    I'm looking for some new ID tags for my dogs. They don't have to be all that fancy, but I want them to last. Any recommendations?

    I got mine on ebay. They're probably not the greatest quality out there but they've held up pretty well. I've had Thunder's the longest... 3 years... and it's still in good shape.

    Not bad, I like the replacement guarantee if the writing rubs off. I think I'll order from them, thanks!

    Now I just need to figure out what I want to put on them :p

    Thanks !!!
     
  8. I just get mine done at the local pet store... I think Petsmart and Petco do them too. They're aluminum, so they're lightweight, and are engraved. Some of mine have lasted for years and years. My mom's boster terrier has had his for around 5 years, and it still looks fine.

    As far as what to put, mine can be engraved on the front and back. On the front, I put their name, and 2 phone numbers. On the back, I put my address and the word reward. So my guys' tags look like this:

    (front)

    Jake
    000-000-0000
    000-000-0000

    (back)

    0000 Road Name Ave.
    City Name, LA
    REWARD

    I also have a tag engraved with their microchip information, as their plastic original microchip tags are attached to their harness.

    The microchip tags I engrave look like this:

    (front)

    MICROCHIPPED
    0000-0000-0000

    (back)

    REWARD

    And on top of that (LOL), my guys who have health issues have medical alert tags engraved. The front has the medical alert symbol, and the words medical alert. The back has their conditon.

    For example, the back of Jake's tag reads:
    HEART PROBS
    ON MEDS
    REWARD

    Sam's reads:
    DEATHLY
    ALLERGIC
    ON MEDS
    REWARD

    And Emmy's reads:
    EPILEPTIC
    ON MEDS
    REWARD

    Yeah I rambled, sorry, LOL. Anyways, you can put whatever you feel necessary on the ID tag. It can just be a phone number, or a name, phone number and address. Up to you on how much info you want. I put all my info, because I live in a very small town, so if my dogs ever got out or loose, I want them to know that the dog lives in this town and on exactly what street. All my tags are in addition to their rabies tags. Yeah, my guys are well ID'ed. :rolleyes:

    I was thinking of putting Misty's chip info on her tag, but if she's still got the tag they'll have our numbers anyways. I think I may just go simple with the dogs name on front and our cell numbers on the back.

    Just make sure you put a number of the phone you have with you the most.

    We both always have our cell phones on us, so I put both our numbers. I also put our vet's number on there too for good measure!

    I just bought these tags and I really like them. :) I ordered them from Woof & Meow Shoppe... however, I tried to order another from them 2 weeks ago for my friend's dog, and I have yet to even receive a reply so they might be out of business for a while. I don't know?

    They have held up very well and don't get dirty. However, Gonzo got sprayed by a skunk the night before last (yes... the second time THIS YEAR!) and I accidentally got de-skunking stuff on the tag. They're still legible, but a few of the numbers are a bit corroded. Not too bad considering it was soaked in peroxide/baking soda! Ughh.

    I get my tags from the vet. They have their own machine and high quality black tags. They write on both sides of the tag (writing is silver)
