|Hi everyone. I posted this in the Pomeranian forum and then decided to cross post here as my problem is really a small dog problem, not just a Pom problem.
I'm a new pomeranian owner. I've had Alaskan Malamutes and American Eskimos in the past, obviously much bigger dogs, so this wasn't an issue for me before.
Joey Butters just got his rabies shot last week and the tag is HUGE. He hates it, but I've been hoping he would get used to it. Then today, he got it caught in the heating vent in our floor. One of his little feet was caught in there too when he tried to get himself out of it. He started shrieking and then my other dog and cat started going berserk. It was a bad situation that could have gotten ugly quick.
Thankfully this happened in the hallway right at the door to my home office and I was right there. (He hangs in my office while I work, so I don't crate him because I thought it was puppy proofed.) I was able to get his foot out and his collar off to free him from the vent. I haven't put his collar back on yet because I don't know what to do with that huge rabies tag.
Can I order a smaller replacement tag for the rabies tag? Does anyone put the tags on their pom's harness when walking instead of on the collar? (Joey wears a little collar around the house, but he wears a harness when we walk outside.)
I know he needs a tag on him in case he gets outside, but I can't have him wearing that massive tag he came home from the vet's with.
What do you small dog owners do about the tag situation? Name tags? Rabies tags? Dog license tags?
