Remembering those who have sacrificed everything for our freedom...Thank you!


Just finished up a prototype Tracking vest for my dog Koda. It's loosely based on the COMVest, but for smaller dogs. We'll be training for the next couple months, so it will be a good opportunity to work out any bugs before we offer a version of it on the website.


A heartfelt thank you, to all military personnel for the sacrifices you and your families have made for our freedoms. 04/09/2015

I was forwarded this and thought you all would enjoy.

Sergeant Stubby (1916 or 1917 – April 4, 1926), was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat. America's first war dog, Stubby, served 18 months 'over there' and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and even once caught a German spy by the seat of his pants (holding him there til American Soldiers found him).


Thank you to all who have served. We truly appreciate your service!

In Memory of Moka

The idea for ForceK9 started shortly after making a vest for Moka. He was certainly the best little buddy to have around when designing and sewing…he didn't mind me hanging fabric and webbing on him so he quickly became the official "dog model" when building small dog vests. His spirit was strong and is woven though out my family and this company.

We lost him due to a vicious attack with coyotes while protecting his kennel mate Cowboy in the yard. He had a spirit greater than himself and in true warrior fashion demonstrated that spirit Sunday night. He was going to protect his family from these invaders no matter what happened. He fought a valiant battle that night and he made sure he came home to us…there was no way he would let those damn coyotes take him away.

We all worked very hard to save him that night and for a time at the Vet hospital we thought he'd pull through. He was one strong, tough SOB and had survived many tough scrapes. Sadly in the end his injuries were far too great and that big heart and spirit became tired…he just wanted to go home, curl up on his favorite chair and rest from the big fight and be with the family he loved.

And in the end isn't that what we all want...To go's really all about family. We will truly miss his big heart and spirit.

Currently working on two Medical K9 Kits: The first is a compact, field, K9 trauma system (IFAK).

K9 CTS: Compact Trauma System (pictured)

A Compact Trauma System designed and developed
specifically for the field Operator/Handler and their K9
partner for high-speed treatment of major hemorrhaging
due to gunshot, blast or stab wounds.

Now you can provide lifesaving field treatment when
Veterinary care is not immediately available when
operating in Military or Law Enforcement environments.

The second is a larger Medical Kit for the operator/handler
for use with Wound Treatment, Immobilization and Environmental Management and Personal Protection.

Both pieces of kit meet the highest standards and most demanding needs for every day missions and many of it's pieces are designed to be interchangeable between the Operator and the trusted K9 partner.

What would you like to see included in a K9 Trauma Kit?
