for people with hunting dogs: What is the best cold water/weather hunting vest for a dog?

I have a 1 year old chesapeake bay retriever that is in training for hunt trials as well as to hunt water fowl. He usually doesn't get cold but when breaking through ice in the water and when waiting for the next retrieve, he sometimes shivers. I want something to protect him from the cold as well as to protect his belly from getting scratched. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best vest for my needs? Thank you

5 MM neoprene with flotation aids (foam) and a skid plate material on the under side. that would be the most warmth, most protection, and most flotation on the market. most models have the built in handle, but make sure what you get has that. you can step down a grade or two depending on how much of these things you need. 3.5 MM neoprene is a little less warm, but lighter and less bulky. skid plate material is stiff and heavy. maybe if you are hunting easy stuff then you dont need it.

its important to have a good fit. the place you want to check for proper sizing is the chest. from the deepest spot in the chest, around the shoulders. that spot on the vest should be snug, but not resrtictive. you should be able to put 2 fingers between the vest and the dog.

most vests are made with extra material around the edges. you can trim these edges up to fit your dog better while leaving protection areas. if you dont feel comfortable doing this, some alterations shops will fit it for you and trim it up professionally. it will look much better than your first attempt.

i would say if your dog is a tank and cant be stopped, get him as much protection as you can. if your dog is a little more deliberate and steady....maybe a little smaller for her breed. you might be able to go a little lighter. there is such a thing as too much vest for a dog.

oh, and that shivering isnt always from the cold. look for it in early season when its warm out. mine shivers no matter what the temp is.
