Dog id tags for pets are an essential and very cheap form of dog identification, although many of today’s dog or pet owners don’t even use dog tags, it is your best chance of never losing your dog or quickly finding your dog in an emergency.
Dog Id tags are essential in many occasions and situations that may never have thought of before it happens. A simple loud noise or bang, unfamiliar face, or a cat the other side of the street in your neighborhood is enough to scare many dogs into fleeing for safety, and getting lost in or around your neighborhood.
There aren’t any cures or training techniques that can help in these situations, so a simple, inexpensive dog tag might be all that stands between having a good friend for life and losing a cute beloved puppy in the first weeks or receiving them.
Dog collars and id tags are all over places that have anything to do with pets and animals, and they are available in either a customized collar with the details of your home printed on or a small metal or plastic plate showing your home details. All you have to do is let them know what you want to be printed and they print it for you, so it’s ready to use for as little as $5 – $6.
As for the information on the dog id tag, it should be a clear and visible as you can make it ensure anyone finding your dog will see it straight away.
There are different preferences when it comes to what should be written on your dog ID tag, and different trainers prefer different tag information, but as a general rule, you should include pet’s name, owner’s name, address, city, state, zip code, and phone numbers, and then maybe a reward incentive, medical or veterinarian information.
On the whole, if you fail to give your dog a tag you risk losing them forever and for $5 – $6 I think it’s a really good price to pay for your dog’s safety and well-being.
