When I came across an ad for the OutFox Field Guard, I knew I no longer had to worry about what to wear to the Grammy's next year. I would out GaGa Lady GaGa.
And then I visited the OutFox website. Here's what I learned.
A foxtail is a spikelet or spikelet cluster of a grass, that serves to disperse its seeds as a unit. The spikelets or spikelet clusters of foxtails are adapted for animal dispersal and so can become a health hazard for dogs and other domestic animals. Grasses with this feature can be found all around the country, but are most common in the Western United States with the greatest foxtail problem occurring in California.
The OutFox™ Field Guard helps prevent barbed grasses from penetrating your dog's eyes, ears, and nose.
They even have an OutFox video.
