Named in honor of the pup who received the original design on this vest, "Bunker, the Emergency Service Therapy K-9", we are now offering this vest style in our shop. Made from recycled firefighter turnout gear, these vests are perfect for service dogs, therapy dogs, search & rescue k-9's, Station mascots, or just to be visible on that night outing. Because they are made from retired gear, they are extremely durable & waterproof. Shaped similar to a firefighter's structure coat with a name flap, these vests are both practical and attractive. Each vest includes the embroidered name of your choice across the back. They are lined with a lightweight quilted liner and accented with reflective striping for high visibility. The chest strap is adjustable with velcro, and the tummy strap features a heavy duty quick release buckle along with a tri-glide for adjusting to fit your pet. A hand grip is attached to the top for quick control. We use actual retired gear, not "similar" fabric, which has been thoroughly cleaned before use. Exact design may vary due to gear used. ***PLEASE NOTE: PATCHES & ID CASE ARE NOT INCLUDED *** The link for matching patches is: https://www.etsy.com/listing/735133643/service-dog-patch-therapy-dog-patch-ptsd?ref=shop_home_active_4&frs=1.

Since each vest is made at the time of order, vests can be customized to fit your intended use. We can also add pockets to the sides for hiking or SAR use. Just let me know your needs and I will customize the vest accordingly. As each pet is different, you will be asked to provide measurements when you order, to insure the proper fit.

A portion of every sale is donated to pet rescue organizations, which is a cause near and dear to our hearts.

Amazing! I was so impressed with how well this vest was made. All my co-workers love it and since my dog Star is a service dog she runs on the ambulance with me. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I will definitely be ordering others in different colors! I have yet to find a vest that is comparable or better, I was just so impressed! Look no further order now! For the amount of work that goes into this vest, the price is perfect and affordable! Easy to work with and willing to adapt to any changes you want to be made. Like I said for the amount of work that goes into it, it is also mailed out in a very timely fashion. i have never left a review for any products on here because I felt they weren't worth it. This by far deserves recognition!
