If it moves, it dies.

PETS can light up our lives, but do you know it's easy to also brighten up theirs with the Yukon LED glow neck piece?
From Hunter, a Germany-based maker of quality products for pets, the Yukon LED tube for dogs and cats is not a collar but a neck piece accessory designed for style and safety. They have versions for dogs (20-70cm diameter) and cats (18 to 34 centimeters) in various colors such as gray, orange and pink.
The Yukon LED glow tube is ideal for pets being walked out at night, especially if their fur is all black. By just lightly pressing its plastic button switch, the silicone tube will instantly make the pet wearing it all aglow and easy to spot in the dark at up to 500 meters distance.
The soft Yukon LED luminescent tube can be shortened in a snap with scissors for better fit. It comes with a push catch with safety lock so it's easy to put on and off a pet.
Letting pets walk around with matching dancing lights is a fun and effective way to announce their presence. The lights can be made to blink slow or fast or just be constantly still. With a Yukon LED luminous tube, everyone will see your dog or cat in a new light—literally!
The Yukon LED glow tube is rechargeable. It comes with a USB cable that can be simply attached to a laptop to charge for two hours maximum. One full charge can last up to 3 hours.
This special neck piece for pets is also weather- and waterproof so it's no problem if the pet accidentally gets wet or gets lightly rained on while wearing it. When the tube gets soiled or dirty, just wipe it with a clean towel.
We all know how gadgets, especially those manufactured in non-English speaking countries, can have awful if not absurd instruction manual. This product is an exception. Its one-sheet operating instruction is well-written and carefully details how the size can be adjusted and how it should be maintained.
The Hunter Yukon glow tube for dogs and cats will be available in Manila soon, according to its exclusive Philippine distributor, Hofmann DogWorld Philippines, Corp. For now, this product is available in various e-shops abroad and from an appointed local reseller, DogSmart Pet and Accessories, in Davao City.
Dogsmart sells the Yukon LED glow tube for cats and dogs at P360 and P400, respectively (additional shipping fees apply). A little bit on the pricey side but, in return, you'll be so amused to see your pet strut around with twinkling lights. Just remember that you're buying an item of pet fashion, protection and a conversation piece. Cheers to glowing pets in the dark!!
