Rechargeable Collars With LED Lights
At Aussie Wix Blog, we understand that walking your pet during the dark hours can be a stressful experience. One of the inventors of Aussie Wix Blog was hospitalized after he was hit by a truck during a walk with his lovely Bulldog. Luckily he pushed his hound to safety. The problem may have been avoided if he had something to get the motorists attention.
Each year 40,000 pedestrians are hit by cars in Australia. That’s one person every five minutes. What an alarming figure! We made the decision to develop a line of LED dog collars and LED dog leashes that would enhance visibility and allow motorists to see pedestrians and pets. Like almost every great idea, we Google it and found that the collar already existed. We searched all over the Internet and found a few companies that made Australian dog collars with LED lights, but they didn’t seem to think about what dog owners wanted. The products on the market seemed low quality and not properly built. We decided to ask people what they liked or disliked about LED dog products and discovered there was a big opportunity to create a brand around the suggestions from dog owners.
We opened a kiosk, surveyed people on the web, participated in trade shows, spoke with retailers and launched a crowd-funding campaign to gather as much input as possible. We gathered hundreds of suggestions and included the most common functions people wanted. We intend to carry out this same extensive research for every new collar that Aussie Wix Blog launches.
People wanted a good design that appealed visually. A lot of people wanted to include reflective components with LED components to maximize visibility. People wanted the LED lights to stay in place when the leash was hooked up. We asked about colors. We asked them about weight. We inquired about the battery pack. We asked them about the material. We asked about every single feasible element of the collars and leads so we could offer a product that people wanted. It was simple, ask folks what they want and make the collar around their suggestions. Since no one else was willing to put effort into designing a collar and leash that canine lovers demanded, Aussie Wix Blog was born.
