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.

I haven’t received the items yet. But my self and my services dog will love being together all the time now. No worries of you can’t take your fur baby in wal-mart when you shop alone. Anxiety is no fun when you a attach in a store with lots of people and your by yourself.
