    I’ve been always had at least one K9 BFF while growing up. Unless overlooked, I didn’t read any article referring to ID tags. Countless times assisting anyone ISO their beloved K9; my FIRST question I ask owner re ID tag(s). More often reply is, “no”. My corgi has 3 different ID tags affixed to her harness’ D ring (also used for her leash. (1) tag ordered off of form from her vet. Includes her name, my name, my ph # AND an 800#. I disclosed 2 additional #’s other than my own. The company calls #’s etc. (2) tag = proof of rabies vax (has assigned # & vet’s location & ph#. (3) tag has her microchip implant ID. IMO, ANY form of idea is paramount. I have purchased ID tags in the past with dog’s name, my ph#, and the third line read “REWARD” (all caps). There’s also a “pet amber” alert notification via smart phone. Good luck, just wanted to share some additional advice. Crazyhorse
