The Ruffwear Beacon Dog Light
Why choose a Ruffwear Beacon dog light? In this day and age we are already worried about our dogs safety. With the Covid-19 pandemic recently causing a surge in puppy prices, the potential for losing your dog and them being injured or stolen is more daunting now than ever before. Dog theft is on the rise and losing your dog in the woods, or fields when chasing something can cause that empty, sick feeling we would all prefer to avoid. The thought of losing them is petrifying for many and then there's the worry about dangerous terrain such as cliffs, the sea, rivers, heavy machinery and roads.
We're their companions and we love them so much. Unfortunately, they can't speak to tell us where they are or what's happened so it's down to us humans to keep an eye on them at all times or alternatively hope they are good at barking so we can track them down.
How can I see my Dog in the Dark when Walking?
There are many ways you can see your dog in the dark when walking at night. Most people will opt for a torch to help them see their dog. It is important that the torch you use for your dog has a low beam to ensure you do not blind others and yourself too. Torches can be inconvenient when on public roads because street lights and cars can cast shadows on the road making it difficult to see where you are going. When walking your dog on public roads, make sure you make eye contact with the drivers of any passing cars and you AND your dog should wear reflective clothing and accessories so they can see you clearly.

Are Ruffwear Beacon LED Lights Bad for Dogs Eyes?
Ever since Ruffwear launched their Beacon LED dog light, dog owners have wondered if it's safe for dogs to be running around at night with flashing lights on.
The good news is that the Ruffwear Beacon is completely safe for dogs. Lights shining in your dogs eyes, like flashing lights or headlights on a car, can be confusing and even temporarily blind your dog. You may have seen this happen to some dogs before - they stop dead in their tracks when they see the light. Other dogs might panic and run. It may be alarming, but it's not dangerous for your dog - in fact, most dogs will adjust to their surroundings very quickly.
There are many LED lights on the market that are designed specifically for pets. These lights attach to your pet's collar or their harness, creating a brilliant light that makes them visible at night. While you may be hesitant about using these while walking, remember that these types of lights are specifically designed to help other people see your dog, not to allow your dog to see better.
Since the light isn't shining in their eyes, it has no effect on their vision. They also don't have anything obstructing their field of view, so there's nothing for them to be alarmed about when they look at the light. With that said, it's always a good idea to keep your dog's environment clear of any disorienting lights such as full beam headlights from a car.
