How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Thai Bangkaew DogPicking a pet identification tag for your Thai Bangkaew Dog is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the devout wish that you’re never going to need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “real price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively choosing a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or pretty usually proves to be foolish, long-term.

Think about the following before choosing any pet identification tag for your Thai Bangkaew Dog:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Thai Bangkaew Dog?
Lost Thai Bangkaew Dogs are very common – we have all noticed “Lost Thai Bangkaew Dog!” signs setup around the city, or dead dogs lying by the side of the road. If your Thai Bangkaew Dog is a master at escaping the fence, or cannot help following a scent, or youthful and full of energy, or is not well trained, the possibility of a lost Thai Bangkaew Dog is high.

But losing your Thai Bangkaew Dog isn’t the only risk.

Sometimes Thai Bangkaew Dogs are stolen. A pet thief may steal Fifi or Spot hoping to get a reward for its return, or to use in pit battles (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the danger to your Thai Bangkaew Dog if something happens to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Thai Bangkaew Dog, especially if you live alone or are in ill 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 tragedy or disaster that renders you unable to care for your companion.

In this instance, will your Thai Bangkaew Dog’s new or temporary steward know that Fido hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet identification that contains more than your phone number and name would be extremely helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Thai Bangkaew Dogs are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal demands a specific, higher priced kind of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Realize that there is more than one way to calculate the value of your Thai Bangkaew Dog. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Thai Bangkaew Dog) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Thai Bangkaew Dog owners, the emotional attachment they have with their companion sets its value. For many people, Thai Bangkaew Dogs are like family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.From your responses to the two previous queries, what do you need in a pet identification tag?

Pet ID tags come in varying sizes, shapes and materials and can contain varying amounts of information. Some contain artwork or logos, also. Most pet identification tags are designed to be attached to a collar.

At a minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Thai Bangkaew Dog’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are light but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These traditional kinds of tags can gotten from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re low cost however the amount of information they can contain is limited to the size of the tag.

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

One of the recent entrants in the pet ID market 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 tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy polymer case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is easily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your veterinarian or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is low, due to bluetooth technological limits.
