Does Your Dog Wear Tags Or Are They Chipped

For id purposes, which one do you use? I have my dogs chipped, but also have their tags on their collars when they are out.

The Hooligans are chipped ... except when we're on vacation I don't allow them to wear collars.

Both. If I were to lose the mutt monsters, I'd want the tags on the collars so helpful people could contact me directly instead of taking them to a shelter, and I'd want the chips as backup in case the collars or tags came off.

I'm actually doubly careful to keep their collars on when we're on vacation -- that's when I'm most worried that they might get lost and not be able to find their way back.

I use both. Ammo is chipped but I ordered tags for him in case he gets loose and the person who finds him doesn't look for a chip.

Both, but Mikko only wears a collar when we're out or driving in the car.

it's not a matter of running away. dogs can get lost. they can be stolen. you could have a car accident and the dogs get loose.

I have tags on the collar and microchip.

Bianca was tattooed(by the breeder), microchipped and always had a collar with several types of ID tags when we were out. My previous dogs were tagged and microchipped.

When on vacation I used to use a bag with written info on where/when we were staying on my previous dog before I had a cell phone. Now I just make sure I have a tag on them that includes my cell number. Bianca had a Boomerang Tags Collartag that had my home, cell, and vet phone numbers (labeled).
I also had IDs on my dogs seatbelt harnesses that included emergency info for when traveling in the car.

Mine would never run away either! If I put him on the other side of the fence, he would figure out how to get back- he is a super velcro dog. HOWEVER, it seems silly to not have any identification on a dog, what if you get into a car accident? There was an incident with a well-known agility trainer who got into a car accident and several dogs were tossed from the car and went missing.
