Fantastic for Water Loving Dogs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had light-up collars for my dog in the past, but she loves the water so much that the lights fail really quickly. This light seems really sturdy and is visible from far away. Best product I've tried to date for late evening outings with the pup.

High viz for the pups

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These beacons are great for those walks before the sun comes up or after the moon is out. As other reviewers have stated, the light is super bright and can even help illuminate the terrain around our dogs. I have had zero problems with durability. We use the clip on the back of the light to secure it to our dogs collars rather than the ring as pictured above and the lights are always very secure when we return home. I also love that this is a non-intrusive light so it doesn't bug our pups in the least. Wouldn't buy anything else.

Typically I take my pooch for a run once in the morning before work and once after dinner. I feel as if this really helps others see her and also myself especially during the winter hours and through the snow. Defiantly worth the buy.

Keeping the pup more visible

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great for those early or late walks, especially in the winter months of less light, and keeping the pup more visible.

a life saver

we use these every time we take evening walks or go camping. This keeps us visible to motorists and helps us locate our dogs when they are running around in the dark. I recommend this for anyone with a dog.

Got to keep the dogs safe

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this for when my mom walks the dog at night. The safety light really helps so that people who are driving have a heads up of where your at when your walking during the night. Simple to use!

never lose your dog in the dark

never lose your dog in the dark

I use this beacon pretty much every night. I turn it on when we leave the house in the dark and Ramsey is off leash. Not only can I see where he's going but cars can clearly see him as well. It's especially useful when you're in complete darkness somewhere.

I have yet to change the battery but obviously I don't use it all that much. And Ramsey hasn't gone swimming with it so I can't comment on the watertightness. But he has played in deep snow and been out in blizzards and I've never had a problem with it not working. I've also never had a problem with it coming off his collar.

Dog Awareness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This unit is not only a guiding light, but a beacon of hope and safety. Rest easy knowing that your family pets can remain visible even in Dark Times. The unit is very bright and visible from great distances.

its also cool to see the dog runnin' around with that light

Dog Awareness

anddddd its Gone

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

the light itself is simple and bright, but it's the most expensive light like this on the market, and it fell off my dogs harness and got lost within a week, despite the clear marketing that it's designed for 'ruff' usage. $20 bucks (+ S&H) , lit on fire and thrown away.

Thank-you for posting. I will continue looking.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a bright light, but that's why I love it. Hope it lasts through our evening snowshoes this winter!
