Give yourself peace of mind with an LED dog collar. We have rounded up some good quality, LED dog collars without the hefty price tag.
What is an LED dog collar?
During the dark winter nights or early mornings, you may need extra visibility for your dog to keep them safe and secure. A collar with LED lighting does just that. It helps you to keep track of your dog, keeps them visible to motorists and can help to light your walk.
What to consider when buying an LED dog collar?
There are a couple of things to think about before getting an LED dog collar. You will want to make sure the material is durable, sturdy and above all comfortable for your dog. Ideally, a combination of reflective and lights on your dog collar is the best solution. Extra factors include:
Battery size and weight of the collar. You’ll want the collar to be lightweight and comfortable for your pooch. Some LED collars have an oversized battery pack that can weigh your dog down. Double-check the weight of the collar, especially when you have a small pooch.
Chargeable: All of the collars in this guide do not require batteries and are rechargeable via USB. Take a look at how long the collar takes to charge and how long the charge holds.
Type of light: There are several types of lighting to choose from. Collars that light up around the entire neck 360, can be helpful to see your pooch from far-away distances. Other collars have a single strip of LED lighting on one side, which can reduce visibility at certain angles. It’s also worth noting the type of LED used, the brightest on the market being F5 Super Bright. Many of brands suggest the distance the LED collar can be seen from, use this as a guide.
Sizing: It’s essential to get the most appropriate size for your pooch so it’s comfortable. You should be able to fit two fingers in between the collar and neck of your dog. Some LED collars are sized, while others allow you to adjust them with the snip of a scissors.
Waterproof or Water-resistant: Most of the collars are designed to handle a small amount of water, which is suitable for all weather conditions and for dogs who love to dip in the water.
Light pattern: LED collars come in different settings. While some provide a solid light, others provide options for blinking/flashing lights. Having the option is usually more beneficial.
