Frequently Asked Questions
What size is the CoyoteVest / SpikeVest?
The CoyoteVest and SpikeVest are available in several different sizes. The most important dimension is the length of the back. The length of the back determines which vest you should get. Once you select the correct size, based on back length, the collar and the waist are very adjustable and should accommodate most shapes and sizes. So all you have to do is measure the length of the back from the Base of the Neck to Before the Tail -- make sure the dog is standing up and not sitting.
Once you know the length choose the correct size vest from this chart:
The orange lines represent where the vest ends. The green bars represent where the dogs tail is depending on back length. You typically want the vest to end before the dogs tail, however the end of the vest can be rolled up a little bit to accommodate a slightly shorter back.
Here are the other dimensions for reference.

Washing and Care Instructions
If the vest gets dirty you can wipe it by hand with water or a mild detergent and lay it out flat to air dry. Do not wash it in a machine!
The CoyoteVest contains genuine stab-resistant Dupont Kevlar ® which is sensitive to UV radiation and will break down over time. To increase the life of the Kevlar do not store the CoyoteVest in direct sunlight.
If you remove the CoyoteWhiskers store them carefully so they won't get distorted. We suggest leaving them on the vest and then hanging the vest on the wall with a CoyoteClip.

How does the CoyoteZapper work?
NOTE: The original CoyoteZapper is currently no longer available. We are working on a new design and hope to re-introduce it in the near future.
The CoyoteZapper uses a dog training collar that was originally designed to shock your dog in the neck for training purposes. The electrical shock is harmless but painful and is only delivered when you push a button on a wireless remote control. The CoyoteZapper insulates the training collar so that it does not shock your dog on the neck and your dog will feel nothing when you push the button on the remote. Instead, the voltage is directed to electrically conductive cloth rails that are mounted along the length of the vest. Anything that is touching both of the rails at the same time will feel the shock.
