At dawn or dusk, it’s critical to make sure your dog is seen. A lighted dog collar or bright collar light is the best way to be sure your dog is seen by cars and to be sure you can see your dog at night. The Vivid rechargeable collar was good for a short period this year, then the rest of the batches had technical issues. We are so sorry, it is such a well-designed lighted collar.
Here’s our top three collar recommendations for 2013
The Niteize glow collar is the most durable and reliable. It doesn’t use LED technology with wiring, it uses a glow technology, so it is less likely to break due to weather, dog fur, dog pulling, and usage. Niteize stands behind their products and this collar has been around for over 10 years. It has a flash and steady setting. This collar is particularly good for helping you see an elderly dog in the dark.
The Dog-E-Lites flashing red and blue collar is also durable and reliable. We recommend keeping the plastic cover over the battery box for double durability. It has LED technology now has a flash and steady mode. It comes in all sizes -including extra small. Dog-E-Lites is a Canadian company and stands behind their products.
The Visiglo collar is the industry’s leading collar. It’s bright and has two modes- flashing and bright. We rate this collar third because it doesn’t hold up as well in the weather. The battery pack is not housed as securing and water-tight.
It also sits on the dog’s collar and has a steady and flashing mode. It is worn by the military, miners, and rescue teams. We recommend this light for medium and large dogs. It’s a bit bulky for smaller dogs but can also attach to their harnesses and leashes.
