Four Types to Choose From - Which Type of Dog Tag is Best?
The style of identification tag really depends on the lifestyle of your pet. There are a number of benefits to each type, which we’ve highlighted below.
Hanging Dog ID Tags
These are your classic ID tags, available in a number of shapes including the classic disc, dog bone, star, heart, and more. We offer a variety of hanging tags with unique features, holiday style, or artisan designs. Personalize your hanging ID tag with your pet’s name and any other information you like. Some of our tags may be engraved on both sides. Want to protect your hanging tag and keep it from jingling? Get a glow in the dark tag silencer to go along with it!
Slide-On Dog Collar Tags
If you have an open-ended collar for your dog, the slide-on ID tag could be a great option. These tags provide more space per side for personalization than traditional hanging tags, and minimize noise. They won’t jingle with every move your dog makes. Our slide-on tags have ⅛-Inch wide openings that can easily slide onto open-ended leather, nylon, or waterproof collar straps. However, they cannot be used on collars with breakaway or quick release buckles.
Rivet-On Dog Collar Nameplates
The explanation is in the name! Our Rivet-On nameplates are installed onto your dog’s collar using either silver or brass rivets (they’ll match the color nameplate you choose). Like the slide-on tags, the rivet-on nameplate is quiet. You can buy a collar from us with a built-in nameplate, OR you can buy one to install yourself. We’ll send installation instructions along with it. Don’t worry, it’s a snap!
Personalized Plastic & Metal Hybrid Buckles
Our plastic and metal hybrid buckles can be laser engraved, too! Customers love this option because it is a great use of space. Our buckles are available in three sizes and can hold a maximum of two lines of text (15 characters each), which is plenty of room for the necessary identification information. We offer a variety of personalized buckle collars in fun designs and styles, but you may purchase the buckle alone if you prefer to place it on your dog’s existing collar.
What Should I Put on My Custom Pet ID Tag?
It’s tough to decide how to personalize your dog’s tag, but your contact information can be a good place to start. Providing your pet’s name, your phone number, and your address can help a stranger return your pet to the safety of your home in the event they ever become lost.
If you can type it, we can engrave it! Take the traditional highway, or get creative and clever with your message. We love seeing the neat personalization ideas our customers come up with! The amount of information displayed on the tag depends on its size. Each product page will tell you exactly how many lines and characters of personalization are available for the tag you’re interested in.
Guaranteed for Life
We’re so confident in our manufacturing process that we offer a guarantee on dogIDs tags for the life of your pet. Why? Because of our commitment to quality custom pet products! Many of our tags come with custom laser engraved personalization. Our engraving is durable enough to withstand abrasion from other tags as well as any sort of rough-housing your pup might put it through. So if your dog is what we like to call a “destroyer,” don’t worry! We promise our tags can handle it.
Quality Laser Engraving & Materials
We use high-power fiber lasers to engrave dog ID tags with customized information. This technology vaporizes and removes the metal from the tag, creating a clean, personalized message on your pet's tag that's guaranteed to never fade or rub off.
Our selection & supply of quality materials also plays a big part in the life and durability of these tags. We only use stainless steel, solid brass, gold-plated brass and nickel-plated brass in our pet tags. We never use plated low-quality metals to ensure that our dog tags hold up for years without discoloring, fading or peeling.
