Well... what about when it rains and your dog is wearing a USB flash drive? Water + electronics = no good. that cap ain't gonna stop the water either.

thats only if it gets enough water to corrode it. as long as you don't plug it in while it's wet, it should be fine

We order tags off eBay. Cheap and easy.

This (the isn tag) is an interesting idea, but it makes more work for the "dog finder". Also, if they're outside with your dog and they've only got a cellphone handy...well, you get the idea.

Apologies for my negativity. This is a novel idea.

I still think the laser etched tag is cheaper & more reliable. Back it up with a microchip in case the collar is lost. Even if a dog is deliberately kept by someone, a vet will scan the chip and contact you.

i like this idea a lot. its not perfect, but its better than others, and it shows the owner cares.
