Giveaway: Pup Light Lighted Dog Collar

Have you seen the PupLight in action? The PupLight, in a nutshell, is a small flashlight that you can attach to your dog collar to light their path when you go for a walk in the dark. The PupLight was named the most "Innovative New Product of 2006" by HGTV and the AC News Gadget Guru. You can read about why it received these accolades right here.

I wanted to show you a photo of Peaches testing out the PupLight, but she wasn't exactly in a photographic mood last night when I was trying this out. First of all, she kept trying to bite the light off of her. Second of all, she's a major escape artist and had I tried to snap a photo of her with one hand, she would have figured out how to get away, so I didn't try it. But you can get a good feel for how it looks in the doggie you see above.

Peaches eventually got used to wearing the light and did okay with it on our walk. The light path itself wasn't very big, so I'm not sure how helpful it would be to the person doing the walking, but as far as making the dog visible, mission accomplished.

Two important things to note: It appears the collar this comes with isn't meant to be the dog's primary collar. It's designed to slip over the dog's head. What this means, is that if you try to use it as the dog's primary collar, the dog can easily slip out of it while you are on a walk. Just know that ahead of time. As such, it doesn't have a place to attach a leash to. You really should have another collar on your dog in addition to this one.

At any rate, it's an interesting gadget and if you own a dog, you might enjoy having one. You have the opportunity to win one now. Here's how:

I take my dog to the park at night and would love to see if he stepped in poop. Did you know that puplight was a featured product on "Million Dollar Idea", The Big Idea With Donny Duetsch? I tweeted this @rose_silly and fb link at Rosalie Deangelis and i 'like' it too!

My dog and I do winter events with our local dog meet up group. I don't go out much at night, but the dog goes out in the fenced yard and I would love this light since we live in a rural area.

When I went to the Puplight website, I learned that PupLight was named "Best Lighted Dog Product" by the Whole Dog Journal, January 2008.

Dark, cold, doesn't matter... I still walk my dogs. They need the exercise and fresh air. That's what being a pet owner is about!

trixx said...

I learned that PupLight makes dogs visible up to a mile a way. Wow that's some distance!
