How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Schweizerischer NiederlaufhundChoosing a pet ID tag for your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do so with the hopes that you won’t need it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “real price” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is important, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively buying a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or trendy often ends up being foolish, in the long term.

Consider this prior to picking any pet id tag for your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund:
1.What is the level of risk to your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund?
Missing Schweizerischer Niederlaufhunds are certainly common – we have all come across “Lost Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund!” signs plastered around the city, or deceased dogs lying along the edge of the road. If your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund is a pro at escaping your fence, or can’t help chasing a smell, or young and full of energy, or is not well trained, the possibility of a missing Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund is high.

But losing your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Schweizerischer Niederlaufhunds are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fifi or Fido hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in cult rituals.

And what is the danger to your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund, especially if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that leaves you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund’s temporary or new caretaker know that Fifi hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that has more than your phone number and name would be extremely beneficial.

2.What amount of risk are you ok with?
Some Schweizerischer Niederlaufhunds are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Realize that there are multiple ways to calculate the value of your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund sets its value. For many, Schweizerischer Niederlaufhunds are members of the family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Based on your responses to the two previous queries, what do you require of 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. Many pet identification tags are designed to be hung from a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are light but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary kinds of tags can gotten from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re economical yet the amount of info they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, you have many more options in pet ID tags for your Schweizerischer Niederlaufhund these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the most recent entries in the pet identification market 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 diet and medical information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your animal doctor or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is low, due to bluetooth technological limits.
