Enhance Your Dog's Visibility in Low Light
Ensuring good visibility and safety during nighttime walks is paramount, especially when it's dark outside. Equipping your dog's collar, harness, or leash with safety lights not only helps others see you and your dog but also allows you to keep a close watch on your pet when it roams freely. Safety lights are particularly crucial if you live in a city, where encounters with bicycles and cars can pose risks to both you and your dog. Orbiloc's lamps are versatile and can even be used during activities like running, easily attaching to your arm.
Optimal Placement of Safety Lights
Position the safety light, such as those offered by Orbiloc, to ensure it is visible from multiple angles. In cases where your dog has long, thick fur, the light might be obscured by fur, so consider placing the light higher up on the dog's leash. If your dog is wearing a harness, the lamp can be securely fastened to the dog's back.
Will the Light Disturb Your Dog?
When positioned correctly, the light should not disrupt your dog, as it sits behind the eyes on the collar and does not blind the dog. Dogs quickly acclimate to the light emitted by the lamp when in complete darkness.
Visibility for Both You and Your Dog
It's advisable for dog owners to also have personal lights during nighttime walks. This allows pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists to see both you and your dog, as they will spot two sources of light. With a sturdy carabiner from Orbiloc, you can effortlessly attach a safety light to your jacket or any preferred location.
Blue Lights and Legal Considerations
Using Orbiloc's safety lights comes with one important consideration. Blue lights on vehicles are typically reserved for police and emergency vehicles, and it is not legal to have them on your car. However, you can use the blue light on yourself or your dog, including the flashing function. The law specifically regulates blue lights in and on vehicles but does not extend to people and animals.
