Q: What are some of your experiences with dog collars and i.d. tags?

What are some of your experiences with dog collars and i.d. tags?

Barron needs a new collar with identification on it and I had been considering the little metal tag with name and phone number on it, like Mishu wears. Someone else told me that a collor with an identification label permanently attached is more satisfactory. What do you think?

We have great small tags, that even active dogs love.
We found this cool blog from one of our customers:
"My dogs have not worn ID tags for years. We would move and need new ones, or I'd get tired of taking them off for agility or we would get tired of the jingling or I couldn't really find ones I liked. Then I saw these on the Pampered Paw website...

Naturally, they all had to have one and they arrived yesterday. They have names and phone numbers engraved on the back. The black/white one is Zodiac's, purple is Legend, and green is Oreo. I would have posted pictures of them wearing them but then they are harder to see up close, especially with long haired dogs. They also come in a few more colors if anyone wants one for their own dog. "

I love these tags they are so beautiful!

i've never had any trouble with metal hanging tags on my dog, but if you don't care of hanging tags and you're not crazy about the kind of collars with the metal plate, a couple of good, similar alternatives are nylon collars with info embroidered on or a leather collar with info embossed into the leather.

I get the metel dog ID tags there a lot cheaper but if you don't like the jingling tags i would just super glue it to the coller but then it's hard to take it off again but i like the jingling because it tells you were the dog is!!!

Well the collar with the name plate is fine but if you move or something then you have to get a whole new collar. Also with the jingling it is good so then you always know where they are.

I like attaching the nameplate to my dogs' collars. I hate the sound of jingling dog tags. They will tell you that the nameplates can't be used on the adjustable collars, but they can as long as your dog has quit growing. I used to use the brass nameplates, but now I like the stainless steel ones. I order from DogIDs.com.

We've always had the metal dog tags that you can engrave yourself @ Petco or Wal-Mart from the vending like machine. One of our Rotties tags did come off in the backyard but we did find it. The other 2 dogs have never lost theirs. Our dogs have never got caught on anything either. I do know they jingle and make noise but your going to have that anyway because of the rabies and liscence tags. You'll still have hanging tags because of that. I wouldn't recommend taking those tags off either. Even if you carry them in your purse, your husband or kids may walk the dog and not have that important information when needed. If anything have your dog microchipped. That would be the best suggestion for your money.

I think the collar with the attached metal ID is better for dogs that run through the woods and are outdoors a lot. The hanging tags can come off and get lost or get caught on brush. If you opt for the collar with the attached metal ID, you will probably need to keep your city license and Rabies tags with you, like in your purse, in case anyone in authority asks to see them.

The hanging tags on our dogs collars got caught in things - like the carpet - and trapped them. They would wrestle and get their teeth caught in each other's collars. So I hooked the collar to the leash and hung the whole thing at the front door for when we go out. Both dogs are chipped. If I had to choose, though, I'd go for the tag that attaches right to the collar and not one that hangs down.
