How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Bucovina Shepherd DogPicking a pet ID tag for your Bucovina Shepherd Dog is like purchasing insurance – you do it with the devout wish that you’re never going to need it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet ID tag that you buy is crucial, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively picking a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or trendy often proves to be foolish, long-term.

Think about this prior to choosing any pet id tag for your Bucovina Shepherd Dog:
1.What is the level of risk to your Bucovina Shepherd Dog?
Missing Bucovina Shepherd Dogs are certainly common – we have all seen “Lost Dog!” signs posted around town, or deceased Bucovina Shepherd Dogs lying on the edge of the road. If your Bucovina Shepherd Dog is a master at breaking through the fence, or cannot resist following a scent, or youthful and vigorous, or isn’t properly trained, the possibility of a missing Bucovina Shepherd Dog is high.

But losing your Bucovina Shepherd Dog isn’t the only danger.

Some Bucovina Shepherd Dogs are stolen. A pet thief may take Spot or Rover in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in dog battles (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in cult rituals.

And what is the risk to your Bucovina Shepherd Dog if something happens to you, the owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Bucovina Shepherd Dog, especially if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your Bucovina Shepherd Dog, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a disaster or tragedy that leaves you incapable of caring for your companion.

In this case, will your Bucovina Shepherd Dog’s new or temporary caregiver know that Spot hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your phone number and name would be very beneficial.

2.What level of danger are you comfortable with?
Some Bucovina Shepherd Dogs are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal calls for a specific, more expensive kind of pet ID tag. Risk is proportional to value.

Keep in mind that there are several ways to determine the value of your Bucovina Shepherd Dog. It may be financial (e.g., a purebred Bucovina Shepherd Dog) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Bucovina Shepherd Dog owners, the sentimental attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Bucovina Shepherd Dogs are members of the family, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

Pet ID tags come in various shapes, sizes and materials and hold varying amounts of info. Some have logos or artwork, as well. Most pet identification tags are designed to be attached to a collar.

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

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

One of the recent entrants in the pet ID market is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your Bucovina Shepherd Dog’s collar (or is attached to their kennel) and which holds 64MB of data (including complete medical and diet information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is easily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your animal doctor or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth trackers, but their range is small, due to bluetooth technological limits.
