I love these pugs. If you have been following us for long, you probably recognize Zoe, Zack and their little sis Zelda Pug. They are probably 3 of our biggest cheerleaders, they’ve been wearing Mimi Green almost exclusively for the past 4 years!
They belong to my friend Tracy, she says they are a pug gang but I’m not too scared 😉 Although, anytime someone is missing an eye I gotta wonder what happened to the other guy in the fight! The missing eye defiantly makes Zoe look mysterious 😉
What I love about these personalized collars is that there is no need for noisy jingling tags, but Tracy likes the look of their handmade tags so these pugs wear both.
I know it must be hard to choose between the plastic and metal engraved buckle collars, so I thought I’d put together a list about each of their qualities to help.
PLASTIC ENGRAVED PERSONALIZED DOG COLLAR BUCKLE:
- The plastic buckle is contoured, the metal buckle is not. (This is mainly why the Carlson Pugs are wearing the plastic)
- I like the look of the white engraving on the black buckle, it is really different and super good looking.
- The metal buckle feels really special. It weighs the same amount as the plastic buckle, but it feels more substantial.
- I like that the engraving on the metal buckle looks like the engraving on a dog Id tag. It just makes sense.
I think that either way you can’t go wrong. They are both really wonderful buckles and they are both super strong (which is very important in a dog collar buckle). My dogs are currently using the plastic buckles and we love them. I also have an engraved plastic buckle on my camera strap (pictures coming very soon — it looks SO cool!) with my named engraved. Tracy’s dad came up with that idea — brilliant, right!? I feel so happy every time I see my buckle with MY name on it! I imagine that my dogs feel the same way about their engraved buckles (well they would if they could read right!)
