Accessorizing your beloved bow-wow without making him/her (and you) look completely ridiculous isn't easy. Sure, you can buy cute little booties and twee tartan coats, but these items are hardly cutting-edge in the doggie-style stakes, are they? What you need is a piece of dogswear (yes it's a real word) that'll benefit your darling dog in both the fashion and function stakes.
Doggles are superbly made sunglasses. For dogs. Incredible though it sounds, many vets and dogtors agree that canine eyes need protecting from the sun just as much as ours. Featuring rugged polycarbonate (shatterproof) anti-fog lenses with 100% UV protection, they're great for dogs with eye disorders such as pannus and light sensitivity. Doggles are genuine doggy-health must-haves, and most dogs will readily accept them after a short adjustment period.
The full-on goggle-style shades feature stylish air-vented wraparound frames that completely enclose the eyes, with no gaps for stray light, dirt or insects - perfect for dogs that like to lean out of car windows (and what self-respecting dog doesn't?).
Practicalities aside, Doggles are the coolest thing to hit dog-dom since Muttley donned a flying helmet, and are guaranteed to make your favourite furry friend the most talked about hound on the block.
