walks and jogs can be a great bonding experience for pets and their owners.
Ensuring that both pet and human are safe is imperative for getting maximum
enjoyment out of the walking experience. One way to accomplish this is for each
party to wear reflective clothing or accessories. These accessories can be
anything from reflective patches on the shoes, arms, back or legs of a human to
accessories personalized for their dog. Utilizing items that have been created
with the intent of preventing accidents is an ideal way to make sure that a
walk at any time of the day will not result in injury.
For those looking for maximum safety and protection, pet owners can purchase a
reflective dog vest for their animal as well as a reflective vest for
themselves. These articles of clothing will offer maximum bodily coverage,
making each of them highly visible under any light source, no matter how small
or dim. Finding a reflective dog vest to fit a specific animal will not be
difficult, as these products are available in many different sizes to
accommodate different breeds of dog. The same goes for the human counterpart,
with different sizes available for both children and adult pet owners.
Other accessories for pets like a reflective leash and collar are also
available. Although smaller and less noticeable, these pieces will still alert
others to the presence of the animal, especially if used in conjunction with
protective gear by the person walking the dog. Although a reflective collar may
not be the best solution for dogs with long, thick, or curly fur, they are
ideal for animals with shorter fur and larger bodies. The reflective leash will
not actually cover any portion of the dog's body, but it will provide a point of
reference for the actual location of the animal. Rather than having to look for
the body of the animal or wonder if there is one present, the reflective leash
(if used alone) will let others know not only that there is a dog present, but
how close or far away it is from the road, path, or human.
Protecting your dog while getting exercise should be the main concern of any
responsible pet owner. For those that do not want to go over the top in
reflective gear for both parties, there are packaged deals available that will
offer some reflective gear for both the dog and the human in the same set. One
such product is the dog reflective gift pack, which includes a human sized
reflective vest and a four foot lead for the dog. This high visibility dog
reflective gift pack will help to ensure the safety and security of each human
and dog pair, as well as keep from interfering with the natural experience of
taking a walk during the night time hours.
This reflective gift pack is available at DontGetHit.com, as are many others.
By taking the initiative to protect a dog by making it visible on a walk, dog
owners are proving to themselves as well as their pets that they care - and
that they do not want any harm to come to the animal if it is at all
