Pet Tags

Choosing the right details for your dog's ID tag is essential and a legal requirement in the UK. Under the Control of Dogs Order 1992, all dogs in public must have an ID with the owner's name and address. This rule predates GPS technology but remains crucial for your pet’s safety.

Your dog's ID tag should have the following:

  • Your Name (e.g., "A Barker")
  • Your Address (e.g., "52 Woof Street, PAW 01S")
  • Optionally, your Phone Number (e.g., "07010 123456")

While including your phone number isn’t mandated by law, we strongly recommend it for quick contact, especially in the smartphone era. Here are two examples for clarity:

Example 1:
A Barker
52 / PAW 01S
07010 123456 (optional)

Example 2:
A Barker
52 Woof Street
07010 123456 (optional)

An up-to-date ID tag is a simple yet effective way to ensure your dog’s safety and compliance with UK laws.

Deciding to include your pet’s name on their ID tag is a matter of personal preference. Some pet owners find that having the pet's name on the tag can create a bond and aid in identification. However, others choose not to for security reasons, fearing that it might make their pet a target for theft.

Instead of the pet's name, you can use phrases or information that could help in case your pet gets lost. Here are some alternatives that many of our customers find effective:

  • "Beloved Companion"
  • "Call my Humans! I'm Chipped"
  • "I'm Deaf"
  • "Lost Dog"
  • "Microchipped"
  • "Needs Meds"

Additionally, including a phone number or your surname can be a safe and efficient way to ensure your pet is returned to you if they wander off. Remember, the key is to provide sufficient information for someone to contact you, while considering the safety and well-being of your furry friend.

Selecting the appropriate size for your dog's name tag depends on your dog's size, breed, and your preferences. Smaller tags around 20mm are generally suitable for cats, small dog breeds, or puppies.

For medium-sized dogs, a 25mm tag is often ideal. Larger breeds might need a 30mm tag to ensure the information is visible and legible.

It's important to consider the amount of space required for all the necessary details. The goal is to choose a tag size that ensures all identification information is clear and easily readable, providing peace of mind about your dog's safety.
