Step 1: Materials

Existing dog tag
Scotch Tape
Permanent Marker

Step 2: Adding Information

Use the permanent marker on the back of tag  to write new information. I also did an arrow in the front to refer someone to the back. On my dog's current tag, the line i crossed off in the front I turned into an arrow, for a larger visible reference.

Step 3: Sealing It

Place tape over the written information and trim if needed. The tape should tear easily on the edges,taking the shape of the tag.

Step 4: Place on Pet and Enjoy!

Now you have peace of mind and a quick fix until you get a new tag!
