Identification Tags for Dogs

You love your dog, and you would hate for it to get lost, but it’s important that you are prepared for this possibility. The best way to ensure that someone will return your dog is by making it wear dog tags.

Dog Tag Options

There are a multitude of dog tags available for your pet. You can get engraved dog tags from a kiosk available at many stores, such as a Wal-Mart or a grocery store. Your veterinarian will also provide helpful information when it comes to ID dog tags for your pets; ask for a brochure. Is your dog a large breed, such as an Irish wolfhound or a Great Dane? If so, you can get super dog tags, which are larger-than-normal sized dog tags, and are well suited for larger breeds because of their greater visibility.

If you are looking for something with a little more personality than the standard tag, you have the option of getting custom dog tags. You can get personalized dog tags in many shapes, colors and sizes. Other dog tag styles and materials include Looney Tunes tags, psychedelic tags and gold dog tags.

These chips are completely safe for your pet, and this is one ID tag that can never be lost!
