Poor quality vest - by , March 25, 2011
3/ 3stars
Overall I am happy and great full with the help I received in getting certified. As for the vest I think the quality is poor and cheaply made as the front strap can easily choke my little guy if he were to tug on the leash. There is no chest support to the harness/vest. I expected better quality for the money I spent.

Not good because I registered my dog as a Rescue Dog and you sent me Emotional Support Registration after I paid for Rescue Dog, Also can't print because you can not reduce registration to fit letter size on printer 8x10. I hope you will take care of this issue.
