Dog Collar Laws

The main legal requirement of a dog collar is that it needs identification, a pet ID tag. In accordance with the Control of Dogs Order 1992, this needs to include the name and full address of the dog’s owner.

We have an awesome ID tag to compliment your dog's collar and comply with dog laws.... and yes it’s yellow!!

Any responsible dog owner should always make sure their dog is wearing an ID tag. Failure to comply could land you a very hefty fine of up to £5000.

We also have an awesome ID tag from Pawesome Pet Tags and yes they're yellow too!! 

These pawesome dog tags are easy to attach and clean. It never chips, it's scratch proof, waterproof, lightweight and it doesn’t fade just like our collars!

It is the most visible colour, making it easy to spot, even at a distance. But it’s also a vibrant and warm colour that reflects the love, dedication and bond you share with your anxious dog.

When your dog wears yellow, it's a clear visual sign that catches people’s eye and lets them know your reactive dog need's space.
