New Collars. Same Quality. Added Safety!

The Benefits of a Safety Collar

Believe it or not, dogIDs now offers collars that keep your dog even safer than our current lines of custom engraved collars. These collars are still personalized and just as industrial as ever, but we’ve added a center ring for additional safety! High-five to technology!

Benefits of a Safety Ring

If your dog spends time in the woods, in the field, or really anywhere with things that can get caught on collars, there is a concern for safety. But fear not– you don’t have to keep your pup in a padded room. Thanks to the new center ring, if your dog gets hung up on a branch or object he has more room to swivel his head and keep his airway clear. [Read more...]

Orthopedic Dog Beds: Not Just for Seniors!

Reasons for getting an orthopedic dog bedHow many beds have you gone through for your dog? Personally, I’ve bought Brick about five beds in the five years I’ve had him.

I often went for the lowest-priced options thinking I’d save money, but they’d never last. Either they’d get lumpy or too flat, or simple wear and tear got the best of them too quickly. If only I had gotten a high-quality, durable bed off the bat, because that would have saved the most in the long run.

Durability aside, you may wonder if you really need an orthopedic bed for your pup. I mean, orthopedics are for senior citizens, right? Not necessarily! Doggies of all ages and sizes can benefit from a great bed. [Read more...]

Buckle Up for Safety: The Dangers of Loose Dogs in the Car

Dog travelling safe in carWe’ve all seen it, and maybe are even guilty of it ourselves: Driving down the road with a dog loose in the car, windows down, head out the window … or worse yet, sitting in the back cab of a pickup truck. It may seem harmless, especially when your dog loves to feel the breeze on his face, but the cost could be more than you’re willing to risk.

There are many dangers to this activity. Debris can strike a pup’s face outside, which can cause serious injury and costly medical bills. Ever been driving down the highway when a truck kicks up a rock on your windshield? Imagine that same rock hitting your dog. Not pretty.

What’s even scarier to me is that when a dog’s head is out the window, his front legs are often propped up on the armrest on that door. Some cars have those automatic window buttons right by his foot, and if he takes the wrong step, he may actually close the window on his neck.

Even worse still, if he tries jump out of the window, he could get stuck, or his leash or collar could get caught on something inside, leaving his body hanging or dragging outside, and at risk of chocking himself and great bodily injury if not death. Or if he makes it out, he is at great risk of getting struck by another car. [Read more...]
