When we’re boondocking and our dogs don’t need to be on a leash they disappear in the night sky almost immediately, whether they’re five feet or fifty feet in front of us.   Since we have more than a few flashlights on hand, Mark had the idea to put a headlamp around each dog’s neck.  Genius!  No more worrying about losing dogs at night.  I’m not sure why it took us so long to think of this.  If you already have, I applaud you!

I should mention that after dark our dogs don’t spend a lot of time outside so the headlamps get minimal use every night.  Otherwise we would go thru batteries like crazy.  If you have a solar setup, we recommend rechargeable batteries.
