Have you heard of QALO before? QALO started out making silicon wedding bands, inspired by the belief that you should never have to choose between your own safety and comfort and showing your commitment to the one you love.
Today, they make a range of active lifestyle products, all purpose-designed to remove the barriers that get your way, and help you through life’s adventures. Because you should never have to compromise on the things that matter most. One of those things is silicone dog ID tags.
Having a new puppy meant that I needed to get her some identification, but I wasn’t sure what to get her. All I knew for sure is that I didn’t want anything that jingled. I vividly remember past pets having metal tags and how it drove me NUTS that every time they moved they made noise. Nope, not going that route for sure. So when I came across the silicone dog tags from QALO I had to check them out.
Did you know that not only can the jingling of a dog’s tag on their collar be a painful and irritating experience, it prohibits dogs from relying on their acute sense of hearing to experience the world around them? By treating your pup to a QALO dog ID tag, you improve their wellbeing and your peace of mind.
Their tags are made of 100% silicone, affixed with a .75″ split ring. And did I mention that they are super cute? They have so many options to match your lifestyle and your dog. They even have ones where you can get your dog’s breed on them. I decided to go with the floral options for my sweet little girl. I got two because I plan on using a hardness for our adventures, so I wanted to make sure that I had tags for that and her regular collar.
There is room on the front of the tag for the dog’s name and 4 lines worth on the back for contact information. I was able to fit my phone number, her microchip ID, and the website on the back of the tag. I love that I’m able to give anyone that may find my pup ALL the information to get her back to me. They are also really easy to get on the collar. I don’t know if their split ring is made of something magical, but I didn’t have to fight to get it on her collars.
My only wish was that the tags came in different sizes. Right now the tags are a little too big for my pup, but I know she will grow into them eventually. This doesn’t cause a problem, but on occasion, the size does bother her a little bit and she tries to “catch it.” It is actually kinda funny to watch, only because it is physically impossible for her to reach it until she figures out a way to take off her collar altogether.
