Here at PetHub, we think it’s high time to have a serious talk about identification tags and leaving the old “pet-name-and-one-phone-number” etched tags in the past.
Today’s digital pet ID tags are not your grand-daddy’s dog tags. Pet identification tags have come a LONG way in just the last few years, folks, and if you’re still putting a $7 dollar circle of etched, one-name-and-number, aluminum on your dog or cat’s collar, your pets are missing out on powerful protection.
When you pass another dog on your walk, or see a cat crossing the road, they are wearing a collar or harness with ID attached, right? If you saw that same pet lounging around on the couch, chances are they might be naked, or sans ID. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently found that only 33 percent of pet parents said they keep ID tags on their dogs and cats at all times.
That means, at one point or another, the majority of pets aren’t wearing identification that can help get them home if the worst happens. This is a real problem folks.
Give you or your friend’s best furry pal the gift of safety this season. These are our top 5 must-have items to help keep your pup safe.
I don't know about you, but Autumn has a way of creeping up on me. I've been so used to the warm weather and the ample daylight, I'm always a little surprised that morning when I go out to walk the dogs and I not only need a jacket, but I also need a flashlight! It's a sure sign that fall is coming, and winter is right around the corner. And for folks like us here in the Pacfic Northwest, that means that COLD weather can come fast and furious, and a pet parent needs to be prepared.
Daisy’s Dad was being prepared when he was checking her tags to make sure they were legible and up-to-date. It was during this routine check he discovered that her tag was damaged and difficult to read.
