Hi team,

Please find our suggestion for an all weather, super tough dog light.

-WHAT: Highlights & functions

The flare will be rechargeable, waterproof, freeze proof and shock proof dog light that can be attached to a harness or collar.

It will be the g shock of the dog light world.

The flare will be able to rotate through multiple colours to allow the user to customise and pick this best colour for the setting and will be visible over a long distance (plus 5 miles)

The flare will have multiple settings such as strobe, flash, steady and sos pattern.
I don’t believe any dog light has an sos pattern however I could be wrong.
The flare may also have a flare pattern much like an electronics distress flare to allow for easier visibility of your dog buddy should you become separated.

If possible two colours flashing much like a police light would be beneficial.

Should the battery run out the flare will have a glow in the dark coating to provide some visibility to the dog parent.

The flare should be visible from most directions.

-WHY: Specific use & purposes (important)

The specific purpose is to ensure visibility for you and others of your k9 companion whether in your local park, beach or the wilderness keeping them and you safe.
It also provides a purpose of alerting others to your distress through an sos pattern should you be injured or lost.
The flare will be used for all activities with your pooch where low light may be possible.

-HOW: How you were inspired (important)

We have been looking for a tough dog light for a long time but none really last despite being billed as waterproof, shockproof and rechargeable. Normally theydie at the first sign of water and have very basic functions not to mention appalling battery life.
We want a light that is super tough but super visible through a range of colours and patterns including an sos pattern to alert those to a risk or need of assistance.

-WHAT: Proposed product name (important)

The flare

-WHAT: Brief outline/description of appearance

The flare will be a rectangle shape around 3 inches long with leds running the length of it and a clip underneath.

-WHAT: Color options

Silver or black with glow coating. Light emitted colours will range, red, blue,white, orange, green


-WHAT: Material

Waterproof, shockproof, freeze proof

The key here is a tough, rechargeable and highly visible light that can withstand the rugged outdoors.

Thanks

Chris, Sarah and phoebe

This is an amazingly perfect idea especially in the long dark winter nights up in the north these lights could save lives of any dog not just working dogs! I've gone through so many gimmicks light up dog collars and dangles it’s not funny and you either can’t see them or they just don’t stand up to even normal use, which has been so disappointing.

A great idea for 2020. We need specific licensing for selling such items on Amazon though, and different packaging options to lower the risk of damage during transportation. Will submit request to R&D.

I think this is very important, as many light tags are available for dogs to attach to their collars, none have been very bright and often times are so dim, you can lose the brightness from them if you dogs gets as far as 50 feet away. Something very bright so you can track them in the dark, through some fog, and for a longer distance would be perfect. Especially color changing, it’s a nice additive. I would definitely get it, especially for my male dog that likes to run in the dark.

As @Editor said, we need to consider about the problem of specific licensing and shipment. Also, based on the tech we have now, it's difficult to develop this kind of product. But this doesn't mean we can't do it. Our R&D will try to find the solution for it. Thank you for your idea! (y)
