Announcement    Welcome to Doggone Tags... catering to cool pets and their people since 2010

At Doggone Tags, we strive to have the most unique designs in a variety of styles. Doggone Tags has been seen in Modern Dog Magazine, IVillage, City Dog, Nova Dog, and Bark. Our tags have gone into space and into the Space Station, and our Daisy tag was on the puppy in the movie John Wick ! We've also been featured in countless blogs and are so gratified that our customers (both human and non human) are so happy with their purchases !

It's also gratifying to be able to give back to the pet community and we work with a few different rescue groups each year. After all, without a certain rescue group here in the DC area, this jewelry designer would not have turned to tag making ! Thank you Lucky Dog, DC ! :)

Our tags are made in mixed metal and all are created in a small studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It's definitely NOT a critter free place by choice :)

Normal (non holiday/vacation) SCHEDULE: currently 2 weeks from time of payment. Special designs/ orders may take a few days longer. If you need something sooner, PLEASE contact us first and we'll accommodate you if we're able. We always try, but am not always able to do so !

******************* COVID & HOLIDAY SHIPPING UPDATE ************** Clearly COVID is still having an impact on us all and shipping companies/customs are not immune to this ! Please understand that we are getting the tags out on time, but can not guarantee the USPS shipping times. Patience is appreciated. Please take this into consideration when ordering.

About DoggoneTags

Sales 25,034
On Etsy since 2010

what you get when you combine one adopted dog and jewelry making supplies...

Doggone Tags is a marriage of my love for jewelry making and my love for my pets (one spoiled rotten cat and his equally spoiled canine sister) With the help of my furry muse, the tag part of my little jewelry business grew and in November 2010 Doggone Tags landed in Etsy.

These days I work from my home studio in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia where I make cool tags for happy people and their furry friends. Each tag is lovingly made by hand and starts with a drawing in my sketch book. My tools of the trade are simple... metal shears, a jewelers saw, stamps, hammers, a torch, and a tumbler. Old fashioned metal smithing. It's not precise, but full of whimsy and detail.... and love.

Hope to be able to help you with something special for your cool pet... or for you, because after all, we are here for ALL the cool pets and the humans who love them !

woof, meow, and many many thanks !

Shop policies

Last updated on August 6, 2020
During the pandemic our schedule has extended and is approx. 2-3 weeks out. Some orders (custom designed pieces) may take a little longer. If you need something sooner please get in touch prior to purchase and we'll try to work with you !

Please note that we try and get the colors in the pictures as close to the original piece as possible, but lighting, monitors, and printers are all different. The metals we use are nickel silver, yellow brass, and copper. No other coloring is used. You may note a grayish (some say gray-blue) cast in the pics. This is a patina applied to the metals to bring out the details in the work. As each is done by hand, each will be slightly different and the amount of patina will also vary.

In addition, we use templates to cut the pieces from sheet metal, but again, these are all hand made and there will be subtle variations here as well.

A note about metals: all the metals used in our tags will tarnish over time. The rate at which this happens is completely dependent on the environment the tag is in. Oils from the dogs skin can affect this as well as humidity and the pet's access to the ocean or lakes.

******************* COVID UPDATE ************** hey gang ! Clearly COVID is having an impact on us all and shipping companies/customs are not immune to this ! Please understand that we are getting the tags out on time, but can not guarantee the shipping times. Patience is appreciated. Please take this into consideration


ORDERS INSIDE THE US: All orders within the US will have a tracking number. Please check this before contacting regarding a missing package. While we do not cover the loss of a tag once it is shown delivered to the post office, we will do our best to help recover it.

ORDERS OUTSIDE of the US: All packages outside the US will automatically ship with tracking . A reminder about items purchased going outside the United States.. your package will be marked with the exact amount of the purchase and some countries charge a tariff. Doggonetags has no control over this amount, so please keep it in mind when ordering :)

Doggone Tags does not guarantee shipping of any kind, but, when possible, will help the customer recover lost packages. NOTE: SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF THE US is taking upwards of 3 weeks (more typical is 2 weeks) due to some extra security border/customs. Damage or loss of the tag is not covered unless your package was shipped Priority. Please contact doggonetags prior to shipping if you would like that included.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs
1. What size tag should I order for my pet?

We offer tags as small as 7/8” and as large as 2”.
Finding the right size for your pet depends just as much on your pet’s height than it does the weight.

Here’s a good rule of thumb:
7/8” is good for cats and the smallest of dogs. Think Chihuahua, Yorkie, mini
Dachshund.
1” is perfect dogs like small Beagles, mini Schnauzer, French Bulldogs, and Boston
terriers
1 1/8” is best for small- medium dogs like Spaniels, Shiba Inus, Havanese.
1 ¼”- 1 3/8” is great for pups like Labs, Doodles, Basset Hounds and Golden
Retrievers
1 ¾- 2” is for the biggies… Great Danes and Wolf Hounds

If you’re still unsure, we find it can be helpful for people to cut a circle from paper the same size you’re considering and hold it up to your pup.

2. Are Doggonetags sturdy? Yes they are ! Just ask the thousands of pups who are still wearing their first tag that they’ve had for years ! Of course wear and tear and how rough and tumble your pup is has an impact, but we know from experience that the tags hold up to even the toughest customer play !

3. My tag is getting darker, is this normal? Doggonetags items are created from 3 different colors of metal. Each tarnishes over time. While we can’t tell you how long that will take (depends on each dog and each environment) , we can tell you it will happen. You can keep your tag shiny by using a polishing pad to buff it up on occasion. Please do not use a liquid polishing liquid as it takes all the patina off that helps show off those details like your pet’s name and phone number.

4. How do I clean my tag? On occasion your pup might do what pups do and go tromping through the mud. No fear about your tag ! Simply wash it off in a mild detergent and warm water and wipe dry. If you want to keep it shiny, we suggest doing that as often as necessary and then buffing it with a micro polishing pad. Those can be purchased in our shop or in most craft stores.

5. If I’ve changed my number can I get that fixed on the tag? Because your number has been either hand stamped or engraved, it’s not possible to change the number on the id tag.

6. What is your shipping time and how do you ship? Please check our shipping policies page for this information as it changes depending on the season

7. Can you personalize the tags you offer? Absolutely ! Each tag we offer can be made with your pet’s name and at least one phone number on the back. See the tag description to see what will fit.

8. Do you take custom orders? Not at the present time.

9. What is your warranty? Please see below !



WARRANTY: Doggone Tags will warranty our craftsmanship, but we can not warranty against lost tags or a tag as it tarnishes. (Please read about metal tarnish above)The split rings we use are top of the line and VERY sturdy. They will pull open if your pet gets it's tag caught on something (a great safety feature), but won't break through normal wear. If you have a problem with your tag, please contact us. We may ask you to ship your tag back or to send us a pic so we can see the defect.

If you have a piece come off your tag in the first 3 months, please arrange with us to ship it back and we'll get it fixed for you ! After the 3 month mark, we can still fix the tag for you, but a fee will be charged depending on the amount of damage. A picture helps us to determine this.
