ID Tattooing??

Does anyone have this on their dogs, or have had it done?
I have some questions on it. Where do you get it done? Does the vet usually do it? Do you just pick the number you want? Does ADBA/UKC assign you a number? Where do they usually put the tattoo?

Also is it a good idea?

ANY information would be helpful!
Thanks.

I've seen a tattoo i.d. on a dog but it was a hound and it was on the inside of the ear. I don't see what the difference would be between tattoo and a micro chip though.

I know on the paperwork there are spots to fill in the Tattoo #. I like the idea of it more than a microchip. My friends pit's chip accidently got registered to some Jack Russel in another state, hardly anyone changes microchip information either. My big guy Tank's chip still goes back to my friends and I've had him for five years, and I can't get it changed.
I like that tattoo # goes with the dog ON the paperwork, but I would like to know more information on wether or not its worth it.

I would think it's worth it if that's what you want to do. And you are right about not being able to change the info on a chip so I guess what would be the point if you ever lost him and the info is wrong. The tattoo # is on your papers. I asked a friend a min ago and she said that a vet is suppose to be able to do the tattoo. But like with ear cropping not all vets do it.

in Ca its pretty common. alot of people tattoo and chip their pitbulls because we have so much theft out here for this breed. i live in the bay area, and i would say 3 out of five owners have their pits tattooed and chipped. i am still thinking about it for kenya. most vets do not put the dogs asleep during the procedure if they are under a year, but if i do get kenya tattooed i would like to find a vet that will put her asleep. i def wouldnt want to be the guy tattooing a pitbull when its still awake. like FORPITS&GIGGLES mentioned i have seen intiails but mainly on "thug" owners. most registered dogs have a number, and i belive the reg. assigns u a number. in the ear if they are not cropped or on the thigh (closer to the belly so its not visible at shows) if the ears are cropped.

i think u should do it BedlamBully... more info and protection for ur pooches the better

Loki has a tattoo on her leg. They were offering it at the health clinic where she got her OFA stuff done. I know some tattoo artists will do it if you agree to muzzle and sedate. And there are also people who just do tattoos for dogs specifically. If you go to the NDR website, they might be able to help you find a tattooer. You can pick your own number, or I think you can have one generated for you. Some people tattoo the dog's registration number. And inside the thigh seems to be the most common spot for tattoos nowadays.

You can see part of her tat in this picture.

Yes I have seen the registration number tattood. I think it is better than a microchip personally but more expensive. For instance, if someone steals a dog, of course they probably won't take it to the vet, but if the dog is tattood somewhere, sometimes word can get out also it is more noticable. If a dog rolls over for someone to pet him/her, the person could notice the tattoo and if your dog is reported stolen and the tattoo is mentioned someone is bound to notice it sooner or later. My girl has the microchip, but I had a pit puppy stolen from me a year ago with a microchip and nope, never been found so far. He was my baby and now he is gone! That is why I keep Nevaeh glued to my hip.

dennispits will become famous soon enough
i thought about doing it with one of those small animal tatto outfits. the only thing is that with those you can only do it while they are very young. future litters we make will probably have them on em.

Can I ask why? I know how much it DOESN'T hurt to get ink done pesonally, so I'm not opposed. I'm not whole heartedly a fan of microchips. Those damned things are known to become encased with tumor. Think I's rather take my chances with the ink.

I know that some will put in on the inside of the mouth on the gum area.....like they tattoo horses.
Most of the people I know who do this are hunters that do competitions and are running their dogs.
We have a guy that will drop his 20 beagles off and then leave them...drives me crazy, but he is running the dogs and they eventually find their way back home. You just have to sit here and listen to baying for hours.
I guess when they run their dog's it is scent training right?

I think it is an excellent idea. I have a question though about not being able to change the info on a microchip. Are you saying that if I move or change my phone number, I can't have it updated?

No you could change that. I got Tank from some friends of mine so there wasn't like a bill of sale or anything and THEY didn't call the chip company to say they had sold the dog, so I can't get it in my name because I can't 'proove' he's my dog.

I know it doesnt hurt too, I have one. I just dont think I would do it to my dog, it sticks out like a soar thumb. I dont plan on losing my dog, and if he is stolen, I doubt I will see him again anyways. Just a matter of opinion, I dont think its cruel or anything, just think it looks tacky on a dog.
