough vest that fit the diminesions they said it would. This vest it true to size and looks beautiful! She also doesn't mind wearing it even in the heat. I would buy again from this company in a heart beat.
The only down side is that the patch that is on the vest is sewn on instead of Velcro so it can't be changed out. I know it's minor but I had expected Velcro patches like on the bags. Other then that it is perfect! Would recommend 100%!

The vest is awesome the only downfall the bags on the sides flop around a little, maybe a hook or something on the bottom would serve a good purpose, or maybe I'm not putting them on correctly?!

Could not be happier with this product. Fits great with room for my puppy to grow. The saddle bags are the perfect size to carry small items for myself and my dog. Patches are very visible to the public. It is easy to put on and to take off.
