Did the dog just get out? Even if you believe your dog is too smart to leave the yard, it is always a good idea to be prepared for the worst-case scenario.
Getting your dog loose and running around the neighborhood is terrifying for most dog owners. It's important to keep your dog from escaping, but accidents happen.
You can do a few things if your dog escapes from your yard or front door. Keep calm. Panicking will hinder your dog's search.
Next, look around your neighborhood for sightings. Check out the local Facebook pages as well. Many people use those pages to report lost dogs.
Loudly call your dog. If you're heard, they may return. If they don't respond, canvass the area with a photo of your dog and contact local animal shelters.
If you've tried everything and still can't find your dog, call a professional. They're experienced and skilled at finding pets.
Check to see if your dog's collar has an identification tag on it. Ensure that your most recent contact information is on their ID tags and that they are current.
You can do that by using a dog GPS tracker! Satellite-based GPS trackers that you can attach to your dog's collar allow you to find them anywhere in the world.
