    Is it Safe for a Dog to Wear an Air Filter Face Mask?

    Should a Dog Wear an Air Filter Face Mask for Air Pollution?

    Many pet owners are asking questions about the safety of a dog wearing an air filter face mask. Can a dog wear an air filter mask? Is it safe? What are the warnings? What are the benefits? These are important questions with increasing air pollution problems from wildfire smoke, desert dust, volcanic ash, red tide, and mold from hurricanes. 

    Do Air Filter Face Masks for Dogs Exist?

    Yes, K9 Mask® launched a Kickstarter campaign in March of 2019 for the first production of an air filter mask for dogs. The campaign was fully funded and the first masks were produced in the summer of 2019. All of this happened before the coronavirus pandemic. K9 Mask® by Good Air Team first saw the need to protect dogs from wildfire smoke in California. After the destruction caused by the Camp and Paradise wildfires in 2018 they knew something had to be done to solve the problem of air pollution affecting pets.

    It's a worrying trend that has fire officials taking a proactive approach -- from more funding to wildfire prevention to hiring additional crews -- after the state saw its worst fire season ever in 2020.

    Why is California Expecting an Extreme 2021 Wildfire Season?

    Why is California Expecting an Extreme 2021 Wildfire Season?

    As California and the West are falling deeper into drought and, with summer approaching, there is great potential for another severe fire season in 2021.

    As a disappointing wet season comes to a close and hope for spring rain fades, conditions are worse now than they were at this time last year in 2020, with exceptional and extreme drought now found throughout the region.

    In California, that doesn’t bode well, given that last year’s more moderate rainfall deficits, combined with extreme heat waves, ushered in a record-setting fire year. It brought 5 of the 6 largest fires in modern state history, 10,488 destroyed structures and 33 fatalities. Some 4.2 million acres were torched.
