^ K9 Tactical and K9 Storm make similar tracking/trailing harnesses, K9 Tactical's harness has a top handle you can pick the dog up by or restrain. Area dogs just wear shabraks. Those larger harnesses are repelling harnesses. As for tracking gloves I use the thinnest Atlas gloves you can buy at Ace hardware, they have grip.
No idea what protective equipment HRD and disaster dogs could use except for goggles, fire, heat, toxins retarding booties and maybe a respirator.
OP: If you can design a K9 respirator that filters smoke and toxic fumes yet doesn't interfere with the dog's scenting ability or breathing, that'd be something, guess it would have to be designed as a muzzle. We've been dealing with bad fires in California the past few years where HRD dogs are deployed after the fire is out. I don't know what's out there for dog paw booties, there's another idea.
I'd be interested in some kind of sling to carry my dog and leg splint if she got injured out in the wilderness.
