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.
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 This is where most people answer you by starting to quote the outdated Control of Dogs Order.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 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 £2.99 to cover consumables, the production costs remaining free (UK orders only, 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.
Want to get one some other way? I’m afraid we’re not in any shops yet, but are working on this.
Thanks for the order details so far

Polishing the Brass...
Some error has occured.
*That Ten Year Guarantee
We did mention it didn’t we? Yes? Good.
Here’s the summary: We’ll obviously replace or refund should you not be happy in line with all your usual rights.
However, we’re certain you’ll love the care and attention to detail we’ve put into making sure your dog will find his or her way back to you, should they go for a wander.
We’ll replace your dog name tag FREE OF CHARGE three times. Whenever you want. After which we charge only just enough to cover the consumables: £2.99 – that’s it. This helps ensure we don’t go out of business should one of our customers lose their dog’s name tag every single day for ten years. That would be annoying.
