Light color vs dark color pack harness.
I'll spare the details of intended use cause I don't want the topic to derail but basically I ordered a black k9 type pack harness (half back only). Of course after purchase I started to think about sunlight deflection vs absorbtion and now I need to make the decision on if I should keep it or go with a lighter color before I use it. Basically, should I go for a lighter color to help with sunlight deflection? Or can anybody offer any experience with such and if doesn't matter much. Especially considering she already has a black coat.
I've read up on the topic about humans and it says there's only a small difference between light and dark colors due to the way radiating heat from the skin reflects off of different color material. But not sure how well this translates to fur coats and dogs.
