Did you know that the LED dog leash is one of the most popular pet safety products around the world? Dogs love running all over the place and are therefore highly susceptible to accidents involving other pets, vehicles, moving objects or people. To show you just how important light up led dog leashes are, let’s take a look at a statistic: 90% of all drivers who run over dogs say in their statements to the police or dog owners that they did not see the animals. If you own a pet, then this should resonate with you and prompt you to grab one of these leashes. If you are looking to make a purchase decision, here are some features you need to keep an eye out for:
Most people have an estimation of the cost of a lighted led dog leash, but you need to stay aware that the cheaper ones have a problem with visibility. A good leash needs to be able to light all the way from the dog’s neck to your hand. This direct line makes it possible for an oncoming driver to see you and the dog should you happen to be crossing the road at night. A lot of us assume that as long as the dog is visible, then all is good. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. A motorist might see the dog alright but fail to notice you behind it. In this scenario in case they swerve, you might find yourself in the direct line of danger. Always go for flashing lights as they are visible from a long way out.
There are different types of batteries for lighted dog leashes. With some, you have the option to recharge over and over again for as long as the unit performs at an optimum level. There are others that can only be used once and will need to be thrown away after that. Your best bet will be on the batteries you can recharge as they are convenient and save on costs. When shopping for a leash, find one that has ‘flash’ settings. This mode allows you to save on power and maximize battery life as the piece is not technically on all the time.
A good dog leash will last for any time period between 6 months and two years. It is hard to predict how long yours will last because it all depends on the use and dog type. Some dogs pull hard while others tend to be relaxed. Some chew on their leashes while others do not. You can guarantee yourself peace of mind and a great ROI by making sure to pick out the most durable leash on the shelves, even if you have to pay through the nose for it.
