How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Rastreador BrasileiroChoosing a pet ID tag for your Rastreador Brasileiro is like purchasing insurance – you do it with the faith that you’re never going to use it. The “possible cost” 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 crucial, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Whimsically buying a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or trendy often proves to be a regret, down the road.

Consider this before picking any pet id tag for your Rastreador Brasileiro:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Rastreador Brasileiro?
Lost Rastreador Brasileiros are definitely common – we have all seen “Lost Dog!” signs posted around the city, or dead dogs lying by the side of the road. If your Rastreador Brasileiro is a pro at breaking through your fence, or can’t resist tracking a smell, or youthful and spry, or isn’t correctly trained, the risk of a missing Rastreador Brasileiro is high.

But losing your Rastreador Brasileiro isn’t the only danger.

Some Rastreador Brasileiros get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Rover or Spot 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 Rastreador Brasileiro if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Rastreador Brasileiro, particularly if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Rastreador Brasileiro, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster which leaves you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Rastreador Brasileiro’s temporary or new steward know that Spot hates cats, or requires medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet identification that contains more than your phone number and name would be very beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Rastreador Brasileiros are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there is more than one way to assess the value of your Rastreador Brasileiro. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Rastreador Brasileiro) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Rastreador Brasileiro owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their Rastreador Brasileiro sets its value. For many owners, Rastreador Brasileiros are family members, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

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

At the minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Rastreador Brasileiro’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These customary kinds of tags can gotten from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re cheap yet the amount of info they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options of pet ID tags for your Rastreador Brasileiro these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the recent entrants 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 holds 64MB of data (including complete diet and medical information). The tiny 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 animal doctor or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, due to bluetooth technological limits.
