How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Bully KuttaBuying a pet ID tag for your Bully Kutta is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the devout wish that you won’t 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 kind of pet ID tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Whimsically purchasing a collar tag just because it’s low cost or trendy usually ends up being foolish, down the road.

Consider this before picking any pet identification tag for your Bully Kutta:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Bully Kutta?
Missing Bully Kuttas are certainly common – we’ve all come across “Lost Bully Kutta!” signs tacked around town, or deceased Bully Kuttas lying on the edge of the road. If your Bully Kutta is a master at breaking through the fence, or cannot help tracking a smell, or young and spry, or isn’t properly trained, the possibility of a missing Bully Kutta is high.

But losing your Bully Kutta isn’t the only risk.

Sometimes Bully Kuttas get stolen. A pet thief may take Spot or Rover hoping to get 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 religious rituals.

And what is the risk to your Bully Kutta if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior citizen with a Bully Kutta, especially if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your Bully Kutta, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a tragedy or disaster that leaves you incapable of caring for your Bully Kutta.

In this instance, will your Bully Kutta’s new or temporary caretaker know that Fido hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet identification that has more than your name and phone number would be extremely helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you ok with?
Some Bully Kuttas are just more important to their owners, and the risk of losing that pet calls for a specific, more expensive type of pet identification tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Keep in mind that there is more than one way to calculate the value of your Bully Kutta. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Bully Kutta) or functional (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Bully Kutta owners, the emotional attachment they have with their companion determines its value. For many people, Bully Kuttas are like family, impossible to replace and dearly loved.

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

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

At the minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the address, phone number and name of the Bully Kutta’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags don’t rust or fade and are durable. These customary types of tags can purchased from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re low cost but the amount of information they hold is limited to the size of the tag.

Luckily, you have many more options for pet identification tags for your Bully Kutta these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the newest entrants in the pet ID market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which holds 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical information). The small USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is automatically updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth trackers, but their range is limited, due to bluetooth technological limits.
