The importance of having a personalized engraved dog collar

Today we are going to be covering why it is crucial to have a a personalized / custom engraved dog collar for your dog compared to having a traditional collar with a hanging ID tag.

An important and easily often overlooked aspect of being a dog parent is ensuring that your dog is easily identifiable and can be returned to you in case they ever become lost or separated from you (knock on wood this never happens).

One of the best and easiest ways to achieve this is by using a dog collar. However, just having a standard dog collar is not enough to ensure that they can be identified in the event they are ever separated from you.

Why hanging dog tags are not ideal for your dog's collar

Unfortunately dog collars with hanging tags can easily be ripped off or get stuck in things when your dog is out and about which is why it is important to have a dog collar with a personalized metal engraving directly on it. 

If your dog was ever to get lost, odds are they will be just as scared as you are, which means they might find themselves in places where they would be at greater risk of having their hang tag ripped or pulled off by objects such as trees or bushes. 

This is why it isn't ideal to rely on a hanging dog collar with your name and contact information in the event your dog does get lost.

We get it though, a customized collar can normally be quite expensive, so finding an affordable custom dog collar one can be just as important for people to ensure you stay within your budget, and properly ensure your dog remains safe and identifiable at all times.

You will need one that is made of premium materials, such as leather, vegan (read more about the best vegan collar options) or genuine are both great options, or a reinforced nylon to ensure that is holds up to all the fun dogs love to get into. These collars can be easily cleaned as well! 

** We also strongly recommend finding a personalized dog collar with full metal engravings and metal buckles to ensure that it can be pulled on without ever being at risk of breaking and will also last a lot longer too (We have been through our fair share!)

A custom dog collar also makes a tremendous gift for that person who is expecting (yes, expecting!) a new puppy in their life. 

So without further ado, let's start off by telling you a real story that happened to a friend that highlights the importance of using a customized engraved dog collar.

Why you really need a custom engraved dog collar!

Our friend experienced a heart-wrenching moment when their beloved dog went missing. Despite searching the neighborhood, putting up flyers, posting on various social media groups, and contacting local shelters, there was no sign of their best friend anywhere.

Unfortunately, the dog's identification tag had come off, and without it, they had no way of knowing who the dog belonged to. After almost two weeks, a stranger messaged them on Facebook after coming across their lost dog post and finding a dog fitting that description.

Customized Engraved Dog Collar for identification

This experience reminded us of the importance of properly identifying our pets, and a simple nameplate on their collar could have made all the difference.

However, most dog tags can come off quite easily, which is why finding an affordable personalized dog collar with their name and your number engraved onto a stainless steel nameplate directly on the collar is crucial.

By taking necessary precautions, such as using an affordable personalized dog collar, you can ensure the safety of your furry friend and prevent yourself from being in a similar situation. So, always be prepared and take the necessary steps to keep your dog safe and sound.
