Posted on March 10 2022
We can hardly wait for warmer weather, and the chance to get away for Spring Break. If you’re planning a getaway, then you’re also making plans for your dog. Some of you are planning dog friendly-trips… maybe camping in a tent, cabin, or RV or staying in a dog-friendly city at an Airbnb.
If you’re traveling by plane or to a place that just isn’t great to take a dog, then you’re busy trying to find pet accommodations. This could mean keeping your dog at home and hiring a pet-sitter, having your fur kid stay with Grandma and Grandpa, or finding a safe and reliable kennel for your pup.
Whether you’re traveling with your dog or making arrangements for them while you’re gone, there is one tool that you absolutely need. Wondering what it is? Keep reading!
All About Embroidered Dog Collars
The most important tool you can have when it comes to your dog’s safety is a custom embroidered collar. Unfortunately, a collar and dog tag doesn’t always cut it. So often, tags fall off of a dog’s collar, leaving them unidentifiable to a person walking by.
And believe it or not, your dog’s collar isn’t just for style or walking on leash. It serves a different purpose. All Duke & Fox collars come in bright, fun, vibrant styles to make sure that they are noticeable against your dog’s coat. With a Duke & Fox collar, a passerby can easily spot your dog’s collar and their embroidered information.
A customized embroidered collar doesn’t just stand out more. If the worst happens and somehow your dog gets away, you know that you have all of your important information in one place. You can have your name and phone number embroidered right on the collar. In addition, if you have a dog with medical needs or allergies, you can add an important note about this on the buckle of your dog’s collar. If your dog is picked up by a well-meaning person, not only will your dog find his way back to you, the person will also know if your dog has a beef allergy, is diabetic, or is hearing or vision impaired.
Use an embroidered dog collar while boarding
Kennel staff have a lot of experience, and they are committed to caring for your dog. But unfortunately, a kennel can also get very busy at certain times of the year, and sometimes, dogs can resemble each other. A custom embroidered collar makes your dog memorable. Her name is front and center, and the collar’s fun pattern is instantly eye-catching. This will make it easier for kennel staff to quickly distinguish between your dog and her doppelganger.
Use an embroidered dog collar while hiking or camping
If you’re in the great outdoors with your dog, a custom embroidered collar is a must for your pup. If you are walking through dense foliage and your dog has a standard, dangling tag, it’s possible he might get hung up in a bush and either get stuck and panic, causing injury. Or he might get stuck and panic, ripping off the tag and losing it on a trail. You can eliminate the danger of dangling pieces by removing the tags, but what if your dog gets away?
This is why a custom embroidered collar is so great for any outdoor adventure. A collar without things dangling from it is less likely to get stuck. If your information is embroidered on it, you can rest easy knowing that your information is clearly visible should your dog get away from you on the trails.
Use an embroidered dog collar with a dog sitter
It’s a scary thought, but what if your dog has an emergency medical situation while you're gone? A professional pet sitter will certainly have all of your dog’s (and your) pertinent information. But what if you had your parents or a friend watching the dog? You hope they’d keep a cool head in an emergency, but it’s best to be prepared. If your dog has medical conditions that you have engraved on the collar hardware, then your pet’s caregiver has easy access to this information if they can’t get ahold of you. This is especially important if your dog needs a trip to the emergency vet where your dog’s information may not be kept on file.
Use an embroidered dog collar while at an AirBnb
You don’t want to take chances with your dog pulling an escape act while you’re on vacation. Help your dog return to you more easily with a custom embroidered dog collar. Even if your dog somehow manages to lose her tag on her adventure, her collar is less likely to fall off. This means your phone number will still be on your dog and easy to find. And a dog with identification is much more likely to make it back home!
What Should You Put On Your Dog’s Collar?
With a Duke & Fox custom embroidered collar, you have plenty of room to get all of the important details down. There is room on the collar itself for your name and phone number. For some people, this may be enough - especially if your dog is microchipped.
If you upgrade your hardware, you have 3 lines on the buckle that you can use. If your dog needs medication or has allergies or is in any way special needs, use these lines to record this information. If your dog does not have any special concerns, you can include your address, your town, or even your dog’s microchip number.
If you are investing in one important thing for your dog’s safety this Spring, make sure it’s the best quality.
