    Pet tags can be one of the most important investments you make in the days after you’ve brought a new dog, cat or pet home for the first time. Should the pet unfortunately go missing, you’ll naturally be anguished about the prospect of potentially never seeing your pet friend again.

    However, buying a pet id tag may be one way of ensuring this scenario doesn’t become a reality. Any pet owner should seriously consider the benefits of buying an identification tag for a beloved pet – it really is one of the most sensible investments you can make.

    Benefits of Pet ID Tags



    •    As touched on above, buying pet tags can help offer you ease of mind and a little comfort should, for whatever reason, your pet go missing. If someone in the local area happens to come across your pet, having a pet tags in place can make it far easier to achieve a swift return.

    •    Dog tags and general pet tags can be relatively inexpensive, so there’s no reason why the extra expense of an ID tag can’t be justified when you weigh up the overall benefits of the decision.

    •    Pet ID tags can be used to transfer all sorts of information that could make the difference when a dog goes missing. Some owners choose to list full details of the dog’s home environment on dog tags, other choose simply to leave telephone numbers. If you’re a little worried about your own personal privacy in the event of losing your pet, it may be best to opt for the latter decision, and leave a short list of emergency numbers which anybody who locates your pet can use to contact you quickly.

    •    Don’t shy away from engraving or imprinting your dog’s name on a pet ID tag (and likewise for other pets). Your dog may naturally be a little stressed at having become separated from his owner, and may regard others trying to look after him with suspicion. Make sure any good Samaritans that find your dog stay safe by leaving the dog’s name on a tag – this will suggest to the dog that they are not a threat, and they may be more responsive commands such as ‘Sit’ should a name be used.
