Like that TV commercial used to say, “It’s 8 o’clock. Do YOU know where you kids are?” We suppose that good dog owners should apply the same logic to their canine friends and keep an eye on them at all time. That’s hard enough during the day, but at night can be downright impossible. You can get a little help from something like the Glowdoggie. It’s a waterproof (not just water resistant) LED dog collar. But not just any LED dog collar. Made from “Superflux LEDs which have a lifespan of about 150,000 hours (roughly 17 years) and are of the same high quality as are found in many premium German cars such as Mercedes Benz and Audi.”
Glowdoggie™ lighted dog collars have a patented, built-in motion sensor that automatically turns on the LEDs when the battery section is facing downwards or sideways, and slowly turns them off when the batteries are held in a motionless, upwards position for over 45 seconds. It’s as simple yet as technically advanced as that. You just slide it on over the dog’s head and off you go.
The only catch is that it’s not a collar in the traditional sense; you can’t tie a leash to it and are still supposed to use a separate collar for that.
It’s $50 and comes in a variety of colours, Neon Green being the most popular apparently.
