We have a twofer for you this time around! I was asked by MiracleCorp if Jada and Bailey would like to test out a couple of Hamilton Pet collars and I had just ordered some tags from Jolly Awesome Pet Tags, so I decided to test both at once!
|Designing the tags|
I won a voucher for three tags in a giveaway from Peanut Butter and Whine. Now, these aren't your typical tags! They are made out of a thick plastic substrate that you can put your own design or picture on. Jolly Awesome Pet Tags claim to be resistant to scratches, UV damage, and even breaks. One of the best things about these tags is that it is noise-free! Goodbye rude awakenings at night!
The designing tools that the site gives you are a little hard to maneuver if you want a complex design like I was going for, so I decided to do all the designing in Microsoft Publisher and then paste it into the program.
As you can see my design came out just great! I was so excited to get the tags and they shipped very fast! The front of the tags are full color and the back is black and white. The one thing I wish is if they would throw in a couple of split rings to attach the tags. Now..onto the collars!
At first glance, these look like your typical adjustable nylon collars, but there are a couple of neat and nifty differences! First off, I LOVE this blue color! The little Hamilton logo on the plastic buckles is a nice touch and the buckles secure nicely to boot. Different colors have different colored "O" rings and this could be a downside if you change out tags often because it could scratch the paint.
You can see that adding a split ring (as carefully as I can) to the collar has scratched up the rings a bit, but you can't see it as well on the unpainted one. When adding the ring to the tags it became scratched up as well. I was a bit disappointed because of the scratch resistant claim and that these are meant to have split rings or something similar attached to them.
|Looking cute and adorable!|
The tags are 1"x 2" like a dog tag, which is a bit big for 9 pound Bailey here. Thankfully I did a little trick where you just hook the split ring onto the collar itself so tags won't dangle too low.

I recently started walking around the neighborhood with the girls and Jada is still quite the puller. She is doing a lot better, but let's just say I am very impressed at the durability of the collars. I felt like I had better control with this collar than previous ones, maybe because the pulling tension is spread out better.

Jolly Awesome Pet Tags
In a nutshell...
- Made out of a plastic substrate
- "noise-free" and very durable
- Can design it as you like with your own picture
- $16.96 for 3 tags on their website
- My dogs were able to provide some obvious wear on the tags after a few weeks.
I think if you have an indoor dog or one that doesn't free roam outside you wouldn't have as much wear.This is a great product and love that I can put whatever design I want on it. There are so many uses!
