How to Choose the Right Size?
Muzzle Circumference: Measure the circumference of your dog's muzzle where you expect the goggle to land on their nose - usually around the back of their mouth.
Head Circumference: Measure the head circumference where you expect the goggle to land on the forehead - typically an inch or so behind the eyes.
Important Sizing Note: The measurements on product picture are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).
Adjusting the straps to fit your dog is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! Proper fit and adjustment will keep the goggle in place and most comfortable for your dog. Adjusting the straps PERFECTLY the first time is unlikely - it will probably take a few tries before you have everything adjusted for the most secure, comfortable, functional fit.
Introduce Gear: Be sure the goggle introduction is part of a positive experience! Let your dog inspect them before forcing them onto their face. Clip the buckles a few times so they hear the noise they make - and let them smell them and become familiar with the new piece of gear.
Start Slow: Make estimated strap adjustments - remove the lens - and see if your dog will allow you to put them on their nose - use praise or a reward with wanted behavior. Start slowly, keep sessions short, and practice with no lenses a few times. Keep your dog on leash, or within reach so they cannot ‘escape’ and try to remove the goggles.
Build Confidence: Use distractions, like rewards and simple commands, to build your dogs tolerance to the goggles and to build their confidence with them on. The goal is to make them understand that the goggles do not inhibit their normal activities!
Add Lenses: Once your dog is okay wearing the frames, add the clear lens. After a few sessions and you’re confident your dog is okay with the goggles and clear lenses - add the smoked lenses.
