Doggles® are protective eyewear for dogs. They are actually goggles for dogs, hence foreign objects, wind, and UV light.
What do Doggles® look like?
They are modeled after sports goggles. We currently have 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 ILS feature patented wide nose bridge, deep lens cup, interchangeable lenses.
Dogs have a much wider nose bridge than humans, along with protruding eyes. You need a goggle designed specifically to fit a dog's unique face structure.
Why are Doggles better than sunglasses for dogs?
