The noise of North's tags can cause the downstairs dogs to run to the door and begin barking . . . before we even make it off the landing! Because my pup trots in a harness, I only snap it on when it's walk time. If not, he would make quite the racket with his Good Boy tag, ID tag, rabies tag, and HomeAgain microchip tag all clanging together. For those with pals that sport their tags 24/7, learn about possible solutions to the dangling jangling when you read more.
If you're a light sleeper (or your home includes a lil one), consider purchasing a pet tag silencer. The Quiet Spot can hold multiple tags to prevent noise (as well as tarnish and wear) . . . and even can work to hold your Nike + iPod transmitter on a non-Nike shoe! In addition to those tag silencers made out of soft materials, there are rubbery versions that fit individual tags, even bone-shaped ones. Or, if you're feeling D.I.Y., grab some fabric scraps and sewing materials, and stitch up your very own!
