This Family-owned Business Makes Fashionable Pet Body Armor to Keep Small Dogs Safe From Predators

Small dogs are always threatened by the big ones, or birds of prey. Small dogs know how to act tough, but still they need some additional protection sometime. One family-owned business in San Diego designed some really cool vests for them to help in these moments of need. Paul Mott, Pamela Mott, and Nicole Mellom (of CoyoteVest) design “pet body armor,” a line of harnesses and vests that feature tall bristles and spikes.

These awesome vests keep the predators away, and make the dogs look really cool in it as well. This idea came from a personal experience they had. Unfortunately, they lost their dog to tragical fight with a coyote. In order to prevent this accident from happening to other families they created the CoyoteWhiskers vest.


This pet body armor that protects small dogs from coyotes, aggressive dogs, and birds of prey.

Something cool about the vests is that they come paired with brightly colored, lightweight nylon bristles attach to the top of it and harnesses with Velcro, acting as a hedgehog spike-like shield. Even thought the whiskers look quite sharp, they can’t harm predators. The main purpose is to irritate the eyes and mouth of an attacker.


CoyoteVest sells the whiskers, vest, harness and spiked collar in different colors. On their collection you can find “Hawkeyes” as well. They are a printed visual that makes your pet look like they have eyes on their back.

Same Crocodile, Same Place 15 Years Apart- Steve Irwin’s Son Recreates His Father’s Most Iconic Photo

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
