A few Ten Year Tags FAQs

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 This is where most people answer you by starting to quote the outdated Control of Dogs Order.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 and not fit for purpose. Basically, 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.

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.

A Catch?

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.

We recommend the perfectly-sized 27mm Dog Tag, it’s made from 2mm thick brass, which enables us to guarantee your dog name tag for Ten Years.

Yes. Even if you lose it.

Most novelty shapes and different, thinner materials, just can’t be engraved deeply enough, are weaker and far more prone to breaking or wearing away.

We can now make a larger (33MM) dog name tag for those really big dogs out there. Want a bone shape? Well okay, don’t tell anyone though. We’ve designed our own to meet our exacting quality standards.

All dog name tags you buy from Ten Year Tags are made to last Ten Years or more of course and carry our unique Ten Year Guarantee.

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.

Yes we can engrave dog tags in all fonts

We can engrave any font

As long as the font you want is available as a Truetype Font and we can find it, we’ll be able to engrave using it for you. If it doesn’t work for any reason we will, of course, let you know and replace it with an alternative or refund you accordingly.

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!
