I registered my dog when I first got her to start transitioning her to take my 17 year old service dog place. I like the quality of your products. I ordered new ID tags with an updated picture since she is 5 now.

After training my dog to alert me any diabetic changes this was the last step I needed. I’m looking forward to feeling safe knowing I have her with me in case of any emergencies.
