I need to get a new tag for Shadow. the one i got from the store is all beat up already (less than a couple months old!). I need a good durable tag that will last a long time. Anyone have any suggestions?

The Boomerang tags are excellent and not terribly expensive - even with the shipping.



I've only had to replace mine because our phone number has changed.

Ooh love this thread! I was just thinking yesterday of how I should get some better tags for Zoey's collar.. she's just got the ugly yellow one from the microchip company that doesn't say anything but her chip number and their phone number... It would work.. yes... but I want my name on there too :-D

Thanks for the link to Boomerang tags! I got like the one RonE posted for Zoey. I'll have to get one for Maggie too when we get her in two and a half weeks, but we're not 100% sure that we're naming her Maggie sooo... could be a waste to do it so soon..

Unless they lose them while out running loose.
Yeah, but that's true of all tags. Which is why people should get microchips, too. My point was that you can get a bunch and just put a new one on if it gets lost without having to spend another $5-10 on an engraved tag. Or you can just change the info in it every time you move or change phone numbers (good for me because I move about once a year).

I just got a bunch of these things:
http://shop.robbinspetcare.com/id-capsule-nickel-plated.html

They are little capsules that you can put the info into, and they screw shut. They are only a $1 for the smaller brass ones, and $1.10 for the slightly larger nickel ones. So if they lose them or they break, it's no big thing.
What if people don't know what it is or that you have to open it?:p

Ok, don't laugh, but I aw in my mom's magazine that on marthastewart.com she has templates so you can make your own tags using shrinky dinks...

I can't believe I never thought of that! When I was younger I used to make weird jewelry with those things. I think I still have some sheets lying around somewhere.

Pickle's tag is from Pet-co. There's a thing where you pay the clerk money and he or she gives you a token and near the entrence (at least by me) there is a computer thing and you type in the number of lines you want and what you want it to say.
http://www.petidtags.org/ This is an online one, the one I got Frodo's from.
http://www.tagxpress.com/ - This is where Berney got his.
http://www.thepamperedpetmart.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MetalTags&qts=Affiliate&qtk=6W6wrj6g This is where they ALL got their firsts, but I didn't like them because instead of carving they just printed. But it is free shipping.
http://www.finepetidtags.com/ - This is one I highly suggest. But my best results where out of Pickle's, I plan to eventually get them all one of the ones Pickle has. :)
