"I love the vest! And I'm sure my dog would tell you the same"

By: Jeff Grandner From PA

Brittany spanial. Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. I love the vest! and i'm sure my dog would tell you the same when he gets into all the green briers and thickets. i like the bright orange its real easy to pick him out when hunting the taller fields of grass or off at a distance in the grouse woods. the only thing that was off was the size measurements, i measured my dog and bought the correct match for his size but it was to tight across the chest. i went to the next size up and it was almost perfect. no rubbing on the legs, shoulders, or belly if i had to say one thing i don't like it is across the front of his chest, it acts as a scoop for debris to collet in there. so what i will do is pinch it a little to take the belly of material out across the chest and have it sewn there for a custom fit. but i cant blame the manufacture for that since like people dogs are not all the same size and build. BUT the one thing that i will give a 110% satisfaction on is the customer service! when i received this item it did not fit, i made a call and sent it back in no time i had a new one at my front door the day before i needed it to go hunt him. i told them on the phone that i would really like to have it before the opening day of pheasant (it was 3 days away) and they did it with no extra charges!!! AWSOME you got your self a new customer for all my dog hunting needs for sure.

thanks again Steve your a good man!

Hunts. Family pet. Works great! It was hard for us to find a vest small enough for our dog, and this fit him perfect! We have had no problems in the field with the vest whatsoever, and our dog doesn't mind having it on one bit. It definitely gives us piece of mind since he has cut his chest open on barbed wire previously. Thanks for making a great product available for the smaller dogs!

Owns 3 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. We have purchased a variety of hunting vests in the past. They didn't last long and didn't protect the way the Body Guard Dog Vest does.

"For safety, health and peace of mind I'd recommend this tough little vest."

By: Colin MacKinnon From MA

Hunts. Family pet. My dog gets cut up on a regular basis in the heavy brush of upland hunting. The vest I had on her this season was a "hand-me-down" from a previous, but much heavier Irish Setter. This vest worked for him and now is working for her in reducing the seriousness of these cuts and scratches. The vest I purchased this Christmas fits my new young lady perfectly. On top of all this it makes her "visible" to other hunters. For safety, health and peace of mind I'd recommend this tough little vest.

GWP. Family pet. I bought the vest for my young, rambunctious GWP to wear when he accompanies me mountain biking here in the woods of the Pacific Northwest.

It gives me peace of mind knowing he is wearing himself out in a fairly safe manner. Thanks!

"It is very easy to put on and take off"

By: Julie Righter From PA

Hunts. Prior to purchasing the Sylmar Body Guard Dog Vest, our GSP acquired a nasty laceration on her chest while out in the field. We used the Sylmar Body Guard Dog Vest to protect her injury while it healed, prevent her from licking or scratching it, and look forward to continued use out in the field to prevent any other injuries. It is very easy to put on and take off, especially with a high-energy, excitable dog and breathable for warmer temperatures. Very pleased with this product.

German Shorthair. Hunts. My 7 month old German Shorthair tore a 4 inch gash in her chest while hunting in the brush. I bought the Sylmar body guard vest to protect her underside. It has worked great. Plus the orange color makes her much more visible. The straps on the back make good handles for lifting her over a fence. The only problem I've had is the straps on the back getting hooked on barbed wire.

Hunts. Family pet. Quality is good. Full chest protection is good. Durable material. Fits way better than the neoprene, but still needed lots of alteration to fit. The armholes are too small, but at least it is shaped generally like a dog. Since I can't buy a insulated vest for a really big outdoors dog, I lined this one with insulated fleece. Was pretty conducive to that.

German Shorthaired Pointer. Hunts. Family pet. After two hunts with this vest I do believe it is indestructible. The length and fit around the chest are the best of any vest i have seen. But I should have gone with my first thoughts and bought the vest with the sleeves. The leg openings are so big that after a days hunt my dog has no hair left on his chest where exposed. I have ordered the Cordura material and found myself trying to sew a pair of sleeves for the remainder of our Pheasant season.

    Sylmar Body Guard Vest Tan Sylmar Body Guard Vest Yellow Body Guard Dog Vest Detail


    Want a Body Guard Dog Vest with a Neoprene Liner for additional insulation?

    The Sylmar Body Guard Dog Vest gives your dog additional chest and body protection with increased visibility at a distance and in cover. Can also be used post-injury or surgery to protect the chest, belly or flanks from licking, chewing or scratching. Bandages can be covered and made secure. Also excellent for itchy hot spots or nipple problems. The three straps over the top can be used to assist older dogs to their feet.

    Construction Materials:

    ORANGE -- Rip-stop 500 denier cordura nylon with an additional layer of 500 denier cordura nylon for the chest and body plate.

    CAMO -- 500 denier camo material (not rip stop) with an additional layer of 1000 denier cordura nylon for the chest and body plate.

    We recommend a break in period for the Body Guard Vest before extended use. The more use the vest receives the softer it will become, yet it will maintain its toughness and durability because of the rip stop material. Hand washing will also help to soften the material.

    Sizing: (based on dog's girth*)

    X-Small -- 20" - 24" (approx. 15-25 lbs.)
    Small -- 24" - 27" (approx. 25-35 lbs.)
    Medium -- 27" - 31" (approx. 35-50 lbs.)
    Large -- 31" - 36" (approx. 50-75 lbs.)
    X-Large -- 36" - 42" (approx. 75-90 lbs.)
