Taking our dogs out walking at night comes with all sorts of dangers. There are many cases of dogs being hit by cars or bike as dogs can be extrmely hard to see at night, especially if yours is a black or dark coloured dog.
You may wish to make your dog more visible at night. Some options include reflective stripes or flashing beacons attached to your dog’s collar. My favourite though is a good glow in the dark, LED powered collars and leashes.
So what make the best glow in the dark collar and leash?
Why use a glow in the dark collar
Even though a glow in the dark LED collar is a pretty cool fashion accessory, the purpose is most definitely about your dog’s safety.
There are load of times that a glow in the dark collar would come in handy and make seeing your dog easier.
- Walking at night
- When your dog gets loose and is on the run
- When you are passing other pedestrians and cyclists
- Crossing roads at night
- Your dog sits under the table at your local cafe
- Camping or hiking
Many of us take our dogs out after dark. Perhaps because you get home from work late or have to wait until it is cooler outside to walk your dog. Unfortunately when it dark out, your pets can be harder to see.
What make a good quality glow in the dark collar
- Water resistance
- Long battery life
