Dog’s are enthusiastic walkers. Anytime you call on them for a walk, they bound up to you as if it’s a treat on offer. Usually, early morning or afternoon is the ideal time to walk dogs. But, dog owners with a busy schedule prefer night time because of the calm and quiet and no traffic hassles. And such people need to keep in mind the following safety tips for a night stroll with their companion.
Leash Them Well and Good
First thing you need never forget is to ‘Always leash your dog at night’. Use shorter leashes to keep them from wandering out of reach and risking accidents or animal attacks. If you use retractable leashes, keep them for their day time walks. For nights, use a reflective leash instead that is bright enough to help you spot your dog even in the dark.
