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

The type of pet ID tag that you buy is important, so take five minutes or so to consider it. Impulsively purchasing a collar tag because it’s low cost or pretty usually proves to be a regret, in the long term.

Think about the following prior to buying any pet id tag for your Cordoba Fighting Dog:
1.What is the amount of risk to your Cordoba Fighting Dog?
Lost Cordoba Fighting Dogs are certainly common – we have all seen “Lost Dog!” signs plastered around town, or dead Cordoba Fighting Dogs lying by the edge of the road. If your Cordoba Fighting Dog is a master at hopping your fence, or can’t resist tracking a smell, or youthful and vigorous, or is not properly trained, the chance of a lost Cordoba Fighting Dog is high.

But losing your Cordoba Fighting Dog isn’t the only possibility.

Some Cordoba Fighting Dogs get stolen. A pet thief may steal Fifi or Fido 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 satanic rituals.

And what is the risk to your Cordoba Fighting Dog if something happens to you, its owner?

If you’re a senior adult with a Cordoba Fighting Dog, particularly if you live alone or are in ill health, there’s a good chance that at some point someone else will need to care for your Cordoba Fighting Dog, perhaps with short notice. And anyone can be struck by disaster or tragedy which leaves you unable to care for your companion.

In this instance, will your Cordoba Fighting Dog’s temporary or new steward 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 name and phone number would be extremely helpful.

2.What level of risk are you comfortable with?
Some Cordoba Fighting Dogs are simply more important to their owners, and the chance of losing that particular animal demands a specific, higher priced kind of pet identification tag. Risk is directly proportional to value.

Note that there is more than one way to calculate the value of your Cordoba Fighting Dog. It may be monetary (e.g., a purebred Cordoba Fighting Dog) or occupational (e.g., a guide dog).

But for most Cordoba Fighting Dog owners, the companionship attachment they have with their companion determines its value. For many people, Cordoba Fighting Dogs are family members, dearly loved and impossible to replace.

3.From your responses to the two previous questions, what do you require of a pet identification tag?

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

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

Fortunately, there are many more options for pet identification tags for your Cordoba Fighting Dog these days, such as tattooing, microchipping, digital display tags, voice recorded pet identification tags, and pet registry websites.

One of the recent entrants in the pet ID game is the high-tech USB drive that hangs from your pet’s collar (or is attached to their cage) and which can hold 64MB of data (including comprehensive diet and medical 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 veterinarian or pet sitter. There also exist bluetooth devices for tracking, but their range is small, because of bluetooth technological limits.
