Ideas for Engraved Dog Tag Wording

A dog tag is the best way to identify your dog in case he goes missing. He may jump over a fence or break lose off his rope when you're not looking, and a dog tag supplies the finder with information to contact you to return your family pet. Pet tags are available at all pet stores and even some grocery and department stores.


Engrave the name your dog will respond to on the tag. This will help the finder when he is trying to assist the lost dog. You can put the complete name on the other side if you want the finder to be able to look up his paperwork to return your dog to you. Often engraving is charged per letter or word, so a shorter name would be cheaper and fit better on the tag as well.

Phone Number

Engrave the phone number on the second line because it is the best way to get in touch with a person. Use an area code followed by the number so people know it is the phone number to reach you at. For example: 252-312-4536.


Include a brief address on the tag on the third line if you wish. Keep it short, including the street name and house number only, but if you have room include the city as well. If the address is on the tag, people may bring the dog back to your house instead of calling.

Your Name

On the last line you can include your name so people know whom to contact, instead of listing your address. You could also use this line for e-mail if that is an easier way to contact you. Consider what options work best for you and will help your dog find its way home.
