I suggest that if you buy this product you never ever hook a leash up to it. Have your dog wear a different collar or harness to attach the leash to, and use this collar just for visibility. The collar and stitching are tough enough, but the battery pack connection is not. The second my dog pulled on the leash the battery pack fell out on the road.
We live in the country so when I saw this item I was very excited. I thought of how much better I would feel being able to see my dog in the dark. When we got the collar I got it out right away first I noticed how the xl collar barley even fit around my labs head. He is a medium-sized dog. Then I noticed how the lights we not working properly. They wont stay on or anything I tried going over the instructions but didnt find anything on there to help. I laid everything on the table just gonna have my husband deal with it later but of course he threw the bag away with everything so I couldnt even return the product. I would rate it a 3 for made quality n just needs a better switch and maybe a reset button. So for us we are out a few bucks but would reccomened looking into product further.
These are worth every penny and more. I live in the country and now when I let my dog out at night I can watch every movement of his nightly stroll. I take a mini break and sit on the steps and can see when he is every second. No more worrying about him wandering off and not being able to find him. I will be purchasing more as soon as they restock his size.
I bought 2small collars for my 14 lb and 25 lb dogs and the collars ate way too big for either of them- not worth returning cuz they were very cheap, and by cheap I mean the quality is poor as well as price being low. One collar continues to stop working even as a brand new item.
3 Dogs, purchased 6 collars. Day one at the park from 5:00 to 6:00 illumination 1 hr, all worked great. Day two at the park it rained, one collar led shorted stayed on until battery went dead. Collar two went dead that morning. Collar three still working one week later (no rain). after second day we do not use.
If walking your dog at night, this makes the dog highly visible. The light up leash can add to the visibility of the pet. This could be a life saver in the dark to prevent the dog from being injured due to lack of visibility to identify it as a pet.
The light is very bright. I only put it on my dog at night, so it isn't getting constant wear. It adjusts and snaps together easily. She has turned it off one time by rolling over on the activation button. I'm very happy with it overall. Much better than the hanging blinking lights that never seemed to last more than a few days.
