Don't they put some kind of identification mark on dogs they board? Sort of like the bracelet hospital patients get?

It could have been avoided with the use of collars, tags or microchips.

How can you not know your own dog?

The one time I had to board my dog there was absolutely no mistaking him when we picked him up, he was as excited as we were.

This guy did know his own dog... the problem is that there were 4 dogs there, according to more recent reports, that looked almost IDENTICAL to each other.
As to the 'collar' thing... haven't you ever heard of boarding kennels taking the dogs collars off in order to give them a bath... I've seen dogs come out of the kennel with the wrong tag many times.
As to the microchip thing.... a lot of people don't want to get that implanted in their dog because they do not believe it is safe yet..... I don't think that, my dog is microchipped, but some people still do believe that because there is not enough evidence proving they are safe.

Read the whole story! The kennel took the dog collars off all of the animals during playtime.

This is a link that tells all about the microchip program that is already in place, not 00% they have prices on there though.
