Smile Lighted Dog Collars

Am worried about loosing my pup Shadow in the dark even though my back yard is fenced in. Anyone tried visiglo collars. ?I ordered a small collar cover from polybrite and hopefully it will light her up..

I have a collar with red LCD lights on it. It works fine but I found the main problem to be that my guys hair covers the collar and makes the lights harder to see. It definitly works best with short cut hair on your Hav.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

I haven't used the LCD collar before but I can't see that it would really help much. I know first hanad it's hard to find a black dog pooping in the dark LOL! I had my DH install motion sensor lights everywhere! You can get ones that hard wire in or ones that are solar and require no electricity. The bonus is they make your home safer from burglers too!

I never had a lighted collar, but I did have a little blinky thing that you could turn off and on for my yorkie at night because I couldn't find him in the dark either. It really helped. I'd just turn it off when he came in.

We just installed the motion sensor lights and they work great.
When we go walking at night Max has a blinking light attached to his collar.
We go down to the school at night and let the dogs run around off leash.

Thanks, I thought the same thing... when their fur is long, how well can you see the collar and they aren't cheap..I just gave Shadow a puppy cut as her fur was really long at 4 months.. It is a little choppy but wanted her to get used to someone gentle as don't know how any of the groomers are by me yet...

I also thought about getting one of those but was concerned if Shadow would try to chew it if it hangs too low or is a bit heavy but those look like good ideas and not as costly...many thanks
