Printable List of these Contacts -
Put up flyers in the area including a picture of the dog. Talk to
a lot of people - everyone and let them know your dog is missing. This
is to make sure everybody knows the dog is being looked for and
makes it harder for somebody in the area to keep the dog. Their neighbors
know the dog is being missed somewhere else. Don't forget the local
groomers and pet stores.
As you have noticed, I sometimes
forward emails about lost dogs over my list. This is a service for
my long term clients mainly. Also, in the past this was
NOT the way how dogs found back home to their owners. So I'd prefer
to wait a little bit before we use this measurement.
