With the arrival of a new puppy, it seemed only proper to treat each dog to a lovely new identity tag, but with so many lovely designs on the market which should we choose...
After a little searching for British made, quality tags we realised an old M&H stockist, Merry Dogs, actually made beautiful dog togs in a choice of sterling silver or brass, and a whole variety of original hand stamped designs.
We opted for 3 English sterling silver 1" tags, each personalised with our dogs name and symbol on the front and, contact number and 'I am chipped' on the reverse.
Each letter has been hand-stamped in their Yorkshire studio to give a deep and lasting impression. The wording is then darkened to create a lovely contrast with the silver.
These chunky, quality tags are hand-made items and do not resemble machine-made tags. Merry Dogs say they are hand-stamped using a hammer, and therefore slight maker's marks may be visible, and lettering may not be 100% straight-as-a-die, but is part of the charm of hand-made items using the crafting traditions of earlier times.
Each tag was supplied with a small silver-cleaning cloth, and gift wrapped in tissue and arrived in a taffeta gift bag.
We can't say just how pleased we were to receive our order which even exceeded expectations, and we can't recommend them highly enough!
