4 Ways to Tag Your Dog

Does your dog have an ID tag? Is it up-to-date? Does it have the Vet's Information? Does it function properly? Is it old and scratched beyond reading?

April 2nd is the American Humane Associations Every Day Is Tag Day™. Also, April 17th through the 23rd is National Pet ID Week. So let's take a moment to learn about our dog's tags.

What are the 4 Ways to Tag Your Dog?

  • Identification Tags - Every color and shape of Dog ID Tags are available to choose from. What's most important is that they contain your dog's name, your name, address and telephone numbers. A separate tag for any medical problems or medication is a good idea. And lastly, the Vet's name and number.

  • Collar - You'll need a place to put your custom ID tags. How about a Custom Embroidered Collar with your pet's name and your telephone number. This is sort of a back-up plan for the tags. Just in case the tags go missing, the collar will have contact information. Or, at the very least, you can use indelible ink to write your phone number.

  • Microchip - This is a very common step when adopting a dog. But, what may be forgotten is to update the information on the microchip. There are several microchip manufacturers and registries, so make sure to cover all your bases.

  • Tattoo ID System - OK, so a tattoo may seem overboard, but when in comes to your dog and their safety, it's just another step to consider. A tattoo code will be placed on the dog's ear or the inside of their thigh. The code can be registered with several different national organizations.

No one ever wants to think about their dog being lost, scared and alone. But, with a few simple steps you can ensure that your dog is safely returned to you if the unthinkable ever happens.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Dog Treats

Here's what our reviewers are saying about these Peanut Butter dog treats:

Krista says: "I made half with jam and half with cream cheese. My dogs loved them. I'm so happy I made them!!

and Angie says: "I have 5 goldens, aka "cheese monsters". I made these, but instead of jam .... used low fat cheese instead.

Wonderful! Thanks so much!"

Newsletter Feedback

Last month I asked if your dog would eat broccoli. I was amazed at the responses. Here are just a couple ...

Joy said: "My dogs love spinach, broccoli and most other vegetables. I know they do not digest carrots well so I give them Olewo Carrots and Beets for dogs. Both are good for digestion, coat and a lot of other things. My dogs love it when their kibble comes with the carrots and beets reconstituted and a tsp of plain yogurt on top. Since I started feeding the beets and carrots I have had almost no illness and I have 4 small dogs. I think feeding them veggies is a great idea! Thanks for the great suggestions and recipes."

Here are pictures of her crew Dillon, Dandy, Dory and MoJo:

Plus Mary Jo gave us a great tip for getting your dog to try a new homemade dog treat. She says:

"I have 3 dogs, if they think one of the others wants it, they will eat it. One, Max, is our “Mikey”. Max will eat most anything... lol"
