Pet Safety: Importance of Dog ID Tags

As pet owners, we always want to make sure that our pets are safe and secured too. Hence, dog tags serve more than just a fashion accessory. It is quite essential for our pet’s safety and security. It is the best thing that we can give to our pets to fight against losing them.

Unfortunately, a number of pet dogs were never reunited with their owners because these pets do not have dog ID tags. Aside from putting your pet’s name and your phone number on the dog collar, you can add pictures on dog tags too. In case your dog gets lost, you want to ensure that you have better chance of being reunited; here are some things that you have to keep in mind:

·         Choose high quality dog tags. They come in different shapes, colors and Dog Tag Art too. Make sure that you go for high quality because cheaper dog tags often have poor finishing. The rough edges on the dog tags may irritate your dog’s skin.
·         Engrave the name and phone number. Make sure that you put all possible contact numbers so that they could easily get in touch with you. If engraving is not possible, just print a sticker containing necessary information.
·         Add the word “reward”. Some people would not bother to return a lost dog especially if it’s a cute puppy. But writing the word “reward” could motivate them to return your pet, because they know that they will receive an incentive for returning the dog.
