Whats on your dog tags? I was reading a topic on Dogster and some people don't put their dogs name on their dog tags in case someone tries to steal them and know their name.. What do you guys think? & Whats on your dog's tag?
I don't know if this is a bad idea, but I include his name, my cell, and my address on the tag. He also has his vet ID rabies tag, and a microchip. (Although all this is definitely over load considering he is a small Pomeranian and is never outside without me- ha!)
I have my dog's name and my house phone number on one side and her avid microchip info on the other. The reason I didn't put my cell phone number is because people can block out their phone number when calling to a cell phone, my home phone has private call blocking and call forwarding, in case I am waiting for a call. I figured, if Cookie ever got lost (G@d forbid) the last thing I would want to deal with is someone calling from a private number. I worry about people not having good intentions or playing around on the phone. Maybe I worry to much but that was my thinking when I ordered Cookie's tags . :)
mine dont wear tags. they are naked in the house and their going outside-to-play collars have an engraved nameplate with " HI! i'm snoopy (snowball) call my mom @ (my cell #) or scan my microchip!"
i have all their county, rabies, and chip tags on a ring a i carry when we go out. 5 seconds in tags turns them gray. and i hate the jingle. they wear their harnesses out on walks and such. their harnesses have a phone number written in sharpie marker, just in case.
I don't have collar tags because my dogs don't wear collars.
On each crate in the van I have a red and white tag that reads: DOGS TATTOOED AND MICROCHIPPED FOR POSITIVE ID
On the back of my passenger seat is a permanent sign with emergency contact info, my guarantee that any care or boarding necessary for dogs will be paid for in the event of any accident or emergency, and my vet's phone number. It also indicates that rabies certificates for dogs in my vehicle are in my glove compartment.
Redyre...I really like the idea of the info posted in the car. I am going to put that into place.
As usual, you are a wonderful source of information. In just the few weeks that I have been reading your posts, I have made some changes in the lives of my pets that I think give them a healthier, better quality lifestyle.
Kiba has her name and my house phone number on it, along with a rabies tag and her dog license.
I was told never to put Reward or your address on the tags... in case you are out somewhere with the dog and someone reads the tags... and knows where you live and that you'd give a reward if your dog was stolen.
For the same reason you mentioned (dont put the animals name on it, cause if someone wanted them, or found & didnt want to give them up), they w/have their name......so I have my 1st Initial & last name & my Home Phone number.
I have that in my van mainly because of how much traveling back and forth to dog shows I do.
Sometimes I am carrying dogs other than mine.
Accidents can happen. Medical emergencies can happen. I could not live with myself if something terrible happened to my dogs, or others who are in my care when I'm away.
This may not be ver batim, but it goes something like....
I, _______________ or my agent guarantees payment for boarding or medical attention in any emergency. Permission granted for any medical care that may be necessary for any dog due to illness or injury.
In the event I am incapacitated, contact (insert names and phone numbers here)
All dogs tattooed and microchipped for positive ID.
