My two ‘crazies’: Bonkers and Shadow

SHINE BRIGHT - BE SAFE!

Our days are demanding, and this means that we get to walk our dogs in the early mornings and late evenings after work. That often means that we are often walking in the dark.

In the park when the dogs are off leash early dawn and at dusk, I was a little worried as I could not always see them. When walking home, I realised that others (drivers, cyclists and runners) found it difficult to see them too. I wanted to keep my two fur~family members safe by keeping them seen. A collar with lights was needed.

FINDING A SOLUTION

Issue #1: Battery powered collars only last for a few walks, dramatically dim and then stop working. The replacement batteries were hard to find, expensive (shopping online one has to pay for shipping) tricky and time consuming to change.
Issue #2: The most common LED collars found were made with wire LED, when bent or pulled (click for video), the wire snapped, breaking the current and causing the collar to stop working.
Issue #3: Many of the available LED collars did not have the adjustable clip sewn into the collar so with one tug, the collar came undone! The Battery area was not secured to the collar so it would slip out. 

The SOLUTION: The collars needed to be rechargeable (goodbye batteries!), not break when bent, pulled or twisted (solution: fiber optics) and overall – a quality made collar with durable materials. Shine for Dogs products can be pulled and twisted! Our products use two slim fiber optic strips for ultimate brightness, flexibility and durability. Our products use multiple high output LEDs (so there are no dull spots) and are rechargeable!
