How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Pachon NavarroBuying a pet ID tag for your Pachon Navarro is like buying an insurance policy – you do so with the hopes that you won’t use it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual cost” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively buying a collar tag just because it’s cheap or pretty usually ends up being a regret, long-term.

Consider the following prior to picking any pet id tag for your Pachon Navarro:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Pachon Navarro?
Missing Pachon Navarros are very common – we’ve all come across “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around town, or dead dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Pachon Navarro is a pro at breaking through your fence, or can’t help chasing a smell, or youthful and energetic, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a missing Pachon Navarro is high.

But losing your Pachon Navarro isn’t the only concern.

Some Pachon Navarros get stolen. A pet thief may steal Rover or Fido hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in dog battles (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the risk to your Pachon Navarro if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Pachon Navarro, 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 furry friend, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster which renders you incapable of caring for your Pachon Navarro.

In this instance, will your Pachon Navarro’s temporary or new steward know that Rover hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that contains more than your name and phone number would be very beneficial.

2.What amount of danger are you ok with?
Some Pachon Navarros are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Realize that there are several ways to determine the value of your Pachon Navarro. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Pachon Navarro) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Pachon Navarro owners, the relationoship attachment they have with their companion determines its value. For many people, Pachon Navarros are family members, 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 materials, shapes and sizes and hold varying amounts of info. Some contain artwork or logos, too. Usually pet ID tags are designed to be attached to a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Pachon Navarro’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These traditional kinds of tags can gotten from any vet or pet store. They’re economical but the amount of info they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, you have many more options of pet ID tags for your Pachon Navarro these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the newer entrants in the pet identification 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 plastic case and can be used in any computer, where it is easily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
