Solar Dog Figurines Light The Way Home For Their Masters

in Solar
Among the most charming solar lighting decor that you can use for garden lighting are life-size and lifelike solar dog figurines. They are made of processed polyresin, a material which can be carved with intricate detail. Polyresin also accepts most dyes and paints so that it becomes possible to color the figurines in authentic-looking hues. Manufacturers of statues and figurines usually treat polyresin in order to make it stronger and resistant to cracking or breakage.

Use solar dog statues inside or outside the house

Your solar pet is usually portrayed carrying a lantern in his mouth. In reality, there is a hook on the statue below its mouth and the solar lantern may be hung on it. If you prefer, you can just prop up the lantern on the ground beside the solar dog. Or you could buy two lanterns and have one standing beside the dog while another one is suspended on the hook.

You can place your solar dog at the landing or the base of your front steps. The dog will be keeping perpetual watch at night and providing light for people coming in and going out of the house. Because they make these statues resistant to weather, you can even position the dog on the front lawn. The decorative possibilities are many.

Because solar lights tend to get brighter as the temperature drops, the colder the nights, the better lit will be your front porch. The technology of solar lighting has improved considerably in the past few years. They are now making LED lights that are even brighter than incandescent bulbs - which incidentally, are being phased out in some first-world countries.

Like all solar lights, your pet dog lantern need never budge from its location to be charged. Just make certain that where it is, it gets plenty of sunlight. With one day's worth of charging, the light can last for eight hours, well into daybreak.

Types of solar dogs

Most of everyone's favorite dog breeds are featured among the models of solar dog lights. You have young German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Dalmatians, Boxers, Labradors, Spaniels and others to choose from. The coats of the dogs come in authentic shades that mimic the actual colors of these dogs.

The statues represent young dogs. They are light enough to transport easily from location to location in the garden. However, they are heavy and big enough to make it difficult for your real dog to topple them over.

Solar dogs are also charming in the house

Instead of your electric night lights, you might want to purchase solar dog lights and place them in the hallways of your home. You won't need to use as strong a light for inside the house. You can purchase weaker LED lights for that purpose.

If your kids love pets, purchasing them their own solar dog lights will be a marvelous way to gift them this coming season. These statues stand for the protectiveness of the home and having them can work towards giving your kids a sense of confidence in their home and eventually, in themselves, too.
