The Skid Plate™ protects your dog’s chest, stomach, and side areas that are hardest hit when in the field! The Skid Plate™ is a commercial grade chest protector that will prevent both injuries to your dog and costly visits to the veterinarian.
Fits well and my dog wore it right away with no irritation or distress
This is the 5th Skid plate that I have purchased. I have tried several other brands and none of them compare, regardless of the price. The Mendota Skid pads are the right measure of durability, coverage, fit, ease of getting on and off your dog and price. I hunt nearly every weekend during the upland season and this product handles the usage. I recommend the Skid plate to everyone who is looking for a solution to belly protection without issues of overheating or chafing around the legs. Phil H.
I purchased a "skid plate" for my 70lb lab. I went to Mendota Pet and they helped me "size" the "skid plate" for my dog. I just returned from a week of pheasant hunting and it worked perfect!! Thanks for the great product and wonderful service!!
Just what I was looking for to protect my dog.Verynice person helped me on the phone and got the perfect fit.Thanks for the good service
We have two labs who pheasant hunt and these vests have held up. Just got another one got our sons lab!
Got one for my cocker bitch, got size small but to big on her, after 2hours unpicking stitching then cut an inch off straps and sewed back together, fits like a glove would not be without it when she's working 👍😀
So, I own 3 of these skid plates in various sizes. They are well made and hold up to just about anything. However, they are obviously made for labs and flushing dogs, not pointers. I have had 4 pointing dogs and these do not fit any of them no matter how I adjust them. Sometimes they are too long, and sometimes they hang too loose around the neck that the dog eventually gets a paw hung up in it. I would love to see some changes made to this product to make it more adjustable. 1. I think some of the nylon strapping needs to be replaced with elastic bands so it will hold the dogs body tighter. Those straps could be lined with fleece to prevent chafing. 2. The whole design needs to be narrowed. Even the smallest sizes are too wide on most of my dogs. Not everyone has a lab. :)
My dog has a pretty thin coat on his underside. This skid plate really helped
Fast , friendly, great customer service, they brought our dog right into their business to be fitted, they were like family to us.
Good. My dog put it thru some serious tests, 12 miles a day thru heavy swampy cover. Held up well.
