First dog post!
I wonder if anyone would recommend a collar or lead or lights to illuminate a small/medium (10kg) dog?
Thank you

i have this light up lead and i also have this harness which lights up (i put a collar on the dog also so i can clip the lead on)

We have a reflective collar and we attach Spotlit LED lights to his collar too.

We also use a head torch for us when it's dark so we have hands free.

Lumitube by Red Dingo is excellent. Nice 360 degree glow smile

The best thing is a high vis dog coat (https://www.doggiesolutions.co.uk/high-visibility-reflective-dog-jackets-7563-0.html). They provide the biggest surface area for reflection and most importantly they work in every direction. Collars or collar jewels only work when viewed from certain angles.

I think it depends on why you need it.

To see a dog off lead in a dark field = a light up collar.

So a dog is easily seen by cars passing on the road = reflective harness.

To see the dog poo so you can pick it up or see where you are going = a head torch.

I have a light up beany hat (Amazon..and it's usb rechargable) Brilliant for picking up poos in the dark as I can just press the button and then don't need a hand for a torch.

And these lights..they come with a band that attaches them to a harness or collar.

I got some like these from aldi in the past that were good for price, could press a button to glow or flash, glow is less distracting on the eyes while onlead.

Did also have a cheap reflective vest for the dog too which was easy to put on over any coats etc.

My very fluffy dog has a reflective julius k9 harness with glow in the dark strips. He also has a couple of key ring lights I attached to it which glow, flash or flash very quickly. Collars don't work for him as they sit too low in his fur smile

Thank you for the advice. The torch beanie is a brilliant idea.
