SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dogs have cemented their status as man’s best friend thanks to one cool collar.

The Bark4Beer is a collar that has a retractable beer bottle opener built into it, enabling dudes to crack open a brewski with the help of their trusty mutt.

Co-creator John Hornbeak made it as part of project while getting his MBA at Oxford University, and admits not everyone was a believer.

He recalls his professor ridiculing the product, and saying not even “crazy Americans” would buy it.

With hundreds sold already, that professor is biting his tongue and Hornbeak is laughing all the way to the bank.

Adam Harris, the other brains behind the operation, assures that the collar can earn a wife or girlfriend brownie points from her man because it’s “the ultimate guy accessory.”

Dogs will even get more love from their owners since they’ll be participating in the party.

Harris says, “Dogs will really be man’s best friend now.”
