Dog I.D tags

hi guys.

greetings from the UK from me & Suki (8month old DS). I'm based in the UK and its required by law to have an I.D tag on your dog or face up to a £5000 ($6.500) fine. as she is growing fast I'm progressing through to a larger collar. I currently have a small Tactipup 1" Lite (Cobra buckle)with a slide on agitation plate which is great as I hate the constant jingling of an id disc. I thought id go all out and have purchased a Modern Icon 1.5-inch collar but struggling to find an id tag to fit. does anyone know of any makers that do an id to fit?

many thanks

I've never seen a plate like that here. Can you use an embroidered Velcro patch?

hi Tim,

thanks for the reply.

There called agility ID tags, the idea behind them is that they are less likely to get caught on equipment whilst the dog is training. I actually bought this brass one through Amazon UK with free engraving and it worked great for the 1inch TactiPup collar. I ordered the largest size (as there are four sizes) as I thought the 37mm opening (1.4inch) might work but it didn't.

There is room on the Modern icon collar for embroidered patch 1.4-inch x 4.5-inch
