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.[imgclear]
Good luck trying to shank this POLICE DOG. That’s a stab-proof vest it’s wearing. $US1000.[imgclear]
With this rappel sling, POLICE DOGS can indulge in their wildest Batdog fantasies as they descend down buildings. $US160.[imgclear]
POLICE DOG WITH A CAMERA RIG STRAPPED TO HIS BACK. AWESOME. $US7900.[imgclear]
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.[imgclear]
Combat Canines are pretty awesome on their own. When they carry their own gear, they enter a whole new realm of excellence. $US130.[imgclear]
No further comment necessary. $US20.[imgclear]
