To lose is dog is every furparent's nightmare. It can be extremely stressful for both pet and their owners. We all see it on our social media newsfeed - of dogs and cats getting lost. Some are found after a few days, some take months or even years. Sadly most just can't come back anymore. And this can be traumatising.
Once lost, these pooches are left to fend for themselves. They have to scavenge for food, brave the weather and face the danger of being a road hazard which might get them into accidents.
There are many ways to ensure your pet gets identified such as tracking devices and microchip among others. A pet tag is also considered one sure way to get them back to you. When people see them wearing a tag or id, people are less apprehensive to approach them, assuming they have owners and not at all aggressive. They are likely to get help and with clear details on their tags, you can be contacted easily.
Here are some things to consider when you get them their tags:
Quality of the material
Tags should be durable and high-quality so it won't fall off their collar. Be mindful of the noise of getting 2 or more id tags on one pooch. Jangling of id tags can eventually becomes annoying though a rubber around the tags will help.
Quality of engraving
Relevant details should be readable and engraved with the right depth so the details won't get scratched easily. Make sure to indicate your pet's name, your name & contact details.
Size and weight of the id tag
Choose the right fit for your pet. They should be able to carry it without a bother otherwise they will keep on trying to get it off their necks.
Pet id tags are not accessories, it is a necessity and should not be underestimated. Whether you're at home or out on your regular walks, you can never be too sure of the safety of your beloved pets. Give them the identification they need to survive if they happen to get lost.
