Dogs need walks. So do people, of course, but many of us aren’t able to get our dogs out until after the work day ends and guess what? Fall and winter are coming, and soon it will be dark when we finish working, and so we end up walking our pups at night.
Before I saw much more, it really IS critical that your dog get out and get walks every day. If you’ve ever watched an episode of The Dog Whisperer, you know that the best way to treat every single dog behavioral issue right at the start is to take the dog out for nice long walks each day to help, as we say in our house, get the “sillies” out (we do a walk plus the dog park each day because we’re lucky enough to have a local dog park).
Luckily, a new company called Dog-E-Glow is here to help us walk our dogs in the dark.
Here’s what Dog-E-Glow says about their origins:
The founders of Dog-E-Glow have launched several new and innovative pet products over the years that differentiated themselves from a saturated pet product industry. Our company firmly believes in the numerous benefits of the Dog-E-Glow brand, from both the safety and fashion perspective. As a company we continue to improve our product technology and design to keep dogs everywhere visible and looking good for years to come!
The leashes and collars range in price from about $25 to $30, so a matched set will cost you a bit over $60 with shipping. They have a huge selection of designs including college-related ones, so you’re likely to find one you like. I personally really like these because they work regardless of other light; reflectors, for instance, don’t show up unless an outside light source causes them to flash.
One interesting point: if you’re a responsible dog owner and pick up your dog’s poop, the lighted collar helps TREMENDOUSLY when trying to, um, find it. Ahem.
