K9 Mask founders Kirby and Evan, appeared on Shark Tank Season 12 Episode 6 . They introduced the sharks to their face masks for dogs, which featured a washable carbon filter that can be easily swapped out.
K9 Mask air filter for dogs is a premium air pollution solution for your pet. Designed to protect a dog from the health dangers of breathing wildfire smoke, ash, dust, and smog. Proven safety in an air quality crisis.
While it seemed silly at first, all of the sharks recognized the importance of having a face mask for your dog if you live in a place prone to harmful pollution or wildfires.
In its first 14 months, K9 Mask had done just over $200,000 in sales and had seen good growth recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While four of the sharks went out, Daymond John was interested in the company and made a $200,000 investment for 45% equity in K9 Mask.

Research for our K9 Mask update revealed good news. The company is still in business, despite no evidence of the deal with Daymond ever closing.
