About

Style and Function for The Dog.

I love that I can craft beautiful items for my customers, but it means even more to me to know that I can make something that can give people a little extra reassurance to really enjoy life with their dogs - whether that's summiting a mountain, splashing around at a dog beach, or going for a daily stroll around the neighborhood.

I was once told a story about a friend's dog who decided to tour the neighborhood on his own one day. A nice family found him wandering, and based on his shaggy look and lack of collar the kids immediately decided he was a stray and fell in love with him. Luckily my friend was already on the search for him, and although the family was sorry to see him go, his adventure ended with him safely back at home.

Sadly, this isn't always the case, which is why I always remind people to keep some sort of collar on at all times. Just because a dog is chipped, doesn't mean that the person that finds them wont convince themselves that they're rescuing a stray without ever trying to find the owners.

I make my products with both dogs and their owners in mind, and I'm always looking for ways to improve my techniques to make sure my tags can hold up to everything your dogs can throw at them! Plus, many of the materials I use are purchased from other shops right here on Etsy!

    Owner, Designer

    My lifelong passion is making life better for pets in any way I can. In addition to making custom pet products, I have worked with dogs for most of my life and I am currently working towards an education in pet nutrition. When I'm not working, I love to hike, camp, and climb with my two amazing dogs.

    Rumo is a one and a half year old Shikoku Ken. He often tests out my large dog tags. If they can stand up to him, they can stand up to anyone!

Frequently asked questions

Will my phone number be stamped on the front or back of the tag?

Unless pictured otherwise, your phone number - as well as any additional information that you have purchased - will be stamped on the back of the tag.

What size are these tags? Can I see a size reference?

Disc shaped tags are available in 7/8 inch, 1 inch, and 1 1/4 inch sizes. Some designs may exclude some sizes.

7/8 is approximately the size of a nickel, and 1 inch is about the size of a quarter, while 1 1/4" would be closest to the size of a silver dollar.

For my metric users:
7/8 inch = 22.225mm
1 inch = 25.4mm
1 1/4 inch = 31.75mm

What metal option is best?

Brass is strongest and holds up to wear and tear the best. Nickel silver is just as strong, and will generally hold up as long as brass in most cases.

Bronze is slightly softer than brass, but many people love the rustic color.

Aluminum is light and soft. Excellent for small or laid back pets. Some people do not like the way aluminum feels because it is so lightweight.

Pewter is similar to sterling silver in color. It's heavier than aluminum, but it's also a soft metal and is not recommended for very active pets.

I offer a few special shapes in a thick stainless steel. These hold up very well to wear and tear, and they are heavy and sturdy.

Can I see a mock up of my tag?

None of my tags are designed digitally - everything is stamped out, letter by letter, entirely by hand. Because of this I can't send a digital mock up. I am happy to send a proof once your tag is done, and I will generally re-stamp your tag once if you want to change something.

If you want to create a digital mock up yourself, please feel free to do so! It makes my life easier if I can see exactly what you have in mind.

How do I attach my tag to my pet's collar?

All tags will come with either a silver colored or brass colored split ring. I may have S-hooks available upon request.

Care instructions

Always make sure to check your tag's split ring for wear and tear. If there is a gap in the ring, replace it immediately. Never hook your dog's collar to the split ring - always hook it to the D-ring on the collar.
