Great product, tricky sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The large was too big, and I couldn't adjust it down enough, so I got the medium. The medium is a little tight (I can just barely fit two fingers between her neck), but my dog doesn't seem to mind. It lights up great! Love it.

It works!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought large for my GSD and it fits and works as stated.

The whole concept is simple but for the price, it's good.

The battery I have noticed can last a while if going out for daily 20 minute walks but the light does get weaker after week 2. However, in a dark area, the light is noticeable and my dog is still easy to spot in the darkness.

It is water resistant as I took my dog out during a storm and it never failed. I'm not sure about ocean swims though.

Finally, replacing the battery is not that hard. All you need is a screwdriver and a brain.

A nighttime Necessity!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used this collar with our 5yr old yellow lab for years. We use it on nighttime runs, camping, & any time we're out with the dogs at night & visibility is important. It has held up great through all of its use over the last 4 years. Just got a new one because I wanted the reflective strip as well which I think will be quite handy.

Ordered one for our new pup as well & the Medium fit him great - sizing can be tricky & I wish they had a Large & XL as the large is massive (or more "tweener" sizing). But overall, can't imagine going on any nighttime adventures with my pup without this collar.

Sizes run small

We purchased a medium and I have opened it up to the max to fit our dog. I am worried that the large might have too much excess and the collar is fairly bulky when doubled up to make a smaller fit. It is a great idea for a dog when walking it at night. I let our dog run off leash and being able to keep track of him when he is running through the bushes is reassuring. With the way most people drive their vehicles nowadays having a signaling light-source on fido when crossing the road attached to leash at night almost seems like a must.

I agree, Greg! I've started using it with my dog when we run at nights - even though he's still on leash just for the extra visibility to cars.

No longer invisible !

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased this collar for our black puppy ... with winter upon us and it being dark at 5, it was impossible to see him while walking/playing at night. This collar is great, it flashes, has a steady on, and also has a reflective strip so even when the light isn't on, he can be seen better by cars. Got the leash to go with it, great add.

Great collar, size is tricky

So first of all, I LOVE this collar, great idea, great quality, super useful.
On the downside is that after reading all the reviews and seeing that others had had problems with the collar being too big I decided to go for a medium. I have a lab puppy, she was 7months old at the time I bought the collar and it was a little snug on her. I kept it because we REALLY needed it right then.
She's 8.5 months old now and still fits snug, I am hopeful she won't have a HUGE neck, but I am afraid I'm going to have to buy the Large pretty soon here.
It is worth to say also, that we couldn't keep her out of the water...she jumped in and we called her out right away. When she came out the collar was wet and still working so it can take a little water.

We were able to see her from far so it was really good, it definitely gives you peace of mind being able to see your dog in the dark. We've used this collar for several camping trips and we only put it on her at night a total of probably 30hrs and still working fine.
I would definitely recommend, beware of the sizing though. When in doubt go for the larger size because you can make it smaller. Do not cut it if you have a puppy unless you are absolutely sure how big you pup's neck will be.

I can't see how to cut it (based on the picure-only instructions) and I don't want to ruin it. Would you describe the down-size cutting for me? Thank you!

Best Idea Ever!

This collar is a must have for black dogs at night. We use it camping, on vacation in Montana, and when walking at night. I ordered the size Small which is a bit bulky for our 8 pound pup but adjusts down to fit his tiny neck just fine. Love it!

Great for night-time play

This is awesome anytime you’re letting you dog off leash at night. I use it for playing fetch and going for walks in the woods at night. It makes the dog look like a UFO as he cruises around investigating. Pair with the LED Ball for night-time fetch (see video). It is super fun and super cute!!

Hey Will - do you have a video of the collar in action?

Are replacement batteries easy to purchase?...

Are replacement batteries easy to purchase? I didn't see them listed on the site here (but may have missed them). I'd be interested in buying this collar for my dog, but not if it's hard to locate new batteries for it.

Responded on

The collar uses a CR2032 battery that is readily available at most electronic stores, camera stores, and outdoors stores.

Everything she needed in a light up collar.

It's bright, flashes, waterproof it seems, and as for the sizing complaints, it seems easy enough. My dog is a larger-medium sized dog (50 lbs) and a medium fits her fine. I leave her leather collar on for leashing. This way the light-up collar does not have to be too snug.

my dog neck is 18.5 inch
which size...

my dog neck is 18.5 inch
which size should i buy ?


Best Answer Responded on

If you pulled it tight, through the fur and still got 18.5 inches I would size up to a Large. If you did a rough estimate over fur..then you have some room to cinch it down and go for a Medium.

not recommend

I followed the sizing chart and the collars I ended up ordering were too big. couldn't return them since I already took the tags off and put them on my dogs while up camping. Should have ordered a size smaller. Sizing chart is not true.

The rubber tubing will go threw the adjustable part so you can make it light up the whole collar. Someone said that the collar was only lighting up half, because of them having to size it. If you read the instructions it will show u this. & yes the collar is BIG. I have a 85lb lab and got a Lg & it fit him but I think I will order a Med this time. The collar has been great! My dog swims with it all the time and I have had it for about 6wks & it still works fine. The collar gets dirty and makes it hard to see the light but I just wash it and its good as new. The only reason Im getting another one is because so many of our friends want them so Im stocking up to hand out so they can all be seen and safe.

LED collar

The collar works well and has a good light. My dog has a very short rusty red coat and completely disappears in the park at night. This collar is just what we needed.
I wish there were more sizes; my dog is at the smaller end of 'large' and by the time the collar is adjusted, only half of it lights up. I can see where she is unless she's standing just the wrong way, but as soon as I call her and she moves, then the light shows again.

This collar is great!! It is very waterproof and durable. We go camping almost every weekend and our black lab swims and runs around in the woods and it has held up great! We can always see him. The one thing that I have noticed is that the collar gets a little loose after a few days of wearing it? has anyone else had this happen? I may need a smaller size? I bought a Large for my 78lb Lab. He is only 1 1/2yrs old so I might need a Medium they seem to run Large. Get this if you have a hard time finding your dog at night. It has truly saved his life a few times.

Only way to see our black dog at night!

Our black lab mix disappears in the dark. This collar gives us a way to know where he is. So, we love it. We haven't had it for very long, though -- only about 2 months -- and the light is getting dim. We haven't used it for very many hours. I wonder where they came up with that '100,000 hr LED life' statement in the description! Thankfully, the battery is replaceable. I hope when we get a new battery, then the collar will be bright again.

Responded on

The LEDs are rated for 100,000+ hours not the batteries.

Has anyone had a problem with this collar...

Has anyone had a problem with this collar not lighting? I just bought one and cannot get it to turn on. Is there a trick that I don't know about? Thanks.

Responded on

did you pull out the battery protector? You can use a small screwdriver to open the battery pack and check it. I've had two and love these things.

Love it!

Works great- My dog is completely black so we use this collar on our camping trips, so we can keep an eye on him. Always gets lots of complements too! Ran true to size, and we've used on multiple trips and the battery is still going strong. Would highly recommend!

How water resistant is this collar? Will it still work well after a dog swims with it for 5 to 10 minutes?

A bit dissapointed...

After reading all the raving reviews, I went ahead and bought this collar in a large size since my dog was right on the border between med and large. The collar is definitly very big.

My main complaint is that the collar is not quite as bright as I thought it would be. There is a single LED that shoots into a clear, rubber strip, thus illuminating the red strip (like a fiber optic). The major problem was that with the large size, the LED is not quite strong enough to light up the whole rubber strip. I ended up cutting off half of the rubber, so only half of the collar is actually lit up.

Other than that, a pretty nice safety feature for any dog that plays in the dark. I'd say, it does its job, but I can dream up a more spectacular product using multiple LEDs.
