A to Z Blogging Challenge - Letter RBefore I headed to the Global Pet Expo in March, I asked for suggestions on what to look for. One of the suggestions was reflective solutions for keep your dogs visible at night.

I was eager to learn more about this topic too. Luna almost always wears a reflective collar, but the reflective part doesn’t last very long. I was excited to find a more durable solution.

While at the Global Pet Expo, I found three different solutions. All of these solutions serve different purposes, so there is no harm in having all three!

Before we start, I will admit to failing at picking out sizes for Luna. I feel like a terrible dog mom who doesn’t know how big her dog’s neck is! Because of my failure, some of the photos may look a bit silly, but the quality and purpose of these products is 100% serious.

Spot the Dog from Mudd+Wyeth

Mudd+Wyeth has a whole line of reflective dog wear, called Spot the Dog. Luna tried out the Reflective Protective Collar, but they also make jackets, bananas, and booties with reflective parts. The collar and bandanas attach with Velcro and can go over a regular collar. Because you can put them on over another collar, the are great for quick use like a potty break at night. Both come in a variety of sizes (Luna’s is a bit big for her) and they sell for $15-20.

Mudd+Wyeth is also the maker of the YaffBar, a energy bar that you can share with your dog. While it isn’t reflective, I thought it was a brilliant idea! Why pack two different snacks when you can share?

Collar Cover from Dog Not Gone

Dog Not Gone also has two reflective dog wear solutions: a collar cover and vest. The vest comes in a variety of different sizes and costs $34 or $38.50 depending on the size. As far as I can tell the collar cover only comes in one size, which is significantly larger than Luna’s collar. Because the collar cover slips over an existing collar, it has no Velcro or other way of attaching. The cover can be bunched together for smaller collars like Luna’s and still be reflective. Each collar cover is only $8.50. Because the collar cover involves a little bit of effort to put on, but stays very secure, it is better for longer use like during a camping trip.

Reflective Collar and Leash from Alcott

Reflective Collar and Leash from Alcott

Alcott was one of my favorite new to me brands I found at the Global Pet Expo and we’ll be talking more about them tomorrow. I approached Alcott because I saw their gorgeous reflective collars and leashes on display. Both the collars and leashes are padded, so they are more comfortable for both you and your dog! They also come in multiple color choices. I picked the bright green!

The overall quality of the collar and leash is amazing. The buckle, ring, and clip are durable metal and the fabric is thick and strong. I picked a Medium collar for Luna, which turned out to be a bit big. This of course devastated me because I think this is the best collar we’ve ever had.

The reflective collar and leash combo is great if you want a no hassle solution. Your dog can wear the collar all the time and the leash provides extra reflective spots. You could also pair the leash with a non-reflective collar, but just make sure your dog is visible at the end of the leash.

Collars cost between $11.99 – $13.99 and leashes are between $16.99 – $19.99.
