The Puppy Wand is black (slate gray). If we reach enough orders, we will make red and other colors too, and offer that as an option before we ship. It just depends on the total number ordered and what other colors people may want. We will do a survey at the end of the campaign.
The reason we use the Red one so much in the video and pictures is that the Black one is so hard to see! Using the Red one makes it much easier for people to see and understand what the Puppy Wand is and how it moves.
The Black one is super-sweet looking in person, it is just hard to photograph well.
We have designed a loop handle for the end of the short leash section. It is not demonstrated in the prototypes we shot in the video, but we expect to ship with it included in the Kickstarted version of the Puppy Wand.
