EZ Dog Walker's Vest.

Walk You Pets With Style and Ease

Why am I introducing the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest to everyone?
As a regular dog walker and dog lover, this project is truly from the heart.  I would always get frustrated trying to juggle the waste bags, hang on to the leash, carry my water bottle, worry about cars not seeing me during the early morning dog walks when it’s still dark outside, carrying dog treats, carrying my other personal items, etc.
So I designed the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest as a practical solution to solve these frustrations, making my dog walks am enjoyable, fuss-free experience.  With all the vest’s unique pockets and pocket sizes, there’s room to carry everything I need not only for my dog, but for my personal items, like my cell phone, mace, ID, etc.
What a great testimonial from Kim L.

What a great testimonial from Kim L.

Here’s a first-hand account from a client who was one of the first to receive, and regularly use, the prototype EZ Dog Walker’s Vest.

     “I own one of these vests and love it! Allows me to carry my wallet, phone, water, poop bags, treats & keys. Everything I need safely stored while we walk.”

Kim L. 

Research and Development.
Over the past year, I’ve been researching other dog accessory products, and I found there wasn’t anything even close to the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest.  All I could find was unattractive fanny packs or bulky and heavy jackets.  So I went to work and started to design the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest. After much feedback and fine-tuning of the designs, I produced the first workable prototype.  The prototype testing started with several dog walking and dog training professionals, as well as family and friends.  Their feedback was invaluable, and the consensus was, “Roll out the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest to everyone.”
I was fortunate to find Fund Dreamer to help go viral and spread the word.  I am seeking to raise $7,000 to get the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest into production. This will enable me to place the least required production order that our vendor requires.  And for each $30 pledge, you will receive an EZ Dog Walker’s Vest in your choice of 3 colors (black, tan and light gray), and your choice of uni-sex sizes S, M, L, and X-LG.
What are the features and benefits of the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest?
The EZ Dog Walker’s  Vest holds essential dog walking tools for dog walkers and their dogs. The vest packs safety, comfort and convenience into one unique lightweight garment, allowing freedom of movement while carrying everything you need.  Dog walkers slip on the vest ready-equipped, any time day or night, for routine dog walks and other dog outings.
  • Custom-designed vest, all-in-one, light-weight, machine-washable.
  • For you and your dog’s safety, the vest features several Reflective safety strips on the front and back so cars can see you walking when it’s dark outside.
  • Stylish and sporty, available in 3 popular colors: red, tan and light gray.
  • Designed in uni-sex sizes of S, M, L, and X-L, for men and women — striking a perfect balance of style, function and form.
  • Features a total of 13 custom-sized pockets and compartments sealed with zippers; 3 pockets feature hook clips; 2 mesh pockets designed to carry dog water bottle and water bottle for dog walker.
  • Carries every dog walking tool needed for dog walks or other dog outings (i.e., waste bags, dog water bottle, collapsible water bowl, a Velcro strip so that you can place your personal patch (i.e., I love my Lab, etc.) on it, dog treats, dog safety repellent, etc.), as well as personal dog walker items (your cell phone, house key, ID card, water bottle, hand wipes, etc.).
  • Perfect to wear in warm weather, or easy to slip on over winter coat in cold weather.
  • Invaluable asset for those who make movement a lifestyle.
  • In comparison to retail stores carrying pocketed fishing or hunting outdoor vests they market as dog walker vests, the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest is uniquely for dog walkers as it less bulky, more practical and more affordable.
  • Our research and development team extensively interviewed dog walkers and dog accessory retailers, and dog owners will invest up to $40 for a specialty garment to help make their dog walking and dog training experiences more enjoyable.
  • The tool vest is also perfect for regular walkers, hikers and bicycle riders to equip and carry all the essentials.
With the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest, you can bring as much or as little as you like, depending on the length and scope of your outing. No more fumbling, or juggling, as each item is securely clipped on or zippered into vest pockets for a totally care free dog walking adventure.
Here is the first prototype of the front and back of the vest.  This is not the latest design because we have made some excellent improvements to some of the pockets, the length of the vest, etc., based on feedback from our testers.
Prototype of front of vest.  I equipped my prototype with a dog waste bag canister and mace.  I carry my cell phone in the front pocket, dog treats, and my ID.
I equip my vest with dog waste bag canisters, mace, dog treats, water bottles, my cell phone, cash, business cards, etc.
Prototype of back of vest.  I equipped my prototype with a dog water bottle and my bottle water.
I am grateful that Fund Dreamer allows me to share my invention with audiences I would never have been able to reach before. The Internet now allows inventors to share their work with a vast new audience.  By making this project open to Fund Dreamer support, it can become bigger than I could ever hope to make it by myself.  I hope people get as excited about the EZ Dog Walker’s Vest as they do with other dog accessories, and that it changes the way dog walkers and dog trainers experience their dog outings.

Introducing Two ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions for Pets



Introducing Two ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions for Pets

kissable breath foam and water additive combo 

Santa Monica, CA October 28, 2013 – Do you brush your dog’s teeth? We didn’t think so! Don’t worry, you’re not alone. More than 60% of dog owners never brush their dog’s teeth. The main reason is that it’s just too difficult.

To help improve the state of canine oral hygiene Kissable has launched two new ‘Brushless’ Dental Solutions to make dental care easy for the owner and painless for the pooch. Instant Fresh Breath Foam adheres to teeth to gently clean, sanitize and loosen plaque build-up without using a toothbrush!  Oral Care Water Additive is a super-easy-to-administer liquid. Just add a capful to your pet’s water. No toothbrush required.


Instant Fresh Breath Foam


This all natural breath foamer combines the deodorizing powers of baking soda and peppermint with the anti-bacterial power of aloe vera. All promote excellent oral cleanliness which results in fresher breath. The sweet-tasting minty foam immediately adheres to teeth to gently clean, sanitize and loosen plaque build-up without using a toothbrush| 8oz


Oral Care Water Additive


Helps loosen plaque build-up and freshens breath while your pet drinks from the water bowl. Just add a capful to your pet’s drinking water when you refill the bowl and the ingredients in the product do the rest. When the pet drinks from their water bowl, the liquid will pass over the teeth and gums leaving behind ingredients that promote fresh breath and oral cleanliness| 16oz

It’s not heavy so its perfect for the fall but can also be layered over heavier clothes. It also has a spot for water bottles in the back and the ability to clip something to it as well, love this vest!”

OPPD K-9 Handlers stay busy fighting crime year-round

Each year, the Overland Park Police Department’s Canine Unit (K-9 teams) gets busier and busier with patrol and tactical responses. In fact, in 2012 the team was deployed 272 times, according to Officer and K-9 Trainer Cory Flaming. This ranges from a vehicle stop to a search warrant, or even a large event.

The OPPD Canine Unit also had 127 Patrol Deployments during 2012 which include Criminal Apprehension Utilization like tracks, building searches, felony car stops, area searches, etc. In addition, there were 145 Detection Deployments, which are Narcotics/Explosive searches.

Established in 1989, the OPPD K-9 team is currently assigned to the Emergency Services Section within the OPPD. The department currently has three Police Service Dog (PSD) teams; Officer Justin Doherty with K-9 Deuce, a 10-year old Belgium Malinois certified in narcotics detection and patrol, Officer Ben Hardin with K-9 Cezar, a 6-year old German Shepherd certified in narcotics detection and patrol, and Officer K-9 Trainer Cory Flaming with K-9 Mack, a 3-year old Belgium Malinois certified in explosive detection and patrol. The K-9 Handlers are cross trained in each of these disciplines and respond not only with their assigned K-9’s but also must be qualified to serve as a SWAT/WMD Operator.

Canine handlers must care for their K-9 partner 24 hours a day, so they stay at home with them. Because they are not considered pets, they are kenneled while away from work at the handler’s home. Yet the city pays for a large outdoor and indoor kennel which is installed at the handler’s residence.

When an officer wants to become a canine handler, they go through a new hiring process within the department. It includes a resume, physical, and several interviews including family and neighbors. Once passed, they must also complete a 10-week basic course with their assigned K-9. At the end of the course, they must also pass a difficult certification which is then repeated annually.

As a special service to our local area, all K-9 Teams provide K-9 demonstrations on a regular basis for organizations such as “Pet Pals” at the Deanna Rose Farmstead or “Paws in the Park” at Shawnee Mission Park. As local residents, we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team to assist us in effectively fighting crime in our community.
