How to Install a Rivet On Dog Collar Nameplate

If you buy a personalized dog collar from dogIDs with a built in nameplate, we will rivet the nameplate onto the collar for you before we ship your order.

However, if you already have a collar and you want to personalize it with a rivet on nameplate, we've created a video that will show you how.

How to Install a Slide On Collar Nameplate

If you already have an open-ended collar (like a human belt), you can use a slide-on nameplate to personalize it. The opening on this collar nameplate is approximately 1/8" wide, so it won't fit over a collar with a large snap buckle.

These nameplates are incredibly easy to install! Just slide the nameplate onto the open end of the collar and adjust to the spot where you’d like it to sit.

Watch our How-To video to see how easy installation can be!
