Congratulations to the winner, Opie!
Over the years we have accumulated quite the collection of failed dog I.D. tags. Despite the fact that we have three dogs all under three years old, we have somehow managed to go through many many tags. Some were chewed, some were bent, and some just plain broke so we decided to make our own tough tags for dog's who play as rough as ours do.
When we began designing Ruff Tags, the first thing we knew without a doubt was that our tags needed to be made from heavy duty metal that could withstand canine antics without weighing them down. Which is why we turned to aluminum. Aluminum is super strong and yet incredibly lightweight, making it the prefect medium for a dog tag.
The second problem we wanted to solve was the eternal split-ring dilemma. If you've ever used a knife blade and paper clip to pry open a split-ring, you might understand the frustration we speak of. Whoever invented the split-ring, clearly never opened one. Our dogs wear many collars, and we're sure yours do too, which is why we wanted moving your dog's I.D. tags from one collar to another to be seamless and easy. Enter the CLIP! Each Ruff Tag comes with any easy to use clip to quickly attach your new tag to any D-ring you might choose.
We have come to learn that engraved tags eventually rub off and become all but unreadable, therefore rendering them useless. The whole idea of the I.D. tag is to ensure your beloved pup can get home safely should they ever stray. Ruff Tags are deeply stamped by hand to assure you your pet’s information stays intact and helps them find their way home.
Each Ruff Tag is hand made with love and care to create a tag that’s just as unique as your dog.
