The K9 Guard
Learn what makes our jackets different.
LIGHT IN WEIGHT, STRONG IN PROTECTION.
Our jackets are made of high quality, durable Polyester with thermoplastic polyurethane – waterproof membrane (DINTEX). The three Kevlar material inserts, located in the neck piece and body of the jacket, provide bite protection to help mitigate risk of injury when your dog is out on a walk, hike or at a dog park.
The K9 Guard Jacket is durable enough to withstand a rough romp through the forest or a day at the beach, and will also keep your dog stylishly safe in city dog parks. The athletic design allows your dog to move and run freely, while the Kevlar inserts provide the protection needed to minimize the risk of serious injury.
DINTEX – WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE.
DINTEX Thermoplastic Polyurethane Membrane is a special waterproof and windproof membrane engineered with a state of the art technology guaranteed to keep your pet dry and comfortable. Suitable for all, DINTEX provides an impenetrable layer to prevent water and wind form coming in while keeping the highest levels of breathability.
WHY KEVLAR MATERIAL?
We chose to use Kevlar material to reinforce our Protective Dog Jackets because it has been proven time and time again to be one of the most reliable cut proof, puncture proof (and now bite proof!) materials on the market. Kevlar is used to reinforce everything from bullet and stab proof vests for military and police protective clothing, to racing tires, nautical reinforcement etc. It is also very lightweight and durable, making it a perfect choice for use in protective clothing.
From DuPont, the manufactures of Kevlar:
“Kevlar material is an advanced technology from DuPont that helps transform ordinary products into extraordinary ones. It combines high strength with light weight, durability and protection. Products made with Kevlar material —from protective apparel and sports equipment to automotive armor—help those who use them to do more, go farther, and be even better at what they do.
Kevlar material is five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis, yet, at the same time, is lightweight, flexible and has many uses. It is this unique combination of attributes that enable those who use it to realize success, to perform to their fullest potential and to achieve their personal best. Kevlar fabric is also used in making bullet and stab resistant vests not only used by the military and law enforcement agencies around the world, but by private citizens as well.”
We are confident that the materials and design of our Protective Jacket will satisfy the dog owner’s need for #ProtectedPlay for their Dogs, whether it be walking down the street, at a local park or hiking in the wilderness!
