|Zoey so far has had two vests:
the first I used when I began her training, it was just a simple red cape with a zipper pocket on each side, it was big enough to carry some poop bags and her ID tags as I found the jingle they made on her collar annoing. The only thing I did not like about this vest, is that it sometimes sat cricket on her back, which irritated my OCD to no end, and the fact that it did not have a handle. I did not mind this at first but after having her vest now with a handle. I would never go back. You can find a picture of this fast on my profile.
Her second and current vest was inspired by Julius K-9. I love the fact that they had large pouches on each side, but unfortunately there vests/harnesses did not come in the size I needed(extra extra small) with the features I wanted, so I made it myself. of course it's not the quality of the Julius K-9 harnesses, but it serves its purpose well. I love the detachable pouches on each side. Although now I decided not to put my glucose test kit in her vasts. I don't need them that big anymore. Might also has the flashlight holder on each side, which I've only used 2 to 3 times in the past year.but like I said, I love the padded handle and would never use a vest/harness without a handle ever again. both of my vests have Velcro on their sides so that I can move patches around as I please.the picture of this vest can also be found on my profile.
it's been a year and a already plan on making a new vest that I think will suit my needs even more. Her new vest will have like I said, I found I only need a small pouch now to carry information oh brochures, emergency information for me, poop bags and her ID tags. I also went to have it. A light almost mesh/jersey material so that it is not too hot when it's summertime; and of course it will have a handle. I'm sure you'll find depending on your needs. What your dogs vest to have feature wise, examples would be a pouch(and what size), padded straps(or the option), a handle(what type handle a soft or a hard rigid handle), etc. I hope you'll find the perfect fast for you and your service dog.
