My pheasant hunting buddy is a field bred golden retriever. She is almost 4 years old and I bought her the Cabela's orange dog vest. It fits her good, the only problem is that near the top of her front arms/chest area it has sometimes rubbed her raw. She has beautiful thick fur, so there are times I don't put the jacket on her and she has been fine. But hunting during other seasons on public land I think it's a must to have the blaze on her, because she's colored up just like a deer. I always steer clear of other hunters, etc. but still like her to have blaze on just in case. Does anyone have a solution to stop the vest from rubbing her skin raw? Last weekend I coated the front of the leg holes with petroleum jelly as a lubricant and it seemed to help.
