    No. No names on collars either. I have "Needs Medication" and my phone numbers on their collars. I'm not giving my dogs names out to people who have no business knowing them. My truck and crates are about to become a mobile Fort Knox, more padlocks, crates are now affixed to the truck. I'm not going to make it easy for someone to take my dogs. Sometimes being paranoid is a good thing.

    I put Special Needs on all of their collars... No one wants a dog they might have to pay medications for. Same ith Medications My soon to be wife is a horse trainer and all her younger clients make fun of it

    No names. Same reason I don't put all the duck call, gun maker etc. decals on my truck. Why don't you just put a sign on it that tells a thief "There is more than likely a gun in this vehicle!"

    I had names on mine and took them off for this same reason. My dogs are the kind that would look at someone like the person had 2 heads if they didn't know their names. For this same reason I don't have their names on their collars- only my info.

    I only have 2 dogs, one black one yellow, so easy to tell them apart.
    But even if I get another dog or 2 and they are all the same color one day, - no names no titles.

    Exactly. I have nothing but dirt on my van, tinted windows, doesn't look like it or its contents are anything special.

    Do you change the license plates on your vehicles when you cross state lines? You know how the football rivalary is especially in the south.
