How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Cierny SeryPicking a pet ID tag for your Cierny Sery is like buying insurance – you do so with the devout wish that you won’t use it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “actual cost” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Whimsically buying a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or pretty often proves to be foolish, in the long term.

Consider this before picking any pet identification tag for your Cierny Sery:
1.What is the level of risk to your Cierny Sery?
Missing Cierny Serys are definitely common – we have all noticed “Lost Cierny Sery!” signs tacked around the city, or dead Cierny Serys lying on the side of the road. If your Cierny Sery is a pro at hopping the fence, or cannot help following a scent, or youthful and spry, or is not properly trained, the chance of a lost Cierny Sery is high.

But losing your Cierny Sery isn’t the only concern.

Sometimes Cierny Serys get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Rover or Spot 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 for “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Cierny Sery if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Cierny Sery, particularly if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Cierny Sery, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster which renders you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Cierny Sery’s temporary or new caregiver know that Fido hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that has more than your name and phone number would be extremely beneficial.

2.What amount of danger are you ok with?
Some Cierny Serys are just more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet warrants a specific, more expensive kind of pet ID tag. Risk is proportional to value.

Realize that there is more than one way to determine the value of your Cierny Sery. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Cierny Sery) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Cierny Sery owners, the emotional attachment they have to their companion sets its value. For many, Cierny Serys are like family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.Using your answers to the two previous queries, what do you require of a pet ID tag?

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

At a minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the phone number, name and address of the Cierny Sery’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but chewed easily. 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 yet 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 Cierny Sery these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the newer entrants in the pet ID market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your Cierny Sery’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 polymer case and can be used in 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, because of bluetooth technological limits.
