My Human Was Nearly Killed Trying to Save my Life- So I Decided to Do Something About It–A Guest Blog Post

Well hello everybody!

My name’s Naraku and my tail is wagging with excitement about doing a guest post for Dakota’s Den.

Thanks Dakota and  Caren!

I’m writing this blog today to let you guys know we need your help!

Let me tell you why.

A few years ago my dad Trevor was hit by a car on an early morning walk with me.

It was still dark outside and the car couldn’t see us.  In America, on average, a pedestrian is hit every 8 minutes.

This is a major problem that needs to be addressed.  We have declared war on this issue and made it our mission to spread the word and raise awareness.

You rarely see a human riding a bike at night without some sort of blinking light.  Why is that the standard for bike riders and not for dogs and dog walkers?  It needs to be the standard!

Our mission is to have a light up product on every dog that walks their human companion at night or early morning. We want to bring awareness to this issue and provide solutions. We hope no one else has to risk their life for their best friend.

To combat this problem we designed a two tier approach:

  1.                  Create a hilarious and amazing video that people will want to share that will raise awareness of this problem.  We use humor to soften a serious issue.
  2.                  Design a solution that people will be happy to put on their dogs and will tell their friends about.

We saw that LED dog products already existed but we couldn’t find companies that were pushing the message.  We don’t want to sell products first and then push the message to sell more products.  We think that is backwards, we want to push the message first and provide a solution to the problem.

We knew we had to make a good-looking product that people would want to show off so I could get my dog buddies excited to put them on.  When dogs and people are excited about a product, they tell their friends.  These products are not like anything else out there.

We designed a series of high quality LED dog leashes and collars.

These Leashes and collars are stylish, durable, easy to clean and replacing the batteries is simple even without an opposable thumb.

We really need your help to get this off the ground!!  We have 2 weeks left to reach our funding goal!

Please check out this short video we made explaining our product and our mission in more detail.

We ship internationally and anyone can order or even just donate to help us out!  If you don’t want a collar or leash, we have some really cool rewards for donations.
