About Rex Specs
Rex Specs were developed simply because our dogs needed eye protection. We ask a lot of our dogs - days on the trail, hours on the river, and peak upon peak. Both of our dogs were diagnosed with conditions made worse by extended exposure to the sun. After a failed search for a dog goggle that could handle our adventures, we created our own.
Tested in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Rex Specs are proven to stay on through the biggest adventures to the laziest afternoons.
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!
