Our pets are our pride and joy and that is why it is so incredibly surprising to me that there are so many dogs and cats running around without nametags. It is a pity that so many pets get injured and lost because their owners don’t take the time to invest in a nametag. Remember that your pet is one of a kind and it would be really difficult to imagine life without it. Nametags aren’t that expensive and by purchasing one you could save your pet’s life. Take a look at lost pet statistics here.
In some countries it is actually the law to have tags on your pets. It is for your dog’s safety and perhaps anyone that your pets might attack. If your dog bites someone they need to be able to identify your dog and they need to know where to contact the owner. Proof of vaccinations would be necessary as the person who got bit needs to go for rabies tests. Animals tend to roam; it is their nature to do so. We take them in as our pets and we make an unsigned promise that we will take care of them and provide for them but we fail to do by not giving them a nametag.
If my precious pooch goes missing I want someone to contact me if they find him and I want the peace of mind that my name is around his neck with my contact number. I have recently checked https://www.yippr.com/collections/led-dog-collars and found a collar that is actually lit up with LED lights. I have the peace of mind that my dog is always visible. I like to take a walk with him at night and if he wonders of the pavement I know that passing cars will see him clearly.
The worst thing that happened to me was that my dog wondered off and the dog catcher got hold of him. They are only doing their job but it was very traumatic for my dog and for me. Luckily he had a nametag on his collar and I was contacted immediately to pick him up. We cannot always keep them safe and for this reason we should do everything we can to control the situation even if they are outside our boundaries. Another important reason to give your pet a nametag is that if something tragic does happen you might be contacted about it. It will never be good news but it will be better than not knowing where your animal has disappeared to.
Other than that you want your dog to belong. He or she is family after all so they deserve their tag and name. A collar and a nametag make the bonding ritual official and give your pooch a feeling of belonging. Click here to get tips on making your newly adopted dog feel at home.
