Disco dogs: Wunderdog tests glowing accessories

Wunderdog took Sunny, a black dog, Harry the little terrier and our half-blind oldie to the park to test blinking, flashing and glowing dog accessories. If we can make this trio safe, we're in good shape for winter walkies. Here are our favourite products: 

This LED collar is possibly visible from space (ok, approx. 500 meters). It has three blinking settings, can be recharged via USB, is super soft and can easily be cut to size. Available in several colours and sizes. From £7.99 from Amazon.
