General Information on Pet Tags
In the world of dog tags, we differentiate between dog ID tags and dog tag charms.
Dog ID tags will have your personal details engraved, so that your dog can be easily identified if they wander off. Whoever finds your dog can give you a call straight away, which can save your pup from a pick-up by the ranger or a trip to the vet to read their microchip information.
The engraving was (and still is) often done with number and letter stamps, but these days you’ll also find tags for pets being engraved with laser marking a lot.
Then there are dog tag charms, which don’t necessarily have any personal details engraved. Their purpose is to just add some personality and sassiness to your dog’s collar – it’s best to think of them as accessories 🤩
The standard dog tags aren’t particularly hard to find. You’ll often find them by the checkout counter in pet shops, or you can easily order them online from websites such as eBay.
In this article however, we focussed on beautifully unique dog tags that stand out from all the regular ones 🙂
