How to Choose the Right Dog Collar Light For Your Dog

Dog Collar Light LED collars provide a practical solution for keeping track of your pup during evening walks. They allow you to see your dog from a distance, reducing the chance of getting lost or running into obstacles. Plus, they’re rechargeable, making them a good option for long hikes and camping trips.

But if you’re shopping for a lighted collar, it can be hard to determine what size is best for your dog. To avoid getting a collar that’s too tight and potentially causing pain or injury, you should measure your dog’s neck circumference. To do this, gently wrap a soft tape measure around the largest part of their neck, just below their chin. Once you have that measurement, add one inch for small breeds (that weigh less than 10 pounds), two inches for medium-sized dogs and three inches for large breeds. This will give you the correct collar size, which is usually a few sizes larger than their head measurement.

While some lighted collars feature bright flashing modes, others have more subtle lighting options that can be just as effective for maintaining visibility on your dog during nighttime adventures. The SpotLit is one example—this rechargeable LED collar is comfortable, durable and easy to use. It clips to any collar and comes with a removable carabiner, which allows you to clip the light onto any type of harness or leash. You can set the light to glow, flash or switch it between color-changing Disc-O mode and four preset colors (red, blue, green, and white). It’s also weather-resistant for year-round fun.
