My daughter doesn't put her tags on the minis - she can't stand the sound of them clinking together ha ha - she actually had my son tape Teddy and Gingers together so they wouldn't tinkle! lol She'll kill me if I get another!

All my dogs have an ID tag, my Pit Cici and my Cocker mix Clover have an ID plate. Only Tuesday my Standard has a mettle tag, its a gold bone with her name on it and my two numbers. The others have plastic colored ones. I would love to get all of them a mettle one but I can't afford to spend $42+ on tags o_O

I will always have tags on my dogs in addition to the chips. A few years ago my sister was visiting and her dog got out of the our fence while we were out for the day. The neighbors didn't recognize him. Since he had no tags they called animal control to come get him. This was on a weekend and so we had to wait until Monday to bail him out. It was so scary until we found that he was safe!

We ordered our tags online at http://terrificpets.com/pet_id_tags/ They do double sided tags, so we crammed all of Marley's info onto one tag. We didn't like the clinking either. Now he can sneak up on us. :)

They're inexpensive, too -- $5 + $1 for the double-sided engraving. I encourage everyone to get one... as CurlyDog says, dogs can get outside despite your best efforts. We've returned a number of dogs to their people that way.

Here in the UK you should not walk a dog on the roads without an ID tag. When Inca was in show coat this was quite inconvenient as obviously I didn't want to spoil her mane. I got round it by using round bridle leather collars and only had them on when we were walking. As soon as I cut her coat, we had fancy IDs and lots and lots of different collars, including BLING.

Sams tags fell through the deck boards on our deck when he was lying down one time, they turned underneath and trapped him so he couldn't get up. It was very hot out and I couldn't stop picturing what could have happened had we not noticed. He hasn't had tags on since. A long time ago I saw a pocket that attaches to the collar and I haven't been able to find it since, until just now. I'm going to order one so we can get Sam's tags back on him. http://www.amazon.com/REGULAR-SIZE-BLACK-Pocket-Secure/dp/B000MMYOM6

What kind of collar does he have? Ours is designed to detach if forced open. We were doubtful that it would actually do so, but it has detached twice: once when Marley was tied to my chair at a restaurant and a squirrel ran by, and the other time when he was running after a ball and tripped (we're not quite sure what happened there, but he flipped over and his collar came off -- it must have gotten caught on something).

Marley leads a pretty active life. :)
