Picking a pet identification tag for your Tamaskan Dog is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the devout wish that you won’t need it. The “possible cost” of not having a pet ID tag is more costly than the “actual cost” of purchasing the pet tag itself.
The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively picking a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or pretty usually ends up being foolish, long-term.
Consider the following before choosing any pet identification tag for your Tamaskan Dog:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Tamaskan Dog?
Missing Tamaskan Dogs are very common – we have all seen “Lost Tamaskan Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or dead dogs lying along the edge of the road. If your Tamaskan Dog is a master at escaping your fence, or can’t resist chasing a smell, or young and energetic, or isn’t well trained, the risk of a lost Tamaskan Dog is high.
But losing your Tamaskan Dog isn’t the only danger.
Some Tamaskan Dogs are stolen. A pet thief may snatch Spot or Rover in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are at risk – they can be used as “bait”), or for use in religious rituals.
And what is the risk to your Tamaskan Dog if something happens to you, its owner?
If you’re a senior citizen with a Tamaskan Dog, especially if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with little notice. And anyone can be struck by disaster or tragedy which leaves you unable to care for your companion.
In this case, will your Tamaskan Dog’s temporary or new caretaker know that Spot hates cats, or requires medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your phone number and name would be extremely helpful.
2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Tamaskan Dogs are simply more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet demands a specific, higher priced type of pet ID tag. Risk is proportionate to value.
Keep in mind that there are many ways to determine the value of your Tamaskan Dog. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Tamaskan Dog) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).
But for most Tamaskan Dog owners, the companionship attachment they have with their Tamaskan Dog determines its value. For many people, Tamaskan Dogs are family members, impossible to replace and dearly loved.
3.From your responses to the two previous queries, what do you need in a pet ID tag?
Pet identification tags come in varying shapes, sizes and materials and hold varying amounts of information. Some contain logos or artwork, as well. Most pet identification tags are meant to be attached to a collar.
At a minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the phone number, name and address of the Tamaskan Dog’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are light but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These traditional kinds of tags can purchased from any vet or pet store. They’re inexpensive but the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.
Luckily, you have many more options of pet identification tags for your Tamaskan Dog 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 from your Tamaskan Dog’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which holds 64MB of data (including comprehensive medical and diet information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be used in any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, because of bluetooth technological limits.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Tamaskan Dogs
