For those of you that use velcro for service dog patches, which velcro brands have you had the most success with? After sewing all of the patches onto Baby's vest I've decided I really don't want to do that again. Chaplin can't wear Baby's for skin sensitivities (portie trait).

But as I look online I'm a little wary of the velcros and am worried they won't stick properly to a vest fabric.

Also, for the "in training patch" what do you suggest I do? I prefer to keep a "service dog" patch on just because I noticed some people get ornery without one so I probably won't be able to find a patch to replace the "in training".

I used the velcro that is made for military uniforms on Tank's vest. It works really well to keep his in training patches on his vest. It is very strong and has a very secure hold.

I had a "Service Dog In Training Patch" for Jake's backpack for when we were out in public. I'm happy it was just an iron on since i was able to eventually pull it off once i was forced to wash Jake.

I also had the leash cover that said "Service Dog" that was very helpful.

I never used velcro though.

If I understood you right, you made a comment that your patch with velcro may not stick to your cape material. You are correct-you must sew (or glue) one side of the velcro (usually the soft side)to your cape, then sew the harder (hook) side to the patch. Some patch companys sell patches with velcro already attached but they are few and far between.

I've used industrial sticky velcro on my cape (from sit stay) and it's so stuck on I can barely get it off. You NEED to follow the instructions and put it on and weigh it down with something heavy overnight before putting the other side that's attached to the patch on it.

Also I put the hard side on the vest and the soft side on the patches, easier to take off and I've had a problem with my nylon leash catching the edge of the hard velcro if it's on the patch and getting hung up.
