The K9 S.O.S harness is designed to be used for search and rescue missions. Aimed to provide comfort and security for the K9 as wells as simplicity of use for the handler.

K9 S.0.S's bright and bold design is equipped to be adaptable to any disaster situation. With features such as a hidden collatable backpack, adjustable leash, modular pouches, ID tags, orange hi vis colour scheme, smart material considerations, shoulder-mounted torches and camera mount. Improving the efficiency and success of a search and rescue operation while maintaining the security and comfort of the K9.

Funnily enough, the project originally started as an earthquake aftermath kit. Through design development and idea conceptualisation, the project evolved into a K9 search and rescue harness, showing there are endless possibilities from an initial spark.

A picture is worth a thousand words. But a model can tell a thousand stories.
