Southern Cross Cut Gear and Dirty Dawg Cut Gear provide your dog with the highest level of protection and the best fit possible for an active hog hunting dog.  As one of the oldest companies in the industry our years of experience have created some the highest quality hog dog gear ever made.  Our goal is to provide the highest level of protection to the most susceptible areas of a hog dog while causing as little impact as possible on a dogs maneuverability.  Utilizing high grade Kevlar, Ballistics Nylon, Cordura and other proven stab resistant materials along with the most refined pattern in the industry we have created the most effective and cost efficient gear on the market.  We stand behind our products so much that we offer a lifetime manufacturers warranty.  


Southern Cross Collars are designed with a velcro overlap for easy gearing up.  Add 2-3"s to the circumference of your dogs neck for the proper length collar.  For example, if your dogs neck measures 18"s it would need a 21" collar.

At Southern Cross we pride ourselves on making the best hog dog protective gear there is. However, hog hunting is a potentially dangerous activity and even with the best protection available, nothing can be guaranteed 100% cut proof.  Southern Cross and its affiliates are not responsible for any damage to products or injury to dogs that may occur while using our products.
