What do you put on tags?

Postby MaisyPancakes » Sun Jan 06, 2019 1:36 pm

Hey guys, I'm thinking that MPW seriously needs her own real tags instead of this janky temporary thing I made before she had a name!! :eek2: What all do you put on yours? I was thinking:

DOGNAME
Chip ID: XXXXX
(123)123-4567
email@address.com
CITY
STATE

I used to put my name and home address, but kept reading that it's a wasted use of space. :whistle: Is it??

What do you all think? Thanks! :)

Maggie has her name, my home phone number and my cell phone number. I have read you shouldn't put the dog's name on it either, as a thief may be able to lure her away, convince others the dog is his/hers, etc. But I put it on anyway.
Mom to Maggie. Ever remembering Sadie, Charley, Caleb, Belle, Oliver, Shiloh, Eddie, Mitzi, Allie and Emma.

Thanks, Jean! :) I read that, too, about the dog's name...but like you, I was not convinced that it is such a risk. :/

I have the dog's name, 2 different phone numbers (both set up to send copies of voice mail to my email), and "microchipped".

Thanks, Sabine! :) I like simple tags, but ended up putting all the stuff because kept thinking dumb things ("What if they hate the phone and won't call?") :wink: I ordered 6 for the go-to collars/harnesses, and will put an extra one as a keychain. Nuttin' gets lost now! :grin: I love those plastic Boomergang ones!

I don't put the dog's name because I have multiple dogs and I want to be able to put a tag/collar on any of them without worrying 'is this the right name.'

I have my cell phone number, and the word (in all caps) REWARD on each tag.

The ones I have right now say “I’M LOST! CALL MY FAMILY PLEASE!” With our address and two cell numbers. I debated over all the suggestions. No names, add names, put “NEEDS MEDS”, etc. Like Connie, I like being able to swap collars around without stressing.

Thanks, guys! :) I should've just put "PLZ GO TO ODO & SAY YOU HAVE ONE OF THEIR BROWN DOGS!!!" ;) :grin:
