Another effective solution to silence dog tags, and prevent them from wearing off or tarnishing, are tag pouches. As the name implies, tag pouches are small bags made out of different materials and designed to contain the tags. They are meant to be attached to the collar to hold all the tags together in one pouch, which can be put on and removed as needed. If you feel crafty, you can make your own pouch by stitching some fabric together to make a pocket, inserting the tags and closing the pouch with strips of Velcro or snaps.
