So what are Doggles®, anyway?
Doggles® are protective eyewear for dogs. They are actually goggles for dogs, hence the name. Unlike ordinary sunglasses for dogs, Doggles® actually protect dog’s eyes from foreign objects, wind, and UV light.
What do Doggles® look like?
They are modeled after sports goggles. We currently have 5 styles of Doggles, fitting dogs 7 pounds and up. All models have flexible, snug-fitting frames, which have foam padding against the face; polycarbonate (shatterproof) and anti-fog lenses; and adjustable elastic head and chin straps to keep the Doggles securely on the dog.
Why are Doggles® better than sunglasses for dogs?
Vets and Vet Ophthalmologists all around the world recommend our product.
