As you may have noticed, Canine Habits offers a wide selection and combination of tag connectors!
Several years ago I stopped using mini rings on my tags because of the number of replacements I was making because tags were falling off the larger ring. Customers stopped losing tags, but I started receiving new complaints. Despite explaining the decision to switch back to a single ring, I was told that the tags didn't hang as nicely.
My compromise is offering both options, as well as several other connector options.
They are the rings, hooks, clips, etc. that connect your tag to your dog's collar. Broken, bent, or improperly used connectors are the number 1 reason a pet's tag will go missing. Which makes choosing the right one very important!
Top row: 25mm brass ring, 19mm stainless ring, mini rings in brass and stainless
Middle: Locking S-biner, 1-inch nickel silver tag, regular S-biner
Bottom: 25mm zinc s-hook, 19mm brass s-hook
Brass is a much softer metal and therefore is much more likely to bend. If you have had issues with rings bending in the past, I don't recommend using brass connectors. The exception to this is using brass s-hooks or 19mm or 25mm brass rings attached directly to the tag. They are still softer than zinc and stainless, but they are still great options for people who want brass tags with matching hardware.
