How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et NoirChoosing a pet identification tag for your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir is like buying insurance – you do it with the faith that you’ll never need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “real price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet ID tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically picking a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or cute often proves to be unwise, long-term.

Consider this before buying any pet identification tag for your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir:
1.What is the level of risk to your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir?
Missing Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noirs are very common – we have all noticed “Lost Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir!” signs tacked around the city, or dead dogs lying along the edge of the road. If your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir is a pro at breaking through your fence, or can’t resist chasing a scent, or young and energetic, or is not correctly trained, the chance of a missing Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir is high.

But losing your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir isn’t the only danger.

Some Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noirs get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fifi or Fido 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 as “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.

And what is the danger to your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir, particularly if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a good 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 which renders you unable to care for your companion.

In this case, will your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir’s temporary or new steward know that Fifi 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 very helpful.

2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noirs are simply more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Keep in mind that there are multiple ways to calculate the value of your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir owners, the relationoship attachment they have with their Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir sets its value. For many, Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noirs are family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

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

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

At the minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are light but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary kinds of tags can gotten from any vet or pet store. They’re cheap but the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options of pet identification tags for your Grand Anglo-Francais Blanc Et Noir 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 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 readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your animal doctor or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is small, due to bluetooth technological limits.
