TIPS FOR FINDING A LOST DOG

MAKE A BRIGHT FLYER wITH a photo of the dog AnD your contact info 

 

Make note on the flyer not to chase the pup. They will almost always run.  

POST ONLINE

Facebook "lost pet" pages, Nextdoor, Craigslist, Rooster

Place dirty socks or pillow case of the bonded person outside of your home.

 

This encourages your pet to come home by scent. 

STart closest to home

Post flyers at intersections leading out of your neighborhood, then work out a mile at a time. 

 

When a dog is in survival mode

DO

  • Remain calm and quiet

  • Sit and get low to the ground - this is non-threatening behavior

  • Move slow and let dog approach you

  • Lure with food - crinkle a potato chip bag and make lip smacking sounds

    • If unable to lure, follow at a distance and call owner or post on social media ASAP​

DON'T

  • Call out or whistle - this may cause the dog to bolt in fear

  • Chase or approach - let the dog come to you

  • Make eye contact - this is threatening to a scared dog

PREVENTION
MICROCHIP

Make microchipping a priority! Puppies should be microchipped by their 2nd vaccination appointment. Rescues should be immediately.

 

Annually have your vet scan to locate the microchip and ensure it is still working. As well, make sure you verify your contact information is current with the microchip company!

AClimate new dog

Give them time to adjust! Be patient! This can be an overwhelming and scary adjustment for rescues, fosters and new adoptees. Pending the dog, this can take up to 1-3 months.

 

Give them space and let them dictate how they want to interact with you and your family. No unattended off leash time, even in a secured fenced area. Dogs can pull out of most collars and harnesses. Walks are not necessary for the first month or until you have the trust bond. We suggest using a Martingale Collar that has been properly fitted.

escape-proof your home

Put baby gates at any entrance points of your home. Walk your fence line and make sure there are not any holes, gaps or areas they could dig their way out. Make sure your gate is locked at all times. Make sure your fence is proper height for the breed you have. If at all possible, do not leave unattended or leave kenneled when not home.
