Working Dog Gear

PHD students pay a deposit for the use of an in-training pack (vest). When they have fulfilled graduation requirements, they return the in-training pack and order their own custom pack, which is presented to them at  graduation. Options for packs are described below. Packs are handmade from durable, machine washable, water-resistant Denier canvas fabric.

Standard colors available for packs and floor mats are: red, turquoise, dark blue, hunter green, rust brown, and magenta.  Many additional colors are available (see color squares above):  a non-standard color may be special-ordered for a $10 upcharge. Patches for side panels of custom packs are chosen by the client. Standard options for patches are described below. Alternatively, the client may buy patches from another vendor and have them shipped directly to PHD to be sewn on the pack during manufacture. 


This pack has no metal zippers, pockets or metal clips and so does not need to be removed when going through TSA checkpoints. Minimum of two patches (sold separately, one per side panel) are required for Service Dog and Emotional Support Dog Teams. Colors are described above. Patches are described below.

Price: $39.95 + tax



This pack has two large zippered side pockets. Minimum of two patches (one per side panel, sold separately) are required for Service Dog and Emotional Support Dog Teams. Colors are described above.  Patches are described below.

Price: $59.95 + tax



This pack has two large zippered side pockets and also a reinforced, sewn-in

car harness with metal attachment ring for attaching to seat belt using a

climbing-grade carabiner clip (sold separately for $4.95 + tax).

This eliminates the need to switch from your working dog pack to a car harness

each time you load your dog into and out of your vehicle. 

Colors are described above.  Patches are described below.  

Price: $69.95 + tax


Patches must be sewn on the working dog pack during manufacture ($5.95 + tax per patch). There are two ways of getting patches: 1) order from PHD, or 2) ship your own patches to PHD. For option 2), the client MUST consult with PHD first to ensure that appropriate style patches are chosen. The client is also responsible for shipping charges and for choosing the correct size of patches. The patches shown in this catalogue cost $12.95 + tax each. Contact PHD for information about Emotional Support Dog patches (not shown here). Specify patch number and quantity when ordering. 






This comfortable floor mat is made from the same fabric as the working dog pack. It is essential gear for PHD Service Dog and Emotional Support Dog training students. Th mat provides comfort to your working dog on warm or cold floors where the dog will sit or lie for extended periods of time. The mat has an insulated layer between the two layers of Denier fabric.

Price: $39.95 + tax.

Add velcro straps + carrying handle for $12.95 + tax.


This soft strap system can be combined with either any style of the PHD working dog pack (sold separately). When ordering your pack, specify that you will be using mobility straps, because attachments must be sewn on during manufacture ($9.95 + tax for any pack). In the case of the Basic Pack or Standard Pack, a chest strap must be purchased ($9.95 + tax). Service Dog in-Training for clients who have physical mobility challenges will be taught to do mobility assistance work and tasks using these specially-designed mobility straps. Note: mobility straps are not a bracing harness. Price: $19.95 + tax. 


While not required by law, the PHD Working Dog ID Card is a helpful form of quick identification and documentation of training that offers peace of mind and easy navigation of public access challenges. Email pictures (head and shoulders only) of the working dog. Pictures must be taken against a neutral (white or off-white) background. Arrangements can be made with your instructor to  take pictures during session. ID cards are available for the following types of dogs that have been trained by PHD or an Affiliate Instructor: 1) fully-trained Service Dog, 2) Service Dog in-Training, 3) fully-trained Emotional Support Dog, 4) Emotional Support Dog in-Training, 5) fully-trained Therapy Dog, 6) Therapy Dog in Training. The ID card is the same size and material as a standard driver's licence and has  a hologram. Price: $24.95 + tax. 











While not required by law, the PHD Working Dog Work/Tasks Card eliminates the need to identify or explain your Service Dog's work or tasks. All information that can legally be asked of you is contained on this ID card with a photograph of your dog. The ID card is the same size and material as a standard driver's licence and has  a hologram. Price: $24.95 + tax.
