Default Doggles

Hi everyone, I wanted to know if anyone has heard of Doggles. they are (as im sure you have guessed) goggles for dogs. They work as sunglasses. I bought a pair for diego, but he hates them. I bought them tonight, and I have them on him now, but I feel bad because he wont move. he lays down all depressed. I just wanted to know if anyone thinks that I should take them back. He didnt mind them in the store, thats why I bought them. thanks for any info. I will try to attach a picture of them.

Yeh I say take them back if he hates them they'll just lay around.
I saw some adorable little glasses with rhinestones on them for dogs in New Mexcio but I knew that none of mine would wear them If you were to ride a mottorcycle or somthing with your dog that's 1 thing but just to wear I think any dog would be mad

I read that you can get prescription glasses for a dog, useful after cataract surgery. I think Doggles made them. But just for looks? I can't see that they'd tolerate them.

They might be useful on a windy day at the beach.

if you are realy gonna use them (ie a dog who likes to hang his head out the window when in the car, or dogs who are sensitive to bright lights) they are extreemly usefull, and id start of with short sessions and lots of praise...

if you got them just because there cute...then id still give them a couple of days again, short sessions and lots of praise/treats, if after a week hes still hating them, then you might want to return them.

rosie has a pair for when she goes on dads bike...vixie and dodger will be getting some come summer for sun protection rosie doesnt mind them at all but it took about 10 sessions starting with 5 mins and working up before she was "comfortable"

if you are going to use them for a reason (like sun or wind protection) then i think u should persevere and train him to wear them - like i needed Twig to be able to wear jumpers and coats as it gets cold and wet here so i started when she was very young just 2 mins a day put them on and take them off and then start to gradually build up time over several weeks - he soon should get used to them lots of praise and encouragement too

Yes i say take them back them sell them here in our pets at home, i dnt think they are needed i mean what dog wants his eyes covered over wiv sum goggles, i personally think they are silly and going OTT with the whole doggy acsessories, i mean a dog is a dog at the end of the day not a human, they especially dont need goggles lol...
edited to add:: unless your vet for some reason says ur dog needs doggles then dont buy them lol...

actually, dogs eyes are just as sensitive to sun as humans are...when you have issues seeing because the suns too bright, so does your dog. so while they have "acessoriezed" them they are actually very good, again especially for lighter coloured dogs who tend to be more sun sensitive.
they also DO protect the eyes from debris (ie a twig to the eye while running in dense brush or a rock kicked up from the road while your dog has its head out of the window.

personally i think they are a MUST for any dog who rides with its head out the window or who accompany their people on their motorbikes.
there also great for dilutes with light eyes who can be very sensitive to suns light.
somwhere like the UK where its not all that sunny most of the time (im from manchester origionally) then i agree, there kind of pointless for sun protection and growing up i never saw dogs with their heads out of the window (probably because it was always raining)
however since moving to the states and realizing how bright the sun realy is...and seeing the results of a small stone kicked up and hitting the eye of a dog who just had his nose out the window...

there not 100% pointless or silly...
when used simply "beacue they look cute" then it crosses the line into too much. but they realy do have good uses!
