I’m sure you know these so called light collars for dogs that are supposed to give some traffic safety when you do walkies in the dark. We tried a lot of them and they all where plain garbage. Seriously, no kidding. They just glow at best, they are always outta power and they all broke within one week. I refuse to spend money for crap like that. Money that is better spend on treatos anyway, right? On the other hand, when you live in a city with lots of traffic, especially bikes (here pedestrians and cyclists share one walkway), you just need some light when walking in the dark, else they would just run you over. And well, the traffic just appreciates it when you are clearly visible. So what to do? Actually the solution was easy and I’m kinda mad that I wasted so much money on those garbage collars (instead on treatos).
You sure know those little head lights for joggers. Those are perfect. The band itself is soft, you can adjust the size and in most cases flexible hence it fits perfectly around your dogs neck and you do not need to fumble around with some wobbly fastener. You just slip it over the head. Most are USB rechargeable, so no need for batteries. But the best thing is, as you can see above, finally a proper light. Ami seems to love it a lot since she now can see the ground in front of her. This one already lasted 3 weeks longer than any of these stupid collars and all this just for 10 Euros. I’m sure it will shine for us the entire dark season. Have a pawesome day, stay healthy and be safe out there.
