Get in Gear: Exercise With Fido Safely

Even though the days are getting shorter, you still need to exercise your pooch. Whether you are walking or running with your pet outside, it's a great idea to keep your dog visible to you, other pedestrians, and most importantly to cars. Since you've got the leash in one hand and a baggy in the other, holding onto a flashlight just isn't going to work.

Check out these Visiglo lighted dog collars using LED lights. Yep! You can turn your dog into a mobile disco by turning on this blinking collar at night. The lights encircle the entire collar, ensuring that your pet will be seen from all angles. These clever collars are only $20.95 from the They come in red, white & blue (as shown), bright white, siren red, ice blue, hot pink, bright green, and they even have collars with flashing designs (I like the bones).

They also make flashing leashes too. To check out the video

Fit's Tips: It's important for you to be seen when out with your dog too, so be sure to wear reflective clothing or a headlamp if it's really dark out. You can never be too cautious.

We cary these at our shelter for our dog walkers to use! Or a similar brand, actually. ur_momm - we used to use the kind you have. Unfortunately, three dogs were STILL hit in a single season so we went with the illuminated ones. They work MUCH better in dark areas.

I think that's a little extreme... my dog's collar has a reflective line along it and i think that's plenty!
