A dog has become a fashion statement just as children used to be.
Nowadays, instead of taking your child out in public to show him off, you keep him locked up in his room, or under heavy security to keep him safe.
That is the pathetic truth about what our society has come to.
We used to dress our kids up in all the latest fashions and parade them around the boulevard.
Now we take our dogs.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
We love our dogs as much as we love our children.
But have you ever considered that your dog is as much at risk as your child? Kidnappers nowadays are more likely to grab your pet because of easier access.
A quality designer dog collar will make identification of your pet easier.
You have to admit, even though you think your precious baby is the cutest in the world, she looks quite similar to other dogs of her breed.
A designer dog collar can put quite a damper on the dognappers plans.
If they try to dispose of it, the police will be able to trace it back to them right away.
If they try to sell it, the police will be on them even faster.
Implanting your pet with a radio frequency identification chip is a very good idea.
The chip contains all of your information, such as name, address and telephone number, as well as the medical history of your dog.
Letting the vet know immediately who the dog belongs to and what shots she has received.
Although an RFID is not as attractive as a designer dog collar, it is very practical.
Dognappings, just as kidnappings, tend to go awry.
Your pet will be accidentally killed.
In this case the dognappers will try to replace your pet with another dog of the same breed.
The RFID will tell you immediately if the pet is yours or the victim of a switch.
