I can honestly say that I have found one of the most awesome Dog Tag sites. Dog Tag Art offers TONS of great dog tags perfect for your 4 legged baby! Doesn't matter if you have a dog or cat, Dog Tag Art has you covered.
Dog Tag Art dog tags are made with recycled Steel Core so basically the dog tags are going to stand up to anything you can throw at it. I know my dogs love to chew, having a dog tag that can withstand THEIR wear and tear is great news to me! Here's a little about Dog Tag Art that I thought you might be interested in hearing & reading.
The company was started by Jack Carrier to solve a problem. The spark for his idea can be attributed to his old Chocolate Lab that is persistent in one thing: wandering off. One evening Maggie wondered off with out-dated tags that resulted in a complicated web of phone calls and worry before she was finally returned. Jack thought "there has to be a better way for a finder to get in contact with me, WITHOUT it depending on a phone number." Jack was traveling a lot which meant Maggie would be unprotected for long stretches of time, which was dangerous. That problem kicked off the idea and resulted in this company.
The solution to that problem was launched in May of 2010. "Virtual Leash" solves the problem by allowing pet finders to use a pet's unique website to contact MANY people INSTANTLY and simultaneously using voice (robo-call), text messages, email, and Twitter. It will also show any address you choose on a Google Map. It lets finders see important info about your pet immediately.
While Virtual Leash was in development, Dog Tag Art was started as a side project and grew in it's own right to become a community built around fun, art, our beloved pets, and giving back to Humane Societies. It continues to grow and attract more awesome artists and user-submitted "super-model" pet photos.
Scott Freshwater provided the seed funding and valuable business coaching. Soon after Jack moved into a Small Business Incubator at AB Tech College near Asheville, North Carolina where the company still resides. In August 2009, Jack won a "Technology Business Plan Competition" that was designed to give a boost to a company nearly "ready for production." A panel of judges chose Jack's plan and presentation out of 14 other businesses and granted the business $25,000.
In December of 2009 Jack was joined by Russell Barker, an operations manager with over 10 years experience in the e-commerce field, who saw great potential in Dog Tag Art. Russ oversees the production line and is responsible for getting beautiful tags made and into customer's mail boxes. He is also very hands-on with many projects within the company and contributes weekly informational blog articles to the site.
The Virtual Leash from what I read sounds like a life saver to dogs and their families. My dog Sissy tries to escape ALL the time. If you open the front door you better have her in your eye view because she is going to run out right under your feet! And if you think you can catch her, you're out of your mind! When she gets out she is a BUTT to get back in. She may be small, but OMGosh is she fast! The Virtual Leash is perfect for the little turd!
