To ensure your and your dog’s safety when going out for a walk in the evening, it is smart to use reflective or light up dog accessories, so you are visible to other road users. You can buy reflective leashes and light up collars, as well as various dog collar lights that you can easily hang on your dog’s collar, harness or lead to increase visibility. These safety lights come in different sizes, colours, designs, and settings and are made by different brands. It can be hard to find the right light, but here is a list to help you.
Nite Ize has two different kinds of dog collar lights. The first is the Nite Ize Safety Light Spotlight, which is creatively designed as a lightbulb, so it makes a nice addition to your dog’s attire. The light is waterproof and is easily attached to a collar with a clip made of stainless steel. The light has a flickering and a constant mode and you can easily turn it on by pressing the button. The second Nite Ize safety light is the PetLit LED Collar Light. Just like the first one, this light is waterproof, has a safety clip and has two modes.
