The small had gotten too tight around his ribs and was uncomfortable for Sensei so I purchased a medium size yet it’s too loose at it’s smallest adjustment.

This was a phenomenal experience! I’ve never needed a service animal before but with being diagnosed with Anxiety and various other things I started looking into finding a puppy and training it for my service anima. This registry is simple and easy to use and gives me the piece of kind that I need to be able to take my new little one with me! Thank you!

The mesh vest fits perfectly and will be cool for summer. The tags have all the correct information on them and look very official. It’s a relief to know my Emotional Support Dog is registered and I can feel confident, wherever I go, because his papers are official and in order. The online support was very helpful. Thank you.
