How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Cirneco Dell'EtnaBuying a pet identification tag for your Cirneco Dell’Etna is like buying an insurance policy – you do so with the devout wish that you’re never going to 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 ID tag that you buy is crucial, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Whimsically buying a collar tag just because it’s low cost or pretty usually proves to be unwise, long-term.

Think about the following prior to choosing any pet id tag for your Cirneco Dell’Etna:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Cirneco Dell’Etna?
Lost Cirneco Dell’Etnas are very common – we have all noticed “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or dead Cirneco Dell’Etnas lying by the side of the road. If your Cirneco Dell’Etna is a pro at escaping your fence, or can’t help tracking a scent, or young and spry, or is not well trained, the risk of a lost Cirneco Dell’Etna is high.

But losing your Cirneco Dell’Etna isn’t the only danger.

Some Cirneco Dell’Etnas are stolen. A pet thief may snatch 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 Cirneco Dell’Etna if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Cirneco Dell’Etna, especially if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Cirneco Dell’Etna, perhaps with little notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster which leaves you unable to care for your Cirneco Dell’Etna.

In this case, will your Cirneco Dell’Etna’s new or temporary caretaker know that Fifi hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that has more than your name and phone number would be extremely helpful.

2.What level of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Cirneco Dell’Etnas are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet warrants a specific, higher priced type of pet identification tag. Risk is proportional to value.

Realize that there is more than one way to determine the value of your Cirneco Dell’Etna. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Cirneco Dell’Etna) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Cirneco Dell’Etna owners, the emotional attachment they have to their Cirneco Dell’Etna sets its value. For many owners, Cirneco Dell’Etnas are members of the family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

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

At a bare minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Cirneco Dell’Etna’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 animal doctor or pet store. They’re low cost however the amount of info they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options for pet identification tags for your Cirneco Dell’Etna these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entries in the pet ID game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your pet’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) 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 plugged into any computer, where it is automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is low, due to bluetooth technological limits.
