How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Perro De Presa CanarioBuying a pet identification tag for your Perro De Presa Canario is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do so with the hopes that you won’t need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “real price” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically purchasing a collar tag because it’s cheap or cute often ends up being foolish, long-term.

Think about the following prior to picking any pet identification tag for your Perro De Presa Canario:
1.What is the level of risk to your Perro De Presa Canario?
Missing Perro De Presa Canarios are certainly common – we’ve all noticed “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or deceased dogs lying on the side of the road. If your Perro De Presa Canario is a pro at breaking through the fence, or cannot resist tracking a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or is not well trained, the risk of a missing Perro De Presa Canario is high.

But losing your Perro De Presa Canario isn’t the only risk.

Sometimes Perro De Presa Canarios get stolen. A pet thief may take Fifi or Fido hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in dog battles (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Perro De Presa Canario if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Perro De Presa Canario, particularly if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your furry friend, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be hit with a disaster or tragedy that leaves you unable to care for your Perro De Presa Canario.

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

2.What level of danger are you ok with?
Some Perro De Presa Canarios are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal calls for a specific, more expensive kind of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Keep in mind that there is more than one way to assess the value of your Perro De Presa Canario. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Perro De Presa Canario) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Perro De Presa Canario owners, the emotional attachment they have with their Perro De Presa Canario determines its value. For many people, Perro De Presa Canarios are like family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

3.Using your responses to the two previous questions, 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, as well. Usually pet ID tags are meant to be attached to a collar.

At a minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Perro De Presa Canario’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary kinds of tags can bought from any vet or pet store. They’re economical however the amount of info they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, there are many more options of pet ID tags for your Perro De Presa Canario these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

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 cage) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy polymer 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 also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is small, because of bluetooth technological limits.
