With all of the threads posted lately based onthe Petsmart rant, i was wondering if their is anywhere to get a vest for the dog that says "IN TRAINING please dont pet" or something along those lines? We're not training for SAR or therapy so it doesnt have to be a professonal thing, but maybe it will help people to understand i dont want my dog pet or bothered when im trying to teach her to igrnoe strangers and not be fearful, but this would work a lot better if people would stop rushing her in public. Yes i know my fault, i shouldnt have "such a beautiful little angel" LOL but it doesnt mean she needs to be touched by all of you!

So anyway, is their any place i could get a vest doesnt matter what color it is, so long as it says something 'training please dont pet me" or whatever, just so i can work my dog around people without her being bothered and me not having to say please dont pet her every two seconds?

i think it was 3K9Mom who posted the link to activedogs.com and said they had great customer service - they have a some patches, 'young dog in training' and 'do not pet'.

(i'm debating getting a weighted vest for luc, so i keep wandering around that website)

Ailyn,

The company Guardian Gear makes a simple, well-designed reflective vest that comes in bright yellow and bright orange with reflective striping. They're under $15 and perfect for what you're looking for.

They don't have "Do not Pet" signs on them, BUT there are tons of easy ways to put the text onto a vest - you can have it embroidered at any embroidery shop, use heat-transfer letters, or put on "Do Not Pet" patches that any working dog / service dog supplier sells.

It would be a much cheaper alternative than the more expensive service dog vests that are out there and probably would work really well for you.

That site is SOOO expensive!!! You can find sites with vest that are of the same quality or better for half that price!
