Your dog wears the same fur coat day in and day out. So what better way to accessorize it and highlight your pup’s sparkling personality than with a unique collar ID tag. And they’re not just for looks. According to Home Again microchip service, 1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime, and without proper ID, 90% never return home. You already know it:  both an ID tag and a microchip are must-have items to help your dog get returned safely to you if he or she gets lost.


There are so many options for custom ID tags – below is just a sampling, and a simple plastic or stainless steel tag will certainly get the job done too. Just look for a durable tag that clearly displays your contact information. You’ll want to avoid tags made from soft metals like brass and aluminum since they’ll wear out more quickly than others.
