I have a 10-year-old rescue Golden Retriever, and when the hair on her nose started thinning, I began reading about whether or not I needed to offer her any protection against the sun’s harmful rays. According to experts, the answer is yes. Figuring my dog would never let me put sunscreen on her nose (at least not without trying to eat it), I thought the next best thing would be to get her the Pet Dog Baseball Cap Sport Cap Hat ($9).
I haven’t had tons of success with getting her to wear holiday hats and fleece robes, so I wasn’t sure how this would go down. To my surprise, she kept it on the entire day, and though the hat was slim, the bill was just long enough to keep her entire nose out of the sun all day long. Good purchase indeed!
