The Protégé Vest is a functional identification vest for working dogs in training. It communicates to the public and signals to the dog that it's time to work. Abrasion- and water-resistant materials, three points of adjustment, and a stretchy mesh fabric at the neck come together for exceptional fit and durability through the various stages of puppyhood. It’s a key piece of gear as the dog gets used to wearing a vest and prepares to graduate to the guide dog harness.
