A couple weeks ago we received an email from a new company that specializes in luxury pet tags, and when they wanted to send us one for Bubbs to review before their launch this month at Pet Fashion Week…well, lets just say we had to pick our jaws off the floor! We were so thrilled and checked the mailbox EVERY DAY anticipating it’s arrival, and when it arrived, we were nothing short of speechless.
First, let me first explain to you a little bit about how things work around here. Anytime a company contacts us we immediately head over to their website and check it out. We look around, see what kind of products they offer, is it modern, unique, and easy to navigate, etc. First impressions are everything, after all. From there we’ll assess if you, your company, and your product(s) are a fit for our blog. If so, we try our hardetst to get back to you as promptly as we can to discuss any further details.
Something else we pay attention to is how well a company communicates, since most bloggers communicate mainly through email exchanges, and not verbally. It’s a HUGE key to getting featured by us. We receive 100s of emails a day, are busy researching and finding great dog things for you, but are currently very limited with the time we get to spend here. If you’d like to be featured on the blog, be sure to be thorough, explain what you want, how you think WE can help you, and why we should work together, and you’ll stay on top.
Until things change, we are forced to be pretty selective when it comes to choosing companies we want to work with, and if that harms how quickly we climb the ‘Dog Blog’ ranks…so be it. We’d much rather stick to our motto, “…to bring you and your dog THE BEST OF THE BEST…” from the very beginning, until the very end.
Thus, enters Wags & Tags™ and their extraordinary pet tags.
The first email from Wags & Tags™ quickly explained who they were, what they did, what they offered, and how they wanted to work with us. Straight to the point. +1!
After reading the email, I headed over to their website and was certainly intrigued. Their website was modern and easy to navigate. Next, to check out their product…these ‘luxury pet tags’, so I headed over to the ‘Pet Tags’ page and was immediately blown away. I couldn’t believe how truly luxury these tags looked! What was even more unbelievable was they wanted to work with Bubbs and I! +Gazillion!
‘Bubbs’ new bling from the Wags & Tags™ Bowl Me Over™ collection!’
As soon as I saw these gorgeous tags online, I instantly wanted to see and touch one in person, and you most likely will too. Not only are they quality, unique, modern, and spectacular collar-wear for your dog, but are designed for extreme durabilty and can be worn by the most active dogs without worry!
Wags & Tags™ was inspired by the owner’s Golden Retriever, Jessie. Yes, inspired by a bouncy, lovable, active Golden Retriever, and not a purse-toting Yorkie! (Not that there is anything wrong about toting around your Yorkie, of course!) These prestigious tags were MEANT to get dirty, roll around, go for a run through the woods, and take a dip in the lake. Now, with Wags & Tags, the most active dogs can have their prissy bling jewelry too!
In addition to the beauty and glamour of the fine jewelry tags, they also come with extensive functionality testing provided by Jessie, a gorgeous golden retriever owned by Wags & Tags founder, Sandy. After three years of extensive swimming and racing through the woods, Jessie proved that the tags can withstand all the fun of any active and rambunctious pooch.
Now, I’m sure you’re waiting to see what Bubbs thought of his new bling, but FIRST I wanted to show you the before picture. Before he got the chance to be the proud owner of a Bowl Me Over™ tag from Wags & Tags™ he was the proud owner of his previous year’s rabies tag, this year’s rabies tag, and a Petsmart machine-engraved, gold, bone-shaped, name tag.
Here’s the before…
‘Bubbs: The Ordinary Chi’
Bubbs’ new luxury tag was selected by Wags & Tags™, and certainly didn’t disappoint. Actually, it’s exactly what we would have designed ourselves! We received a sterling silver Bowl Me Over™ tag that features a silver bone inlay. The entire tag is sterling silver except for the stainless steel plate ideal for engraving on the back, and the bail at the top. His name and phone # were deeply engraved with a laser into the stainless steel plate to ensure that it won’t rub off, and it holds tight onto his collar with the stainless steel bail and a double split ring.
(photoshopped out my # for security reasons)
Tags are available in three sizes: small, medium, large and come with the ability to be customized by adding up to two lines of text. There are 4 bone inlay designs available to choose from: diamond, cubic zirconia, gold, or silver!
Even the packaging it arrives in is something you’d receive from your high-end jeweler! The tag is contained in a beautifully designed, sturdy brown/orange jewelry box, and safe from any scratches and scuffs inside an extremely soft draw-string pouch!
PLUS, they design these amazing tags for us two-legged humans too! Their Owner Pendants are just as amazing, and we’re definitely going to get one soon enough!
Okay, okay…I know you’ve been waiting to see what Bubbs thought of his new bling. Be forewarned, he’s no longer Bubbs: The Ordinary Chi…but…
…Bubbs: The Snooty-Patooty Chi!
He’s been able to successfully wear the tag without incident (falling off, snagging, etc.) for a week now, and I feel fully confident in reviewing our Wags & Tags™ Bowl Me Over™ tag.
