Service Dog Cape/Vest

BLD’s Service Dog Cape/Vest is a utilitarian accessory for displaying identifying patches, increasing visibility, and holding essentials, such as medicine, paperwork, a wallet, phone, clean up supplies, or other small items. Attach like a cape to your dog’s harness, or wear it as a vest by adding a chest strap (available separately).

  • Attaches easily to BLD’s Mobility Support and Balance Assistance Harnesses (MSH, BAH)
  • Add a Chest Strap to use as a stand-alone service dog vest (available separately)
  • Comfortable, adjustable, heavy-duty elastic belly band
  • Easy to use metal quick-release buckle–a BLD exclusive!
  • Integrated Velcro panels to attach patches–no sewing required!
  • Velcro Patches available separately here

Professionally hand made in Colorado to BLD’s exacting standards. Machine washable.

Chest Strap Harness, available separately, permits this cape/vest to be worn without a harness. HARNESS and patches NOT INCLUDED–shown attached to harnesses for reference only.

FOR LEGITIMATE WORKING, SERVICE / ASSISTANCE DOGS ONLY.  IT IS ILLEGAL AND UNETHICAL TO IMPERSONATE A SERVICE DOG.

Description

Made in the USA with premium, water-resistant, nylon fabric. Features reflective trim for visibility at night, reinforced seams, and edge binding for extra durability. Smooth, one-piece backing means there are no seams to irritate the dog. Webbing loops on the inside of vest are designed to let you replace the belly strap, or fit the vest to other harness styles. Our silver metal quick-release buckle is very easy to use! (Only available in Silver.) Unlike plastic buckles, it is easy to open and secure, even by those with limited hand strength. Machine washable (delicate cycle in a mesh bag is recommended); lay flat to air dry.

Have a BLD harness? This cape/vest is specifically designed to be compatible with the Mobility Support Harness, Balance Assistance Harness, and Everyday Working Harness. It lays on the dog’s back behind the harness saddle and does not interfere with the function of your harness, or overburden your dog. Velcro tabs attach the cape/vest to the d-rings on your harness. Flat, low-profile design does not catch on your legs as you walk next to your dog. If you have a BLD leather guide handle, we recommend adding key-rings or a clip to the harness d-rings to allow a little more space for the cape and guide handle to attach–just ask us if you need them.

**If customization is needed: Cape/vest can be customized by your local embroidery shop, or you can sew on your own patches. We’ve designed this vest with webbing loops on the inside of the cape to make it easier for you or a seamstress to change out the strap or buckle attachment to meet your needs.

    Great addition to my harness! I like the extra visibility the cape provides and find the pocket perfect for stashing extra doggie bags, my keys, cash or cards.
