    No I don't. I like the thought of it but in reality it doesn't give much of a benefit as a lot of dogs come anyway I find :D

    My boy's has on it 'If you find me please contact __________ on ___________' and on the second side it has 'I live at __________(with my full address on)____'.

    I think if you have space you could do but some people express concern at others knowing your dog's name and it being easier to pinch them or claim its their dog on the micro chip details etc. I don't know how likely that is at all, but I don't put his name on anymore.

    Roo has another Petlog purple tag which says 'I'm Chipped' on.

    How about Heidi's? :)

    No cos collars are interchangable in my house and it it fits it gets shoved on their necks so they all just have phone numbers and chipped & neuteured. :thumbup:

    I just got a tag for Meg - with her name and my mobile number on it ... didn't know what else to put ... She is chipped. If I take Meg's collar off she gets panicky cos it means "shower" and that's a terrible thing!

    I'm a total cop out :scared:

    I dont like the idea of my tel no. and details flapping about on my dog's neck for all to see, so she has the old fashioned ones with the piece of paper screwed up inside l:thumbup: It has my surname, house no, postcode, mob and home tel no's
    Bought her a disc because everyone has them but she only wore it briefly because I just didnt like it.
    Totally stupid I know :rolleyes:

    Nope. We have our surname and contact number on there.

    And on Ruby's tag it says the same with "i'm blind" added to it.

    We used to have the twisty barrel things with the paper inside but they were always falling apart and untwisting themselves. Luckily they never lost them on a walk but the amount of times i've found them in the garden is just silly so we got tags instead, they're much harder to lose lol plus, some people might not know what it is and assume they don't have any ID so personally I find a tag much better :)

    Holly has 2 tage. On her main one her name is on one side, then on the other, my house number, postcode, and my mobile number. Then an I'm chipped tag.

    She has another name tag for when at my OH's, but he put his full addy and mob on.

    Mine don't have their names on but I don't get the "easier to steal" thing.

    What does that mean? That the thief knows the right name to call the dog?? But if he's got close enough to read the name, he's got hold of the dog anyway!

    Both mine have their name and 'Microchipped' on one side and our address and landline phone number on the other side.

    I've no worries about them being stolen, they're crossbreeds :)

    Went thro a spate of loosing them. Coming home and finding just the top of the screw section attached to her collar. Sorted that by giving it a quick tighten before I let her off the lead. Then we went through the "lets lose the whole thing" stage as I'm sure discs must get lost when the little link that attaches them waves bye bye. Soooooooooooo she now has a bigger chunk of metal attaching it to her collar and so far - so good.

    Think I may have to paint "ID in here" on the outside or, to h*ll with it, wear the blinking disc :lol:
