Reflective, Warm & Waterproof Accessories

Don’t forget to use a harness and collar that has reflective stitching, for your dog to be visible at all times.

Well-Lit Routes

Stick to well-lit areas and avoid dark alleys or poorly lit spots that could pose tripping hazards or safety risks. Stay alert to your surroundings, and be vigilant for cyclists and unfamiliar obstacles. Always remember to inform someone of your plans, if you have a mobile device, share your location with someone who has a trackable live location.

Polite Walking

Teach your dog basic obedience commands like "sit," "stay," and "come" to ensure they walk politely and respond to your instructions. Doing this, allows for peace of mind and enhancing safety during nighttime walks.
