Registries are just a big scam, just get or make your own IDs. We've been very happy with the tags we bought at www.doggydmv.com. They are made of the same material as security badges, has Gabby's picture on the front and the ADA guide on the back with the DOJ 1-800 number. They sell them in sets, 1 for Gabby and one for my wallet. I don't remember the exact price but I thought it was very reasonable.

You might want to consider an ID tag instead of a vest as it accomplishes the same function but is cooler and non-restrictive to your service dog. snoopy

I just discovered a site that will "Certify" your animal with the click of a mouse for get this $250. For your $250 you get

* a dog vest
* Service dog patches (we do not sew patches to vest)
* Personalized Service Dog Certificate
* Wallet card
* All for $249 (+ S/H)
* "Ask To Pet Me" patch is an additional $10

Just do a yahoo search for "service dog certification" and they are near the top. How does this person live with themself?

My company DoggyDMV.com makes Service Dog ID tags and even I think the way the ADA law is now written is a joke. The law is way to vague. I don't understand why if you want to park your car in a handicapped parking space you have to get a note from your doctor and then go to the courthouse to get a tag, but if you have a service dog you either put up with the hassle of trying to explain your rights to uninformed business owners or you buy a tag or a vest that states that your dog is a service dog. I get letters every day from people that say that they are constantly hassled by business owners because they don't know the law. Now you have some states issuing service dog tags because the ADA law is so screwed up. Then you get into "certified" dogs, again this is a joke because there are no official guidelines for what "certified" means. I get referrals from vets and training facilities all the time because there are no official tags that they can issue. I also feel for business owners because any person can walk in with their "pet" and say it's a service dog and the according to the ADA they can not ask for proof that it is in fact a service dog. This is a situation that will only get worse.
