3 Ways Your Dog Can Go Missing
- Let out your door – As simple as it is to make sure your dog is leashed before you open your door, you’d be surprised how many dog owners let their dog out without a leash and think their dog will come back when they call. There are too many things that can go wrong to trust your dog to come when he’s called if he’s scared or distracted. The best strategy here is to never let your dog out of your home off leash and become a missing dog. The only exceptions are if your property is gated or enclosed so your dog has no way to get lost.
- Transports – Again, when you take a chance and let your dog out of a car or cage, your dog is at risk. Dogs that are transported as rescues may have had a difficult life and get frightened easily. Some transports might never have been outside for their whole life so they are not used to the great outdoors. Transported dogs often need extra protection with the proper leash and harness to make sure they don’t run away.
- Stolen – Yes, this is a common occurrence that shouldn’t be ignored. Even though you may think you live in complete safety, it’s best to keep your eye on your dog at all times so you will not have to suffer with guilt about your missing dog. This means you might want to lock your doors when you leave your dog alone in your home and never let your dog sit in your car without someone with him.
