Safety Tip for Dog Walking at Night
Safety Tips for Dog Walking at Night
Summer heat is slowly fading into beautiful, crisp autumn weather. This is the best time to head outside for the warm but slightly humid days and cooler nights. Fall is the perfect season to be outdoors with family, friends, and your pets. Take your pet for a walk in the woods and enjoy the fall colors.
Be Prepared for Shorter Days
With the cooler weather, comes shorter days during fall. We get used to the long summer nights that it is easy to be surprised how quickly it gets dark outside. You don't want to go out for a walk and suddenly get caught up in the dark with no safety equipment. If you decide to go out with your pup, the Ibiyaya Happy Pet Bike Trailer Jogger 2.0 [FS2080BR] or Ibiyaya Hercules Heavy-Duty Pro Pet Stroller 2.0 [FS1780YGTB] both comes with Reflecting plates for safety. This stroller can be used for walking, jogging, or attach to your bike with a trailer. The reflective strips and plates can be seen by drivers, joggers, or bikers.
Stay Visible with Reflective Vests
Attaching a light to your bike and wearing a reflective vest helps you be visible to other road users. If you have a dog collar for your pet, make sure your pup is wearing them. In case they get away or are separated, it is easy to see and locate them. Always keep a flashlight and a first aid kit in case of emergency. These items can be stored in the large pocket of your dog stroller.
Be Ready for Unpredictable Weather
Weather can be unpredictable, fall weather changes all the time. The weather turns cooler and often wet, stormy, and windy at times. Before heading out for a walk, jog, or bike ride with your pup, make sure you are dressed properly. Wear reflective clothing or reflective lights to be visible in the dark.
For your pup, make sure to keep them warm and dry. The Ibiyaya All Terrain Turbo Pet Stroller [FS801B5] is perfect for the outdoors, rain cover can be purchase separately. The Turbo Pet Stroller comes with air-filled tires, rear-wheel brakes, and a 360 degree swivel front wheel for easy maneuverability. The Pet Stroller with Trailer is also another good option.
If you and your pup love to go out and about in good or rainy weather, the Explorer Transparent Pet Carrier Plus [FC1752LBG] is an option. This is a 3 in 1 shoulder bag, a backpack, and a front carrier, all in one! Perfect for small to medium size breeds. Comfortable and padded inside for coziness. This is a safer way to take your pet out for an outing.
Stick To The Paths You Know
Dogs like to explore and have fun, at night time, it is best to stick to the usual paths to avoid getting lost. There are other nocturnal creatures around like raccoons, skunks, and nighttime creatures that you don't want your dog chasing after them. Walking in populated paths means fewer animals around. Stay in a well-lighted route to be safe.
As pet owners, we care for our pet's safety. They have routines as humans do. Whether it is cold or wet outside, pets enjoy being outdoors. Stay healthy with daily exercise with your pets.
