Updated on December 8, 2009

Pet ID Tags

Pet identification tags are important when you have a pet dog or cat. There are other animals that you may want to have identification tags for, but you'll find that the most common tags are purchased for dogs and cats.

You'll find that it can be quite important to spend $10 for a personalized pet tag so that your pet will always know his name, phone number, and address if he ever gets lost.

Pet tags can be very unique or they can be quite simple. The most popular pet tags include a dog bone, circle, start, or heart. They can come in a variety of colors and sizes to fit your smallest cat to largest dog.

Below you'll see many options that you can choose from when shopping for a personalized dog or cat ID tag

Importance of Pet ID Tags

It is very important to purchase a pet tag for your dog or cat. You want to always have one on his/her collar in case he gets out of the yard or house. If someone picks him up, you want to make sure that your pet is returned back to you.

There are many types of tags that you can choose from, whether it be a simple dog shaped tag or a more elaborate pet tag with a picture on one side and the information on the other.

You will want to include the following information on your pet's ID tag:

  • Pet name
  • Your name
  • Phone number
  • Address

You may even want to include an alternate phone number. Some pet parents will put a home number and a cell phone number but will not include the home address. Depending on what information you want to provide, you'll find that what is personalized on your pet's tag may vary from someone else.

Generally you'll be provided up to five lines of personalization. Make the best of those lines to ensure that you get your beloved pet back.

In many cases, stray animals may have a collar, but not tag or microchip. In order to get your pet home safely, that ID tag is necessary. Even if your pet has a microchip, you want to make sure that the ID tag is on the collar. You will get your pet back quicker and safer.

Personalized Pet Tag

You can purchase a personalized dog tags in most pet stores that have an engraving machine, but you'll find that the options aren't usually very varied. Typically, your options will include a basic bone tag, circle, and heart. You'll find that you just won't have very many options when it comes to the size of the tag or the color.

The internet offers a much wider variety of pet tags that generally include basic personalized tags, designer pet tags, and fashion pet tags.

The basic tags will be a one color tag, but the good thing is that online you'll find many shapes and sizes. Designer pet tags are basically those by designers, but they're generally still pretty simple and basic. Fancy pet tags are those that have jewels and gems decorating them on one side, if not both sides.

There are many ways that you can personalize your own pet tag. It will show off your own personality. You'll have something different. You can purchase a simple brass, silver, or gold. If you can't find the tag that you want for your pet, you can buy a basic one, have it engraved with your information, and then decorate it yourself. Just make sure that you use safe and non-toxic materials that won't hurt your pet, especially if accidentally ingested.
