From our humble beginnings with our founder's design of a mountaineering harness for his own dog to our flagship product, the MKT Vest, Cerberus K9 continues our mission of redefining the capabilities of working dog gear.
We are proud to bring you innovative solutions to problems you have defined and a better way of doing things. Built around the needs of the modern canine teams, our products are currently in use by Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Military and Wildlife Conservation, dog teams around the world.
Here you will find well-thought out products and features — designed with K9 handlers for K9 handlers that will help your team get the job done more efficiently and come home safely at the end of the day.
