Rex Specs Background
We didn’t realize how much we cherished our daily outdoor excursions with our dogs until we were told they were going to be limited. A few years ago, both of our dogs were diagnosed with harmful eye conditions made worse by extended exposure to the sun. Tuckerman, our lanky German Shepherd has Pannus and Yaz (named after the famous Red Sox star) suffered from chronic sunburn around her fair husky eyes. We were told by our vet that we either had to limit their time in the sun or find some sort of dog goggle. After a discouraging search for a goggle that could handle our adventures, we created our own.
Rex Specs are now being used to protect against almost anything imaginable – dust and debris from rotor wash during helicopter deployments, UV rays on mountain hikes or simple walks, bugs and wind during sidecar rides, or punctures from sticks and thorns while chasing birds, or squirrels. You name it – Rex Specs has it covered.
Here’s to our dogs and all the adventures shared!

Health & Prevention
The majority of dogs will be diagnosed with some sort of eye ailment by the time they are 8 years old. Many of these can be prevented or treated with some form of protection from harmful elements, such as the sun, debris, grasses and brush.
Rex Specs K9 design is optimized for the working dog. They are used by personal protection dog trainers, United States Defense departments, hunters and in many other working K9 applications. Rex Specs have received the mark approval from several K9 professionals for their effectiveness in many different situations.
• The large spherical lens design allows for a full range of view, eliminating the potential for any distractions or obstruction during wear.
• The soft foam edge fits snuggly on the face of the dog, protecting them from dust and debris.
