Would your Rex Specs dog goggles fit a 20 pound Boston Terrier?
Unfortunately, no. At this time we have one size of Rex Specs goggles designed to fit dogs between 30-100 lbs. Some people have had success with smaller dogs, but the design is not optimized for the smaller dogs. However, we are in the process of designing a smaller model. Stay in touch and we will let you know as soon as it is available!
My German Shepherd has a huge head, will Rex Specs fit?
Yes, it might be wise to get a Strap Extender. This will add 4" to the strap, allowing for more adjustment around the neck and muzzle.
Do Rex Specs fit "short-nosed" breeds?
Yes, Rex Specs fit on breeds, like boxers, pit bulls, and bull dogs, depending on the width of their muzzle (nose). Some bull dogs might have muzzles that are too broad or short for the goggle to rest comfortably. Many of these breeds have eye issues that Rex Specs can be helpful in managing or preventing.
Can I return the Rex Specs if they don't fit or my dog doesn't like them?
Your satisfaction in the product is what matters most to us. We accept returns within 30 days of purchase for a full refund. Shipping cost are non-refundable. We ask that the product be in nearly new shape when returned.
If your dog isn't taking to Rex Specs and they just aren't working for you, we can work something out. Just like everything - when it comes to dogs, training to wear Rex Specs like a pro takes time and persistence. See our Fitting and Use Instructions for more tips. Stick with it, and it'll pay off. But if you and your fur-friend aren't up to it, we'll do the best we can to make you happy.
Will I get an order and shipping confirmation email?

A tracking number and shipping confirmation will be sent as soon as the order has been processed by our fulfillment. If you have not received these emails, please check your spam filter. If it isn't there just give us a call at (307) 203-0308 or shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will look into it for you.
Do Rex Specs work with ear protection?
Yes, Rex Specs have been designed with a low profile strap system that integrates easily with ear protection, muzzles and collars.
What if my dog is in-between sizes?
Please look at out ‘fit guide’ (link to our fit guide page) to help you understand what size goggles your dog might fit into better. We use body weight as a guideline for sizing – but head shape is also very important.
If your dog is under 30lbs, but has a blocky, thick, or bulkier head they might fit into Rex Specs Original better than the small. For example, some heelers/cattle dogs that are 30lbs fit into the Original better than the size small.
On the other hand, some dogs around the 30 lb weight might fit the Rex Specs Small better than the Original. If you have a whippet, or smaller greyhound they might be in this category. Dogs with a very slender, petit face structure might fit into the size small better.
Will the size small fit my Pug?
It depends. Our size small was specifically designed to fit smaller dogs with a flatter face. Although it was designed with this in mind, it does not fit well unless the dog has some ‘nose’ for the goggle to rest on. The dog also needs some ‘chin’ for the strap to work properly. Please take a look at our fit guide (link to fit guide page) to see some examples of the size small on various breeds.
Are they UV protected?
Yes, all of the lenses, including the clear lenses, are rated UV 400 (protecting against 99.9% of UVA/UVB rays).
Are they impact resistant?
The Rex Specs Original (larger size) pass the ANSI Z87.1-2010 impact resistance test. Check out the video of this test on YouTube.
