How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Rampur GreyhoundBuying a pet ID tag for your Rampur Greyhound is like buying insurance – you do so with the faith that you’re never going to use it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual cost” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is crucial, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically buying a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or cute often ends up being unwise, in the long term.

Consider the following prior to purchasing any pet identification tag for your Rampur Greyhound:
1.What is the level of risk to your Rampur Greyhound?
Lost Rampur Greyhounds are certainly common – we have all seen “Lost Dog!” signs setup around town, or deceased Rampur Greyhounds lying by the side of the road. If your Rampur Greyhound is a pro at breaking through the fence, or can’t resist chasing a scent, or young and full of energy, or isn’t properly trained, the possibility of a lost Rampur Greyhound is high.

But losing your Rampur Greyhound isn’t the only concern.

Sometimes Rampur Greyhounds get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Fido or Fifi 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 religious rituals.

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

If you’re a senior adult with a Rampur Greyhound, 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 Rampur Greyhound, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be struck by disaster or tragedy which renders you incapable of caring for your Rampur Greyhound.

In this instance, will your Rampur Greyhound’s temporary or new caretaker know that Spot hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that has more than your name and phone number would be very beneficial.

2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Rampur Greyhounds are simply more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet warrants a specific, higher priced type of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

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

However for most Rampur Greyhound owners, the companionship attachment they have with their Rampur Greyhound determines its value. For many people, Rampur Greyhounds are family members, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

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

Pet ID tags come in various materials, shapes and sizes and hold varying amounts of information. Some have logos or artwork, as well. Many pet ID tags are designed to be hung from a collar.

At a bare minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Rampur Greyhound’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary types of tags can gotten from any vet or pet store. They’re economical however the amount of info they can contain is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, there are many more options in pet identification tags for your Rampur Greyhound these days, such as microchipping, tattooing, digital display tags, pet registry web sites and voice recorded pet identification tags.

One of the recent entries in the pet identification market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs off your Rampur Greyhound’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which holds 64MB of data (including complete 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 veterinarian or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
