The coyote vest’s menacing exterior is made of Kevlar and Spikes and is sure to ward off any coyote or predator. It was created by Paul and Pam Mott, who lost their dog Muffy. The spikes and whiskers poke an attacker in the eyes or mouth, giving your dog a new way to ‘kick coyote butt’.
The Coyote Spikes are made from chrome plated hard plastic (metal spikes would be too heavy). The spikes are not razor sharp but they are sharp enough to hurt if you apply a lot of pressure and they play a key role in protecting your dog from predators and aggressive dogs.
The Coyote Vest will not slow your dog down or impair their ability to run and play. It only covers the critical neck and side areas where most bite wounds occur. Since it does not cover your dog’s chest area, your dog won’t get too hot wearing it.
Water will not damage the Coyote Vest and your dog can wear it in the water and swim without any trouble. The body armor works by offering multiple levels of protection. First, the large spiked collar area will prevent neck bites and deadly shaking.
Second, the vest is made from ballistic nylon reinforced with a special stab-resistant Kevlar that was originally developed by the U.S. Government for prison guard uniforms.
The Kevlar side panels prevent even the sharpest canine teeth from puncturing the vest in the primary bite zone.
