Access ID™ Lite Service Dog Vest

service dog vest lite

Color

Selected: Magpie Blue

The Access ID Lite Vest is a simplified version of our popular Access ID Vest for service dogs. Canines sporting this service dog vest present a professional appearance while on the job or accompanying their human companions on outdoor adventures.

Five points of adjustment provide a proper fit and allow for full range of motion, while reflective trim creates visibility in low-light environments. Stash small essentials in the zipper pocket and quickly take the vest on and off with the side-release buckles. 

For a more robust ID vest option, check out the Access ID Vest.

Previously, our line of service dog products were only available to purchase through select service dog schools. The lack of product availability to a portion of the service dog community does not align with our core belief in supporting the critical role of working dogs in our society. Going forward, Ruffwear will offer access to our service dog products on Ruffwear.com as a means to reach those who truly depend on it. Read the full statement here.

    Lightweight, visible, professional

    Bought this for my German Shepherd service dog- since moving to southern California, our heavier harnesses became impractical for the summer months. This vest is super light and comfortable for my dog, even when it's hot. It's also very visible and professional looking, unlike our other fleece Y-front option, which makes people more aware that she's working when we're in public. My dog finds it very comfortable and has no trouble settling in tight spaces with it on.

    We do a lot of hiking and trail running and I plan on taking her to National Parks soon- the full range of motion and water resistance of this vest will be great on trail while still obviously identifying her as a service dog in non-pet friendly areas.

    I want to add either embroidery or a patch reading "Do Not Pet" or some variation of that to the top middle section- the kind of bare panel on top is my only complaint about this vest. But I understand it was originally made for service dog programs who display there logos up there, so I get it. it doesn't seem tough to embroider or sew a patch onto, so I'll do that myself.

    Really glad this has been released to owner-trainers! I will be almost-exclusively using this vest moving forward.

    My GSD is a petite 54 pounds and a medium fits her perfectly, with some room to spare.

    Access ID Lite SD Vest

    Hands down this is my favorite vest for my medical alert and response service dog. My dog has full range of motion while working in this vest and the light weight material will help keep her cool and comfortable in the summer. An added bonus is the vest will work well with my dog’s Ruffwear jackets during rainy or cold weather. The only downside would be the pockets are small but that is not a concern for me since I rarely utilize the pockets of my dog’s working gear.

    Lightweight and professional

    I love this vest, it’s lightweight, professional and well made. I love how easily it washable as well. Once you get the adjustments right the scrunching does mostly go away. Thank you for making these available to owner trained SD’s!

    Light and Perfect for the Summer Months

    This is the perfect vest for spring and summer. I can keep my dog vested without worrying about him getting overheated.
