The nights were dark

Ok, so you know I’m the crazy dog lady. And you may think I’ve finally lost my mind with this little trick. But believe me it works for me.

Jogger's arm bands for walking dogs in the darkThe evenings have gotten dark but the dogs still need to be walked. And Ollie in particular loves to go for a run in our local park off leash. The problem is that I can’t see him in the dark and cyclists, joggers, walkers and potentially drivers can’t see him either.

We tried getting him a little high viz jacket to wear, but unless there is light shining on it you couldn’t see him. We tried getting a small light to attach to his collar but it wasn’t bright enough.

Jogger's arm bands for walking dogs in the darkMy husband was in Lidl on day, where they were selling arm bands for joggers with flashing lights and a high viz background. Perfect! Now we put them around the dog’s necks over their collars and we (and everyone else) can see them when we got for a walk in the dark.
