How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Bosnian Coarse-Haired HoundChoosing a pet ID tag for your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound is like purchasing insurance – you do so with the devout wish that you won’t use it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “real price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively picking a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or cute usually ends up being unwise, long-term.

Consider this before picking any pet id tag for your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound:
1.What is the level of risk to your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound?
Missing Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hounds are definitely common – we have all noticed “Lost Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound!” signs tacked around the city, or dead dogs lying on the side of the road. If your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound is a pro at escaping the fence, or can’t help following a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or is not well trained, the chance of a lost Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound is high.

But losing your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound isn’t the only possibility.

Some Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hounds are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fido or Fifi in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog battles (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 Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound if something happens to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound, particularly if you live alone 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 little notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster which renders you unable to care for your companion.

In this case, will your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound’s temporary or new caretaker know that Fifi 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 helpful.

2.What level of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hounds are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet demands a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there is more than one way to assess the value of your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound owners, the emotional attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many owners, Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hounds are like family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.Using your responses to the two previous queries, what do you need in a pet ID tag?

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

At a minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the phone number, name and address of the Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These traditional types of tags can bought from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re low cost but the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options in pet identification tags for your Bosnian Coarse-Haired Hound these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entries in the pet ID game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which holds 64MB of data (including complete diet and medical information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
