We all love our dogs. We want them to have the best that we can offer them, from the best food, the best toys, and we will even try a kong dog bed or any of the best dog beds on the market to make sure they are comfortable. We just want people to know that we love our pooches and how friendly they can be. As pet owners, we spend most of our time obsessing about their wellbeing, as if they were our babies, which, for the record they are. Many an hour has been spent in the local dog park talking to other dog moms about bully sticks and their other favourite natural chews for their little angels. We also put lots of time and effort into training them to make sure they are ready to enjoy life as freely as possible. Even if you work alongside a dog training company whilst you train your fur baby, it still can still be demanding. But it is more than worth it!
We let the world know who we are through the clothes we wear, and it’s not much different for our dogs. People can tell if a pup is approachable by the color of their collar and the shape of their pet name tag. We know if we can go up to a dog for a cuddle based on the lead its owner uses and the harness the pooch wears. Is your pupper wary of strangers? Does your mutt piddle from excitement when they’re about to meet a new playmate? Are you looking for a way to tell people a little bit about your dog without having to really say anything? You can.
Here are 10 pet name tags that will showcase your puppy’s unique personality!
The Dog Bone
Maybe the most common name tag of all, the dog bone pet tag is definitely the most neutral. Conjuring images of dogs giving chase and burying their rawhide bone in the backyard, a dog wearing a dog bone tag tells us they’re a casual pup. They like getting a good run in at the dog park and know all the commands, like sit, stay, and play dead.
The Paw Print
Like the dog bone-wearing pup, the dog who wears a paw print tag knows the rules of the house and not to jump up on people. This dog knows how to beg for table scraps and uses his puppy-dog eyes look to its full effect.
Worn by the happy-go-lucky shelter pup, the shamrock dog tag displays the owner’s and the dog’s luck at having found each other at this time in their lives. A symbol of hope, strength and courage of spirit, the shamrock-toting pup loves life and does everything he can to show his humans just how much he loves them.
Modeled by the political-savvy dog, a patriot dog tag emblazoned with the Republican elephant or Democratic donkey shows what the pooch’s family believes and takes pride in. Usually only worn around election time, a dog who wears the symbol of your sworn political enemy will still melt your heart with doggie kisses and tail wags, the same cannot be said of their owner.
The flower pendant name tag is for the sweet girl puppy made of sugar and spice and all things nice. She’s probably the first pup her human has owned since her childhood dog passed away, and her owner wants to do everything they can to make sure this dog knows how incredibly loved they are. The flower-powered pup most likely jumps on people when she’s told not to, and probably attacks young children with sloppy puppy kisses. Though not the most well-behaved, the dogs that wear flower pet name tags are sweet-natured and goofy.
Worn around the neck of a young female pup, the butterfly pendant tag is worn by the pup whose human parents believe in leading joyful lives and serving their community. The dog with the butterfly wings most likely works as a service or therapy dog, and bring smiles and laughter to the senior citizens and children she visits.
A symbol of love and good faith, dogs with heart pet name tags are probably the first dogs ever owned by their humans. The heart tag is a promise to the pup that they will never know a life without love. This pup may be more skittish around strangers, having always been sitting in their human’s lap or lying at their feet. Once their shyness wears off, they believe every human they meet a best good friend.
Worn by little dogs with a big bark, their crown name tag displays the high seniority they have in their pack. Spoiled by adoring human parents, this dog is less patient with children and prefers only the company of its immediate human family, but only then for belly rubs.
This dog has proven time and again that loyalty is synonymous with their breed, be they pure bred or mutt. The dog with the star loves to play but will stand at full attention when their owner calls for it. A mature dog wise beyond its years, this dog can even bring smiles to the faces of cat people.
Protector and devoted companion, the shield tag stands as a badge of honor for its furry wearer. This dog puts family first, and will not be distracted by strangers hoping to give them a good scratch behind the ears. Family is all this dog can see, and it is only family the pup will answer to.
