If you live in the city and have a dog, you know you have a duty to get your pet styles up to date, but also keep it safe.
At the end of the day, you both are part of a city where dicing with cars, buses, rush-hour bicycles and navigating bins is an ordinary occurrence.
Do your shoelaces, wave at a friend, take a call and your dog is gone.

Pet Styles, Safe And Fun With Tech
Disco Dog is the world’s first LED dog vest that you can control from your phone.
It displays a variety of vibrant patterns and custom scrolling text in thousands of colours.
You can choose to display a text message or, an animation using the Disco Dog app from your smartphone.
It’s a fun way to celebrate your dog, and also keeps it safe when it is dark outside.
What we like the most, is the “Lost Dog” feature.
If your dog runs away and the connection with your phone stops, the LED jacket will show a “LOST DOG” message.
It is a direct message for bystanders and a call for help from a pup that can’t speak and find way back home.
