Remember when you first met your dog?
He was fresh and new, and you were just getting to know each other. You went through training together, perhaps even ate together.
With time, you and your dog became very close even closer than you are to a lot of people you know. Your dog is special to you. He might be your best friend, a rascally mischief-maker, or just an accessory to your lifestyle.
He depends on you for feeding, play, and discipline. You depend on him for companionship, a connection with the animal world, or household security and protection. For these reasons and more, you should protect your dog from harm, and yourself from loss, by getting him a dog tag.
Dog tags hang on your dogs collar and provide all the necessary information for calling your dog, contacting you as the owner, and alerting people to your dogs dietary restrictions.
Some dog tags also include vaccination information, such as when your dog last received shots, and some municipalities even require this.
Once youve settled on what information to put on your dogs tag, its time to pick out a tag that suits your style and needs. If youre just looking to tag your dog with basic information, a plain plastic tag will do.
But if you want to add a personal touch, consider getting your dog a silver, jewel, gold, or diamond dog tag. Yes, they do exist. You can even have your dog tag customized and shaped exactly the way you want.
Some dog tag manufacturers can even laser-etch a photograph onto the tag perhaps a picture of you and your beloved pet.
Dog tags can range in price from free or just a few dollars, to diamond dog tags in excess of $7,500. Whatever your taste, there is a dog tag for your furry friend.
