Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about dog tags and engraving / personalization of dog tags.
In this section we from mypfote.com - we are happy dog owners ourselves - collect questions that would arise for ourselves when choosing one or more dog tags. If you have any questions, you are of course welcome to contact us. Our support staff can be reached by email email@example.com.
Why does my dog need a dog tag, although he is already chipped?
If it should happen that your dog escapes from you, then an engraved dog tag / animal tag helps a lot. If a dog is not identifiable by a tag, then this is done via the implanted chip and the registration of your pet at e.g. Tasso via the animal shelter. This cumbersome way can be shortened, because via the brand you are directly available for the finder and he can contact you by phone. Thus, your darling does not have to endure a few more stations, but he can immediately return to his mistress or master.
Which texts can be engraved on the dog tags?
By default, you can engrave name and phone number when ordering in our engraving store. Some brands also offer the address of the owner. Not all dog tags can be engraved with address. Just choose the right dog tag from the assortment of our engraving store and send us the engraving data when ordering.
What is the difference between dog tag and tax tag?
The engraved dog tag is used to identify the dog when returning a lost animal. The tax stamp indicates that the owner has paid taxes for the dog. In many municipalities the tax stamp has already been abolished on the grounds that the animals are already chipped, which is quite sufficient.
What engraving is useful for the dog tag?
In any case, the name of the dog and the phone number should be on it. Some dog tags still offer the option to engrave the date of birth of the dog, which in our view is absolutely optional. Important for the return of the lost animal is the phone number (optimal cell phone) of the owner. If your phone number changes, you must remember to give your pet a new tag.
In which materials are engraved dog tags available?
We offer engraved dog tags in materials like polished brass or polished brass. Furthermore, our engraved dog tags are available in stainless steel, steel or printed in sturdy leather, which looks particularly noble. It is important for us that you can enjoy the engraved dog tag for a long time and that the material is as corrosion-free as possible. Together with the engraved dog tag we deliver a matching key ring, with which the dog tag can be attached to the collar or harness.
In which shapes do you offer the engraved dog tags?
We carry different shapes and designs in our engraving store. Examples are paw, bone, heart or the very classic round dog tag. Especially popular for dog tags is of course the shape bone. For which dog tag you finally decide remains mistress or master's decision, but we try to constantly expand our range.
Does it make sense for my dog to wear a dog tag with engraving?
Absolutely - it can always happen that the dog runs away. Sometimes this happens faster than you would like to think. For this case, the dog should be equipped with either an engraved dog collar or a dog tag with an engraving. One knows his small Pappenheimer very fast in this concern and caution is always better than indulgence and if name and telephone number are engraved, can be taken up fast contact with you as dog owners.
Is there an obligation to wear an engraved dog tag?
No, there is no obligation to wear a dog tag on your paw. Nevertheless, an engraved dog tag makes sense from our point of view, especially if there is no engraved collar at hand. The desired engraving for each of our pet tags must be entered when selecting the model in our engraving store mypfote.com.
Can I have a completely free text engraved on the dog tag?
It is possible to specify wishes, we decide on a case-by-case basis whether it makes sense to squeeze a lot of text into one line of text - this may not look optimal on the tag if too much text is provided on the dog tag. We provide information in the product descriptions about how many lines are possible.
Can I also engrave in capital letters or special characters?
Yes, this is possible. If you want to engrave the dog's name in capital letters on the dog tag, then enter capital letters in the input field for the name. However, it should always be noted that not too much text is packed into one line - we check each individual case and may contact you by e-mail with any queries. We will then take care of your desired engraving on your pendant.
Are different fonts available on the name tag?
Yes, we offer different fonts. Especially for the larger dog tags, this is also very nice to engrave. We have stored a font sample for the respective name tag for which a different font is possible. When ordering, in addition to name and phone number, the font (font) can be selected. We have taken care in the selection of fonts that they are not overly stylish that the readability suffers, but still stylish enough that it creates a beautiful and modern image on the pendant.
Are symbols also possible when engraving the dog tag?
Our creative tag has multiple symbols / designs and fonts and can be beautifully engraved with dog name and phone number on the front. The high gloss stainless steel or brass look of the dog tag frames the symbol as a motif very nicely and makes the tag a highlight.
How is the dog tag attached?
The engraved dog tag - no matter what shape - is attached with a key ring, supplied with the tag is attached to the dog collar or harness. It is important that the tag is attached clearly visible - in the event that the dog runs away, the tag can be easily perceived. Therefore, dog tags made of brass or stainless steel are particularly suitable, as they are conspicuous. In any case, the attachment must not come loose due to movement of the dog.
How durable are the name tags from mypfote?
We select the blanks of our tags so that they are durable and stable. Engraved lettering and symbols are applied to the material by us with appropriate intensity, so that our laser engraving is not only superficially "inscribed", but deeply and durably embedded in the material.
Can the dog tags also be used for other pets?
Of course, the tags can also be used for other pets. Especially for cats, which also like to run away once in a while, a dog tag is optimal. We have in our engraving store also smaller brands, which are very well suited for cats... thus the dog tag becomes a cat tag and instead of the dog's name, the cat's name is transferred to us :-)
Can the back of the dog tag also be engraved?
The back of the name tag can also be engraved after consultation with us. To do this, please enter the input form in the ordering process. Since we at MyPfote do the laser engraving with our own laser, we are able to respond to special requests.
What is the diameter of your dog tags?
Our round engraving tags have a diameter of 35mm for the large creative tags and between 20 and 30mm diameter for the regular tags. Both the front and the back of the tag can be engraved with laser engraving. The colors of the stamps depend on the material with which stamps are coated.
