Rechargeable, Clip-On Collar Light

Fall days can be lovely and crisp, but they’re also darker than the summer – and when your dog wants walkies, they’re not going to adjust their schedule, meaning you’ll be roaming your neighbourhood together in less light than before. To improve visibility, invest in an LED collar like this one. It features six super bright LED beads making it visible from up to eight kilometres away and is lightweight and USB rechargeable. This light is also suitable to clip onto a cat’s collar for nighttime adventures outdoors.

Why your pet needs this:

  • Safety and visibility at night
  • Waterproof for use in all weather conditions
  • Rated 4.4 out of 5 on
