Hendrix had fallen asleep on the vent, a smart dog, he knows where the cool air is coming from. Well, his 3 tags got stuck in the vent and when Hendrix moved his neck, the vent pulled up with him.
The second time he did it, he was walking around the house with a vent stuck to his neck! I admitt it was funny because he was just panting (so it sort of looked like he was laughing at how much of a good he looked like) but it's happened 4 times now! I'd hate for him to cut his neck on the vent. We've glued them down, but nope, those tags are like grippers!
Does anyone know if they make a dog collar that has a pocket for those? Someone suggested getting him a collar embordered with his name and our phone number, but we still need to display his rabbies tag and city tag.
|You could actually sew the tags right into the collar?|
|I've never seen one with pockets. But Willowsprite has a good suggestion. Maybe you could place the tags on the collar with tiny rivets or something similiar.|
|When I was a youngster, I wore a necklace with a stainless steel chain. I was at summer camp, and bent over to get a drink of water from a spigot they had set up upside as a fountain near the basketball courts. While I was drinking, the chain dangled around the spigot, and when I stood up...... There was almost no oes.org! (Well, ok, it wasn't that bad. The chain snapped after giving a pretty hard tug on the back of my neck, and I learned to never have a heavy-duty necklace.)
That said... the jingling of a collar drives me batty!
On one collar, we were actually able to tuck the tags in between the layers of the nylon, right where the webbing was folded over to attach to the clasp; also the tags still were attached to the ring. Hard to explain.
However, that was with one particular collar, and we just keep Mulligan's number of tags to 1 to avoid the jingling. Not much help. Sorry!
|Hmmmm, how about something plastic that would wrap around the tags.......do they still make a coin purse or some such that attaches to a key chain......or is a key holder? Wrap the tags inside the plastic and attache to collar.
On another list someone had their sheepdog stuck to the heater register....if the vent doesn't pull away, the dog could get burned or die stuck to the heat.
|I have put Tyler and Kiera's tags on a brass clip-on. This way you can put them on when needed or keep them on the leash. But if you do this, the suggestion of having the nylon collar that has name and phone number embroidered on it is perfect. You just never know when one of our sheepies might go visiting and it would be misunderstood as running away. Daisy did that recently and it was hell till we found her.|
|We take Pooh's collar off when he's in the house. Twice the tags got caught in the crate when he was younger and we heard what sounded like a screeching tire eminating from our puppy. So there was no collar while in the crate. Recently since he's been shaved, the collar is longer (less hair) and he's found a way to get it in his mouth--so it's around the back of his neck and in his mouth like a horse's bridal. So no more collar in the house.|
|I have seen tags that have slots in each end the collar is slipped thru and it lays flat against the collar|
|Here's a link where you can buy and embroidered collar.

My neighbor's miniature pinscher got his tags stuck in a old floor heating vent on the floor that was about his body size. He had red marks from the burns of the vent so they don't keep a collar on him in the house anymore.
|I've found that these days, a collar = mats. Now Clyde only wears a collar on walks or outings but never in the house or backyard.|
|This is a pretty cool idea... It also keeps the tags quiet.
It called a tag silencer and is probably too big to get caught
See the following link:
|Rather than trying something with the tags, would it be feasible to try covering the vent with something like the kind of screen used on screen doors? That way, the tags wouldn't get down in the vent openings and air could still pass through. Just an idea........|
|Thanks for everyones input!
We're going to go with the personalized colar and attach his tags on his leash. Hendrix is in our backyard a lot so I'd like to keep some form of ID on him "just in case."
|Well, there goes my chance to make a fortune, someone already has a sack for the dog tags, Question: why would you want to keep the tags quiet? I can tell which dog is coming down the hall by the way the tags knock together along with the gait.
I've got a dog nose in my arm pit..........I guess they want to eat....
|My dog's tail seems to be stuck on "vent" for the past couple of days.
|Nylon Balistic ones will create mats in the hair of our sheepies. When I adopted Tyler some 8+ years ago, he was a matted mess and the worst part being around his neck. He had on this grungy green nylon thing. I went to the pet store and bought him a rolled leather collar with brass fittings. I went to a local sailing shop and bought a hasp type thing that you would use to connect things, a closed loop on one side and a clasp on the other. I attached Tylers "jewelery" to the loop and use the clasp to connect it to his collar or leash when we walk. I have found that the rolled leather has never given him a matt. I bought one for Kiera, and for a while the dye would come off on her after a bath if she had any dampness left. But it "wears" out soon enough. So you might abandon the flat nylon for the rolled leather... My two cents....|
|Ewww Ron!!! lol
Pepsi too after getting to the Pork Ribs on the counter.
