Dog Tag FAQs
What info should you put on a dog tag? All of our dog tags are customizable, so you can make your dog's tag as basic, quirky, or clever as you'd like. Your contact information is a must. Add your phone number, your address, or even an email address. You can also include your name or a useful piece of information to help someone care for your dog until they can be returned home safely.
What should you not put on a dog tag? You can put as much information as you are comfortable with, but leaving your dog's name off of the tag may make it more challenging for someone to steal your dog. Besides, including your name and phone number are all someone needs to be able to contact you if they find your pooch.
Do Dogs Legally Have To Wear Dog Tags in Canada? It depends on where you are. While personal dog ID tags are highly recommended, not every province or municipality requires them by law. What is almost always required is a city license. Check with your local city/municipality for the requirements in your area.
Should Dogs Wear ID Tags? Yes, to ensure your pet's safe return if your doggo or kitty becomes lost. Ideally, your pet should have a metal tag attached that cannot break off the collar or tear away. The tag's material should offer scratch resistance and is in a suitable size.

Nowadays, many pets are microchipped, so you might wonder why you need a pet ID tag. If a Good Samaritan finds your dog, then they will have no way to access the information on the microchip. Only animal shelters, veterinarians, and animal control have the scanner needed to obtain a microchip's information. However, a pet ID tag is easily visible to anyone for fast identification.
Long Term Legibility
A personalized, engraved id tag offers long-term legibility. The depth and precision of the cut will last for decades on stainless steel, bronze, and other metals. There is no scuffing, smudging or scratching to mar the metal tag. Each tag is created to last years with crisp and clear engraving.
Proper Weight and Size
Most manufacturers offer id tags in two sizes with the proper weight needed to meet your dog’s size requirements while ensuring comfort.
Easy to Read
When your dog is missing, you want a pet id tag that is easy to read so your four-legged friend is returned quickly. At Homes Alive Pets, our pet id tags are easy-to-read with clear and concise engravings.
