Doggles

Doggles are protective eyewear for dogs. They are actually goggles for dogs. The first and only eye protection designed and created just for dogs. Seen on CNN, Regis and Kelly, The Today Show, Good Morning America and many others, they are a hit with everyone who has tried them. 

Research has shown that long hours in the sun without adequate eye protection increase the chances of developing eye disease. UV-absorbant sunglasses and sungoggles can help protect your eyes and the eyes of your pet from sun damage.
 
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has set standards for UVA and UVB protection in sungoggles. ANSI requires that a pair of sungoggles block at least 50 percent of UV rays. 

Most dogs will readily accept Doggles after a short adjustment period.  

Doggles are modeled after sports goggles.  There are 2 styles of Doggles, fitting dogs 3 pounds to 250 pounds.  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. Doggles feature patented wide nose bridge, deep lens cup, and interchangeable lenses. 

Doggles is an environmentally conscious organization, using as much “green” or recycled fabrics and materials in their products as possible, always keeping in mind that what is good for our planet  is also good for our pets. 

Training your dog to wear the goggles can be accomplished in a small amount of time if you follow these easy steps:  

1) Don’t put the goggles on your dog while indoors. Imagine yourself wearing dark tinted glasses inside. You cannot see, and neither can your dog.

2) When you first put the goggles on your dog, don’t let him paw at the glasses or roll to get them off. Reassure him that its okay. Take him immediately to bright sunlight and let him realize that he can see with them on. Walk around, get his mind off the goggles.

3) Try to go through this routine as often as possible. The number of training sessions required depends on your dog.
