    Every year we go with a group of friends to an all night beach BBQ. I want to take my dog with me this year, but in order to keep him in sight, I thought of attaching a flashing light to his collar. I want a good quality one and could kick myself as i saw some at Crufts but didn't buy any.

    The dogs are off lead all night as we are the only people on the beach and there are no roads nearby. Also, as this takes place in Scotland and at midsummer, it doesn't really get properly dark, but I'd still like a light just to be able to see him clearly if he decided to go off with his doggy pals for a spell.

    Anyone have any recommendations/suggestions?

    I got one from PetsatHome that just clips on, it was only about £3 & has lasted quite well

    I need one that is waterproof and visible from a fair distance.

    Sorry, should have mentioned this!

    Do you have a link for The Range, Hazel?

    Hawksport, what a brilliant idea! I never thought of that. They must be at least showeproof and I think that may do as he doesn't actually swim (unless he falls in!)

    I shall google some bike stockists.

    You can get a set of waterproof Led Bike lights that will clip on collars with batteries from Wilkinsons for about £7.00
