I bought this product for our Black Lab. It fit him perfectly and it does the job of preventing him from getting scrapes and abrasions from brush when we have him out in the fields. I would recommend this item to anyone who has a hunting or active dog. Best vest by far.

Bought this for our 3 year old Weimaraner (about 80 pounds) for pheasant hunting in S.D. He had a run in with a barb wire fence last year and cut his chest up a bit (though he seemed to figure it out this year) so hoping this Chest Protector will help avoid any future cuts and scrapes. He has worn it twice already while just out for a hike in the woods. He doesn't seem to mind it at all. It fits him snugly almost like I'd think a Thunder jacket would except around the neck. A few inches too big but as he has really short fur, I can see where a dog with longer fur would need the extra space around the neck. The Velcro is great, stays flat on his back, and doesn't bunch up. Husband wasn't happy when I bought it online (as we have tried others without success; too tubular and not contoured at the waist for a streamline fit) but now hubby says "I am surprised how well it fits his body. Order a few more!"

Wrap around neoprene vest not a true chest protector-- no hard surface belly. Fit finish good so 4 stars as vest. 4-5 mm vests are stiff and hamper leg movement unless fit just right. This softer so more ease of movement trade off.
Since shepherds have hvy coat go with XL. These stretch a bit but don't want too snug unless using dog in water retrieves. Then snug cuts drag. 74 is light for shepherd so I'm guessing a pup 12 mo or so. If that guess is right she'll grow into it if loose. FYI this product is really a thin hunting vest & cut pretty much same. It has some adjust by overlapping the Velcro. Come XXL in some brands.

My male German short haired pointer is 80lbs an the xl vest fits him good. The neck is alittle loose. I also bought a large for my female that I tried on him an it fit but its shorter from head to tail. So I think the large is what you want. My female is 63 lbs.

XL would probably work best for you.
