About Top Dog

Canadian made REUSABLE, food safe, durable protective apparel that is best in class.

Located on the east coast of Canada in the beautiful province of Prince Edward Island, Top Dog Manufacturing is only a 3- hour drive from the international container shipping port of Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada (and 9 hours from the Port of Boston, Massachusetts, US). We currently ship to more than 25 countries around the globe (via land, air and sea transport). Top Dog has been manufacturing protective apparel, in house,  since 2002. We take great pride in providing the highest level of customer service possible. We have recently relocated to a new, larger manufacturing facility, and continue to increase production capacity to meet growing demand. We fill orders on time! 

We service a range of industries and applications, using only top-rated materials:

– Pure polyurethane film (PU). 

  • We use a proprietary formula of Pure Polyurethane (PU) film because it is the best material available for reusable durable protective apparel.

Our customers deserve and demand protective apparel that will be certain to protect users and reduce operating costs. Our premium lines are the best in the business. In order to meet the needs of our customers, we offer the most variety of products and colour choices in the industry.

  • I have used TOP DOG MFG products for several years while working in the aquaculture industry in BC, Yukon and on the East Coast of Canada. The gowns, aprons and sleeves are very versatile and durable, made to withstand the demands of fish processing plants, spawning  broodstock, picking eggs, and general fish handling tasks. They repel the water, stand up to minus 20 degree freezers, provide a layer of warmth,  are easy to clean and disinfect by hand, or in the washing machine. They dry quickly in air and are dryer tolerant as well. A great added feature is the available variety of colours which allows the facility to colour code specific areas of work so to maintain biosafety or food safety of the facility. The Top Dog Mfg service is great and the company is innovative and always willing to work with the client to find solutions.
