    I tested a few different lighted dog collars a few years ago and posted my evaluations.

    I didn't like single lights that clip on the D-ring because the dog has to be standing just right in order for you to see the light.

    I did prefer those with a number (say 8-10) of flashing LCDs on the collar because there were fewer positions the dog would be in that would obscure them.

    I did a quick Google for lighted dog collars and found one (AuroraLite) that looks professional grade.* Can't post the link because I'm typing on a public library computer that doesn't allow me to copy & paste for whatever reason.

    (I Googled it again and if I've remembered correctly it's http://www.auroralites.com )

    I use a similar type of flashing collar light for my crew during the winter. On cold, dark mornings and evenings when they are driving me crazy and need to go for an off leash run, I use the collar lights. I would never let them off leash in the dark otherwise so for me they are brilliant. I try to avoid walking in the dark though...I hate it!

    DefaultLighted dog collars

    I've googled "lighted dog collars" and looked at a variety.

    I see that the type combining a reflecting surface with an internal luminance driven by L.E.D.s has a lot of popularity -- there are now many brands.*

    Perhaps they have improved since the time I tested several.* The best of those came in third among the collars I considered, behind 2 collars with LEDs.* At that time they were just not as easily visible on a dark night as those with a number of flashing LEDs.

    I think -- at that time -- the lighted collar I judged the best was that by Visi-Pet:

    http://www.visipet.com/index1.html

    Their lights (at that time) were more easily spotted at a distance than the reflective/luminous strips.

    The Visi-Pet has some reflecttive stitching but does NOT have relective strips. But some reflective tape could easily be added between the LEDs if desired.* And it would probably be more highly reflective than the double duty material used in the others.

    STRONG SUGGESTION: If you DO decide to order a lighted dog collar, the first thing you should do is make a dry run on replacing the battery.* Several mfrs have such cruddy or flimsy battery compartments that you almost destroy the compartment in the process.* If you got one of those, send it back and ask for a refund.

    Disclosure: I know know one in the Visi-Pet company and my only connection with them is being a customer.
