Dog safety light

THE SITUATION: If you’re a dog owner, you’ve probably experienced that horrible feeling when your furry friend disappears from sight. Ruffwear’s The Beacon safety light can help put your mind at ease, as its super-bright LED light keeps Fido visible even in low-light conditions. It clips right onto his collar, with two attachment options, and is lightweight and compact enough not to bother him. It’s also watertight, so you don’t have to worry about impromptu puddle splashing.

THE DETAILS: There are three light-mode options to best suit your needs: slow flash, fast flash and constant light. (Some pups may be sensitive to the blinking options, making the constant a popular choice.) The LED light is housed in a specially designed lens that helps distribute the light for better visibility. The Beacon includes two CR2032 coin cell batteries, as well as integrated clip and quick ring attachments. Size is 1.5 by 1.5 by 0.9 inches. Color is red.

PRICE: $16.95.
