Just curious about what your feelings are about branding or tattooing your dogs?

Thanks for the comments.

After having a good dog stolen, I started branding all my hunting dogs.I brand pups at 6 months, and if I buy an older dog I will put my "iron" on them regardless of what "iron" they came with.
I have two dogs with "short cropped ear, two half circle freeze brand on the other, and a "half circle F" on a left rib." Jason, I know you know the first ear mark, and brand.
The Half circle F is mine. grin Duane

Actually most are inside the lip. Ears can be cut off easier than lips

Branding and tatooing are both old school. Microchip is the way to go.

I agree with branding dogs. When everyone can see that big white brand on thier hip, just keeps everyone honest. Even though niether one of my pups are branded, they will be soon. I also agree with microchipping, but seems like it would only help if your dog got picked up by animal control, not stolen. IMHO

Microchips may be state of the art, but a brand can be seen by all and a theft deterrent in itself. At the very least, if a branded dog gets stolen the sorry SOB gets a reminder every time he looks at the dog that the dog isn't his. Obaro

We have always tattooed our dogs on the ear with our initials and litter number. It actually help my buddy win a court case in which he had a dog stolen and the only proof he had was the tattoo in the dogs ear

What is the best location for a feeze brand on a dog?

Will a horse size freeze iron work well on shoulder of a medium size cur?

Tattoing, ear notching and branding are great theft deterrents/ dog identification. Im picky about what wears my name but ear notches and tattoos are great for pup ID.

same as some of the guys above, i like it just cause i think it will make someone think before they steal one with a brand on him, we use to tatto in the ear but you have to find him to look for the tatto, the brand is out there for everyone to see
