The “Float-A-Pet” system is both a pet locator and safety system for pets. To find your pet at night, the collar illuminates solar powered LEDs around the neck of a pet. For safety, the collar includes an integrated humidity sensor that detects moisture and if you pet is submerged in water, automatically triggers the onboard CO2 cartridge to inflate and provide a floating life preserver.

    hahaha, this is way too much. If it is reusable I cant see myself not throwing my dog in the pool just to see his expression when that thing inflates. too funny

    If the collar gets hung up on debris while in running water, won’t the animal die of hypothermia after a short while?

    Perhaps it would be better to own a larger animal or keep your smaller animal on a leash?

    Hmmmm. I’m not sure that solar powered LEDs would be my first choice for nocturnal illumination.

    FINALLY! I am sick and tired of hunting for my dog in the floodwaters every other day. This will save me hours of search and rescue time every year.
