A Big Dog ID Tag for a BIG Dog
Wait, It’s Guaranteed For Ten Years? Even if I Lose it?
Heck Yes. We got tired of dog name tags we bought – regardless of the shape or size – fading away, getting lost or being traded for food (that was our New Zealand Huntaway. They’re bright dogs)
…so we made a better one. Out of solid brass.
You won’t have to buy another dog name tag for ten years. Guaranteed. There are minor Ts&Cs, but we will keep your dog safely tagged. For at least ten years. Even if your dog swaps its name tag for food. Guaranteed.
To make your dog name tag strong enough to last for ten years, the brass is 2mm thick, the hole size, position and tooling specified by the UK’s leading Spitfire Engineer who restores Spitfires at Old Warden.
Brass has strong antimicrobial properties (it repels germs) It’s lovely and shiny out of the box, dulling stylishly and gracefully with age. Perfect dog tag material, as it’s not too heavy and engraves deeply.
A few Ten Year Tags FAQs
33mm in diameter and 2mm of thick, beautiful brass too.
Good question! This is where most people answer you by starting to quote the outdated Control of Dogs Order. We’ve written a whole page on why this is Order is out dated, not fit for purpose and generally just annoying.
It’s a 1992 law that does not take into account that everyone has a mobile phone and – importantly – every dog is Microchipped with its owner’s information (law since 2016).
At Ten Year Tags we do not point people at the control of dogs order. We know all the dogs we tag are kept under control and properly looked after at all times. We recommend a name – your dog’s name or yours – and a mobile phone number. Especially on a bone shaped dog name tag.
It’s up to you of course! We’re happy to engrave what you want. Here’s that page about the 1992 Control of Dogs Order.
It’s what it says on the tin. We got tired of having to get a new dog tag every year, sometimes more often, because the previous one had either disappeared or become unreadable. So, as we say above, we decided to make a better one. And guarantee it for Ten Years.
We haven’t got a catch, we’ve a cap, which we need to ensure we stay in business and can ensure the dogs of the world are properly tagged!
We provide three completely free replacements on the basis that our dog name tags are made to last Ten Years. However, we understand dogs and know tags can get lost no matter how hard you try to look after them, so it’s on the basis of losing one every two and a half years we agree to provide up to three additional tags completely free, after which it’s time to buy a new dog name tag. UK orders only for free shipping, overseas we charge a small shipping cost in all instances.
Do you think that’s fair? We’re easy to contact and would love to hear what you think.
Oh go on then. We use Royal Mail and charge £2.99 for First Class* shipping.
*Everything we do is first class here at Ten Year Tags.
Royal Mail says 5 to 7 days for Rest of World and 3 to 5 days for Europe. Sometimes it’s quicker, sometimes slower. Do remember to give us 3 days in the workshop to make your dog name tag by hand too of course.
Here just a few of the amazing countries we’ve already delivered orders to in 2019 (in addition to the UK of course):
Good question. We have ambitious plans for changing this, but – for now – we supply you with a super-strong split ring.
We’re well aware the split ring is a weak link, especially rubbish ones often sent out with dog tags from other places. We have dozens of them here, from falconry to deep sea fishing (TOO strong and a bit too small. Impossible to use without split ring-specific pliers) all tested for strength, usability and sustainability.
The split ring we send out is solid enough to not break should you accidentally attach your lead to it. We’ve tested for this extensively.
However, if your dog is massive and as strong as an ox, he or she probably would break it.
Attaching your lead to the split ring is to be avoided at all costs.
Ours are made by a lovely company in the midlands.
We can engrave in a fair few fonts
Not every font works, but if you have a favoured font, let us know and we will both try it out AND find a near-alternative that we know will work.
We engrave each dog tag to order and hand-finish each one. We’ve strict quality control and if yours isn’t perfect, we do it again until it meets our strict Quality Control.
There’s infilling by hand too, which has to dry.
Please allow FIVE DAYS for us to hand-make and deliver your dog name tag. It could well be with you in less, but we like to underpromise and over-deliver 😉
We take getting your order fulfilled as well and as quickly as possible seriously. We don’t want any un-tagged dogs out there!
