Love me some tags! Red Dingo pet ID tags review
Red Dingo has come a long way since Krazy For Pets started carrying their ID tags in 2009. They only offered 24 designs of the enamel ID tags with 5 to 6 different colors at the time. If you look at the dog ID tags they are offering now, the options are almost double of what they used to offer back then. With this tremendous growth, the quality of the Red Dingo tags has never gone down or been compromised. This is why everyone at Krazy For Pets loves their ID tags so much, especially the enamel ID tags.
These ID tags are so beautiful and last a long time. They are made of solid stainless steel which will never rust or corrode. Although the surface of the tag might get scratched or worn out by a daily use, the text remains legible and the enamel is never faded. If you can only buy only one tag for your dog, make it the Red Dingo ID tag. The ID tags are flat on the back side which is used for engraving. The front of the tag has an insignificant embossed edge for smoothness. The design on the tag is filled with colored enamel. Most of them have only one color but more and more, you will see multi-colored tags in their collections.

At the time of this review, the Red Dingo offers 63 designs and 26 of them are available in 11 colors. All of the enamel and glitter ID tags come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. A small tag is 20 millimeter or 0.8 inches wide. It weighs 7 grams (0.24 ounce), just a tad smaller than a quarter coin but heavier in weight. You can add up to 3 lines of text with 12 spaces limit on each line. White spaces are included but the tag looks better with 2 lines of text.
A medium tag is 30 millimeter or 1.2 inches wide and it weighs 16.1 grams (0.6 ounces). It can hold up to 5 lines of text with 16 spaces limit on each line and yes, white spaces are included. It is big enough to hold a pet name, 2 phone numbers, and a short address. A medium size tag is great for 30 lbs. or higher weight dog. It is heavy for toy and small dog breeds.

A large tag is 38 millimeters or 1.5 inches wide. It weighs 24.7 grams (0.9 ounces) which is quite heavy and perhaps too large for some medium size dog breeds. It can hold up to 6 lines of text with 18 spaces limit on each line, white spaces are included. Although you have a lot of space to work with, it's best not to engrave all of your information on your dog's ID tag for safety reasons.

It is rare that customers don't want any engraving with their tags. However, if you're like the majority of our customers, you will be happy to know that engraving is free. Moreover, if the engraved text is faded or worn out, the Red Dingo offers a lifetime warranty. All you need to do is to send them pictures of both sides of your dog's tags. You can find more information on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
