Kennel Tips - Clothing


Knee Pads for Mushing Pants or Coveralls
For constantly kneeling on the snow, and for additional insulation from the cold, I have added foam knee pads to my coveralls. The foam is actually computer mouse pads, which are the same nylon-faced, closed-cell foam used in wet suits. I bought two "mini" pads at an office supply store for about $2.00 each. They are inserted into pocket-like patches sewn on the knees of the overalls. These patches are made of nylon with a velcro closed opening at the top so the pads can be removed before the coveralls are washed.

Surgical Gloves
Surgical gloves are one of handiest things to have around the kennel or on the dog truck. They are actually made of nitrile or a similar lightweight plastic. You can get them pretty cheap by the box at any big drug or discount store. Buy them a larger size than needed if possible.

They are great hand protection for any chores involving water, meat, foot creams, algyval and even checking the oil or fueling up the truck. They easily slip over lightweight gloves or liners and make those cold wet or sticky jobs easy. They are also great on the sled or truck for checkpoint chores and especially foot care. They make a big difference in keeping your (and your handler's) hands clean and dry, which helps keep them warmer. And they are great for dropping dogs on the road when you don't the time or opportunity to wash up.
