Keeping our dogs safe is always important and we do many things to protect our best friends. Visibility is perhaps the most important thing we can do to help keep our beloved furry friends safe from the multitude of dangers that await them. And thanks to the wide array of polybrite illuminated dog collars available on the market today, visibility is easy, affordable, and fashionable. Desirable Features in a Polybrite Illuminated Dog CollarSize
Correct fit of your polybrite illuminated dog collar is essential to your dog's comfort and safety. The ideal fit for the Polybrite Illuminated Dog Collar should sit high on your dog's neck and allow for one to three fingers to fit between your dog's neck and the collar, depending on the size of your dog. If your dog is very small, (under 20 pounds), leave only one finger's width between the collar and his neck.
If you have an average, medium-sized dog, go for a two-finger fit.
If your dog is very large, a three-finger fit may be better.
You will also want to consider you dog's hair coat and head shape when fitting your polybrite illuminated dog collar. A finer coat and slimmer head will require a snugger fit than the heavier coats and boxier heads to ensure that your polybrite illuminated dog collar does not slip off inadvertently.
Ability to clean and Durability
Polybrite illuminated dog collars are made from lightweight, durable materials that are both easy to clean and resistant to weather and water. Keeping your polybrite illuminated dog collar clean and in good repair is important to providing your dog with the safety of visibility whether he is swimming, hunting, working cattle, or just walking with you on the lead at night.
Safety is the bottom line. The polybrite illuminated dog collar provides the safety of visibility by illumination and reflectivity. When the power source is activated, the polybrite illuminated dog collar will emit either a steady light or a flashing light, visible up to one mile at night. When the power is off, the polybrite illuminated dog collar is also highly reflective.
Ideal Choice of a Polybrite Illuminated Dog Collar
Most polybrite illuminated dog collars are made from a durable nylon material; they are equipped with snap together, quick release buckles. The battery packs vary from small plastic containers to Velcro pockets. All are made to be weather and water resistant.
If you have a medium sized dog that will not overly strain the quick release buckle, you may want to use the polybrite illuminated dog collar as your primary collar, complete with ID tags and a matching polybrite illuminated leash. If your dog is larger or particularly powerful, you may want to consider using the polybrite illuminated dog collar only for visibility and carrying his ID tags while attaching your leash to a collar with a standard buckle. The polybrite illuminated dog collar is not meant to be used for restraint. Similarly, small dogs (under 20 pounds) should wear a harness for restraint and a polybrite illuminated dog collar only for visibility. In all cases, a polybrite illuminated matching leash will add to your dog's visibility.
