Whether you enjoy taking your dog on nighttime roadside walks or just like being extra careful when it comes to your precious furball’s safety, investing in a light emitting diode (LED) dog collar can be a very good idea. And just like the name sounds, these collars feature LED lights inside a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) tube. These diodes are powered by a battery that you can usually recharge using a USB cable. And when they’re powered on, these devices light up in bright shades, which should help make your furry friend more visible to passersby while also helping them stand out from the other animals.
But if you’re planning on getting a new LED dog collar, there are some things you should keep an eye out for. Here are some features that can come in handy:
If you’re a pet parent who likes taking your pup on hikes and riverside walks, your new dog collar needs to be able to stand up to weather and moisture, and a waterproof product can be very useful in these kinds of conditions. And this should also help make sure that the LEDs inside your device don’t get damaged when it starts to pour. Other than that, you should also look for collars with some sort of shock resistance too, which can help prevent damage from falls and impacts.
A lot of dog collars come in a trimmable design, and this feature lets you cut a collar to your desired length. This can really help take some of the guesswork out of choosing the right fit for your dog's neck, too. Just make sure the core length of a collar is greater than the circumference of your dog's neck.
You should also make sure your new collar's LEDs are bright enough for your specific area. So, if you live in a place where fog's pretty common, then you should probably get a dog collar that lights up very brightly. And you can get a pretty good idea of the distance a collar is visible by going through its product description and reviews.
