This collar model is solid, comfortable for the dog and has good performance. It is therefore an excellent choice.”

Waterproof LED dog collar
Nighttime walks with a dog can be fatal for the animal. If he gets lost, he can sink into the dark and disappear, or he can be knocked down. That’s why it’s recommended to put a lighted collar on him.
This model is one of the best products on the market. It offers optimal safety in the dark in the fall and during dark winters. This quality product offers a light that remains visible up to 500 meters.
In the dark, it is a real Christmas garland. In addition, the light does not cut off suddenly when the battery is discharged. It is only the intensity of the light that gradually decreases. It is a good way to anticipate the charge.
This LED collar has a circumference that can vary up to 27.5 inches. It is therefore suitable for small, medium and large dogs. The product also has other qualities that will seduce you:
- It is waterproof;
- It is rechargeable by USB port;
- It is solid and resistant.
This collar is close to perfection: it lights very well, it has a long range… The only problem is that you may find the attachment system difficult. You’ll need a little practice to get it right.
Lighted dog collar
It is often not easy to keep an eye on your dog when you are out walking at night. The only way to keep your dog’s visibility and safety high is with a collar like this model.
This collar can provide a super flashing light to keep your companion highly visible. The product is effective at any time of the day. Your dog stays safe up to 0.5 miles away even when the light is low.
The collar has a circumference that varies from 11 to 15.7”, but another is available on the product page with a size of 19 to 23.6”. So these are sizes for medium and large dogs, not for puppies and smaller sizes.
This lighted collar has a bracket that allows for a comfortable fit. It is made of nylon and ABS material. The quality of these two materials is well known. They are resistant and durable.
The product also offers several other advantages:
- It recharges via USB;

If this collar seduces for its quality, it has some flaws such as the fact that it is not 100% waterproof.

It is a product that has an adjustable size (xsmall, small, medium, large). Its resistance and durability are a given, thanks to the presence of nylon and ABS material. It is therefore a long-term investment that you make.
The Hongfox collar has other strong points that you will like:

Very bright even in the middle of the day, this collar also offers a solar recharge. It has a good autonomy, but has several defects. The switch is badly placed and as for a GPS collar, it turns on or off when the dog moves.
How to choose a lighted dog collar?
I recommend considering these criteria when choosing a collar for your dog:
- The size;
- The power ;
- The functioning ;
- The autonomy.
The size of a dog collar is the first thing you should check. If the collar is not the right size, you risk strangling or losing your dog. The models presented here are adaptable.
In order not to lose sight of your dog, it must be visible from a distance. That’s why you need a strong collar that can be seen from 300 meters and more. You must choose a collar with several flashing modes: continuous, slow, fast. You will be able to choose according to the weather and the time of day.
You should absolutely choose collars with a long autonomy to facilitate your walks. Finally, it is also advisable to choose models with rechargeable batteries. They are ecological and easy to use.
What to remember? Lighted collars are essential accessories if you like to walk your dog. You should take into account the above criteria before making your choice. The safety and comfort of your dog are important.
