Hi All! Just looking to get some info from experienced people on what info is best put on dog ID tags. I was on some other website a few days ago (can't remember which one, which is what happens when you troll,lol!) and people were getting quite passionate about NOT including micro chip numbers for reasons of security. Of course, as a former investigator, I could argue that including the very necessary contact phone number or address is a security risk in today's world but then you have to put something on the tag or it's just pretty decoration. There are some tags that use both side and permit 4 lines per side. So..... what do most of you include on your tags?
Another thing I always put on is “REWARD”, some engraved tags have both front and back engraving. I also bought a really nice leather branded one with my dogs name and phone number worked into it, really awesome quality off an eBay seller, there are lots, here is one listing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Saddle-Tan-Leather-Dog-Collar-Your-Dogs-Name-1-wide-Hand-Tooled-G-E/381520270584?hash=item58d46154f8:g:R4YAAOSwux5YP46M
I don't think more than a number is necessary personally
What if your dog got out while you are unavailable? Cell phones occasionally are out of range, run out of batteries. A 2nd number could keep someone from saying forget it and dumping in a shelter.
