The BullyVest is halfway between a CoyoteVest and a SpikeVest except it has no collar. It uses snap buckles like the CoyoteVest but has chest and throat flaps like the SpikeVest and it's compatible with our other accessories like the CoyoteWhiskers and HawkShield. To add neck protection you can use it with a spiked collar (like one of our CoyoteCollars) or with the matching BullyHarness. Click Here to learn how the BullyHarness and BullyVest can work together.
The BullyVest is very easy to put on, offers great protection for the torso, and it works well with your existing collar or harness. You can use your existing harness over the vest or under the vest -- in the latter case there's a secure access flap for connecting your leash to the harness.
The BullyVest includes a set of 2 removable chrome spike strips for the sides of the back. The spikes are made from very hard plastic and they're not dangerous to handle, but with enough pressure they're sharp enough to hurt. The spikes provide an important line of defense but Velcro makes them easy to remove whenever you want.
The BullyVest is entirely constructed with super tough puncture resistant Cordura® fabric that can resist sharp canine teeth. It has reflective features that make your dog more visible at night and it's water repellent and there are no metal parts that can rust. It's hand-washable with a mild detergent and air dry in shade. Do not put in dryer.
Please note: If you're using the BullyVest with the BullyHarness both sizes must be the same. In this case you should first choose the correct size BullyVest based on your dogs back length and then order the same size BullyHarness.
Measure the length of the back from the shoulder to the start of the tail (do not include the neck) -- make sure the dog is standing up and not sitting. Hold the ruler straight do not bend it down over the dogs behind. We have found that measuring the back length by following the dog's back curvature can add to the length and throw off the sizing. The vests are designed with a straight back and do not have a curve to them. So when measuring, it's important that your dog is standing and you're measuring a straight shot from the front shoulder to the start of the tail without curving the measuring tape. The collar and the chest are very adjustable as we make the straps extra long. If you're purchasing a BullyVest as a gift we do offer gift cards that can help you keep your secret.
After measuring if you're still uncertain on which size to get, it's usually better to go with the smaller size. We receive more returns/exchanges with the vest being too large rather than too small.
If your still not sure we can help. Just email us your measurements and a good side-view picture of your dog and we can give our best suggestion.
