Pet Parade - Blanket Pod Pet ID









Hiya everyone!
Welcome to the Pet Parade blog hop!
Were having a PAW-ty today with our Fab host Rascal and Rocco,
joined by 4 amazing co hosts : Jan's Funny Farm, Bionic Basil, Barking from the Bayou, and me, Love is being owned by a husky!

Link up to parade your fav photos, share stories or just hop around to see what other bloggers are doing today. No rules, cause that's how we like it, but it is always nice to link back to your hosts.

A very special invitation to our PAW-ty goes to Blanket ID, pet identification. 

What is Blanket ID you ask?

You all know I have touched on how imPAWtant it is to have proper ID for your pets, should they get lost. Today I bring you another great way to keep ID on your pets, while keeping in style as well!
Introducing the Blanket ID pod.





The Blanket ID pod is a small container, which holds a weather resistant slip of paper, which you can add all of your contact info to. Ex : Your pets name, address, phone number, etc...




You stylishly add it to your pets collar, and it looks super cute too!
Blanket ID has tons of other items as well, so I encourage you to check out their site, however today we will focus on the pod.

The pod comes in 4 colors :
Orange, silver, purple and dark grey.
We chose silver.
I was happy with how small the pod was when I received it in the mail. I actually expected it to be a little bigger, which I was worried about, because when something is to dangley on my dogs collars, they like to chew! It is about 1inch long.

Let me take a moment to explain Blanket ID.

When you purchase your pod for $9.99 you are automatically entitled to a one year free membership to Blanket ID. You can choose to pay a couple dollars more for a longer membership PLUS Blanket ID will donate towards supporting animal welfare.

Why would you need a membership for an ID item?

This is the best part! When you purchase one of their items you get what is called a Blanket ID number. You then go to blanketid.com to register your pet(s) and create a poster with your dogs info on it. This way, your pet is "in the system." If your pet gets lost, you can print off your poster PLUS when you report your lost pet to blanket, they notify your local shelters, animal control etc...with a photo of your pet.

Koda was our model for the parade today, with his silver pod.
Here is his poster. ( I have blocked out my personal info)




You can print the poster off and plaster it all over town, should your pet ever get lost.

Now . . . Blanket ID claims that this pod is water proof. And I thought, how great is that?
I am one that will take my huskies for a walk, rain or shine, as well as going down to the beach quite often!

BUT . . .

I was not about to tell my readers that this product was water proof, without testing that theory!
I am proud to be able to give my very honest opinion of a product for you all, and the only way I can do that, is by first testing it for myself.

SO, I went to work. Check out this short video.




I did the video short and sweet, but I did keep the pod submerged in the water for longer, before I recorded.


Right about now, you must be wondering, "how does Koda look in his new pod?"
Of course you are!


 This last photo (below) was an epic fail of a photo, but I just had to post it!
Here we are, in the middle of the photo shoot, when Koda decides to start howling!
That's what I call Just WOO-ing it!
I'm sure in human translation, his howls were meant to say "thank you for my new pod mama!"

Did you know that 1 in 3 pet owners will lose their pet at one time or another?
Research shows that due to lack of space in shelters, sadly, pets get euthanized as early as 72 hours after arriving. Many times, this can be prevented if pets have proper ID. This enables the shelter to contact the owner of the pet. (Info Source)

Before you all start rushing to blanketid.com to purchase a pod for yourselves, read on!

  7. Very cool product. Many people don't know to look for a microchip and this product has all the pertinent info right on the paper which is nice. The video not only demonstrates that it's water proof but also showed how small it is, and not at all bulky. Koda is a perfect little model! If I won I would like a purple pod.

    1. If there is one thing I can say I am proud of with my blog, it is the ability to test out products before I will rave about how good they are. I refuse to take the companies word for anything. Nothing works better then testing things yourself!!!
      Purple is a great color! Good luck!

  19. The Blanket ID is such a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I totally support any way of ensuring your pets are identified. Microchips are important but this product is great in that it allows the person finding the pet to get them home again. It's very sad to hear dogs may be euthanised within 72 hrs. Here in Australia, pounds and shelters must by law keep an animal for 8 days before making a decision, giving owners a bit longer to search for their furkids.

    1. That's great!
      I'm glad you like the product! I thought it was so cool as well, that you can have a Blanket ID right on their website! It would help so much in this situation.

  21. I love anything that helps you find your dog if they go missing. I have been hung up on that since mine got away last year. Sounds like a great product and something I would be very interested in. If we would win, I would want it in Purple, of course. Thanks for a great contest!

    1. Yours got away last year? Did you get her back? I sure hope so, if not, I am so so sorry :/

  22. What a clever idea! I love the orange because it would stand out. It is smaller than I would have first thought too....couldn't really tell until you showed it on Koda!

    1. Yep, that's why I took the photo like that. To show the size of it beside his other tags.
      Orange is a great color too! It would stand out nicely on any of your pups!

  23. Those are so cute! And such a good idea especially if your pet has special medical needs.
