In our BlogPaws swag bag, Sinead and I got a coupon for a pet identification tag from DogTagArt. I was pretty intrigued.
As long-time readers of the blog know, I'm passionate about pet identification. Far too many dogs get out of their yards and away from their owners every single year, and when they do, many of these dogs just don't come back home again.
Microchips can help, but many people don't keep their data up-to-date with the chip company (more on that here). And, as well all know, chips just aren't visible to the naked eye. That means a chip can't provide 100% protection, as it may not be linked to current data and/or rescuers might not know that the chip is there.
Tags like those from DogTagArt are different, because they're visible. Anyone who finds Sinead wearing this tag will know she belongs to someone. And I have a visual reminder that her information is up-to-date, with no computer login or call required.
The tags are also just really neat looking. I ordered a tag that matches Sinead's favorite Lupine collar. Now, she has peacocks on both her collar and her tag. Pretty swift, right?
And while I can't show you the engraving on the tag (social media safety, you know), I can tell you that the typing is crisp, clean and easy to read. Even though the tag is small, I can see everything really clearly.
The tag also came with a little ring I can use for noise reduction. Now, instead of hearing her identification tag banging against her county tag, I hear nothing when she's running. That's a nice little bonus.

Disclosure: I was not paid for this review. I just got a free tag in my swag bag!
