What, you think only humans are entitled to look cool and accessorize? Think again! Man’s best friend deserves the very best, and this applies to accessories as well. For the things you love, you just don’t hold back when it comes to protective gear. Did you know that even dogs can wear protective eyewear? That’s right! Dog sunglasses help block out the sun’s rays and protect your puppy’s sensitive eyes from other harmful elements.
If you’re still shopping for the best toys and accessories for your outdoorsy dog, don’t forget to look into dog sunglasses. Sure, the idea of making your sporty dog wear anything on his or her face may take some getting used to – for both you and your pet – but the rewards are worth it.
Yes, active dogs do have a tendency to wear out everything they own or have to wear, including but not limited to leashes, collars and harnesses – but eyewear may be an accessory that they’ll end up appreciating for a long time. Your pet may worry or try to remove his or her first pair of sunglasses, so for his first pair of sunglasses, choose eyewear that won’t easily fall off or break. This would teach him or her to get accustomed to the new facial decoration.
Actually, it isn’t just a decoration – outdoorsy dogs need as much eye protection as they can get. Say, for example, that you often take your dog riding on your top-down car or your sidecar… your dog will definitely be exposed to more wind and dust than regular domestic pets, so when you’re shopping for protective eyewear, make sure you get sunglasses that have sturdy lenses that can take the sort of facial whipping that even you, as the human owner, get when on the road. Make sure your glasses are wraparound too, so they don’t leave spaces for the wind or particles of debris to enter your dog’s eyes.
Anti-fog and anti-corrosive frames would definitely be a plus for the sporty pet. Moreover, make sure the tinted lenses adjust to different light sources, as you may need to go indoors and outdoors with your puppy quite often. It’s not enough that the lenses block out the light – the important thing is actually that they block out UV rays, and not light, so that your dog can still walk with them even when indoors.
Dog sunglasses isn’t an easy idea to adjust to, but if you’re living in a sunny place and you frequently find yourself taking your dog out with you on trips, it is something you should seriously consider.
