Every dog needs a dog tag.
Especially if your dog…
- goes out on walks with you
- goes for rides in the car with you
- is left to play in the backyard alon
- is traveling via airplane
Ideally, every dog should wear identifying information on a dog tag attached to their collar at all times. Our dogs do.
Why We Chose These
We have 2 Black Labs and we have been color-coordinating all of their equipment from Day One.
Destin’s collar, leash, and car harness are all red.
Tenor’s doggie gear is all blue.
Likewise, when it came time to order their dog tags, we wanted a red one for Destin, and a blue one for Tenor.
TagsForPets.com had the most colors, shapes, reasonable prices, and fastest turnaround time.
They have plastic tags available in these colors: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, White or Gray.
We chose the bone-shaped dog tag… one in red and one in blue.
We are 100% satisfied with the dog tags we have received, pictured here:
UPDATE: Even though I have been happy with the dog tags I’ve purchased through Tags For Pets, after hearing mixed reviews from others about the company, I have switched to buying my dog tags locally. I found the do-it-yourself TagWorks Dog Tag Machine at PetSmart (also available online) to be a cinch! I’ve made a couple of my dog tags there. And I also found some fun (high quality) dog tags on Amazon:
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
