Whether you work the late shift, or want to take your dog to the local protest and riot, you’ll want to make sure your four-legged friend stays safe and visible. You never know when you’ll come across an unaware driver, a coyote, or a dangerous pothole.
One way to do keep yourself and your dog safer is by carrying a light while walking outside. Keychain or clip-on flashlights are a good idea, as are regular handheld flashlights, but these both take a lot of manual work to hold, point, and shine at the ground or objects.
A much better solution is an illuminated dog collar, which solves a lot of problems. If you have a longer leash, your dog may be able to run out into the street or across a driveway where a car is backing out and unable to see your pet. The illumination of the collar can be a clue to drivers that there is something moving in the path of their vehicle, either in front or behind it.
If your leash breaks, a lighted collar can also be a safety device so you can locate your dog if it gets away. While loyal, dogs are also easily distracted. If it spots a rabbit and breaks out of the harness or leash, the animals may be out of sight before you know it. With an illuminated collar, you stand a better chance of finding the dog sooner.
Finally, an illuminated collar is a good idea from the dog’s perspective. It will be able to see better at night, whether on a walk or in the backyard. It will also be more likely to be rescued and returned to you, as stray dogs are unlikely to be wearing a lighted collar with identification tags.
This dog collar from Polybrite is one of our least well-known products, as is the case with much of our safety gear. But safety consists of more than wearing a helmet and vest — it also involves being more visible through the use of light. A black dog being held by a black leash can be nearly invisible at night. Unless you take some precautions and make it more visible to drivers.
