Dog tags can be annoying when you want a bit of peace and quiet, especially if you’re trying to sleep and the dog is near you scratching. If you’re in the middle of watching a film, that jingle can spoil your viewing every time your dog moves about. There are silent dog tags that can replace the standard tag and there is a fix you can use for your existing tag.
Slide On Dog Tag
You could try a slide on dog tag where the collar slides through. There won’t be any jingling noise with one of these tags.
A slide on dog tag is safer than a standard tag because it doesn’t have a split ring hanging down in the way.
Our dog managed to catch his dew claw in the split ring of his tag. Luckily I was at home to help him out. Since then his collar is removed whenever we have to go out as a safety precaution.

An easy fix to your dog’s existing tag is to use a silicone dog tag silencer. The tags pictured below come complete with glow in the dark silencers.
You can buy cheap silicone dog tag silencers on their own to fit over your dog’s tag.

A Rubber Band Quick Fix
As a quick fix, try using a rubber band by wrapping it around the jangling tags. This won’t last long though, so buying tag silencers would be a better option.
