You can personalise your Dog Tag print with a short dedication (up to 10 words).
This is written by hand, in pencil, below the dog tag image and above the signature (like the example in the picture for Benson the Labrador).

In the late 1980s The Royal Guide Dog Association of Australia received a request from a blind lady in Hawaii who needed a guide dog that would not aggravate her husband’s allergies. The request was given to a man called Wally Conron who tried in vain to train 33 different poodles as guide dogs but, despite being working dogs, none of them made the grade. In desperation he crossed his best Labrador bitch with a Standard Poodle. Of the three puppies, one of them did not trigger an allergic reaction in the blind lady’s husband and so the Labradoodle was born.
Today Labradoodles are both excellent therapy and assistance dogs and enormously popular family pets. They love to work and are eager to please. They are true companion dogs and thrive best with their people, delighting in being stroked and petted. Many of them are pretty smart and enjoy outwitting their owners - just for fun!
I make custom vintage style frames for my prints. Whenever possible I use reclaimed wood and each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina.
Currently frames are available in reclaimed pine, hand-painted in Old White with a chalky matt finish. Frames are approximately 38 cms (15”) square and are fitted with crystal clear acrylic ‘glass’. They come ready to hang.
These prints also fit very nicely into standard frames, such as the Ikea Ribba 52x52 cm square frame, using the included matt/mount of 29x29 cms.
