Did You Know
It is National Pet ID Week
April 15-21, 2018
We embrace the microchip concept for our OwyheeStar puppies. Every pup leaves with the AKC Reunite Microchip implanted. All our puppy family must do is to register their chip (pay a small lifetime fee) with AKC Reunite. Honestly, if you don’t register the microchip is probably not going to do much good.
Let’s not forget the 4th of July and the hoopla associated with it fills shelters to the brim. These hardworking folks do their best to get every pup back to their family; however, it is an arduous process. This one step does more than anything to get your pup back to and along with the ID collar increases your odds of return astronomically.
Did you register the microchip? We sincerely hope you did. Here is more information from AKC Reunite. Our experience has been positive–they are accommodating.
If a neighbor finds your dog, a pet ID tag is the fastest and most efficient way to be reunited with your pet. However, ID tags can fade or fall off, or your pet’s collar can be removed. This is when an enrolled microchip with up-to-date contact information links you and your pet to help ensure you are reunited with your lost or stolen pet.

We like to use road id for our tags. They lay flat on the collar and reduce the jingle from all the tags. 🙂 https://www.roadid.com/products/scout-stainless-large-elastic-pet-id
We use something similar to these for the same reasons. Thanks for pointing these out. As you say, they are a better choice for Large Breed Dogs–active Weimaraners. Ours a metal tags attached to the collar. Maybe it would be good to talk more about ID. Thanks again, for the comment. Dangly tags are not only noisy, but can come off–be swallowed, etc.
