The Best Dog Tags in the UK

Best dog tags in the UK

30 May 2023

Does my dog need to wear a tag?

Every dog should be wearing a dog tag when they are outside. Not only does it mean if your dog goes walkabout you can be contacted quickly with the details from the tag, but it is in fact a legal requirement for every dog to wear a collar and a tag when out in public.

In the UK every pet dog is also required to be microchipped and have an identification tag, and if they don’t you can face a fine of up to £2000!

What information should be on a dog tag?

The tag must have your name and address on it, but a telephone number can definitely be useful so someone can give you a quick call, which can help you to be reunited with your pooch pal quicker!

But just because tags are functional, doesn’t mean they can’t look great, and there are so many options out there. 

The traditional metal tags, wooden ones and even saddle leather, there’s so much choice! So here are some of the top dog tags you can check out today:
