MODPawed Handcrafted Pet ID Tags #Review


Having an identification tag for your pet is part of being a responsible pet owner. There are so many options to ID your pet, but none quite as classic and easily identifiable as the dog tag. Having a chihuahua (or two) makes finding a small enough dog tag a bit difficult though. In the past we've found small tags but once they're on a ring and hanging from a collar, one of the chi's is tripping over it or walking like a constipated duck to avoid tripping over it. It's just a bother and we end up not using a tag at all.


Recently, I came across ModPawed on Etsy and was in complete awe over the detail and originality of their pet tags. ModPawed is featured in Modern Dog magazine, has been featured in Bark Magazine, and has been seen on Cake Boss and The Merilyn Denis Show. All of their tags are handmade in California, and can be shipped worldwide. I counted over 150 unique designs on their Etsy page, and even if one of those are exactly what you have in mind, they will work with you on custom orders too! {P.S. This is an AWESOME idea for the holidays! Not just a special tag for a dog or cat, but think of unique necklace or bracelet charms for your fellow human companions, or another special animal in your life.}

We received one tag for each of the chi's. Ocean got The Roxy and Venus got The Comet. Please note: as much as I love you all, I have blurred out my cell phone number from the girls' tags. I just don't trust the creepers out floating around the interweb enough to post it on my blog lol. Thanks for understanding!

The Roxy is a 3/4" copper tag:

I found our MODPawed tags to be beautiful, classy, and durable. I love their customization as well as their extensive design offerings. My heart about melted when I saw The Comet for the first time. How fitting for a dog named Venus, don't you think? The Roxy looks so petite but the nice copper lets you feel that it will last. I found it to be the absolute perfect size for Ocean, and looked beautiful with her coloring. The only thing they need now are new fancy collars! Hmm... I see another Christmas gift in their futures. Honestly though, I am so overjoyed that I came across MODPawed and had the pleasure of working with Leo. It's not often you find such detailed and beautiful handmade items!
