Mine have collars on.... I'd have them go nekid but when they went to the vet in oct for shots I asked them to scan for their microchips just for hahas... Well they found Lola's but not rusty's :(
it was once there so idk what happened but I guess I'll have to do it again :-/

I've never heard of tattooing them?

In Canada for years it's been standard practice to tattoo an ear or thigh with registration no. or an unique number issued by your vet; some vet offices are getting really creative and tattooing something pretty as well as a number! I'm going to microchip as well, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I think the tattoo a is great idea and obviously not likely to get lost like rusty's microchip... So strange... Wondering if when it was put in they just didnt do it right...who knows.

Lexi never wears her collar at home, I am one of those who worry what it could get caught on. I do put it on her whenever we leave the house for any reason as well as take her leash even if it's for a quick trip around the corner. If I had to get ahold of her out and about for any reason I want her collar on her.

The breeder tatooed Chanter inside his thigh...I can barely see it and I've heard that people may not know what to do with it (?). I have him microchipped as well.

Some of my dogs wear collars all the time, but no tags. I had a dog hang himself in his crate when his tag became caught in the wire door. I am so glad I came home in time to save him, but it wasn't easy. I get the cheap flat nylon collars for my short haired dogs and use a laundry marker to put my phone # on it. And, on my deaf dog, her collar says 'Deaf Dog' on it as well.

The poodles don't wear collars, but I take a picture of them every time their hairstyles change just in case they turn up missing I'll have current photos for missing dog signs and to prove they're mine. I just found out the local AC offers microchipping for $10, I'm going to have everyone done there now. (Sure beats the $50 my vet charges!)

None of ours wears a collar unless we are going out. Far too dangerous. I would be so easy for them to get caught on something and hang themselves.

Nickel doesn't wear a collar if he's crated. If he gets to run free, he always has his collar on until …. until I get my husband clicker-trained to remember to keep the door close.

Perhaps it would help to do what I did. Tell your dh that you are amending your marriage vows to read, "Until death do us part or until you allow for any harm whatsoever to befall even one hair on our poodle's head." I have my husband so well-trained to be mindful and watchful of Chagall in my absence, I think he sits with one hand on him at all times!
