special vest that pet owners are buying is called CoyoteVest. It is protective jacket that was designed to protect small dogs from coyotes. coyote is wild dog that is similar to wolf. It is common across North America. The CoyoteVest has variety of spikes and other sharp things on it to protect pet.
