This is a very bright light. However, it is difficult to turn on - there is a small button on the side that you have to push and hold. It says to hold for 3 seconds but I have had to hold for more than 10 seconds to get it to turn on. Then, when I want to turn off, it has to go to flashing mode first after holding for about 10 seconds and then another 10 seconds before it turns off. But, if you hold it too long waiting for it to turn off, it turns back on again! Also, I don't have buckle collars but rather quick release collars so attaching to the collar was not an option; had to finnagle the light onto the clip (not an easy feat). There are lights out there that are easier to use and easier to attach to collars - I would not recommend this one.
The on and off button is so tiny very hard to turn on and off. Battery life does not last 260 hours, maybe if is on the flash mode. I am replacing batteries for the second time in 5 months use 1 hour a day. The best way to use it is tied on the collar. I do like it. Easy to see my dog at night.
I wanted a light for evening walks in our local park where we share the trails with bicycles. I read lots of negative reviews for lots of lights and finally ordered this one, fingers crossed. This light is perfect. I attach it to my labradoodle’s collar with the carabiner that comes with the light. It is easy to put on and remove. The light is easy to turn on and off. I use my fingernail to hold in the little button. I have used it 4-5 times and we’ve gotten a few compliments from other walkers. The light is bright enough to make my dog visible, and not so bright that it annoys her. I recommend this one.
Had light for two days securely attached to my dogs 3/4" e-collar. Put it on based on instructions. Disappeared after bringing him in the second evening. The light itself is great, and will hopefully get refunded/replaced. I would second the idea in another review of using a glue as well
We have had this light since we first acquired(rescued) our Black Lab Jake. First time dog owners, and living out in the country made it somewhat costly to keep our new companion safe. We have tried many collar lights to keep track of him, not to mention the many collars, shock collar, containment systems etc. After replacing batteries in the multiple collar lights that are now stock piled in the doggy drawer, we found ourselves back to this SportDog light. 250 hours of light, and a bright light makes this our best guaranteed way of keeping our Jake safe, and seen by all when out for a walk or out gallivanting. But, this time my husband attached a quick-clip collar hook which he strung the light through, so we can simply take it on and off as needed(we remove it during daylight hours being it does dangle). If it is challenging to turn the light on and off, try using a key. I use my house key to depress the button being it is always with me when I am outside with Jake. I do like the idea, as seen in a previous review, to turn the dome a half turn to turn on and off. I am just not sure my trigger thumb will allow me to apply this trick, and I fear that I may not get it tight enough for to keep it water-tight. I will be ordering more of these SportDog lights, being they would make a great gift for most any dog owner.
I have 2 dogs and a large area of ground at my home, and I let them out early when still dark out and I find it easy to keep track of them with the flashing white light. Sportdog makes a good product, as I have the elec. training collar from sportdog also and both work great with no problems.----BOB
Light is very high quality. A little tricky to turn on and off but once you get the hang of it it's fine. The The clasp is a little weak But still a great product for the price.
My husband has something similar to these for his hunting dogs. I bought two to put on my hound as well, a safety measure for hunting at night. These lights are very hard to open, and neither he or I could ever get either to work, even after reading the directions. Wouldn’t buy again.
Did not get to see how it worked because it fell off my dog's collar somewhere. Hard to attach also.
I love it ... it’s a really bright light. My black lab is 12 y.o and he likes to walk in the woods without a leash. I started to worry about him bc he is old now but with this light I always know where he is.
