How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Prazsky KrysarikChoosing a pet ID tag for your Prazsky Krysarik is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the devout wish 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 kind of pet ID tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to think it through. Whimsically choosing a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or pretty usually proves to be unwise, long-term.

Think about this prior to choosing any pet id tag for your Prazsky Krysarik:
1.What is the level of risk to your Prazsky Krysarik?
Lost Prazsky Krysariks are very common – we have all seen “Lost Prazsky Krysarik!” signs posted around the city, or dead Prazsky Krysariks lying along the edge of the road. If your Prazsky Krysarik is a pro at escaping your fence, or cannot resist following a smell, or youthful and energetic, or is not well trained, the chance of a lost Prazsky Krysarik is high.

But losing your Prazsky Krysarik isn’t the only possibility.

Sometimes Prazsky Krysariks get stolen. A pet thief may take Fido or Fifi in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog fights (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Prazsky Krysarik if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Prazsky Krysarik, especially if you live by yourself or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Prazsky Krysarik, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that renders you incapable of caring for your Prazsky Krysarik.

In this instance, will your Prazsky Krysarik’s new or temporary caregiver know that Fido hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your name and phone number would be extremely beneficial.

2.What level of risk are you ok with?
Some Prazsky Krysariks are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal calls for a specific, higher priced kind of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there are many ways to calculate the value of your Prazsky Krysarik. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Prazsky Krysarik) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Prazsky Krysarik owners, the companionship attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Prazsky Krysariks are family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.Based on your responses to the two previous questions, what do you require of a pet ID tag?

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

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

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

One of the recent entries in the pet identification game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your Prazsky Krysarik’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your veterinarian or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is small, because of bluetooth technological limits.
