My Biggest Fear: What Happens If My Jerk-face Dog Gets Lost?

I’m not gonna sugarcoat this...my dog, Penny, is a jerk. She's a reactive dog who, although she has come a long way, acts a little (OK, a lot) nuts sometimes... especially in an unfamiliar environment. My biggest fear is what will happen if she gets lost.

Why Your Pet Needs A Digital ID Tag

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.  

Don’t Let Your Pet Run Around Naked!

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.
