product information

These small, lightweight dog warning vests are printed with a standard warning from the list or a personalised message of your choice. Use these bibs to communicate a message or warning to other people while out and about and on dog walks.

Perfect for dogs who are in training, have special needs, temperament issues, are recovering from an operation or injury, are shy or nervous, dogs with allergies or special dietary requirements who should not be fed, and so on.

Available in a choice of two high visibility (high-vis) colours or four standard colours. These warning vests are waterproof and comfortable to wear.

dog in training vest

Standard wording choices include:

No treats please
Please give me some space
Back off please, I'm training
I'm nervous, please do not pat me
I'm a deaf dog
Visually Impaired
I need a forever home

Or select to have your own customised wording and type what you would like on your dog's vest.

The elasticated neck (approximately in the same position as your dog’s collar) allows for ease of movement and comfort when the dog sits or lies down. The bottom of the bib is a strong webbing strap with clip buckle underneath for adjustment to your dog's girth. The strap should be fastened behind the front legs for a comfortable fit.

Fully adjustable and can be worn alone or on top of a coat in cold weather. They can also be worn over most types of dog harness (depending on how far up the back the harness sits).

Please note that, although we have been generous with the number of characters allowed, the more text you have the smaller the text will be.

Message clothing should not replace good dog training but they can be useful if your dog has specific issues or during a time in their life where they need a little good grace.


Please measure your dog to get the correct fit. Measure along your dog's back from the bottom of their collar to the point on the back which lies above the back of their front legs (please see the illustration).dog vest - where to measure

Problem solved for the summer
Tuesday, 3 July 2018  |  Naomi

Walks with my two dogs had become a nightmare. My girl has always been fearful of other dogs and usually barks at any other dogs while we're out. This has made our walks quite stressful. I was always worried about people letting their dogs get too close to her (she's always on a lead, but this doesn't seem to compute with many other owners). The warning she is now wearing on her vest (she has one of the coats for the cooler weather) has brought her problem to their attention, thus making our walks much less stressful for both me, her and her brother.
I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to highlight certain traits to fellow walkers.
It was a bonus that the coat was supplied quickly and the size for Lulu's breed was spot on.
Many Thanks!

Dog Warning Vest "Rescue Dog, do not approach"
Sunday, 10 June 2018  |  Jeannette

This is brilliant for my rescue Dalmation. Due to his abuse before our adoption he is terrified of strangers and will bite. He has a bright red "caution" chain and also wears a muzzle but people still approach and judge him and me without knowing the details. Since purchasing the vest he seems calmer and people now give him the space and take the time to acknowledge him at a distance. Thank you 🐶

Great vest
Wednesday, 30 May 2018  |  Nigel

Bought for our deaf albino Great Dane who as you can imagine attracts a lot of attention. Due to his deafness he can be a little skittish if approached from behind and the "Keep your distance" vest works wonders.

Lovely warning vest, fits well-I ordered a medium and it looks great on my bedlington terrier.
Great quality and really stands out. Love the option to put your own information onto the vest.
I would recommend!

Great Idea
Friday, 23 March 2018  |  Gilly

My boy is blind in 1 eye and doesn't see very well with the other and on walks seems to always walk in front of people coming towards him and this vest has been brilliant as people are a lot more understanding. It it very easy to put on and stays in place.

Dog Warning Bunting
Saturday, 3 March 2018  |  Marilyn

My 6 Month Wire Hair Fox Terrier broke her neck and has had to have major surgery (3 screws and cement) to reconstruct her neck.

After 4 months of rehabilitation she is allowed to meet other dogs on a lead.

The vest (Medical Alert Neck Injury) alerts other dog owners to be cautious.

The vest is well made and elevates any nervousness when walking in the park.

Thank you

Doggie vest
Saturday, 9 December 2017  |  Susan

We’re so pleased with our custom doggie vest. The size is perfect and adjustable. It’s got our own message on the vest “support dog” which was just what we needed. Highly recommend.
