All dogs should be outfitted with some form of identification so that you can find him if he ever gets lost. You have a few different options to choose from. The most common form of identification is an ID tag on your dog's collar. You can purchase one at most of the major pet retailers. You should always include the pet's name and your name, address, and contact number. You can also choose to tattoo an identification number on your dog that shows either your social security number or his kennel club registration number. This tattooed number then gets placed on a national registry. An excellent way to ensure that your dog gets identified is to microchip him. A veterinarian can do this procedure and it takes less than a few minutes. Animal shelters will typically scan a dog that gets lost. That way, you can be contacted once your dog is found.
