What information needs to go on a dog tag?

Some people are of the opinion that if their dog is micro chipped, they do not require a dog tag with their contact details on it. This is incorrect, and you should always have a dog tag on your dogs collar even if they are micro chipped (which is a legal requirement).

There are also companies who run schemes where you pay a fee and if your dog goes missing, they will assist in finding your dog. usually you receive a tag to go on the dogs collar with the companies phone number and an ID code.

Even though it is possible for your dog to be reunited with you if found via such a system, the law still states that you must have a tag on your dogs collar with your name and address, ie you will have both tags on your dogs collar.
