Tick Tock, the Clocks goes Back
Created: 11th October 2014
As the clocks go back Sunday the 28th October, spare a thought for the millions of dog owners in the UK, many of whom will now be walking their dogs in the dark before or after work.
The Dog Trust advises:
- Keep control of your dog and don't let him off lead unless you are in a safe area which is well lit
- Consider wearing high visibility clothing such as jackets, vests or reflective strips on your clothes so you can be easily seen by motorists
- A reflective collar and lead or a high visibility coat or flashing collar will also increase your dog's visibility in the dark
- Perhaps work out a winter dog walking route which, in urban areas, includes both pavements and street lighting
- If there is no pavement, walk against the flow of the traffic and keep your dog on the side farthest from the road
- Carry a torch which will help you be seen and also enable to you see to pick up your dog's mess. Or, consider a head torch so your hands are free
- Walking in groups can be safer than on your own
- If possible, take your dog in the car to a place where you can walk away from the roadside. Many parks and sports fields have lighting but always check that dogs are allowed first
- Make sure your dog is well trained and responsive to commands. For tips on training visit www.dogstrust.org.uk
