    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    Today we are looking at the SportDOG locator beacon lights. These are designed to give your dog some light while he's out running. It's not for him to see, it's for vehicles to be able to see him if he's out. Maybe running across a road is a possibility. It's also designed to help you keep up with him so that you can see them when they're running.

    What I like about these lights compared to some of the other lights that are on the market is that they're designed to fit on the collar strap. We've got several other lights that are on the market, and we've got some collars that have lights that are part of the collar. And everything that you've got there is going to be underneath the dog's neck. A lot of times it's going to make it hard to see. It also makes it hard to see if the dog is going away from you.

    So what's nice about these is that they go up on top of the dog's neck on the collar strap. It makes it easier to see. We've got five different colors. They come in red, blue, orange, green, and white.

    Two different things they do. You have the solid light or you've got the little button here on the front. To change it, you hold it down. It goes to a flashing light. To cut it off, you hold it down again. It's going to come back solid. Keep holding it. When the light cuts off, you are turned off.

    I've got one here that's on a strap. They are set up where they can go on a one inch strap or a three-quarter inch strap. You can position it depending on what size dog you have.

    I like to run two lights on one strap. So, I've got two lights. We're going to position it on the dog's neck. So now it's on your dog's neck and you've got sort of a Y here. So, depending on which way he's moving, we've got lights.

    You can almost treat it like a boat. You know, right side, left side. But, really, it's just giving you visual no matter which direction he's pointed in. and I think that helps.

    They are reasonably priced compared to the others. You do not have remote control over them. So you turn them on, they're on. You turn them off, they're off. But for guys that are running at night, or if you are running a dog late in the day and you want to put it on as some added security, they work great for that.

    The other thing, too, is that they're not just limited to dogs and collars. They come with a clip. You can attach this clip to them and then you can hang it on yourself if you need to. Some folks have used them on their kids for Halloween, that type of thing.

    It's a neat little light. It's got a lot of different uses. We've had really good luck with them.

    Very nice
    April 14, 2021
    I love it!
    I I'm planning on using the clip & because my dog's collar has a ring on the back, the light will fall onto his back.
    Pros
    • You can choose type of speed.
    • Batteries included.
    Cons
    • If you don't have an E-collar, you want to have a collar with ring on the back.

    Awesome Bright Lights
    January 3, 2021
    I have purchased 4 of these now. The first was amber which lasted several years. This time I ordered green, blue and red. I find the green to be the brightest. The control button on these is much easier to push than the first one purchased years ago.

    I use them daily to keep track of the dogs while out at night. Totally recommend this product

    Pros

    Collar light
    July 1, 2021
    The light works good and I’d bright. If you have a collar with a Name brass name tag the position of the light is limited. Also if you have a collar with a center ring the location of the light is limited. If you can’t fit the lift on your
    Collar due to a name plate or the thickness of your dog collar, I found the light is a little bulky to hang from the collar ring with the supplied strap
    Pros
    • Bright
    Cons
    • Limited fitment

    Does not fit on a 2 ply 1 inch collar. Have to use the carbiner carrying device. White light is pretty bright and will work for early morning decoy placement so I know where my dog is. Tough to turn on
    Pros
    • Bright
    • Tough to turn on and off so the dog will have problems starting it
    Cons
    • Doesn't slide onto 1 inch 2 play collar
    • Tough to turn on and off, need a pointy object to activate
    • Tough to set up carbiner strap provided

    Deaf dog
    March 19, 2021
    I have a deaf dog and the light is prefect for helping me keep up with her during night walks. I chose the white light. The claps is very convenient, she even stops at the door and waits very patiently for her light.

    Good product, difficult to turn on and off
    December 7, 2020
    I use this light regularly with my Brittany. Lasts a long time, waterproof but the on/off button is very small. It also is so slightly raised that it is diffcult to find the correct pressure. I end up taking my glove off and using the point of my keys to switch on/off. Could be a better design.....
    P.S. I am 63 y/o, good eyesight, but not perfect.
    Overall, very satisfied with GDS products and service.

    Very bright, met my expectations. Only complaint is the on/off button. Rather hard to operate. Not a deal breaker for me though.
    Pros
    • Very Bright
    • Stays on collar
    Cons
    • Hard to operate the on/off switch

    Great light
    September 16, 2020
    Nice light. Very bright. The only drawback for me is it’s hard to turn on and off, I have to use a pointed instrument to get the button to work, not a deal breaker for me as I carry a pocket knife anyway. Happy with the light.

    I just love it - using it often, works great, good battery life. Easy to install and operate. I can see my dog in dark far away. For those who do walk late in dark, specially when there is no light on the street and your dog is darker skin - perfect protection - not just YOU see the dog - but the unexpecting driver does too. Tracking at night in woods another good use. I use 2 on 1 collar at 10 minutes to 2 positions. I also purchased this for friends (also few for breeder of my pudelpointer in Czech republic) - everybody loves it. Great present.

    The visibility of the light for tracking the exact location is ideal for early morning , dusk and at night. Our GSP is brown so he is difficult to see. Good safety beacon too. On/off button a bit of challenge. Good product- purchased three.

    As usual, everything from GDS is top of the line. I use this when Jasper(GSP) and I go out just before sunrise so I can keep track of him in low light. Plenty bright and has never failed, even after days of swimming.

    Great especially for the 0430 walks before work. I used carabiner to attach the light to his lead, and I've had drivers comment that the flashing is even more visible than my reflectorized vest.

    We are running at night during the summer to beat the heat. We run around some public roads. Not only do I feel my dogs are safer now, but I can easily tell now when my dogs cross first lol. One time dogs crossed a bean field at just over a mile according to the Garmin. Could still see these lights pretty well!

    The light fits perfectly on the shock collar that we bought before here. The light shines really bright and can be seen at least a half mile away. The two modes work both extremely well, but preferred the constantly on.

    So far these lights have been great. I recently purchased the Garmin Delta XC e-collar and these have been a great addition. When I am out running/training my dog at dusk or in the dark these make her extremely visible. I purchased two and position them on each side of the e-collar so I can see here from either side. I read the reviews complaining that they are hard to turn on and off but I like the buttons and their difficulty. They are not going to turn on/off by themselves.

    I wish I had a couple of these things years ago. They really do make your dog visible and safer at night.
