Your pet is your family and losing them is one of the hardest things to go through; fortunately there are many things you can do to avoid loss by using a few gadgets or outerwear including reflective collars, reflective dog leashes and other reflective pet gear. Hundreds of thousands of pets go missing every year and few are found, don't let one of them be yours.
Reflective Dog Collars
are widely available and one of the simplest ways to secure your pet in your sight especially at nighttime. Personalized reflective dog collars are available and can include the dogs name and your contact telephone number in case they are found. Reflective dog collars are available in a variety of colors so you can find one that best suits your dog if you like to dress them up or co-ordinate with your outfits. Look for a collar with sturdy construction and stitching to ensure it doesn't come off in general play. It is not recommended that you use these collars for tying up.
A Reflective Dog Leash
can increase the safety of you and your pet especially on walks at dusk or nighttime, the more visibility the better especially when crossing roads, walking through dark areas or even side streets. Combining the reflective dog leash with the collar will boost your defense in multiple surroundings. If your dog gets loose it will be easier to see or catch him/her the more visible they are.
Reflective Pet Gear is another option to keep your pet safe. There are reflective vests and harnesses available that will make your pet highly visible in city and country landscapes. Vests and harnesses
are available in various reflective colors such as orange or yellow. Some vests are available in fleece for colder areas and have reflective stripes for high visibility.
With so many options on the market you can't afford not to keep your pet safe, after all they are family. Safety should be paramount in your life at home or at work and include everyone, especially your beloved pet. If dogs are lost without contact information or any of the safety measures listed above, it will be difficult to track them down again.
In fall and winter months reflective gear
is even more important. Once daylight savings is in effect those nighttime walks can be increasingly dangerous, by having the necessary protective equipment you can help you and your pet continue your joyous walks through the colder months. Those fleece vests sound like an even better investment around this time too.
Take care of your pet and your pet will take care of your for many years to come.
