Doggy Armour started just over 2 years ago, my wife Rachel was just so scared of taking our dog Tilly for a walk due to the number of dogs in the area and hearing about dog on dog attacks. We had also heard about an incident where a celebrity had his dog killed whilst out walking and of course it made us realise that nowhere is safe. After spending many months, weeks and hours researching and using my contacts around the world, I managed to come up with a design for the perfect armour – light, flexible and super strong. In fact so strong that I created a bed of nails, put the jacket on top and drove my wife’s car over it, No punctures!
Growing up as a child I made net curtains during my summer holidays and although this never become my trade it certainly came in handy now. After many trials I eventually perfected the Doggy Armour jacket, custom made for every dog and one of the toughest walking armours in the world.
As for me and Rachel we both have full time jobs and Doggy Armour is created during our spare time to ensure costs are kept low. We don’t take any money from the business other than for materials and re-invest any money we do earn into donating armour around the world for anti-poaching dogs, assistance dogs and special service dogs. We love what we do and whilst it takes up so much of our time and own money there is nothing better than seeing someone being able to enjoy their walks again.
