Dogs like light too!


At last week's Global Pet Expo, one booth caught attention through two magnificent Golden Retrievers. They showed the PupLight - a flashlight designed for dogs. 

Why would a dog need a flashlight? Excellent question. In my case, we live by a large road, and one of my dogs loves late night walks. I always worry the cars won't see us, and having her carry her own flashlight seemed like a good idea. It works; all of a sudden, the cars gave wide berth.

The PupLight comes with a collar and an extension band for larger dogs. It can also be worn on the dog's regular collar. The light is very bright, and it hangs down a little so it's not easily shaded by a long coat.

The triple LED lights allowed my dog to see what she was doing - and I could see what she was up to. It also made cleaning up easier; I've tried carrying a flashlight myself, but that becomes complicated when holding a dog, a bag, and possibly a cell phone. Much easier to have the dog help out.

If you're out and about at night, the PupLight is an inexpensive investment that might make life easier.

  1. I've seen these before. They look pretty cool for late night walks in the dark.

    1. This is the first one I've tried, and it's better than I expected. At first I wondered if my dog would go along with having something dangle around her neck, but she seems to like it. :-)

  2. As a follow-up on this post, I'm still using the PupLight for my evening doggie walks, and people come up to talk about the light. Fun way to get to know one's neighbors. =D
