How many tags do you guys have on your dogs???

Bellini has 4! ID, Rabies, License, and her Micro chip tag!!

Eventually she won't be able to walk, too many tags to carry!!

Tags on harness only

I found that the collar with tags was always snagging the coat. My dogs don't wear any kind of collar at home. On their harness when we go out for long walks or out of our neighborhood, they have their id chip tag and their license. When I take them for walks just down the street and back to potty, they have martingales that go on and off easily with a slip into a clasp.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Checkout Boomerang tags online. The tag goes on the collar not hanging from the collar. Cooper HATED hanging tags and now he doesn't notice it at all.

I don't put tags on my Hav's, though they are both Microchipped.

Here are a few ideas though:

Also, my friend has a small little pouch that attaches to her Hav's collar. All of the tags fit snuggly inside. I need to contact her to see where she bought it..

Even if you keep the others on your dog, you might want to consider taking off the microchip tag if it lists the microchip number on it. I don't want one of my dogs getting lost and then someone can tell their vet that they had the dog microchipped and tell them what the number is, which would probably prevent a vet from reporting the dog's number if they suspected anything. Does that make sense?

I don't think a lot of vets scan new dogs for microchips anyway, but if they found one and the new owner wasn't aware of it, they may call it in just to be safe. Besides, if you post lost dog posters with photos/description and say the dog is microchipped and take the flyer to local vets & shelters, you will be the only one who can verify the number for them. That alone will prove the identity & ownership.

If you check the tread "Dog Tags" I posted a picture of the boomerangtags.com collar slide tags. I really like it. I don't leave Tucker's collar on, though. Just put it on if we go out the front door.

No tags, no collars. When we take the dogs out, we use show leads, even on the standard poodle.
When we go out alone the dogs are kenneled and it's too much of a pain to remove collars all the time.

I'm a ditz at finding threads but a hanging tag on a collar can injure a dog. If the jump ring on the tag isn't tiny a tooth can get caught or your dog can cut their mouth on the tag
When I used to use tags, I never put the name of the dog on the tag, but instead put NEEDS MEDS and my phone number. I figured not many people would want to keep what they thought was an ill dog and I didn't want them getting comfortable with my dog and knowing their name.

luckily, Bellini wears her tags on her harness on her back by her lead, and she has a fenced yard to run in so she doesn't have to wear them a lot.
