Who are we

My name is Rob Reilly. As a dog owner and rescue volunteer, I know firsthand how stressful walking a pet that is dog aggressive might be. In addition, when working with a dog that has a negative public perception, just how often people judge that animal solely on their breed. That’s why I have spent 2 years, designing, developing and patenting a new canine safety vest, called the Pet Peeves Vest.

I wanted to develop a product that could signal whether or not your pet is friendly from a safe distance, deliver more than one message at a time, be customizable to your pet’s individual personality and avoid language barriers. Together we can create safer interactions for owners and their pets!

Our Inspiration

The Pet Peeves™Vest was developed for people, like myself. An average dog owner who wants to give their pet the best they can for the short time we have them.

My wife and I had our dog, Nyla, for nearly 10 years. She was a rescue, adopted at age 4. Though she was well-behaved and knew some commands, she was never properly socialized. Nyla was excellent with children and cats but extremely aggressive towards other canines.

Walks in the nearby park or through our neighborhood were super stressful. I often had to warn people that simply because their dog was friendly, ours was not.

With the Pet Peeves™ Vest, we hope to relieve anxiety one may feel when taking their pet on a regular stroll by allowing owners to communicate their dog's issues from a safe distance and help avoid conflicts. You should be able to enjoy the time you have with your beloved pet.

Our Inspiration

When Nyla, our family pet, passed away I was devastated. It took a year to get over the loss and my wife encouraged me to get involved at our local shelter. My first adoption day was Lenny's first week at the shelter. When he arrived as a stray, he was extremely thin and weary of his surroundings.

With a little time, the shelter was able to bring his weight up and Lenny became more confident. At first, he wasn't too thrilled to be around other dogs but he improved quickly. His temperament was wonderful and he loved kids.

While at an adoption day event, 3 separate individuals felt the need to tell me how much they didn't like those types of dogs or that dog is probably vicious. These assumptions could not be further from the truth, especially about Lenny. I'm glad to say that after 6 months, Lenny was able to find a good home and last I heard was doing well.

With the Pet Peeves™ Vest, we hope to combat breed discrimination by allowing owners and volunteers to show that a dog CAN be friendly despite their appearance. Perhaps with our product, we will be able to change other people's perceptions by empowering owners & volunteers by making them ambassadors for that breed.
