The information to be put on the Medal for dogs
If your dog gets lost or escapes, the good Samaritan who will find his path will be first reflex to watch if he wears a medal.
To avoid that person to pass by a veterinarian or the mounted police to identify your pet, here are several information that can appear on the Medal for dog:

-The name of your town of residence

The medal is originally made for the name of the dog that the door. It is easier to bring the dog to itself by calling it by its name.
But the adverse effect is that an attacker can steal a dog much easier by knowing its name!
