There are 2 important factors that are needed to know before determining which vest size will fit your dog: The circumference of dog's torso and their total weight. Measure the circumference (or girth) around your dog's torso from the top front shoulder down and around the deepest part of torso back around. A cloth tape measure is recommended.

Do weights come with the vest?
The XDOG weight vest comes with empty weight bags. We recommend filling them using sand, bb pellets or polly pellets which can be purchased on EBay, Amazon or online stores.
How does the weight go on the vest?
The bags are removable from the vest and can be inserted in the vest pouches on both sides and front shoulder areas of the vest. The bags are high quality nylon that open at one end allow you to insert sand in them and are sealed with a velcro. The bag is then inserted in the pouch on the vest. The bags are securely snug inside each pouch.
We do not use metal bar weights as they can be more dangerous and can cause injury to your dog if fallen or landing incorrectly. Bar weights can cause more pressure on your dog and most importantly don't couture with your dog's body during movement like sand does.
How much additional weight does the vest weight when the sandbags are fully loaded?
The weight vest was designed to add an additional 5%-10% of your dog's body weight. When the vest is fully loaded with all sandbags filled expect the results below.
XS - 560 grams – 2.26 kilos
Small -1.24 kilos – 1.36 kilos
Med - 1.92 kilos- 2.04 kilos
Large – 3.28 kilos – 3.4 kilos
XL – 5.10 – 5.21 kilos
Is it possible to add more weight?
Yes, we've had customers replace the sand with copper bb's. This will add 3-5x more additional weight then using sand.
Is the vest waterproof?
Yes, the vest is made of waterproof material. We do not recommend adding any weights to a vest if your dog is expected to swim or jump in water. Please monitor your dog at all times if wearing a vest in water.
What age can my dog start to wear the vest?
From 1 year old.
