I’m not sure I’ve heard of “Responsible Dog Owner Month” before, but apparently that is what September is now. What do you think makes a responsible dog owner?
To me, it’s making sure your dog has everything it needs including food, water, exercise, proper vet care, training, and attention. Did I miss anything?
I received an article from ZuluTails, that I planned to skim and file, but it’s actually an interesting product. It’s a company that helps track your pet if they are lost. This one is only $19.99 per year for the first pet, with discounts for multiple pets. Seems pretty reasonable to me.
Many people have microchipped their pets these days, which is great, but you need a vet or shelter to read the microchip. Data can also be hard to update with a microchip service, so pet parents may move and forget that their pet’s chip lists an old address.
ZuluTails provides a collar or tag with a code called UPI – Universal Pet Identifier. Their embroidered collar has the ZuluTails website and the unique UPI for your pet. The tags come with the same information as the collar, but they also add a QR code that can be scanned with a phone if someone finds your pet.
If your pet is lost and someone finds it, they just go to the website and type in your pets UPI, or scan the QR code, and they can enter their contact info so that you are alerted they have your pet and then you can contact each other to get the pet home safely.
The thing I like about this system is there aren’t delays with getting vets, police, or shelters involved. It seems like this system would help get a lost pet back to its owners really quickly.
Here’s some more information directly from ZuluTails:
We have moved beyond the electronic age and now live in the virtual realm- and the pet industry is no exception. It’s crucial that we covet our personal and private information (PII) since perpetrators, phishing tactics and automated exploitations are always lurking, taking advantage of situations when we are distracted and motivated by emotion to care for our loved ones and our pets.
Health, safety and security are a top priority when it comes to owning a pet, and innovative company ZuluTails is revolutionizing the industry and celebrating responsible dog (and pet) ownership!
