Default lighted collers

i have a lighted coller but it gets buried with all the neck fur and you can barely see the light at night. is there a coller out there that really sicks out at night or won't be affected by all that fur.

I just use a light that clips on to my dogs' normal collars and it works great!

SpotLit LED Collar Light

I use the ones that hang down too. You can see them from quite a distance.

We have a strobe that just clips on the back of the collar. It is very effective and we know exactly where pup is when he is wearing the light.

You don't need a direct line of sight to the light on the collar if that is what you are thinking. When it is dark the light floods the area and it is very easy to track.

I just bought a couple of light-up collars on sale at Target. They were marked down to half price. One of my dogs is a long coated solid black girl and you can see the bright red light through all of her fur.

These are pretty cool - can you re-charge them with either sunlight or via a usb port. (cord included!) The medium size was only around $6.00.
