    A while back someone (I want to say SitStay but I'm not sure) posted in a thread a link to a purple vest that says something like don't touch/in training, and it had the bonus of not looking like a service dog vest. Anyone recall something like that?

    Thanks!

    Hmm, if it was me maybe try Freckles Designs? I think they make those types of vests, with custom colors and maybe even custom phrases. I hope that helps!

    I was just looking at these myself, and it is sitstay that has them. You can buy the plain vests [I did see purple in those] and buy the patches separately to sew on yourself. It is quite a bit cheaper that way too. I don't recall the purple on the premade ones, but I didn't look super close either. :)

    For what purpose do you want the vest?

    Usually I recommend getting a Thunder Shirt or Anxiety Wrap and putting a patch on that if you must. It's very different from a service dog vest AND actually helps if anxiety/fear is something you're trying to work on.

    I wouldn't but anything from SitStay, as they have in the past actually encouraged people to fake service dogs.

    What about using a high-visibility vest instead? I have one for Gavroche (used for night walks, not actually for training) that was locally made and it's VERY bright and VERY reflective, but doesn't look at all like a service dog vest. I think Petco even has a variation of these, and somewhere like Cabella's or Gander Mountain is bound to have them. Any place that caters to hunting dogs.

    Or try Etsy. Like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/1232631...type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all

    Or this http://www.etsy.com/listing/8455233...type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all

    Or this http://www.etsy.com/listing/8663517...ry&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all


    Or even this! http://www.etsy.com/listing/1008877...ry&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all


    Or you could try those Julius K9 vest things like Sizzle had for Revy.

    No, pretty sure she was talking about the website, as that is the website that was linked to.

    Alicia meant sitstay the user. Other posters meant the site. Confusing much? Lol

    Yeah sorry, I thought she meant the site. A friend is trying to help me make a vest for mine, where I will get patches to add to it. Maybe that's an idea, then you can have it crafted in any color you want. :D

    Ah, I like that! I'll have to bookmark it to refer people to in the future.

    I like it cause it's huge. I showed it to our trainer a while back and she thought it would be good for some of her clients.

    I just wish I wasn't so indecisive, lol. Do I want "in training" or "give me space" bolded?

    I would choose "give me space" bolded, as that's more likely to keep people away. "In training" tends to draw people in.

    I think I'll go with "give me space" too.

    I can imagine getting all the "what are you training you dog for?" etc.
