    Default Winter Dog Vest

    Ive seen some pictures of dogs getting rubbed raw from wearing a neoprene dog vest. I'm hunting this winter and will need one for my dog. Can I get some recommendations? Do they make them in white?

    They do make them in white, for camo I like the Avery boater vest. I have never seen a dog get rubbed raw from a vest, the important thing is to trim the vest in places to get the optimal fit for your dog.

    Rubbed where? Don't worry about the color....worry about your hide.

    Avery---tried several. Worth getting the one with handles (slits to haul your dawg aboard a boat) even if you don't have a boat. very handy. Good luck, keep your dog up and out of the water despite the vest.

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    I also recommend the Avery Boaters Parka. My MBL wears it from Oct 1st thru the end of NOV and I have never had an issue with rubbing, but I did trim it when I bought it. The handles for picking him up into a boat are perfect.
