Dog E glow is a totally different kind of dog leash & collar. They light up to help your dog be seen. How cool is that?
When the owner’s beloved pet was hit by a car, they came up with the idea of a lighted collar and leash. With a flexible LED tube sewn into each collar and leash, they are visible for up to 1,000 feet! There’s also two settings for the lights – you can have them blink or have them stay on steadily.
I think these would be great for taking your dog on long walks. I like to take walks that area couple miles or go hiking. Sometimes, it’s dusk before I get back and the Dog E Glow collar and leash would be fantastic for that! Especially in the fall and winter, when it gets dark so early.
I have to admit – I was a little leery of how well these would work. When I was playing with them in the package, I kept thinking to myself – these aren’t very bright. But when I got the leash out, and used it, I think it got brighter the farther away I was. Personally, I found the flashing to be a bit distracting, but I could see how others might like that better.
The collars are available in medium and large sizes only. The leashes are available in 6 ft lengths and are a heavy weight for large breed dogs. Dog E Glow has lots of fun patterns, too – including a whole section of officially licensed NCAA teams!
I do wish they made these geared for smaller breeds, too. I would also suggest making the collars for extra large breeds. Perhaps harnesses, too! I totally would have purchased a product like this for my Dachshund, but he wore a harness instead of a collar.
