Beginning Sunday morning, we’ll “fall back” and our days will become even shorter, but your dog won’t mind. With all the snazzy nighttime gear available to keep him seen and safe, there’s no reason his evening routine has to change. Walk and play in the evening’s darkness with these top picks, and check out the past tips at the links below for even more nighttime gear.
As always, Woof Report product picks are handpicked and not advertisements.
Puplight to the Rescue
Outfit your dog with the Puplight, just like Secret Service and Search & Rescue Dogs wear, and he’s ready for his evening stroll. The Puplight attaches to your dog’s collar and its three ultra bright white LEDs illuminate 200 feet forward and 70 feet to each side. Awarded the “Best Lighted Dog Product” by Whole Dog Journal, it keeps dogs visible up to a mile away. The Puplight (pictured above) is recommended for medium size dogs due to the size of the light attachment, and it’s available in red, blue, black and silver, $17.95.
Watch it Glow
|What’s your dog’s first question when he notices it’s darker earlier now? You guessed it: Can we still play with the Chuckit? And the answer is yes! The Chuckit! folks know the game of fetch doesn’t end when the sun goes down, so they created the Max Glow Ball. Durable and available in three sizes to fit in all Chuckit! Ball launchers, the Max Glow ball glows for hours, no batteries required. Just hold it under a bright light for a few minutes and head to the park for nighttime fun. Available in three sizes, $4.99 and up.|
Two more top picks for nighttime outdoor play are Planet Dog’s Orbee-Tuff® Glow-in-the-Dark Whistle Ball the Meteorlight K-9 LED Dog Ball.
Flexi-ssesorize for Safety
|Bling out your Flexi-leash with three ultra-bright white LEDs and light up your night walk or run so your dog is visible. The Fletch Light from Walking Lights makes it easy. Attached the Fletch Light light unit to the side of any size Flexi leash, even the mini size, or any retractable leash with a smooth and flat side, and you’re ready to go. Once attached, you can rotate the removable light unit so it lights the path just how you like it, forward, downward, or right in between, $9.99.|
Light the Way
Light your dog’s way with the Lighted Leash and you get a durable 4.5’ leash with great visibility and the option for a steady or blinking light. With LED lights running down the center of the leash on both sides not just one, your dog will be seen from a half mile away. And the leash will light up the road for you too. Available in five colors, and with matching collars, $24.95.
Niteize also makes nice lighted leashes and collars that glow in red and offer high visibility.
