Announcement    🌟 Orders are shipping out 4-5 weeks from the order date. Please refer to your order confirmation for ship dates. If you have questions please send us a message. We will have an auto reply message in place during certain times of the day and we will respond as soon as we’re able. Thank you!

⭐️ All of my work is hand stamped, original, copyrighted, and available exclusively through Metal Hounds. To ensure quality craftsmanship, each piece is an original Metal Hounds design and handcrafted one at a time, by one artist.

⭐️ Each pet tag is handmade to order with thick, hand stamped, quality metal. The designs are unique to Metal Hounds, and many of the tools used to make the tags are also handmade and one of a kind, so you won't find them anywhere else.

⭐️ Please read the full listing descriptions. They should have all the information you'll need, but if you still have questions, please contact us before you order.

⭐️ The current lead time for orders is 4-5 weeks. This does not include the time it takes for your package to travel to its destination, once it in the USPS mail system. Our lead time is subject to change and will be updated here if it does. There is only one of us making the tags so please be patient. Thank you for understanding. Please check your order for an estimated ship date. I have a rush listing available but please contact me before purchasing to ensure I can rush your order. http://etsy.me/2nREjV1

⭐️ All of the pet tags are completely handmade, and are done by using a variety of metal stamps to complete each design. I don't measure or use guides, it is all free hand work, so please expect slight variances from the photos.

⭐️ The tags are designed to have a rustic and vintage look. They're also designed in a way that names and numbers will only fit in certain areas of the tags. If you'd like to make a change in placement, please contact me before ordering. Otherwise, I will do my best to fulfill requests and the sale will be considered custom and final.

⭐️ Only one person is making the tags. Every part of the process is done by hand. Each number and letter is stamped individually. The designs are made up of several individual stamps, some of which are exclusive to Metal Hounds. The edges are filed and sanded to ensure there are no sharp areas on the tag. Some tags, the 3D designs, require soldering as well. To finish, they go through a series of hand polishing techniques to achieve the look intended. There is a consistent flow of orders, and they are handmade, so please note the lead time above.

⭐️⭐️ Please be sure to add the correct information for your tag.

⭐️ I am human and I do make mistakes sometimes. Please contact me if there is an error with your order and I will provide a solution.

⭐️ Priority shipping makes your package arrive faster once it's been shipped, but does not move your order ahead in my shop. If you need an order rushed, please contact us prior to ordering.

⭐️⭐️ It is extremely important that you provide the correct address when you place your order. Sending a message with the correct address after you place your order, doesn't always ensure the correct delivery. We do our best but having the correct address to begin with makes it easier to avoid errors.

⭐️ If your package isn't delivered to you because the address you provided is incorrect, and it is sent back to us, you will need to give us the correct information and pay for shipping again. Also, we will not refund your original transaction if you decide not to pay for shipping to the corrected address.

⭐️⭐️ We are not responsible for your package once it has been shipped. Your package will include a tracking number. Orders take 4-5 weeks to ship out, and are done in the order they are received. You will receive an email notification with tracking information when it ships. After you receive your notification it may take 1-2 days for USPS tracking details to show.

• 1 1/2” - large to extra large dogs

Will my phone number go on the back of the tag?

Care & Cleaning Instructions

The tags are metal so they will tarnish and gain a natural patina and aged look. As with anything your dog wears, their tags require some maintenance. You can keep them looking new with some simple steps.

1. Mild soap and water along with fine steel wool and/or a polishing pad can be used to clean the natural patina off your tag. Avoid using harsh cleaners or chemicals on your tag.

2. If the letters or numbers lose their dark coloring and are not as easy to see, you can color in the letters and numbers with a black Sharpie marker. Once you've done that, use fine steel wool and/or polishing pad to clean off any excess Sharpie marks and polish the tag.

We send Care Instruction cards along with every order.

My tag arrived but it has an error or isn't what I ordered?

Please contact us immediately. We will answer within 24 hours and offer a solution.

Why will it take 4-5 weeks for my order to be shipped?

There is a consistent flow of orders and the tags are made one at a time to ensure attention to detail. The tags are hand stamped and each number and letter is stamped individually. They are made by using several different stamps to create the design. Some tags require heating with a torch and/or soldering. They all go through a series of uniquely developed hand polishing techniques to achieve the intended appearance.

My package is delayed or lost, what should I do?

Orders take 4-5 weeks to ship and are done in the order they are received. You will receive an email notification with tracking details when it ships. After you receive your notification it may take 1-2 days for the USPS tracking details to show. If you do not see any tracking details 7 days after you’ve received your notification, please let us know.

If you have questions about your package after it has shipped, please check your tracking info. The USPS provides an option for you to sign up for tracking updates. Please use this link to report a missing package. https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm

Metal Hounds is not responsible for replacing or refunding orders of delayed, lost, or stolen packages.

Will my tag come with a ring to attach it to my dog’s collar?

Each tag includes a set of quality complementary split rings*. Stainless steel split rings will be included with silver, aluminum, copper and bronze tags. Brass split rings will be included with brass tags. The use of split rings for your pet’s tag is optional. We do offer attachment upgrades for purchase including s-hooks and Nite-Ize®️Tag Locks.

We provide complimentary quality split rings with each tag. The split rings are strong and may need to be attached with pliers. A piece of tape can be applied to the tag, above the hole, to prevent scratches when attaching the split ring. Painter’s tape or medical tape works best.
