What info do you put on your dog's tags?

There's a discussion on my other board about what information you put on tags. Very interesting points being brought up.

I never put my dogs' names or my address on tags. I don't want anyone knowing their names or where I live. So on one side I have a medic alert symbol, (everyone's familiar with it and they don't even have to know how to read ), and the other side has only two phone numbers and "I'm microchipped" on it. No address and no names on the tags. They're not necessary, IMO.

What info do you put on your dog's tags?

Mine, have their current license and rabies tags.

They have a tag with the microchip number and the 800 number for the microchip company. This so if someone finds my dog, they can call the microchip company without needing a scanner to read the tag.

Their other tag has their breeders kennel name and phone number. If I am unreachable, away of vacation or something, there is always someone at the breeders to look after her dogs.

They have a tag with the cottage address and phone number, and the usual times of the year we are there.

I found a golden wandering my neighborhood the other day. He had tags with the owners land line and cell phone and address. It was really nice. I made a quick call to her cell and she came right over to pick him up. They lived 5 blocks away. Had he not had that information I would have taken him to animal control and it would have taken a lot more time for the owner to get him back.

I understand about privacy though. My dogs have no information on them because they tear off each others tags when they play.

Max has a tag with his name and our last name, and our home number and my cell number. He has another tag that has his micro chip information, plus an AKC tag that has that information. Plus a his license tag.

Overkill, I guess.

I put their name, 2 phone #'s and "Microchipped". I didn't used to put the name on them because I didn't want the info out there but I decided if Ky was lost she would "maybe" feel safer if the person that found her knew her name.

Call Name
My Name
Town & State
My cell phone #
The main house telephone #

I have called owners of dogs found in my area, since I live in a heavily wooded area - it is much better to be able to contact the owners directly .. and have been yelled at by AC for calling & waking them (8am waking them???) so my primary concern is getting my dog(s) back.

I would know what to do with a tag that was labeled 'micro-chipped' but I doubt most people would know to bring the dog to a vets to be scanned if they saw that on a tag.
