    Just checking --- do most hunters put a standard collar with ID tags on their dog when hunting the refuge? What about other times?

    I dont have a collar for my dog. He is very high jumper and i always worry he will get hung on something...

    I do have him chipped and use an e-collar in the field.

    It would kill me if i ever lost him... least of all the thousands invested in him... has me thinking it is time for a ID collar

    No question, I always put an ID collar on my dog when we go hunting. Never lost one, but anything could happen. I did have that one I would have been cool with if he had run away:rolleyes:

    Our dogs are with us 24/7, so we don't use regular collars. but they are chipped.
    Regardless, if you do use a standard collar, DO NOT put the dog's name on it.

    I use an e collar when I hunt. I put an ID plate on the strap. It has my email, home phone and a cell number.

    You can buy the ID plates from lots of places. I think gun dog supply has them. Harry

    My pup is chipped. His cloth collar has my cell number woven in it. Most times hunting he has a orange vest on that also has my cell number on it.

    I taught my lab to say my name and phone number. She's an average lab.......probably wouldn't work with other breeds :no

    Agreed, don't put the dogs name. Just put your name and number and then put needs medication.
