What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

You love your dogs and like to take them with you, also to those places where you meet friends or relax? Stressful situations for human and dog, for example in rush hour crowds, new surroundings with new people, where some might be worried about being around your dog(s) ... That's when a friendly-looking and comfortable BUMAS muzzle is needed.

As a responsible dog owner there are situations where you would like to use a dog muzzle, but sometimes you hesitate, because an off-the-shelf muzzle is too uncomfortable and your dog looks scary to others.

With a BUMAS you will have every situation under control. Check it out:

 

 A BUMAS fits comfortably in the hand and on the snout, is flexible, tear-resistant and waterproof with no sharp edges due to our innovative materials. Unlike other plastic and leather muzzles, Biothane® does not emit distracting odors for your dog. Your original BUMAS protects without disturbing the dog's vision and sense of smell.

 

A BUMAS muzzle gives your dog enough space to pant and drink. Feeding treats is still possible while your dog is wearing the muzzle. Due to the lightness of the material, the ergonomic fit and the customized measurements, your dog will wear the BUMAS muzzle like a human wears a light pair of glasses.

 

 

The simple click-clasp makes attaching the muzzle easy and reliable. When not in use, you can stow it away in your bag, click it onto your belt or onto your dog's harness. The material is soft and easy to clean.

 

BUMAS - the original. The first animal welfare compliant certified muzzle, positively assessed and approved by the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna/ Austria.

 

There's no too short, too long or too tiny with BUMAS - the perfect fitting muzzle styled to your personal preferences and your dog's needs!  You can create a custom-made muzzle, tailored to the needs and characteristics of your dog for maximum fit.

 

Choose from 21 colors to design your favorite look and create your own unique BUMAS, as original as your dog. BUMAS – colorful custom-made muzzles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

In the past 5 months we've invested 100% of our time to bring this campaign to life. Our main goal was to eliminate any uncertainty that might present itself in the aftermath of a successful campaign. Even so, we are aware that since this is our first campaign there might be some unexpected surprises along the way.

We've produced several dog muzzles for the European market from which we've gained a lot of experience and an excellent reputation. Our BUMAS is made to measure made from BioThane®, a material from the US, engineered in Austria. We have signed an agreement with a manufacturer to make sure we can start the manufacturing process for the US immediately after the campaign. The product design will continuously improve in partnership with the manufacturing experts to further increase manufacturing quality and reducing the total supply chain risk. A successful campaign will allow us to enter in the US market and hopefully even produce locally.

The shipping process imposes the greatest risk, from our point of view. To change this we are working with FedEx to ensure a positive and accurate delivery process within the US. For now, a warehouses in San Francisco, CA, will be set-up to minimize shipping costs.

With tackling the above challenges, we are confident to have made all preparations necessary so our supporters/customers will receive the highest quality product on time.

We need your help to get funds to make this product for the US market reality, so please help us spread the word and become a BUMAS ambassador!
