    Exclamation Check your dog's i.d. Tag!!

    Yesterday I found a pug getting ready to wander into the desert & into the jaws of some hungry coyotes. I could not read his ID tags because they were worn & scratched. Luckily, a man came by who knew where he lived. We got him home & my husband re-secured the chicken wire (!) that the owners used to keep him in.

    I checked my dog's tags & they're almost illegible too! I put the info out on my dog forum & they said Boomerang Tags are the best. Lifetime guarantee on some of them. Not bad pricing, if you consider the number of times you replace tags.

    There's my Monday $.02.

    hey dogmama!

    couldn't agree more. check out my favorite tag place, Fetching Tags - they just don't wear out.

    I have found Red Dingo tags to be exceptionally good!

    Red Dingo tags are beautiful ... but ours wore out after about two years and were quite illegible. Thankfully, that coincided with a move so it was time for new tags anyway.

    Microchips are a great backup plan.

    Ice is chipped and wears a Fetching Tag. They are made of aerospace quality aluminum, lightweight but thick and almost indestructible. Ice's is a yr old and still looks new.

    Plus the company does a lot for rescue/animal welfare by donating portion of profits and/or making tags for rescue orgs... love the attitude

    I have Zack's chip number on his ID tag along with the phone number.
