Pet Tags - Brass or Plastic

ID Tags for Dogs and Cats

Technology is wonderful but...

Recently my granddaughter purchased a new cell phone.  She was unable to transfer her stored numbers from the old phone as it was non-functional (lost or dropped or something).  A situation developed where she needed to contact a family friend whose number she had stored in the old phone.  She attempted to contact people who might know the phone number she needed to no avail.  She asked me if I could think of someone else she could call to get the needed number.  Fortunately,  the friend whose number she needed is also a senior citizen (like me) who had an old fashion phone – the ones with a chord attached.  You guessed it.  There was also a listing in that book we use to boost up little kids who have graduated from hi-chairs and I had not yet recycled my copy.  I instructed her in the use of the PHONE BOOK and she was able to make the call!

A New Era

The shows at Harrisburg were my last appearance “on the road”. I'm now concentrating my efforts on the web site. I’m pleased that many customers I’ve dealt with at dog shows the past 32 years have followed me to the site. I’m also excited that many new customers have found me via the internet.  So I’m not retiring just beginning a NEW ERA. I’m looking forward to the challenge of supplying engraved signs and tags to past customers and finding new ones.

 

I must say, however, I won’t miss some things that came with doing 80+ shows a year. Like the mud and being towed out of a show site, high winds causing tents to go down and shows to be canceled, having the LED screen on the computer run slow because it didn’t like 30 degree temperature, changing a tire on my cube van on the Capitol Beltway during rush hour, listening to the PA announcer call (for the 4th time) for a vehicle to be moved “immediately or it will be towed – the tow truck is on the way”, watching flood waters rising in the parking lot and seeing the wheel chocks float away as I pull my trailer to higher ground.

I will miss the comradery of my fellow dog show vendors.  I expect to continue to share in the excitement of achieving a new title when I get the order for a crate sign and a new puppy with the order for a pet tag.

Pet Tags

I've been answering the question "what information should I have on my dog's ID" for 30 years. My thought is if I encounter a dog that appears lost, I need a phone number to contact its owner. If I want to keep the dog, knowing its name is helpful. More recently the idea of two phone numbers - home and cell - seems to make sense. Ring or "S" hook for attachment? If the "S" hook is closed well with pliers, it is the strongest. The ring can be separated with a small screwdriver or metal nail file for attaching and being continuous it is very secure. One caution: when attaching a lead to a collar be sure to connect to the heavy ring and not the ID tag ring.

What information should go on a Pet ID?


My view is that if my dog gets lost and is found by a stranger, I want to be notified immediately.  Therefore, I want my phone number on the tag and if I'm away from home, possibly my cell phone number.  For the stranger to know generally where I'm from, I'll include my city and state, and my last name so I can be addressed on the phone.  I won't put my dog's name on the tag as I don't want it to be easier to control him.

Use SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS to indicate changes to the lines.  For example: "Line 1 use italics", "Leave space on Line 2 for titles (3 spaces)"

Pet ID Brass Collar Tags (Collar Plates)

Pet ID Brass Collar Tags: All 3 Sizes for Comparison

This shows the 3 different sizes of the Pet ID Brass Collar Tags - Top: Large, Middle: Small, Bottom: Medium

I choose to call the flat rivet-on style IDs "collar tags" or "collar plates" to differentiate them from the hanging type. They come with rivets for mounting. A hammer is needed to set the rivet. For do-it-your-selfers, the toughest part usually is putting a hole in the leather or nylon. Some customers send me the collar so I can mount the tag. Others have me send the tag to the leather maker for them to mount the tag. Once mounted there is nothing to jingle or catch on something.

Here's some photos of our Small lPet ID Brass Collar Tags mounted on a leather collar.
