How to Pick an ID Tag for Your Bruno Jura HoundChoosing a pet identification tag for your Bruno Jura Hound is like purchasing an insurance policy – you do it with the faith that you won’t use it. The “possible price” of not having a pet ID tag is more expensive than the “actual cost” of buying the pet tag itself.

The type of pet identification tag that you buy is vital, so take five minutes or so to think it through. Whimsically picking a collar tag just because it’s inexpensive or cute usually proves to be foolish, down the road.

Consider the following prior to picking any pet id tag for your Bruno Jura Hound:
1.What is the level of risk to your Bruno Jura Hound?
Missing Bruno Jura Hounds are definitely common – we’ve all come across “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around the city, or dead dogs lying by the side of the road. If your Bruno Jura Hound is a pro at hopping your fence, or can’t resist following a smell, or youthful and energetic, or isn’t properly trained, the risk of a lost Bruno Jura Hound is high.

But losing your Bruno Jura Hound isn’t the only possibility.

Some Bruno Jura Hounds get stolen. A pet thief may steal Fido or Fifi in hopes of getting a reward for its return, or to use in pit fights (even small or gentle dogs are susceptible – they can be used for “bait”), or for use in cult rituals.

And what is the danger to your Bruno Jura Hound if something were to happen to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Bruno Jura Hound, especially if you live by yourself or are in poor health, there’s a high chance that at some point someone else may need to care for your furry friend, maybe with short notice. And anyone can be hit with a disaster or tragedy which leaves you unable to care for your Bruno Jura Hound.

In this instance, will your Bruno Jura Hound’s temporary or new caregiver know that Spot hates cats, or needs medicine, or even whether or not Max is potty trained? A pet ID tag that contains more than your name and phone number would be extremely helpful.

2.What level of risk are you ok with?
Some Bruno Jura Hounds are just more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal calls for a specific, more expensive kind of pet identification tag. Risk is proportionate to value.

Realize that there are many ways to calculate the value of your Bruno Jura Hound. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Bruno Jura Hound) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

However for most Bruno Jura Hound owners, the relationoship attachment they have to their companion determines its value. For many, Bruno Jura Hounds 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 ID tag?

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

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

Fortunately, you have many more options for pet ID tags for your Bruno Jura Hound these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet id tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the newer 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 medical and diet information). The small 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 small, due to bluetooth technological limits.
