Smash has a deep-rooted disdain for collars with dangly tags. We’re not sure if something happened in his past or if it’s just one of his quirks, but if you put a collar on him with tags hanging off of it, he goes nuts. Something in his mind breaks, and all he can focus on is trying to chew those tags off, not to mention the collar that came with them. And, since he can’t really reach the tags with his mouth (his nickname is “No Face” for a reason), he tries — desperately — to pull them into a chewable position with his front paws. It’s… pretty sad.
Rather than let our sweet, door-darting dog run free and collar-less, we knew we needed to find a collar with an integrated tag. So, when DogIDs.com reached out to offer their new ScruffTag Paracord Collar for review, I jumped at the chance!
