LED COLLAR BUYING GUIDE – HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST LED DOG COLLAR
Many factors should be considered when choosing a lighted dog collar. Considering all of these will help you come to a well-rounded purchase that will serve you and your pet for a long time to come.
Durability – this correlates with the price you pay, but that is not always the case. If you are spending pennies on a collar, do not expect it to last as long as a more premium marketed one. The electrical components such as the bulbs and battery pack should be well made and sealed away from water damage and general wear and tear caused by an active dog.
Brightness – One of the most important things about a LED dog collar is the effectiveness of the bulbs. The brighter they are, the further away you can maintain visibility with your dog. Collars that house their LED bulbs inside the collar will not be as bright as ones that are attached to the outside.
Resistance to Water – Dogs, are unpredictable and some love to jump into the water, not only that, but there are weather considerations to think about, and a collar that is not waterproof is suspectable to rain damage.
Price – How much the collar costs will determine if you will treat the collar is a throw-away one that will last you a set amount of time before needing replacing. More premium expensive collars naturally should last a lot longer should you take good care of them.
Batteries or Rechargeable – Many LED collars are now USB rechargeable meaning owners do not need to worry about batteries running down. Rechargeable collars generally cost more.
