Tattoo Your Dog

September 6th 2010 18:46

This is a different method to show love that's for sure. In the first picture, the Chihuahua definitely sports fake tattoos, but the boxer with his ear tattooed, to the right, sports a real tattoo, that his owner did himself (as seen in the video below).

This is not something that is recommended by most veterinarians or pet keepers, and may even be seen as abusive, but personally, we do it for identification, so why not for pleasure...

Because it's selfish... We get tattoos because we know what we're getting into. When you have a pet tattooed for pleasure, it's selfish because the dog doesn't care whether it has a tattoo or not.

Some people will tattoo an identification number on the dog's belly or ear, but this is similar to a microchip in case the dog is stolen or lost. I actually know of two Basenji dogs that got loose from their home. The dogs were picked up by animal control, but upon arrival, the animal control officers noticed that both dogs had tattoos on their bellies. The owners were located from the tattoos, and the dogs were returned.

I also know a reputable lab breeder who competes in various competitions with each of her 10 labs. These dogs are very popular in the labrador community, and each are not only microchipped, but they have tattoos on their bellies.

Official tattoos for dogs are one thing, but when it comes to tattooing a dog for pleasure and aesthetics, that's a whole other story.

If you want to have your dog tattooed, you want to contact the National Dog Registry or Tatoo-A-Pet at 800-TATTOOS in order to follow proper procedures and registration.
