How to find a lost dog

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

Here at DePaolo Equine Concepts, our dogs (and our horses of course) are part of our family.  If you ever have to go through the agony of having a lost dog, try this tip…

Take an article of your clothing that has been worn for at least 24 hours (longer if possible) and put it in the last place the dog was seen and leave it there.  This is for the dog to pick up your scent and find its way back.  If the dog has a crate or a favorite toy you can leave that too – sometimes even the squeaker sound in the toy will alert a lost dog.  If these items are put in a place that has a lot of foot traffic you might want to leave a note requesting they not be removed.  You can also leave a bowl of water because chances are your dog has not had a drink since he left you.

Go back and check the area intermittently for the next day or so.  Hopefully your beloved sidekick has found his way back.  This is a trick that hunters use to get their dogs back and is very successful out in the wild.
