It can never be emphasised enough that having a collar and tag on your dogcouldsave their life! It is required by law in most parts of the country that your dog wears a collar and is microchipped, so that in the event your dog goes on a big adventure, they can be returned to you.
Microchipping is also required by law, as stated by the RSPCA: “Section 10C of the Domestic Animals Act 1994 requires cats and dogs to be microchipped as a condition of registration (which is compulsory once the animal is 3 months of age).”
Should your pup become lost, vets, animal shelters and local councils can scan these details and contact you; make sure these details arealwaysup to date!
But adding another layer of protection via a visible physical Dog Collar Tag is your lost dog’s best defence for returning safely home should they ever get lost. When your dog is found wandering 3 streets away, they can quickly be returned directly to you which saves them going to the vet/ council pound.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO INCLUDE
The more information you include on his tag, the better, such as:
Your dog’s name - (so everyone can know the good boi’s name!)
Two phone numbers - (In case one person is at work/ their phone is off)
Address - (so they can be walked home if it’s not far)
Medical issues - for example, if your dog needs insulin the person finding your dog will know they need to find home immediately!
