Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit: The Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit is “clean” garb for a dog that uses the sense of smell to locate harmful bacteria or fungi in controlled environments such as hospitals and cleanroom manufacturing areas. The Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit protects nearly all of the dog’s body and feet while providing a clear airway for breathing.
The Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit generally includes a body covering suit with integral booties and a hood for covering the head. The body portion includes a back zipper for entry into the suit. Elongated portions enclose each leg separately for easy walking. An elastic band secures each leg portion above the foot to form a bootie, which may include a flexible sole for walking on.
Another elongated portion of the Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit surrounds the tail. An elastic band holds the tail portion firmly near the base of the tail so that wagging or waving of the tail may be clearly seen by the dog’s handler.
The Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit hood for covering the head is donned after the body portion and overlaps it in the head and neck area. An elastic band secures the hood tightly against the base of the neck. The front of the hood is transparent plastic to allow the dog to see. The transparent portion surrounds the snout and extends slightly beyond it. The end of the transparent portion is open to allow free passage of air, but the extended end of the hood prevents the dog’s nose from contacting any surface.
The Patented Canine Cleanroom Suit is a one of a kind invention that has been designed to protect animals in unique environments yet still allowing them to detect mold and odorous chemicals to improve the overall work environments. The Canine Cleanroom Suit has been awarded a Design Patent and a Utility Patent.
