The Weirdest Light Up Dog Collar

The Weirdest Light-Up Dog Collar

If you’re a proud dog owner, you probably know the importance of keeping a close eye on your furry four-legged companion when walking and playing with him outside. Looking away for just a brief second could result in your dog darting off in the direction of another animal. While there’s no substitution for an enclosed, fenced-in backyard, you’ll have an easier time watching your dog during the evenings and nights by using the weirdest light-up dog collar.

Like other dog collars, it features an adjustable strap that’s placed around your dog’s neck. There’s a single metal loop to which you can secure a leash. This collar, however, features light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs embedded into the fabric itself. When turned on, the LED bulbs illuminate the collar so that you can easily see your dog at night.

According to a survey of over 1,000 pet-owning households in the United States conducted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), 15% said they recently lost a dog or cat. For pet owners, dogs and cats are members of the family, so it only makes sense to keep a watchful eye over them.

The weirdest light-up dog collar will illuminate your dog wherever he goes, reducing the risk of him running off unseen during the dark of night. Just place it around your dog’s neck, adjust the strap so that it’s not too tight nor too loose, and activate the LED lighting. Once illuminated, your dog will be easy to spot even during the pitch-black midnight hours.

Some dog owners might be reluctant to purchase and use this light-up dog collar, fearing that it will cost too much money to replace the batteries. Although there are other light-up dog collars that use disposable batteries, this collar uses rechargeable batteries. When the collar dies and stops lighting, just recharge it using a micro-USB cable and you’re good to go!

The weirdest light-up dog collar features several lighting modes, including steady glow, quick flash, and slow flash. According to the manufacturer, the steady glow mode offers about two to three hours of continuous, steady illumination on a single charge; the quick flash mode offers six to eight hours of quick-flashing illumination on a single charge; and the slow flash mode offers eight to 10 hours of the slow-flashing illumination on a single charge. Regardless of which mode you use, the weirdest light-up dog collar only takes about two hours to recharge.
