Not long ago, our family received a Safe Glow Dog Collar to use with our dog Max. I hadn’t even heard of glowing dog training collars before, and I couldn’t be more happy with the way this one works.
Why Would You want a Glowing Dog Collar?
Having a glowing collar might seem like a strange idea, but it makes perfect sense for anyone who takes their dog. . .
- • for a walk early in the morning, at dusk, or after dark
- • out of the yard to play after dark
- • camping or hiking
Imagine playing fetch with your dog at a campground around dusk. Suddenly, he runs off into the woods or down the road. The sun is quickly going down, and you lose sight of him almost immediately. How long will it take you to find him? How will you even know which direction he went?
Being a typical, high-energy dog, Max has run off so many times – not running away, of course, just running . . . and running . . . and running. The scenario above is unfortunately very familiar to us.
With a Safe Glow Dog Collar, no matter how dark it gets, the light from the collar stays visible and makes it much easier to keep track of him (or find him again if he’s run off).
Another benefit is that the glowing collar makes it easier for other pedestrians and drivers to see you and your dog. Very, very important for safety!
How Does the Safe Glow Dog Collar Work?
The collar is made from a strong woven black fabric and has a colored “sleeve” that extends along about 2/3 of the length. A very strong plastic clip secures the collar closed, and it’s very easy to adjust the collar’s length for a perfect fit.
The “sleeve” holds a long flexible plastic strip that lights up when the button switch is pressed. The light can be set to flash quickly or slowly or to glow continuously. We’ve found the we prefer the continuous, non-blinking, light.
The LCD bulb uses a lithium battery and has a 100,000-hour life. That’s a lot of walking and playing!
We’ve been very pleased with the collar. Even when walking Max after dark (on our street that has very few street lights), we could easily see the glowing collar. Many times, we couldn’t see Max’s outline, but the collar still glowed brightly.
If you ever find yourself trying to keep track of your dog in a low-light area, the Safe Glow Dog Collar is the way to go. It comes in several colors and sizes so that you can pick the best one for your dog. (The website lists only Small, Medium, and Large, but the collar is also available in Extra Large.)
