Hi, I’m Cristen and the maker of Bad Tags. 


If you’ve ever been bored with the big box selection of tags or wanted a tag as unique as your pet, then you’ve come to the right place. I created Bad Tags just for you! 


As a dog mom to 4, I wanted my pups to have tags that expressed their goofy personalities. I also wanted colorful tags to match their ever changing wardrobe of collars. Unable to find anything like this, I set out to design and create my own line of tags in 2014.  


One of my first tags was for my beloved bulldog Moose, who literally couldn't stop licking. He liked toes, elbows, the cat. His first tag read "Can't Control My Licker". His big brother Napoleon was 120lbs and awkward as heck. His first tag read "I'm The Reason We Can't Have Nice Things". My husband seeing these early tags commented how bad they were (bad as in hilariously funny/true) and it stuck. Bad Tags. 


I continue to receive inspiration from my own dogs, and fueled with a lot of coffee, I run Bad Tags full time. Each and every tag ordered is created by me with the utmost care and attention to detail. There is no hired help. So when you purchase from Bad Tags, you are supporting a small dream (not a CEO's third vacation home).
