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.

My female dog just got spayed and needed 13 stitches I was looking for something to protect her belly from her chewing on the stitches or she would have had to wear a cone which I know would have freaked her out. I found this vest and was thrilled...she had to wear her winter coat indoors it was all I had for her ,this vest saved the day for her .

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.

Can my dogs identification info be affixed to the skid vest or does she still need her collar?
Robin K on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This skid plate doesn't come with a specific place to put an ID, so we'd recommend using a collar.
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: We checked with the manufacturer. There has never been an official test used to identify if a bite from a snake would puncture the fabric. It's very strong fabric but I cannot validate protection from a snake bite. We tested it in-house with a few sharp tools and we would not recommend it to prevent snake bites.
My female lab is having pups...would this help protect her swollen, and sagging teats when I have her running in the field? Some of the areas we frequent have rusty old barbed wire fences I'm worried about.
Bob55 on Dec 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While that is not what this vest/harness is designed for. It should help to cover her teats and protect her. This vest is easily returnable so long as it is in new condition. If it doesn't do what you'd like it to do, so long as it is in new condition, you can contact our customer service team to set up a return.

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.
