Most every dog owner has ID tags on their dog's collar, some have their dogs microchipped and others have a digital ID tag with a QR code. It is every pet owner's worst nightmare to have their pet go missing, get lost or escape the house, backyard or while out on a walk. The thought of it just makes my heart break. You might be thinking and ID tag and a microchip is good enough and it may very well be but.....
I recently met (through a Facebook group) a woman in Beverly Hills, CA who owns a company called The Emergency Tag Company. She has been in business for 20 years and she helps reconnect pets with their owners with the Emergency Tag.
What is the Emergency Tag?
1. ID tag
3. The Emergency Tag- a vital backup when you can't be reached.

Recently I surveyed some of our wonderful 2 legged clients asking them what is important to them when it comes to choosing pet care for their fur kids. An overwhelming 81% said that experienced dog walkers and sitters were very important when deciding who will care for their pets. When hiring new staff I look for those who not only have dogs and cats of their own but also have worked with pets in the past. For example, Sue is a vet tech, Michelle has countless hours in dog rescue and Mike is a zookeeper!
