Undoubtedly one of the biggest joys for both dogs and their owners alike is the exercise, play and bonding that are all part of the daily walk.
But one of the biggest frustrations that many dog owners will be able to relate to is finding the time in our busy daily schedules to get out and hit the streets with our beloved pooch. Unless you're lucky enough to be able to afford a dog walking service to exercise and socialise your dog for you during the day, often the only time available to fit it in around busy lives is either early morning or in the evening – during darkness.
Dog walking in the dark requires a bit more thought and planning than during the day. As well as keeping yourself and your dog warm and dry (particularly in the winter months), safety and being seen need to be paramount considerations.
This infographic gives you the full list of safety do's and dont's for night time and early morning dog walking, as well as a list of clothing and equipment you should definitely consider to make sure both you and your pup are both comfortable and more importantly well-lit and seen when out on the roads and trails.
