Service Dog gear is getting an upgrade! The FIDO Vest is wearable technology for all types of working dogs, but the implications for Service Dog teams is huge. Standing for “Facilitating Interactions for Dogs with Occupations,” the FIDO Vest is designed to allow Service Dogs, detector K9s, Search and Rescue K9s and other working dogs to communicate with their handler, emergency contacts or 911, depending on the needs of the team.
We all know the dangers of texting and driving. But many still use their smartphones to check their Facebook status, send a Tweet or look up something on the Internet. Please don't risk disability or death — to you or others — or your Service Dog.
