Essential Information for Dog Tags

  1. Phone number: It's the most important thing to have on your dog's tag, because it's the quickest, and most direct way for someone to reach you if your dog gets lost.

    1. Medical Needs: Adding medical details to your dog's tag is highly recommended. This helps anyone who finds your dog give the right care, increasing the chances of a safe and swift reunion with you. Plus, it can deter potential thieves and keep your dog safe. A common phrase is "Needs meds."
    2. Microchip Information: Microchipping adds extra protection in case your dog loses its collar and tag. You can simply mention "Microchipped" or "Microchip" on the dog tag. This tells people to take the dog to a vet or shelter to scan for the microchip.

    Optional but helpful details to include on the dog tag

    1. Your address: Including your address on an ID tag is helpful if someone nearby finds your dog. However, it's optional because you can give them your address when they contact you.
    2. Your dog’s name: Putting your dog's name on a dog tag is a personal choice. Some argue that it makes it easier for someone to "steal" your dog if found, as the finder can use the name to bond with them. Others believe that it won't stop a thief since if they can read your dog's tag, they might be close enough to take them anyway.
