My first dog was a Rough Coated Collie. He had such a thick coat that you couldn’t see his collar at all! I never thought of changing out his collar just for vanity, but now that my dogs have slightly more neck showing under all that hair, I am more inclined to check out the collar aisle at my favorite pet boutiques for fun new collars for the girls.
The problem, though, is it is such a pain to remove the tags to switch them onto a new collar. There are several removable ID tag clips on the market, but I’ve heard so many complaints that they aren’t sturdy and break easily. I didn’t want to chance losing their id tags, so kept looking for a better solution. I finally found it in the boat store!
The Nite Ize S-Biner Steel MicroLock is not specifically a dog tag holder, but it works great as one, and I’ve had these on for several months without a problem at all. It’s very sturdy, made from stainless steel, with a locking gate closure to keep the clips secure.
It even comes as a set, so perfect for multiple dog homes, or if you have a separate set of tags for traveling, showing, etc.
Nite Ize also makes an item that is SPECIFICALLY for dog tags, but it is more expensive and only comes one in a pack…
