How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Gran Mastin De BorinquenChoosing a pet ID tag for your Gran Mastin De Borinquen 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 costly than the “actual price” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically purchasing a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or cute usually proves to be a regret, long-term.

Think about this before purchasing any pet identification tag for your Gran Mastin De Borinquen:
1.What is the level of risk to your Gran Mastin De Borinquen?
Missing Gran Mastin De Borinquens are very common – we have all seen “Lost Dog!” signs posted around the city, or dead dogs lying on the edge of the road. If your Gran Mastin De Borinquen is a master at hopping your fence, or can’t resist tracking a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or is not properly trained, the risk of a missing Gran Mastin De Borinquen is high.

But losing your Gran Mastin De Borinquen isn’t the only risk.

Some Gran Mastin De Borinquens are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fifi or Spot in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit battles (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in cult rituals.

And what is the risk to your Gran Mastin De Borinquen if something were to happen to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Gran Mastin De Borinquen, particularly if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that renders you unable to care for your companion.

In this instance, will your Gran Mastin De Borinquen’s temporary or new caretaker know that Spot hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your phone number and name would be extremely beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you ok with?
Some Gran Mastin De Borinquens are simply more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive kind of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there are multiple ways to assess the value of your Gran Mastin De Borinquen. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Gran Mastin De Borinquen) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Gran Mastin De Borinquen owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Gran Mastin De Borinquens are family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Based on your answers to the two previous questions, what do you require of a pet ID tag?

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

At a bare minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Gran Mastin De Borinquen’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 customary kinds of tags can gotten from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re inexpensive however the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, you have many more options for pet ID tags for your Gran Mastin De Borinquen these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entries in the pet identification game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your pet’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which can hold 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 veterinarian or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
