3. How to make your dog visible to cars
Why it’s dangerous: Getting hit by a car is single worst accidental killer of dogs. Help your dog stay safe by training him or her to stay by your side, and make it easier for drivers to see them on the road.
Solution: When you’re walking or running with your dog at dusk or in the wee hours of the morning to avoid the heat, make sure your dog is wearing something reflective, so that cars can see you both. You can buy leashes, collars, and harnesses with reflective features or simply purchase reflective tape and place it on dog gear you may already own, suggests Rachael Ziering, executive director of Muddy Paws Rescue NYC. We like the NiteDawg LED collar from Nite Ize, which ranges from $14.59 to $19.99 depending on the size. It’s also water resistant in case your dog can’t help jumping into the nearest body of water.
