Disco Dog Turns Your Pooch Into the Coolest Thing on Four Legs

Disco Dog is a vest that makes your dog look like it’s heading to a rave. It is hilarious.

A programmable LED-covered vest that can flash thousands of colors, it is designed to make your pup the hippest thing on four legs. 

Beyond turning your dog into a walking dance club, Disco Dog can also display scrolling text messages — so you can let the world know exactly how cool your pooch is.

The vest’s LED patterns, colors, and text are controllable via the Bluetooth-connected Disco Dog smartphone app. There’s also a built-in safety feature that automatically makes the vest display the phrase “Lost Dog” if your pup gets too far away from your smartphone.

No surprise: The project is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter. Party New York, the company behind Disco Dog, is producing just 80 vests for its campaign. 

Sounds cool, right? Well, we hope you’ve got some extra cash, because a small Disco Dog vest costs a pricey $300. Move up to the medium or large vest and you’ll have to pay $350 or $400, respectively.

If you’re really flush with cash, you can opt for the custom-made vest, which costs a whopping $2,500.

Don’t have the cash or a dog to buy a Disco Dog vest for? Then do what we’ve been doing and stream the Disco Dog promo video —and turn into mush at the sight of a tiny wiener dog running around in a flashy vest.
