Whether we’re trying to get a good night’s sleep… or conducting zoom calls from our home offices… we don’t want to hear the annoying jingle of dog tags (or cat tags). However, where I live… I need to maintain id on my dog (Ms. Buttons) at all times in the event of an emergency or need for quick evaluation to my basement in the event of a tornado or dangerous weather conditions. (And yes, she's microchipped.)
So here is a quick and easy solution to this common problem for dog owners and pet parents.
Level of Difficulty
Estimated Time to Complete
Once you have the item(s) needed, you can solve the dog tag jingle and clanking issues in under 2 minutes.
Varies depending on your items needed . For this project... under $10 for the tag silencer. If you decide you also want the rubberized name identification tag, add $25.

NO TOOLS NEED! No fingernails sacrificed when updating tags!
Safety experts warn not to put your dog’s name on their ID tag. Knowing the your dog’s name may help a thief pass on your dog to the unsuspecting new owners because it appears the thief knows your dog (because the dog responds to their name). Instead, my mommy had the following printed on my ID tag and recommends the following:
CALL cell number
for Pet Tag Holder & Silencer
for Rubber Silent Slide On Pet ID Tag
My mommy attached my rubberized id tag with her contact info (phone number) hidden from strangers yet easily accessible if I were lost.
So if you hate listening to your pets tags clink and jingle, save yourself the pain and end the frustration. Check out this tag silencer and/or rubber id tag. You'll love it!
