How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Grand Anglo-Francais TricoloreChoosing a pet identification tag for your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore is like buying an insurance policy – you do it with the hopes that you’re never going to need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “real cost” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet identification tag that you buy is crucial, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically purchasing a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or pretty usually proves to be a regret, down the road.

Think about this prior to choosing any pet id tag for your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore:
1.What is the level of risk to your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore?
Lost Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolores are very common – we have all noticed “Lost Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore!” signs setup around the city, or dead dogs lying on the edge of the road. If your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore is a pro at hopping the fence, or cannot resist tracking a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or isn’t correctly trained, the possibility of a lost Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore is high.

But losing your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolores are stolen. A pet thief may take Rover or Fido hoping to get 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 Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore if something were to happen to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore, especially if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a disaster or tragedy which renders you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore’s new or temporary caregiver know that Fido hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet identification that has more than your phone number and name would be very beneficial.

2.What amount of danger are you ok with?
Some Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolores are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal demands a specific, higher priced type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Realize that there is more than one way to determine the value of your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolores are members of the family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.From your responses to the two previous questions, what do you require of a pet identification tag?

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

At a bare minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary types of tags can bought from any vet or pet store. They’re inexpensive however the amount of info they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, there are many more options for pet ID tags for your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entrants in the pet identification game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your Grand Anglo-Francais Tricolore’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which holds 64MB of data (including complete medical and diet information). The tiny 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 also exist bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is small, due to bluetooth technological limits.
