Dog tags are essential if your furry friend goes missing. Even the best trained, most house loving dogs can be spooked or find chasing the neighbour's cat irresistible now and again. Exterior stimuli are outside your control so make sure your dog always has an identifying dog tag on them. As a minimum, the dog tag should have your up-to-date phone number and ideally the dog's name too. If your pet has any serious health issues or needs regular medication it is also a good idea to put this information on the tag. Dog tags are not just practical, they can also be beautiful so try some interesting textures, colours and add jewels to make your pooch look even more spectacular.
