7 Tools To Build The World's Greatest Police Dog

Contrary to popular believe, DOGS (of either the WAR or POLICE variety) are not impervious to bullets. And yet, man's best friend still throws caution to the wind in order to serve and protect.

In honour of these proud beasts -- for whom Super Bowl MVP and True American Hero Ben Roethlisberger just bought some swank kevlar vests in Montgomery County, Maryland -- here are seven pieces of awesome gear to create an unstoppable K-9 dog.

RAM Muzzle

If you take this little guy's muzzle off, he will, in fact, tear off your face and wear it as if it were his own. $US100.

Stab-Proof Vest

Good luck trying to shank this POLICE DOG. That's a stab-proof vest it's wearing. $US1000.

Rappel Sling

With this rappel sling, POLICE DOGS can indulge in their wildest Batdog fantasies as they descend down buildings. $US160.

Mounted K9 Camera System

POLICE DOG WITH A CAMERA RIG STRAPPED TO HIS BACK. AWESOME. $US7900.

Dog Boots

Pooch In Boots > Puss In Boots. 'Nuff Said. $US65.

K9 Storm Intruder Vest

Actually, dogs wearing cameras never gets old. It wouldn't be a canine gear post without the image that started it all, so here's a German Shepherd wearing a K-9 Storm Intruder Vest, complete with camera and antenna. Oh, and it's designed for amphibious operations. Again, awesome. $US30,000.

Modular Harness System

Combat Canines are pretty awesome on their own. When they carry their own gear, they enter a whole new realm of excellence. $US130.

Doggles

No further comment necessary. $US20.
