Default Dog Tag Information?

I'm getting ready to order tag collars for the Skinnies. They're nekkid most of the time except for walks etc., but I travel with them frequently and would hate for something to happen and them get loose or lost. Going with GDS brightly colored TufFlex (pink and red) so hopefully if someone DOES see them, they'll see the collars and recognize them as dogs, not deer (because I've honestly had someone ask me if Mimi was a 'baby deer' before).

What information do you include on your tags/plates?

I'm having GDS add a second plate on each collar. "Needs daily meds" on the top of both plates to hopefully add a sense of urgency to get them back to me. The first plate will list my first name, city and state (in case I'm out of state and someone gets lost), my cell and my work number. The second plate will include 'REWARD', my mom's first name and cell and each of their respective breeder's first name and cell numbers. Haven't ordered yet if anyone has a better suggestion!

Well I'm lame. My tags just have their names and my cell phone number. Happy's tag says "I am microchipped" but that was because I didn't know the rescue was going to send me her Avid tag.

Lol! My plan might be a little overkill!

I didn't think to put 'chipped' on either of them, I guess because if I found a dog I'd call the number(s) before taking them to the vet/shelter to get scanned?

I think I do over kill, too, when it comes to tags.

They have their rabies tag, county dog license tag, a scannable GPS Smart phone Pet ID tag by platinum pets, and a regular identification tag. Plus, both are microchipped.

Frankly, if anyone takes them and tries to keep them, they'll get what they deserve. I say this because this morning Lil' Sis got into the diaper pail /insertgrosspoopstoryhere

Yeah I just figured if I don't answer my phone or something then at least they know she has a chip, which for that I have alternate contact numbers as well.

I put microchipped on the tag purely so people know my dogs are permanently identifiable to prevent them from getting any ideas.

For her regular ID tag on her collar she wears 24/7 she has her name and my number (it's a teeny tag, so nothing else would fit!). On nameplate tags I put her name, my number and my mom's number, "reward if found and returned" and if there's enough room my address.

I'm bad and do the dog's name on there. Mine go..

Dog's Name
The Blanchards
Our phone number
City, State (Zip if it fits)
Microchipped

ETA, we have Boomerang Collar Tags. I like that I can easily switch them to whatever collar or harness they are wearing. No noise, no snagging. Love.

The ones I just ordered from GDS for Frodo, Siri, and Bailey say:

Dog name
phone 1
phone 2
REWARD

Most of the tags I have are generic without a name. They say:
I AM LOST
REWARD
phone 1
phone 2
phone 3
(I love Boomerang 1" tags, I can fit SO MUCH STUFF).

That being said... I have an excessive number of tags and some are a little different.

I might have as many tags as some people have collars. I should count those today.
