How to Pick an ID Tag for Your AriegeoisBuying a pet ID tag for your Ariegeois is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the hopes that you’ll never use it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “real cost” of purchasing the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is crucial, so take 5 minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically picking a collar tag because it’s low cost or trendy often proves to be unwise, down the road.

Consider this before choosing any pet identification tag for your Ariegeois:
1.What is the level of risk to your Ariegeois?
Missing Ariegeoiss are definitely common – we’ve all seen “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or dead dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Ariegeois is a pro at hopping your fence, or cannot resist tracking a smell, or young and full of energy, or is not well trained, the chance of a missing Ariegeois is high.

But losing your Ariegeois isn’t the only concern.

Sometimes Ariegeoiss get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Spot or Rover in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog 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 Ariegeois if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Ariegeois, especially if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, maybe with little notice. And anyone can be struck by tragedy or disaster that leaves you unable to care for your companion.

In this instance, will your Ariegeois’s new or temporary caretaker know that Fifi hates cats, or requires medication, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet identification that has more than your name and phone number would be very helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Ariegeoiss are just more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that particular animal demands a specific, higher priced type of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there are multiple ways to determine the value of your Ariegeois. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Ariegeois) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Ariegeois owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their Ariegeois sets its value. For many owners, Ariegeoiss are family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

Pet ID tags come in varying shapes, sizes and materials and can contain varying amounts of info. Some contain logos or artwork, also. Many pet identification tags are designed to be attached to a collar.

At the minimum, a pet identification tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Ariegeois’s owner in a legible, durable format. Plastic tags are lightweight but easily chewed. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary kinds of tags can bought from any veterinarian or pet store. They’re low cost however the amount of information they can display is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, there are many more options of pet ID tags for your Ariegeois these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entries in the pet ID game 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 comprehensive 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 easily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is severely limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.
