Principle of operation

Too bright or flashing light is harmful to dogs: decreases the clarity of view. The dog is the first walk can be disoriented, so it is more expedient to use a collar with a nylon ribbon, which partially dries the glow of diodes. For the same reasons, it is not recommended to use a flashing or flickering mode of the luminous accessory.

The glowing collar is presented in the market in 2 versions:

  • with LED ribbon or 1-2 diodes (equipped with batteries or USB port for charging)+

  • with reflective elements (made using special paint or fabric reflecting light headlights).

A glowing dog accessory working at the expense of a diode tape and a built-in switch is considered the most convenient in use.

The backlight mode can be changed at its discretion by simply pressing the button:

Diode collars can be collected with one diode, which is not very convenient for the owner and can interfere with a dog, or with several diodes – greatly facilitates the search for the dog at any time of the day, including white color pets on a sunny winter day, when the animal merges with snow Landscape.

There is another type of glowing collars made with the use of special materials reflecting the light falling on them – they are equipped with reflective ribbons on the edge. Such collar will not help find a dog in the dark, but can save from getting under the car.

Durable linen threads will help consolidate the tape on the collar (the container with a battery for the LED option is better to arrange from the outside of the collar, so as not to create discomfort on the pet’s neck). For reflective ribbon, the batteries are not required – it is enough to choose high-quality water-resistant coating material.
