This is a minor problem, but Gus gets this dark gray stain on his fur from where his tags rub against him. It bugs me because his chest is so white and handsome otherwise! Anyone have a solution for this?

A dip in the pool will fix it :) seriously we did it multiple times.
Check out WWW.Boomerangtags.com they have some pretty nice tags that slide onto the collar and won't discolor his fur.
Danielle beat me to it! Boomerangtags are great!
Are the tags metal?...metal could do that. Plastic may be an option. If metal, perhaps dog tag silencers...something like on this site http://www.phloyds.com/pettag/silencers.html
should prevent the edges from rubbing.
I think a previous post also mentioned using clear nail polish to keep them from staining. I will try that and post the results. Haven't had a problem with the dark color from Lucy's tag yet though.
I took Roscoe's collar off for a bath a couple of weeks ago, and he has a nice black ring on his white fur where the collar was. How chic.
My dog Radar has the same problem on his white neck - totally gray and terrible looking.

Unfortunately the BoomerangTags are not able to replace the required town dog license tag and that has to be replaced every year - it seems the newer the license the darker the gray. Washing the fur helps but only for a week or so.
Yes, that's my problem too. I don't want to let him go without his license on just in case something were to happen. Maybe I'll try the nail polish suggestion!
Thanks for the suggestions! Since Gus doesn't like to swim :( I'll give the boomerang tags a try.
SCOTCH TAPE. NEEDS TO BE RE APPLIED OCCASIONALLY BUT HELPS WITH DISCOLORING AND THE CLANGING NOISE ...BUT SOMETIMES I LIKE TO HEAR WHERE THEY ARE.........HOPE THIS HELPS.
The clear nail polish idea works GREAT!

(I used it with my own cheap costume jewelry, too... to keep them from discoloring my skin! LOL!)
neeka has it too but it wont wash off :(
