What's in a service dog vest?

Posted by

When it comes to service dog vests, all things are created equal, right?  Wrong. We have been at this for a while now, having outfitted over 35,000 working dogs to date - I can assure you, not all vests and harnesses are created equal. What exactly does that mean to somebody looking to get a vest for their dog?

For starters, it is important to understand that the majority of sellers out there are not the manufacturer. They are simply selling the product and collecting the money. That is not a bad thing, unless you have detailed questions or need support. If the seller's manufacturer is willing to provide support, this can work out fine, but most companies do not provide support to their customer's customer. Wiredog is always available for product support. Even our dealers that sell our items know that we are here to help them directly or even help their customer if need be. Whether you choose a Wiredog vest or not is not the point - the point is to make sure you are buying from a company that will give you the support you deserve - even after the sale.

Another thing is quality. Due to our personal convictions, involvement with government organizations and support of our wounded troops, we are huge in Made in the U.S.A. If this is important to you, make sure you find out where your product is made. Every service dog vest made by Wiredog, for instance, is made right here in Ohio - we wouldn't have it any other way.

Finally, make sure you are comfortable with the materials being used in your product. Are they high-quality? If the product is going to stand up to the daily abuse given by our canine friends, the components better be high-quality - you should never have to settle for second best.

Whether you choose to purchase a Wiredog vest for your dog or not, we hope this article has been informative for you and will help you make the best decision for you and your canine.
