THE ORIGINAL Skid Plate for dogs

Unlike other dog chest and belly protectors on the market, the Skid Plate is made to last and fit properly. The Skid Plate protects your dog’s chest, stomach, and side areas that are hardest hit when in the field and is a commercial grade dog chest protector that can help prevent injuries to your best friend and costly visits to the veterinarian.

When considering a chest/belly protector to purchase for your working or sporting dog, don't settle for anything less! The Skid Plate helps protect your dog's vital areas from injuries while in the field. What is a more important consideration than protecting your dog's chest and belly area? Nothing! Only the best will do.

Product Highlights:

  • Functionality and durability are the key benefits of the Skid Plate.
  • Unlike other chest protectors on the market, the Skid Plate is made to last. 
  • Recommended by veterinarians to protect post-surgical wounds.
  • Designed with the dog in mind, The Skid Plate offers high visibility and total mobility with an open back to avoid overheating.
  • Two layers of water resistant 1000 denier Cordura® nylon for extreme durability and protection from the worst abrasions, cuts and punctures the field has to offer.
  • Adjustable strap system made of rugged nylon webbing with quick release polymer buckles, slide adjusters and steel center ring to ensure the Skid Plate stays on while providing the best possible fit.
  • Please use the link below for sizing instructions. For a more accurate fit, be sure to measure your dog's chest and waist.

I have used Mendota skid plates from Texas to Montana and points in between. They can be adjusted to fit well and they afford a great deal of protection from sharp twigs and rough grasses to cactus to burrs. They are durable and well made and are the best product of their type that I have found.

Why would a dog possibly need something like this?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Skid plates are often used by hunting dogs to protect their under side from running through the brush and brambles. Chuck B. Staff
Could this skid plate offer protection from snake bites to the areas it covers?
blind_ninja on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I personally do not know. However, I note (quoting a description on the dogIDs website) that Mendota skid plates are constructed from “two layers of water resistant 1000 denier Cordura® nylon.” The Tongs website (they identify themselves as the “World’s leader in snake handling equipment”) states that their 1000 denier DuPont Cordura nylon chaps “are so tough they’re guaranteed to be snake proof.” Similarly, the specification for Rattlers brand snake proof chaps states that they are “1000 denier nylon-snake proof” and “puncture proof.” I found several other products on the Internet that were described as being snake proof and made with 1000 denier Cordura nylon. This certainly suggests that the Mendota product, with two layers of Cordura, would likewise be snake proof. However, I cannot offer more (except that I really like the skid plates and have several). You might want to speak with either the manufacturer of the skid plates or the manufacturer of 1000 denier Cordura nylon.

Fits my field lab great
This is a great vest for my field lab! It is highly visible with the blaze orange straps and really protects her under side well. It is easy to clean. Would recommend to any upland hunter.

This is the only trainer we found that can have a tone for both collars vs a tone for one and shock for the other. Our dogs just need the little reminder to get back to business and rarely need the shock and it was great to find this option in one remote control.
