Ornament for My Pet




Introduction: Ornament for My Pet

Well, i made a blinking ornament for my doggie and it fits just in its collar. It looks really good at night.

Step 1: Taking a Collar Off a Pet.

Here one had to think before taking a collar off from a dog and i say please only the owner of the pet do that job as one may get hurt doing it, and please find an alternative for the dog as it may wonder along and be lost.

Step 2: Assembling the Circuit.

Here i chose to find a 555 blinker circuit for the web http://www.satcure-focus.com/tutor/page11.htm and assembled this one in a veroboard.
Here one may say i am not using the 3v as the battery doesn't last long so i am doing by adding a 9V battery as it has longer life and this is the voltage the IC can handle normally and the IC can work with full potential.
But be sure to add a resistant on the anode of the LED as it may burn out the LED.
I have given the picture below.

Step 3: The Final Product

Give a general description of the Step

    yeah, the buckle on the collar has a hole in the end, that was designed to prevent the collar from being stolen off the dog, i was just wondering where you got yours at because i am looking for one but can't seem to find one.

    Well, here in India we get this type of collar. I bought from a street vendor. It costs me around Rs 50 in Inidan currency. And where are you from?

    why are you so........... Please be free to ask any question.

    Then also it is very easy. You can go nearby a radio shack store and get a small blinking circuit. It cost nothing much, but be sure to buy those circuits which consume less power and its all just how you fit into a collar.

    k... I think i am going to do this with my dad, it probably would keep your dog safe when you take them out for a midnight walk.

    This is a great way to keep dogs safe if they go out at night, so cars see them. Cute dog!
