Hey Mighty Paw fam, Barbara here to talk to you about our Mighty Paw Dog Tag Clips and how they can make your life easier!
You may already be familiar with the concept of dog tag clips, but if you're not, here's the rundown.
A dog tag clip is a metal clip that holds one or multiple dog tags. You can then easily attach that clip to any collar or harness.
How the Mighty Paw Dog Tag Clips Can Make Your Life Easier
It's kind of interesting how such a small item can make a difference in your day to day life! However, it really DOES add a level of convenience when you have more than just one collar for your pup that you're switching your dog tags between.
Without a dog tag clip, you're going to have some frustrated moments while you arduously take one dog tag after the other off one collar and then put them back onto a different collar or harness. Hellooo broken nails - been there, done that!
Of course that implies the use of dog tags in the first place, which you should have at least one of - your pup's rabies tag.
The different type of dog tags and why they're important
Here in the US, it's the law for every dog to be current on their rabies vaccination. Many counties even require that dogs visibly wear their rabies vaccination tag when they're out in public.
Besides the rabies tag, there are also name tags, microchip tags and dog license tags, all of which help identify a dog and reunite them quickly with their owner in case the pup gets lost.
The name tags feature a dog's name and their owner's contact information. For example, their phone number and/or address.
Microchip tags let people know that the dog is microchipped and which company stores the information that's linked to the microchip. That's usually the owner's information along with details about the pup's physical appearance and/or any medical conditions and needs.
Not all counties require dog owners to purchase a dog license for their pups, but those that do issue a dog license tag as proof that you've paid the (yearly) fee. Not paying it is typically considered a Class IV misdemeanor that's attached to a hefty fine. Speaking of attaching, those dog licenses also need to be securely attached to the dog's collar as soon as they're off their owner's property and out in public.
That said, dog parks within those counties require a dog license for entrance into the park as well, so that's something to be aware of!
I used to live in Loudoun County in D.C. suburbia where it was the law to license your dog once they're older than 4 months. Sure enough, most dog parks posted a sign with their rules at their entrance, and being licensed in the county was one of them!
As a consequence, my then Boxer mix pups Missy & Buzz each wore 4 tags on their respective collars: their name tag, rabies tag, microchip tag, and their county license tag. You bet that I quickly found out about dog tag clips! After all, the pups had a bunch of different collars that I regularly switched their tags between.
OK, now that you know what a dog tag clip does, the type of different tags there are and why they're important in the first place, let's take a closer look at our Mighty Paw Dog Tag Clips!
