Jingle No More

I decided to be legal and get my dogs their rabies shots and licenses. When I got them home and put them on the dogs this is what I heard....jingle, jingle, and night. It was making me crazy! So I started searching for "dog tag silencers." I found two basic types. One was a little silicone bumper that goes around the tag. The problem with this is you have to get one that is the right shape for your dogs tags. The rabies tag is a heart, so no problem there. The license is shaped like a little VW Bug. Big problem finding that one! The second option is a pouch that goes over the tag. This seemed like a good idea until I saw the price. $10 plus shipping! Per dog! Ouch. For a little pouch of neoprene?

So, I came up with my own solution....Balloons! I slipped a balloon over the two tags. Now my sweet pups are blissfully quiet! She is not one to chew on her tags or collar (or anything else for that matter), so I don't worry about her ingesting the balloon. If your dog tends to chew, you may want to reevaluate if this is a good idea for you!

  1. Awwww! She's a cutie! I keep miss raven's collar off her when she is in the house. It was irritating her neck. Whenever we go out, though, she gets her necklace on. She doesn't need a license, only a rabies tag, which I am thankful for, because I don't think she would be as well behaved with the no-chewing as your little sweetie. :)
