Default Safe walking in low-light conditions

I am looking for recommendations for accessories for safe walking around dusk & dawn.
I have a miners light for myself, & sometimes put a reflective biking armband around his neck.

Does anyone use little clip-on lights or any other small, lightweight tool?

TIA

There are reflective collars and harness's I think. PetCo/Smart might have them.

If you are crafty, there is reflective yarn. You can also get armbands that light up/flash. If you get a little flashing light, attaching it on his back on his harness is probably better than hanging it from his collar. You might also consider wearing something reflective yourself if you don't already! Happy walking!

I have a leash that lights up. It even flashes if you want it to do that.

There are a lot of different lighted leashes on Amazon. I just posted that one, because that's the one I have. Mine is green.
