Safe Trails: Get You, My Pretty

Dog safety leash

With the days growing shorter, walking your dog early or late in the day, in darkness or semi-darkness, poses safety risks for both you and your dog. A prior Safe Trails article explains how products including headlamps, reflective clothing, and LED reflecting bands can allow humans to see and be seen in the dark, but what about our four-legged friends? Fortunately, inexpensive but effective solutions for dogs are readily available. Equipping your dog with an LED collar and/or leash will ensure that not even the Wicked Witch of the West will “get you my pretty, and your little dog too!”

(Note that pets on the Little Miami Scenic Trail—which is only 10 feet wide—must always be on a leash no longer than 6 feet and under control. Please remove all pet waste.)
