ID tags

So I happened to come across an interesting theory on pet ID tags, wondering what your guys thoughts are on it.

Basically they suggested to not put your dogs name on their tag because if they get lost the person who finds them may want to keep them or sell them and by providing their name is like giving them they “key” to your dog. Also, they won’t want to keep your dog if they think that it is going to be expensive to care for or has medical issues. They also, suggested putting two tags on their collar on separate rings so if one gets lost they have another.

This is the example they used....

Requires daily medication
Reward for safe return
Beloved family pet
Please call
Phone number

Seems a bit extreme to me but also kind of makes sense.

Thoughts?

I don't know about the name thing...

I always put "Reward" on my dogs' tags, because of course I'd pay a large reward. Given that both of my dogs' are microchipped in their breeder's names as well as my names, and Richter is also tattooed, I think there's a fairly good case to be made that they belong to me.

I do put a phone number, reward, sometimes I put microchipped...just depends. I guess I generally think people want to return a lost dog to their owner, for the most part. The likelihood of there being someone trying to keep them just seems...remote.

My dogs' tags are simple stainless steel shapes with their name, microchipped and reward on one side, and my name, home phone number, and cell phone number on the other. They wear their ID tag, rabies tag, and microchip tags. We don't have a license here, so they don't have that. They are also tattooed and microchipped. Their leash is attached to a separate martingale collar, never their regular collar with the tags on it.

Our Dobes are rough on ID tags. The engraved Stainless Steel (SS) tags hold up the best.
We have this SS Tag for our Dobes for Pet ID#:



Like in Rosemary's area, our city no longer requires Pet Licenses, just Rabies shots and Chipping/Registration of pets. We use Home Again chip registration w/no subscription. Many owners don't realize that subscription services were added several years ago for "Premium" or "Extra" pet finding features by many of these Pet ID vendors. However, most were sold to us as "Lifetime" chip registrations and still maintain database info without subscription.

Compared to other Pet ID vendors, I have found Home Again has best online management of Pet information database, even when not subscribing to their Premium services. I update Rabies tag numbers & any changed info annually in database.

Another useful feature I just found out was that one can re-register another vendor's chip ID into Home Again. I did this with Spock, who originally had Avid chip ID. I wasn't able to manage his registration info online with Avid, unless premium subscription was purchased. So, after talking to Home Again CS, was able to register his Avid chip # with Home Again. So now, I have all three dogs under same registration, with good online access.

Here is good website for looking up your pet chip ID #'s to verify:

I put "reward" on my dogs' tags instead of their name. If I were putting up "lost dog" notices, I'd include the name because it would help someone who sees your dog to get him to come to them. But if they're close enough to read the tag they've caught him already, and they don't really need his name. Just maybe an incentive to keep looking for his owner.

We put cell phone numbers on the tag if we're traveling so someone can reach us no matter where we are. (Otherwise, I use my land line number, because I'm more likely to pick up a message there--I'm an old fuddy-duddy) If we're going to stay for a few weeks at our destination, we'll get another tag with the new address (or maybe a relative's address) on the tag. Anything to make sure that we're as easy to reach as possible.

Following on spockdad's post, several years ago, I registered See-See's 24PetWatch chip with PetLink, which is who everyone else's chips are through. The dog's chips were also listed with the AKC's microchip program as part of their PAL and Canine Partners Listing.

The biggest thing about microchips is that people need to understand that the chips need to be registered, and your contact info kept up to date. Also, they don't work like a GPS beacon to find where you lost pet is, as they don't emit a signal. And yes, I've had to actually explain the last bit to people.

I don't really like tags. I'd be in **** if I ever moved somewhere that required a license tag to actually be displayed on the collar. But a collar plate with "Reward - Microchipped" and my phone number is my plan. Neither of my dogs have ever cared about strangers regardless of their names being used. Unless it was a kid. My old mix would have sold my soul for attention from anyone under the age of 12.

My dogs don't wear tags at all - they are all microchipped. I keep their rabies, dog license, and chip tag all on a carabiner clip which is attached to the outside of a cabinet in my front office.... which is near the front door.

My dogs don’t wear collars , unless we leave the house...then they have the standard, name, phone, reward and their county license.

I like to think people are generally decent and would do anything to return a lost dog, just height it was kind of a interesting thought.

Yeah...

McCoy and The Sheriff roll naked. Bandanas if I want a "handle". LOL

When they are allowed to run free, like at our cabin, their leather collars have:

- A name tag w/our contact info
- A current Rabies vaccination tag
- A chip tag with the registered #
- A light for evenings
- Local county registration tags.

McCoy has not had his collar on in about a year. And he won't until we are in Montana and he is off leash for a few weeks,

He is never off leash in public and our yard is secure. Plus.. he is never more than 5 feet from me. LOL

If he was less under my immediate control, he would always wear his collar with all the info listed above.

My dogs don't wear collars in ther house or in their yard. The cats don't wear collars at all. But they are all microchipped (even though the cats are inside only) and the chip information is up to date but over the many years and many Dobermans I've never lost one that needed to be returned by a total stranger. In fact most people don't even want to see my Dobes closer than maybe across the street.

All the dogs have a binder with information about them and their various tags are there as are the records of their chip numbers--I could prove pretty easily that a dog was mine.

John, while on this subject have you seen these pet glow collars? We take them up to the Yellowstone property for the dogs. It gets so dark up there and quickly so we put
them on the Dobermans in the evening. Not sure that link will attach, but Duluth Trading sells them as I am sure others, but have never seen them any place else.
I never let dogs wear collars at home because of the chance another will grab it in rough play and choke the other.

Yeah, Bonnie, I was looking at them just the other day. Once McCoy's current light goes dark, I will consider one.

And yes, they are absolutely invaluable at night in our neck of God's country. We also put one on The Sheriff. But use a different color.

It's pretty neat to see 2 disembodied lights bouncing around in the pitch black. LOL

John - it really is! We have the 3 different colors. You can set it on blinking or solid light. I like them because if they snagged on a tree or another dog grabbed them they would release.
Plus they are just fun. I told my family I was going to get one for each of us, lol.

You can order custom embroidered snap collars on amazon for about $10 and put "reward + phone #" on there. They are a good idea for traveling at least. All of mine are chipped so I don't think it's all that necessary.

I think tags are fun and functional, but to be honest Newton doesn't wear them all the time. He's chipped so if anything goes awry, I'm hoping we're covered.

Here are a few of his. I typically put his name, our phone number and chipped on the back (if I need space I do leave his name off).

My biggest fear is that if one of my dogs got loose, no one would be brave enough to go up to them, even though we all know most of these guys are big babies.

Reminds me of a story, I’m at the pet store and a child, maybe 8 or 9 wanted to pet Sully, which I allowed. Sully is being a very good boy, calm and enjoying the attention very much. A lady in the store said to the mother that she shouldn’t allow her child anywhere near my dog. I asked her why she thought that, she explained that she works in rescue and out of all of the different breeds, Dobermans are the one breed she doesn’t t trust and they are extremely dangerous. I told her that since she worked in rescue she should be able to recognize that my dog was very relaxed and comfortable with the situation. She said they can snap at any moment and attack out of no where, I can see the mother is now uncomfortable so I called Sully to my side. She continues to say that there is a house in her neighborhood that has two of the meanest most vicious dogs she’s ever see and she doesn’t even walk down that street because she’s afraid they are going to jump the fence and attack her. Where we live, Dobermans are not very popular, so I asked her what subdivision, lo and behold it’s MY sub! So I preceded to tell her that’s where I live and she must be referring to my man eating vicious dogs (Sully is now calmly laying at my feet), but Anyone that knows anything about dogs knows that they bark at people who are walking down the street, I assure the mother that my dog is not mean or vicious and thank the boy for politely asking to pet him and we walk out in a perfect competition heel.

I found out later who she was, she has a Great Pyrenees, who she runs off leashes by driving her golf cart through the subdivision,her dog has also gotten loose on several occasions and I returned her cats collar that I found in my front flower garden. Seriously can’t make this **** up !

Unfortunately there are people who will keep your fur baby if lost. For years my dogs have worn brass tags that have a fake name and my cell number on them plus “daily medication needed” and “reward if found.”

I make tear away collars out of nylon thread and parachute cord. My boy always wears a tag even though he is chipped. Sometimes he will lose his collar and tag running through the brush but it is much better than getting choked on a leather or nylon collar.
