Do Not Disturb

No matter how much we love our pets, the jingle of their tags can drive us crazy. FreezeTag is a pet tag silencer that’s practically indestructible, easy to use, and helps keep you sane. Founder Jennie Posthumus was inspired to create FreezeTag by a tagless Great Dane wandering alongside the road. With no identifying info to go on, reuniting him with his family was much harder than it should have been. The ordeal led her to a realization—many people remove their pets’ tags because they’re noisy. With help from industrial engineer Dan Blum, they created a clasp that holds up to four tags in place without jingling. The Made in the USA design is waterproof, resists smells, and won’t catch on things like standard tag holders do. Putting your pet’s tags in the FreezeTag holder is easy. Pull the rubber stopper off, then unscrew the nut. Add the tags and replace the nut snugly—tight enough to prevent jingle, but loose enough to fan the tags out. Hook it through your pet’s collar ring and replace the stopper. Your pet is properly ID’d, which gives you peace of mind. And the tags are silenced, which gives you peace and quiet.

    Hi Jennifer-Wow! I love this! I have three dogs, all rescues, and I usually have one foster dog at any given time. Between their city license tags, their id tags, their microchip tags, and their rescue tags, we're a hot mess of jingles whenever we are walking (a lot!). I usually buy those plastic tag protectors that go around the outside of the tag but they don't last that long. Your tag silencer looks to be a great product. I'll be ordering soon! Great idea!!!

    I love the idea of this! Does the cap snap and lock into place after you put it on the collar? I'm afraid of loosing the tags if it comes unhooked.

    @Susan Yes, tags are very secure. The cap snaps down very securely into place and you need a human to remove it. This was probably the most important feature we tested when designing and creating the FreezeTag. We spent months perfecting it to ensure that tags are truly secure. Just to share a story with you, a customer called us to thank us for creating the FreezeTag because her two Great Danes tug on her Huskie's collar and tags when they play and the FreezeTag is the only solution that has stayed secure for her dogs!

    Hi Jennifer - seems like a great idea. I have 2 rescued toy poodles. Jack, the little boy, like to chew on his tags. They have become unrecognizable. Would your product withstand being chewed and if so would it protect the tags?

  • Jennifer

    @Janet Wow! He is determined :) The FreezeTag is really tough, made from the same stuff that is in your car engine mount. It also holds the tags very close to the collar unlike split-rings that often hang far down, so it would be a solid challenge for Jack to chew on his tags when using a FreezeTag.

    I'm confused. Why all these metal tags in the first place?? (I live in Israel, where for years now, all that is necessary is a microchip. I clip a plastic tag w name & tel to the collar, for convenience, just in case.)

    @RU Vets and shelters can scan for chips, but collar tags are still the fastest way for someone to reach you in the event that they find your lost pet. Microchips are important but personalized ID tags that contain contact information for the dog owner can help assure lost animals are quickly reunited with their families. In the US, pets also wear Rabies tag which shows that they are up to date on their shots. It is required by law in some states. Some states also require a tag to indicate that your dog is approved to be off leash at dog parks.

    All of this data - contact info, rabies vaccinations, etc - is immediately available to any & all vets throughout the country via scanner. Also to the municipal "dog-catchers" btw, so that they can fine negligent owners! The system has really made metal tags obsolete. (I've saved my dog's tags -from our time both here & in the US - just for sentimental reasons...)

    @RU Yes, very ture! Microchips are wonderful and recommended :) I found a lost dog the other day and was able to call the owner and get the dog home immediately. It only lived a block away. Much easier and faster than trying to get the dog down to the vet to scan for a microchip. But yes, I microchipped my dog, too! It's all important.

    What prevents the screw from loosening eventually? Don't the multiple tags still jingle against one another?

    Hi Sandra, if put on correctly, the nut shouldn't spin so the screw shouldn't loosen. That is how the clasp was designed.

    Jennifer, great product...wish I had thought of this myself! I have nicknamed my Maltese mix "Jinglepuss" because of her 3 noisy ID tags whenever we take late-night walks. I just bought 3 tags (free shipping...great perk!) and will be sending your great Grommet to the informal dog play and e-info. group I organize in suburban Maryland (300+ members...NOT a Meetup.com group) since I always try to bring them the latest dog-friendly innovations. Thanks!
