A dog collar is one thing. A light up dog collar is a whole-nother-thing. Perfect for the dog that just likes to get away once in a while. Maybe your dog just likes to hide in the backyard when you go to bring him in at night. Maybe you just need to be able to pick him out of a crowd of dogs at the dog park. Sometimes a light up dog collar can be good so that other people can see him, such as people in cars that may not notice a dog but could notice a bright LED light. Whatever the reason, the light up dog collar fulfills a very specific purpose for identifying your dog and could even save his life. Here are the best light up dog collars on Amazon.

Stay Seen

There are so many different reasons you might want an LED dog collar. Almost all of those reasons are because you love your doggo and want to keep him safe. He's just running into the woods because he saw a squirrel or running across the road because he smelled something tasty. Situational awareness is not a dog's strong suit when curiosity has the better of him. Wrap an LED dog collar like the one from Blazin' Safety around his neck so even if he can't see, other people can see him. That one is great because it wraps all the way around the collar instead of just lighting up a portion of it.

If you're going to be out and about with your dog for a while, you might want something that will last a while. Some of these collars, like the Illumifun nylon LED collar, have lighting modes that help you preserve the battery life. A slow flash mode can extend the LED for up to ten hours. Or you can go with an option like the Clan_X collar that combines LED lighting with reflective nylon and a TPU light-guiding tube. This helps make it even more visible and ensures some visibility even when the LEDs stop working.
