Bring Lost Dogs Home with Customized Collars

Do you worry what will happen if your dog gets lost? Will any kind soul squint at his faded ID tag, or take him to a vet to be scanned for a microchip?

I worry about that, too. But one day I saw a dog with a striking collar embroidered with his name--Frank-- and his owner's phone number. The letters were large enough to be read without fumbling under his chin for a tag.

So I couldn't rest until I had one for my own Badger. The collars I found are embroidered by a lady in Florida, for a remarkably low price. It was cheap enough that when I changed phone numbers a couple of months later, it was no sacrifice to immediately order a new collar.

Stylish ID tag has an an enamel paw print on one side. Choose from two sizes and a dozen colors!


Now, this isn't the only identification Badger has. He's also microchipped, which will be invaluable if he gets lost and also loses the collar. But having his name and phone number in large, easy-to-read print is my first ID attempt. I point it out to people who stop to pet him as we walk, in hopes that they will remember it if he ever escapes.

The collar feels light, but has held up very well to my heavy boy. It has a heavy D-ring that attaches both tags and a leash. I chose a red background with white thread for the name and numbers; it looks quite dramatic against Badger's glossy black fur.

Both collars that I ordered arrived within three days. You do need to contact the seller through Amazon, after you order, to give her the customization info.

      @Susan, can you see the Amazon link under the top picture with the Buy Now button? If not, try turning your ad block off.

      I just added a text link in the first paragraph, so you can click on that even if the ad isn't visible. :)

      These customized collars with the dogs pet name and number embroidered onto them are really a great idea! My Tidbit would need one just like yours for Badger, as she is all black too.
