Does Your Dog Need a Fun, Functional, and Fashionable LED Dog Collar?May 23, 2018
The statistics are staggering. The National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy reports that only 15% 20% of lost dogs are ever reunited with their owners. The American Veterinary Medical Association conducted a survey to determine how many dogs go missing on a yearly basis. Their findings cite that 187 dogs were reported as lost with 132 found and returned to their owners. What was the one commonality amongst the 132 found dogs? 48% of the found dogs were wearing collars with appropriate and up-to-date identification. Collars make a difference. Could an LED collar increase your dog’s chances of being returned safely home in the event it is lost?
Just the facts, ma’am!
Perhaps you’ve never considered using a glow-in-the-dark collar on your dog. You consider yourself more of a “free range” owner. After all, Fido is an indoor dog who only goes outside in his fenced yard for pee breaks and is taken out on a slip lead for his daily walk. How could he possibly benefit from a rechargeable LED dog collar?
Here are some considerations regarding the need for LED dog collars.
- Collars and identifying tags get lost dogs home.
While many people feel collars are unnecessary for their dogs, LED collars coupled with tags provide added safety measures that link your pet directly back to you. Whether lost during the day time or at night, your dog can be found and returned to you by any Good Samaritan who happens to stumble across Fido in his travels.
Microchips or tattoos are often not checked by veterinary clinics or shelter workers.
Microchips have become the new trend in pet identification tools. While microchips are certainly valuable, they are often not checked by veterinary or shelter staff. While microchips and tattoos can be easily overlooked, t is difficult to miss a glow-in-the-dark-collar! A rechargeable LED dog collar practically shouts out Fido’s name and address to the person who happens to find him.
- 1 in 3 pets will become lost in their lifetime.
1 in 3 is a powerful statistic. This means if you own 3 dogs, at least 1 of them may find their way out of your yard and onto the busy roadways surrounding your home. An LED collar can help keep your dog visible to pedestrians and motorists thus preventing tragic accidents.
- Dogs are more at risk of becoming injured or killed at night.
Since research shows that dogs are far more likely to become injured or killed at night, it is critical that dog owners equip their dogs with things that help them “stand out” in the dark. A black dog on a lead is difficult for even the most keen-eyed motorist to spot. Making use of a glow-in-the-dark-collar is a great way to alert people to the presence of your dog and prevent unnecessary accidents and injuries.
- 1.2 million dogs meet untimely deaths due to road accidents.
Let’s face it; if Fido is off on his own “live like someone left the gate open” adventure, he’s going to be difficult to spot and trap. With 1.2 million traffic-related dog fatalities every year, the common denominator has to be poor visibility. Whether this lack of clear vision is from Fido speeding around like a bullet or the dark of night, a rechargeable LED dog collar enables him to be clearly seen…and avoided. LED collars are an investment that cost you little but provide great protection for your dog.
