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!

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
