What Info Should My Dog Have On Its ID Tag?

February 28, 2022

Tags are a legal requirement on dogs when they are in public places. Dog tags typically feature the following basic information: 

  • The name of the owner
  • Owner’s complete home address 
  • Home phone number and alternative phone number(s)
  • Email address 
  • Medical needs such as deafness, blindness, or any such disability 
  • Other information that you consider relevant such as allergies or extra information to find you 

Ideally, you should get a dog tag as soon as your dog gets comfortable wearing a leash.  

Types of Dog Tags

There are various types of dog tags, but these are the major ones mostly used by dog owners:

Slide-On Dog Tag

The main perk of this collar is the fact that they don’t hang or jangle and therefore don’t get caught in anything. Esther, these tags come with slits along which the collar slides, keeping the tags flat against the collar. They only work for certain collars and information can only be written on one side. 

Rivet-On Dog Tag

These tags are riveted to the collar and are more sturdy. Like slide-on tags, only the front can be engraved. 

Hanging ID Tag 

This is the most common choice for an ID tag mainly because it allows for inscription on both sides. They also work for any collar type. They may however be quite noisy or get caught in branches. 

Benefits of Having an ID Tag

Here are some of the benefits of having an ID tag:


ID tags are relatively cheap to procure compared to other forms of identification. 

Easy to Customize 

Customizing an ID tag is a lot easier especially since it comes in various shapes, forms, sizes, and is made out of various materials. 

Easy to Read

ID tags can be easily read if your dog goes missing. Since they allow for sufficient space to fill in the necessary information, you can be certain that your pet would be safely returned once they have been found.


Unlike microchips and trackers, this hangs outside the body making it a non-invasive way of keeping your pet tracked. 


Having a dog tag is a great way to keep your dog safe and ensure that if they wander off, they can safely return home.
