How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Cao Da Serra De AiresChoosing a pet identification tag for your Cao Da Serra De Aires is like purchasing insurance – you do it with the hopes that you won’t use it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “real cost” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively choosing a collar tag just because it’s cheap or pretty usually proves to be unwise, in the long term.

Think about the following prior to choosing any pet identification tag for your Cao Da Serra De Aires:
1.What is the level of risk to your Cao Da Serra De Aires?
Missing Cao Da Serra De Airess are definitely common – we’ve all come across “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or deceased dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Cao Da Serra De Aires is a pro at tunneling under the fence, or cannot help following a scent, or youthful and spry, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a missing Cao Da Serra De Aires is high.

But losing your Cao Da Serra De Aires isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Cao Da Serra De Airess are stolen. A pet thief may steal Spot or Rover in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog 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 Cao Da Serra De Aires if something were to happen to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Cao Da Serra De Aires, especially if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Cao Da Serra De Aires, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that leaves you unable to care for your Cao Da Serra De Aires.

In this instance, will your Cao Da Serra De Aires’s temporary or new steward know that Spot hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that has more than your phone number and name would be extremely beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you ok with?
Some Cao Da Serra De Airess are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet calls for a specific, higher priced type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportional to value.

Realize that there are many ways to determine the value of your Cao Da Serra De Aires. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Cao Da Serra De Aires) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Cao Da Serra De Aires owners, the emotional attachment they have to their Cao Da Serra De Aires determines its value. For many owners, Cao Da Serra De Airess are family members, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

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

Pet identification tags come in various sizes, shapes and materials and hold varying amounts of information. Some contain logos or artwork, as well. Many pet identification tags are meant to be hung from a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Cao Da Serra De Aires’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are light but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These customary kinds of tags can bought from any vet or pet store. They’re cheap however the amount of information they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options in pet identification tags for your Cao Da Serra De Aires these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the newest entries in the pet ID market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your pet’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which holds 64MB of data (including comprehensive medical and diet information). The tiny 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 veterinarian or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
