I get so excited when I hear that two of my favorite brands are collaborating. This time, it’s blanketID and Mascot, who worked together to create a specially-designed range of ID tags that have the security of blanketID and the luck and charm of Mascot. The tags are available through blanketID and Mascot and various retailers.
PetHub has a very cool approach to smart ID tags with their Link ScruffTag Collar. Each collar comes with a unique web address and QR code that can be scanned with any smart phone. The way it works is simple! Someone finds your pet. First, they try the phone number and if you’re not answering, they can scan the collar with their phone or type in the web address listed on the tag. What shows up are any details you’ve chosen to enter about your pet, including other emergency contacts (spouse, neighbor, friend, vet, pet sitter, doggie daycare, etc.), important medications, dietary needs, and anything else you think someone rescuing your pet know. You can update your pet’s info on pethub.com (for free!) as often as needed to ensure your pet’s records are current.
Tagg ? The Pet Tracker? is a new wireless pet tracking device that uses GPS to pinpoint your dog’s location anywhere, anytime. Available now for pre-order online, the Tagg system notifies you immediately (via text or email) if your dog strays from a set zone (or “geofence”) — meaning your escape artist or neighborhood wanderer might finally be stopped in his tracks.
Animal Outfitters has these cute “Hello My Name Is” tags — round or square in a few different colors.
If you’re like me, than your dog probably has about ten different collars. And if you’re a lot like me, than you’ve probably chipped or broken too many fingers nails to count trying to move ID tags from one collar to another. It’s a pain to say the least! Rubit Dog Tag Clips are the perfect solution to this problem. Light-weight and easy to put on, this super high tension clip ensures that your dog’s tags will stay put. Rubits are available on their website or at The Hip Hound in two sizes and a variety of colors. Hooray for tiny solutions!
BlanketID has released new tag designs for 2011 in bright, colorful modern graphic styles as well as a brand new program targeted to help local animal charities.
