Improper care of your bite suit will shorten the lifespan of your bite suit. After training it is best to hang your suit to dry. This will allow the bite suit to dry faster than simply placing it back into your bite suit bag.
It’s not advised to train in the rain or a water source such as a lake, the ocean or river. However, if you do make sure you thoroughly dry the bite suit before your next use. If the suit does not dry completely you run the risk of developing mold within the suit which will ruin your suit, and if dogs bite a moldy suit they can get sick.
