If you take your dog on nighttime walks, you need to check out this light-up dog leash that can help guide your way in the dark.

The NiteyLeash is a fiber-optic illuminated dog leash that is lighted end-to-end to provide a noticeable glow in the dark.

The 5-foot-long water-resistant leash is available on Amazon for $25. It runs on three AAA batteries, which are included when you purchase the leash. The leash’s light has two modes — steady and blinking.


NiteyLeash offers a 90-night guarantee, so you can try it out and if you’re not satisfied, return it for a full refund.

The leash allows you and your dog to be visible from more than a quarter of a mile away in the dark, protecting you both from drivers, cyclists or other pedestrians that otherwise might not spot you.

It also lights up your path, so you won’t trip over any obstacles. It comes in green, blue or pink.


The leash has a solid rating of 4 stars out of 5 from more than 400 customers on Amazon.

“I was looking for a leash that would be visible from all angles; some leashes with LED lights are only bright on one side,” wrote Barbara C. in her review. “This is a rope style with the light running internally through the core of the material. I find the handle to be comfortable and the design of the battery compartment is ergonomic and easy to grip while walking.”

Other reviews praised the leash’s durability.

“I have dropped it several times and it does not break,” wrote Kris D. in her review.

In addition to its practical use, NiteyLeash can also serve as a fashion statement for you and your pup.

“Neighbors all like the look of the blue bouncing leash walking down the sidewalk,” wrote another reviewer named Steve.

Are you ready to go for a glowing evening stroll with your furry best friend?
