Four button, like an electronic watch.

There are two not easily visible, and the other two on the front that the person who finds the dog would automatically push. See them on either side of the logo "dogE-tag" ?

After you enter and "save" your settings, all it does is backlight your information when the front buttons are pushed. All 40 lines will automatically scroll! And it is easy to change info, once you figure it out. Which I did!

You can even lock it up with a PIN number.

That's a good deal on the Bean site, just a little over $20 including shipping. There are lots of different colors available on other sites but the cheapest price I could find was $35.

Its getting time for us to head south to the Florida State rally. A few years back while in Florida I took off to do some shopping, what should have been a 30 minute trip turned into a several hour event. When I got back to the campground Carol was beside herself. What if something had happened to you? Well the hospital is just around the corner I guess they would have taken me there. What if you were unconcious how would they have know how to get in touch with me? Well now I hadn't ever thought about that before. Accidents do happen all the time, so I now include in my billfold next of kin and her cell phone number. If we are staying at one location for an extended period as we have done in the past I also include the town and park that we are in. That little dog tag looks neat for the pup but it might also work well for the adults and kids when traveling. Slip one of the tags on the key ring.

Jack, you've MET me.
I can do twenty dollars worth of spazzing out in a minute or so, just on general principle, so imagine what would happen if I lost my doggie!!!

The tag is definitely just added insurance on finding her, or at least letting people jknow she's handicapped.

It WAS twenty bucks, and I think well spent; I bought two, one for each girl. It's almost like they have their own doggie PDAs :-)

I like the idea of the additional information also. We have one pooch who has some hearing loss and due to something in his past (we got him from a senior pet rescue) and doesn't want anybody playing with his eyes or teeth. As a matter of fact we have to give him a "be calm" pill when we send him to the groomer to get clipped. It would have been nice to have known his orginal name but no one knows. A tag may have helped.

Outcome is good but what a sad surgery for this year old pup. This is usually hereditary though no other pup has this out of any offspring so we are all a bit stymied!

I wish I never had to know "what the heck" this is either and so does Ernie but he is doing great. We begin doggie PT next week (never knew that existed) but he is back to his tricks as this pic shows him stealing my baby grandsons bottle this week!

LOL....who knows!

Tag plus implants sound like good insurance though I also fear someone just keeping him. Great idea to mention the airstream on tags too as there's rarely more than one AS per site (us) where we have camped so far here out west.

Still would be cool to have something that beeps on his harness that could transmit to a device I could carry and set off if he went missing...I'm sure if not available someone will come up with it as there's much $ to be made off all of us when it concerns safety for our precious pets!

Great thread BTW!

Ernie is a DOLL. Dogs gave NO attention span, and JRTs are worse than most, so Ernie has forgotten all about his surgery and is most likely going to LOVE therapy

Think of all the attention he'll get :-) You KNOW he'll suck THAT up.

He's very lucky to have you to do all of this for him.

So why can't he go camping?

DONE DEAL.... I just added it to their E-tags.

You might think an E-tag is a frivolous item, but actualy it serves a purpose.

I'll let you know how he loves therapy, it's an underwater doggie treadmill that maybe I should sign up for too!

Till he can support himself on all 4's we are keeping him quiet as this surgery can take 3-6 months to recover from, with complete recovery up to a year! He barely touches the ground with his right hind leg so he's a ways from camping but the PT should help along with icing 3x's a day and staying on doggie ibuprofen for a bit.

Thanks for your sweet words!

When it comes to our babies we can never be too cautious.

Although the e-tag is a great idea - there is always that chance that the battery fails - and poof there goes the information - so it would not be something to rely on soley of course...

We have one dog that is chipped through "Pet Net" and one that is Tattooed. But the one thing that is mandatory is the Rabies shots and the TAG that accompanies it .

The Tags in Canada are sponsored by Merial that provides a lost/found FREE program called "getmehome" http://www.getmehome.ca

The Website and telephone number are on the Tag along with the Vet Clinic info too.

A simple phone call will get you all the information you need - you enter your own profile and as much information needed to get your sweetie home safe.

It is horrible to have a lost dog - we lost Taz the first time we took her into a Regional Forest - she got turned around and we spent 1.5hrs looking for her!!!

Haily also got lost on her first big forest adventure in our back yard - she got turned around and lost sight of us and we her. After lots of calling and heart racing - I headed for home and Peter stayed out in the bush - turns out we had a very smart puppy - she traced her steps back to the house - over a 2 mile hike away - popped open the front door and had a snooze waiting for us to find her!

Both dogs now when off lead don't go too far with out stopping and looking back to see where we are. They each have a bell on their collars so we can hear them as well as see them.

Our biggest fear would be Theft!

Thanks for the Hint - we just updated our file and added our WBCCI# on their files - there is also an option for a photo.

If you happen to be close to a computer when you find a dog that has a Rabies Tag all you have to do is enter the information on their web site and a profile on the dog will come up. But there is always the phone too.

Not in America!

The person who found the dog would have to have the smarts to look up the County, (anmd maybe State) muddle through the phone menu, and then what???

Our local County Animal Control is VERY hard to get ahold of, I had to make several attempts last week just to find out how to TRANSFER Rabies tags for my new girl.

The tag is supposed to have a "low battery" indicator,and original the battery is supposed to last two years.

It does say when you change the battery, it shousd go to a jeweler or a place that does watch batteries professionally because of the waterproof seal.

It also says that you have less than 30 secs to put the new battery in before your info is lost.
