You’re walking around with a Pitbull or a Rottweiler, you know the guy can take care of himself. But that little Terrier, or that fluffy Pomeranian? They’re just a juicy target for any would-be predator. Sure, you can walk alongside your Poodle, but what if you want him to go for a run by himself? He could be in the jaws of a wild Coyote before you know it. At least, that’s what happened to the creators of the CoyoteVest, pictured above, and their little dog was never seen again. That’s when they decided to create this prickly vest, meant to be worn by dogs up to 20 pounds. The neck is studded with twelve 1″ spikes, firmly embedded in a stiff yet flexible triple laminated Kevlar® collar. The rest of the body is protected with a “stab-resistant layer of Kevlar® body armor that can resist sharp canine teeth.” There’s an optional set of quills that you can stick on the back of your dog, and even more impressively, there’s even an optional CoyoteZapper that lets you pretty much Taser whichever animal is biting your pet. You can think of the CoyoteVest as body armour for your pet, and at $109 for the Starter Pack, it’s not outrageously priced.
