How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Ratonero Bodeguero AndaluzChoosing a pet ID tag for your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz is like buying insurance – you do so with the faith that you’ll never 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 identification tag that you buy is important, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively choosing a collar tag because it’s cheap or cute usually ends up being a regret, long-term.

Think about the following prior to choosing any pet identification tag for your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz?
Missing Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluzs are certainly common – we have all come across “Lost Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz!” signs plastered around town, or dead dogs lying by the side of the road. If your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz is a pro at escaping the fence, or can’t resist following a scent, or young and full of energy, or is not correctly trained, the chance of a lost Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz is high.

But losing your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluzs get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Spot or Rover in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in cult rituals.

And what is the risk to your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz, 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 Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that renders you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this instance, will your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz’s new or temporary caretaker know that Fifi hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your phone number and name would be very helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluzs are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet warrants a specific, more expensive kind of pet identification tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Keep in mind that there are several ways to assess the value of your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz owners, the emotional attachment they have to their companion sets its value. For many, Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluzs are like family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

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

Pet identification tags come in various shapes, sizes and materials and hold varying amounts of information. Some have logos or artwork, too. Most pet identification tags are meant to be attached to a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz’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 traditional kinds of tags can bought from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re inexpensive but the amount of information they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, you have many more options of pet identification tags for your Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

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