The development of The “Armadillo Water Hose” began in January 2004. The Inventor, a Pet lover and owner of a friendly Yellow Labrador Retriever named “Bentley” encountered a problem as do many Pet owners today. Bentley was "teething" and enjoyed the soft exterior of the backyard water hose. In an effort to protect Bentley and keep from replacing the water hose on a regular basis, the search was on for a for a water hose that was impervious to a dog’s bite or “chewing”. No such hose could be found at the time. This initiated development of a solution to this common problem among Pet owners.
In September 2004, the Armadillo ChewProof™ Hose was introduced to the Pet market. Initially, manufacturing was done in the Inventor's garage but demand soon pushed manufacturing to a larger facility in Broomfield, Colorado. In May of 2007 the initial patent petition was filed and in February 2009, Armadillo Water Hose was was awarded its first patent. The patent award triggered our global expansion and in August 2009, all operations were relocated to our current facility in Boulder, Colorado and "Armadillo Water Hose" transitioned into our new brand "Armadillo Hose Products".
