Walking your dog at night

walking-your-dog-at-night

Your dog loves to head out for a nice walk, and you really enjoy spending this time with him in the fresh air. However, it might not always be possible to walk your pet in the bright sunshine, and some people may actually prefer walking their pet in the evening or early morning hours when it is still a bit dark. This does come with unique safety concerns though, particularly when it comes to visibility.

To keep yourself and your pet safe at night, choose to walk in familiar areas that are well-lit. This may mean scouting places out during daylight hours. Your pet may need some additional gear so drivers and other pedestrians can see him, like a reflective collar or leash, and a light up item to place on it. Be sure to make yourself visible as well through reflective gear and a high-quality flashlight.  For advice, you can call local Savannah, GA veterinarian, or visit their site for more information.
