    Default what information to put on dog tags

    So im looking to get my new guy a dog tag, but not sure what I should put on it. Some people say put a name, some say dont. Some say address, some say they dont want strangers coming. I know my cell phone is a must. What do you guys put on your dog tags?

    Name and phone number. That's it. The tag is simply something that identifies the dog and a contact info in case the dog is lost. Bullie is also microchipped so in her tag is her name, my phone number, and the word "MICROCHIPPED" on it.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    I agree with everyone. My boxer was chipped and had tags on when she ran away...and then somehow got her collar off, so the tags did me no good.
    I put all of the information listed above and more. I put her vet information as well as my name/# and Linnet's #. Great thread! Hopefully will help others with this decision who might not have ever thought of it.

    Thats so smart to put Microchipped on the tag! I never thought of that. Thanks for the great tip

    i found this to be helpful. http://www.gundogsupply.com/importan...formation.html. He proves some really good points about not putting the dogs name since it would be easy for a thief to act like its owner since the dog would respond to him. I think my tag will be something like 1. Needs daily Meds 2.My name 3. City, state 4. my name 5. my cell #. I will definitely get the dog microchipped. I saw really cool dog tags that are actually usb dongles and you can put a lot of information about the dog in it. Pretty cool!

    We use the tags made by PetHub. They've got a design on one side and a QR Barcode on the other. You scan the barcode with a smart phone and it takes you to their site where you can add information such as address, name, contact info, rabies #, microchiped information, medical needs, names of medicine, etc. We really like it as an alternative to a tag that only allows for a few lines of information.

    I made my own at the engraving kiosk at PetSmart. The machine is so cool and inexpensive (good for other stuff as well, like luggage tags) anyway... You can put a lot of info on them. I put "If Found Call IMMEDIATELY cell number" I also put "microchipped", "special needs" and "spayed" for my female. I put special needs as my dogs are soooo cute, the finder would most likely want to keep them so I wanted to discourage that and give idea that they cost $$$ in vet / meds. Also I didnt but, should have put on the other side "I will go to the ends of the earth and never stop til I find my dog, so you may as well return her now !!).

    @gracoliv that's a really good idea to say they are fixed and special needs on their tags, I think I will be making a trip this weekend to Petsmart to make 3 new tags for my bullies! Right now I have their name, my cell, address, and my name on their tags but I think I like the idea of not having their names on it!
