Problem with Sportsman werehouse Dog vest

4 posts in this topic

I purchased this for my 10 year old lab because it had the floats. The bottom has a protective plastic, and it looks to have rubbed on his arm pits and make them verry sensative. Almost like they were cutting him

Has anyone had this problem with this vest?

Most everyone that has this vest has the same problem. Avery makes the same vest and I bought one years ago... quit using it because of the same issue. 2 of my buddies bought the same vest the following year... they had the same problem... then we found out you can trim the arm holes to whatever size works. We cut them a couple inches longer around the arm pit area and 'wha-la!', no more problems! Just take a Sharpie marker, mark out where you need to trim it to when it's on the dog, take it off and use a very sharp utility knife and trim it to the right size hole.

Good Luck!

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
