How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Tennessee Treeing BrindleChoosing a pet ID tag for your Tennessee Treeing Brindle is like buying insurance – you do it 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 “real price” of buying the pet tag itself.

The kind of pet identification tag that you buy is important, so take 5 minutes or so to think it through. Impulsively choosing a collar tag because it’s inexpensive or trendy usually proves to be a regret, in the long term.

Think about this before picking any pet id tag for your Tennessee Treeing Brindle:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Tennessee Treeing Brindle?
Lost Tennessee Treeing Brindles are definitely common – we’ve all come across “Lost Tennessee Treeing Brindle!” signs posted around the city, or deceased dogs lying along the side of the road. If your Tennessee Treeing Brindle is a master at jumping your fence, or cannot help tracking a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or isn’t well trained, the chance of a lost Tennessee Treeing Brindle is high.

But losing your Tennessee Treeing Brindle isn’t the only risk.

Some Tennessee Treeing Brindles get stolen. A pet thief may snatch Rover or Fido in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit 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 Tennessee Treeing Brindle if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Tennessee Treeing Brindle, particularly if you live alone or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your furry friend, perhaps with little notice. And anyone can be struck by disaster or tragedy which renders you incapable of caring for your Tennessee Treeing Brindle.

In this case, will your Tennessee Treeing Brindle’s temporary or new caretaker know that Rover hates cats, or needs medication, or even whether or not Max is housetrained? A pet identification that contains more than your phone number and name would be very helpful.

2.What amount of danger are you ok with?
Some Tennessee Treeing Brindles are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal demands a specific, higher priced kind of pet ID tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

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

However for most Tennessee Treeing Brindle owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their Tennessee Treeing Brindle sets its value. For many, Tennessee Treeing Brindles are family members, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

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

Pet ID tags come in varying materials, shapes and sizes and hold varying amounts of information. Some contain artwork or logos, also. Most pet ID tags are designed to be hung from a collar.

At a minimum, a pet ID tag should contain the name, address and phone number of the Tennessee Treeing Brindle’s owner in a durable, legible format. Plastic tags are lightweight but chewed easily. Stainless steel tags are durable and don’t rust or fade. These traditional kinds of tags can bought from any animal doctor or pet store. They’re inexpensive but the amount of information they can contain is limited to the size of the tag.

Fortunately, there are many more options of pet identification tags for your Tennessee Treeing Brindle 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 Tennessee Treeing Brindle’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which can hold 64MB of data (including complete diet and medical information). The tiny USB drive is encased in a sturdy plastic case and can be plugged into any computer, where it is readily updated and easy to print sections for sharing with your vet or pet sitter. There are also bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is low, due to bluetooth technological limits.
