Subject: Walking the dog at night? Please read these personal safety tips
Body: Nighttime walks with your pup are fun and necessary, but they can also be hazardous. To keep you and your four-legged friend safe, please read these safety tips.
- Use reflective gear. It may be hard for cars to see you at night. Get a reflective collar and leash, or an attachable collar light.
- Be aware of your surroundings. There may be loose dogs, nocturnal wild animals, joggers, bicyclists, and cars that might not be paying attention. Keep your dog on a leash, and always keep a firm hold.
- Walk in pairs. Not only is it safer, but it’s also more enjoyable! If you live alone, consider asking a neighbor to walk with you. Use Nextdoor as a way to find a walking buddy.
- Consider your own clothing. Avoid dark clothing, and wear something reflective or LED.
