If your dog has ever been missing for even a moment, you know you would do anything to keep from feeling that panic and fear again. The number one priority of any dog owner is keeping their pet safe. Leashes, fences, and sophisticated radio tracking devices are just some of the ways we keep our pets safe. However, the simplest and most effective way to ensure your pet is returned if they are lost is to make sure he or she has a pet dog tags. A tag that lists the dogs name and your contact information will ensure that any pet that goes missing will be returned to you as soon as he or she is found. Many communities require pets to be licensed and have an identification tag on at all times.
There are several different types of pet dog tags to choose from. The most lightweight are made from aluminum and they often come in different colors. These lightweight tags are best for smaller dogs. If your dog is larger, you may want something more durable like a brass or stainless steel tag. These tags will handle more wear and tear. Several types of tags are available in highly polished metals like nickel for a brilliant shine that looks great against a dark coat.
