How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Armenian Gampr DogChoosing a pet ID tag for your Armenian Gampr Dog is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do so with the faith that you won’t need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically buying a collar tag just because it’s low cost or cute often ends up being unwise, long-term.

Consider this before choosing any pet id tag for your Armenian Gampr Dog:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Armenian Gampr Dog?
Lost Armenian Gampr Dogs are very common – we have all come across “Lost Armenian Gampr Dog!” signs setup around town, or deceased Armenian Gampr Dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Armenian Gampr Dog is a master at breaking through your fence, or can’t resist tracking a scent, or young and energetic, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a missing Armenian Gampr Dog is high.

But losing your Armenian Gampr Dog isn’t the only risk.

Sometimes Armenian Gampr Dogs are stolen. A pet thief may steal Rover or Spot in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the danger to your Armenian Gampr Dog if something happens to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Armenian Gampr Dog, especially if you live by yourself or are in ill health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster that leaves you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Armenian Gampr Dog’s temporary or new steward know that Spot hates cats, or requires medication, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your phone number and name would be very beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you ok with?
Some Armenian Gampr Dogs are simply more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet demands a specific, higher priced kind of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Keep in mind that there are several ways to calculate the value of your Armenian Gampr Dog. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Armenian Gampr Dog) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Armenian Gampr Dog owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their Armenian Gampr Dog sets its value. For many, Armenian Gampr Dogs are members of the family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.From your responses to the two previous queries, what do you require of a pet identification tag?

Pet identification tags come in various shapes, sizes and materials and hold varying amounts of info. Some contain logos or artwork, also. Most pet identification tags are designed to be hung from a collar.

At the minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Armenian Gampr Dog’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These customary types of tags can gotten from any vet or pet store. They’re cheap however the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options of pet ID tags for your Armenian Gampr Dog these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the most recent entrants in the pet ID market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which holds 64MB of data (including comprehensive medical and diet information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy polymer case and can be used in any computer, where it is automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your animal doctor or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is small, because of bluetooth technological limits.
