K9 Mask

k9 maskKirby Holmes and Evan Daugherty pitch the K9 Mask, an air filter mask for dogs, in Shark Tank episode 1206. Kirby first got introduced to wearing an air filter mask as a youth while visiting his grandparents in Ojai, California during the summer. There were frequent wildfires in the hills around their home and they’d don air filter masks when the smoke got too thick.

Kirby is a dog lover and he still wears an air filter mask during wild fire season, but he also worried about his dog’s health. When he went looking for a mask for his dog, he couldn’t find one. Kirby, who has vast experience dealing with manufacturers sales reps, called on Evan, a veteran product designer, to help him make one.  The result was the K9 Mask.

They formed The Good Air Team, LLC to start making the K9 Masks and the rest is history. They got the business off the ground with a Kickstarter campaign that raised $10,725  back in May, 2019. A K9 Mask costs $59 and comes in small, medium, large and extra large. They come with four carbon replacement filters and you can get them in black, blue, red, pink or orange. There’s also a filter that’s N-95 for protection from pollution and Covid-19. 5 packs of replacement filters cost $25. When the pandemic hit, the company pivoted and started making masks for humans too. They’re readily available on Amazon and the company website. The guys likely want to get into retail pet stores, particularly in areas with lots of pollution. They’re hoping a Shark can help with that.
