2. Ruffwear The Beacon Dog Tag Safety Light, £19, monsterpetsupplies.co.uk
The Ruffwear Beacon Dog Tag Safety Light is a clip-on LED light made by Ruffwear. Mainly made for their own brand of collars & jackets. however, as you can see its just a loop clip which can fit on any collar that has a loop attached to it.

3. Canac K9 Lite Safety Flashing Dog Collar, £5.99, monsterpetsupplies.co.uk
The K9 Lites Safety Collar, ok so it lights up well rather flashes. It has a fluorescent yellow reflective material around it. kinda looks like a cat collar. if your dog likes to run ahead of you it has up to 300 metres of visibility. Altho not sure how many dog owners allow their pets to run this distance away from them, perhaps a farm dog.
The collar has two sizes small and medium.
K9 Lites also state that you should use your normal collar as well which would give an indication that it’s not that strong. However, it does the job of seeing your dog in the dark we will give it that.
- 300 metres of visibility
- long life lithium batteries
- looks like a cat collar
- Does not replace a normal collar

Measuring your dog to fit the collar
You need to measure the head not the neck and add on an extra 10mm for comfort so it’s not too tight. But don’t worry as you can also cut it to size when it arrives. Comes in two different sizes 50cm or 80cm we would suggest ordering the larger size, least then you know you can cut it to size and get the fit just right. It’s only a couple of quid more.
Please note this is not a replacement for a dog collar
- Colourful – four colours to choose from, dark blue, red, green and purple
