It’s always important to make sure your dog can be seen in the dark if you walk them late at night or in poorly lit areas. This concern becomes even more vital in the winter months when the nights get darker earlier. It’s crucial to make sure your dog can be seen in the dark by using some sort of hi vis or reflective clothing for dogs.
We stock a great range of reflective clothing for dogs to help them be seen in the dark including high vis dog coats, reflective dog leads, hi vis dog collars, and even safety lights for dogs. We’ve reviewed the best of these products and here are the ones we’d recommend for your dog this winter and beyond.
Hi Vis Reflective Dog Coat
The Dr Green Hi Vis Reflective Dog Coat is made of 600 denier with a Ripstop outer layer making it very robust and hardwearing. The coat is lined with a cosy fleeced lining for extra warmth in the very cold months. The seams are bound with hip-tape which is a waterproof tape giving extra protection against the elements. The reflective coat is easily visible by car lights and the addition of a reflective line running through the double stitched seam offers even greater visibility and safety for night-time walks.
This coat offers the very best of qualities – practicality, durability, warmth and the comfort of knowing that your dog will be safe and visible on dark evenings which makes this a must-have addition to any dog’s winter wardrobe.
Flashing Reflective Dog Lead
This flashing reflective dog lead has a flexible LED tube sewn into it and has three settings – two flash modes and a steady glow. The reflective lead is perfect for walking your dog at night time and in poorly lit areas.
Flashing Reflective Dog Collar
The reflective collar is perfect if you need to walk your dog down a country lane or through heavy traffic. You can let your dog off the lead in the dark, in a safe place, having the comfort of knowing that they will be visible.
Dog Safety Light
Make sure your dog is visible in the dark with the Orbiloc Dog Safety Light. It is quick and easy to attach to a collar, harness or lead. It is quick and easy to use and can be attached to a belt or anything with a strap. The bright light offers greater visibility for night-time walks and allows you or your dog to be seen as far away as 5km.
The light is operated by twisting the upper part of the safety light either left or right depending on whether you require a steady bright light or a flashing bright light and then giving it a further twist to turn it off again.
As you can see, there are plenty of options when it comes to hi vis and reflective clothing for dogs! We recommend getting at least one of these products for your dog this winter to keep them visible and safe. Walking your dog in the dark without any form of reflective clothing can be dangerous for both you and your dog. Be Seen, Be Safe.
