What Metal Should You Choose for Your Dog ID Tag?

what metal should you choose for your dog tag

When it comes to choosing a dog ID tag, the material is one of the most important factors to consider. Not only does it affect the tag's durability and longevity, but it also plays a significant role in its aesthetic appeal. At our store, we specialize in metal dog tags that are not only functional but also stylish. We offer tags made from three different metals: Copper, Brass, and Nickel Silver.

Copper Dog Tags

Copper is a popular choice for dog tags due to its beautiful, warm color that stands out against your dog's fur. It's a soft metal, which makes it ideal for hand-stamping personalized messages. Over time, copper develops a unique patina, giving the tag a vintage, worn-in look. Our copper tags are made from high-quality 14-gauge blanks, ensuring they are durable and long-lasting.

Brass Dog Tags

Brass dog tags are a classic choice. The golden hue of brass is eye-catching and elegant, making it a perfect choice for pet owners who prefer a touch of luxury. Like copper, brass is also soft enough to be hand-stamped with your pet's name and your contact information. Our brass tags are also made from 14-gauge blanks for extra durability.

Nickel Silver Dog Tags

Nickel Silver, also known as German Silver, is an alloy of nickel, copper, and zinc. It has a bright silver appearance, making it a great alternative to more expensive metals like sterling silver. Nickel Silver is harder than both copper and brass, making it extremely durable. Our Nickel Silver tags are hand-stamped and made from 14-gauge blanks.

All our tags can be personalized with your pet's name and a unique design on the front, and up to two phone numbers or an address on the back. This ensures that if your pet ever gets lost, they can be returned to you quickly and safely.

Rust-free dog tags for beach lovers

An important feature of Copper, Brass, and Nickel Silver is that they are all non-ferrous metals. This means they do not contain iron and are resistant to rust and corrosion. This is a critical feature for dog tags, especially for dogs who love the outdoors and swimming, like ours do. We are proud dog parents to four dogs who love the beaches in SW Ireland. They spend a lot of time swimming in the sea, and having a dog ID tag that does not rust is crucial in this environment.

When choosing a metal for your dog's ID tag, consider your pet's lifestyle and your personal style. All our metals are high-quality and designed to withstand the rough and tumble of a dog's life. Whether you choose Copper, Brass, or Nickel Silver, you can rest assured that you're getting a tag that is durable, stylish, and, most importantly, keeps your pet safe.
