It’s even better than I’d hoped because the dog doesn’t mind it at all. We walk in tall grasses with stickers and not-so-tall innocent-looking foxtail-laden grasses all the time in the summer and fall. The OutFox Field Guard has removed my anxiety. It’s very lightweight, gives my dog’s eyes some protection from the bright sun, plus he can and does easily drink water right through the mask. He behaves like it isn’t even there. Love love love it.
