How Dogs Become Lost

At FindToto we believe that to prevent the occurrence of losing a dog it is ideal to understand why they become lost in the first place. It may be that the most prevalent way in which our canine loved ones leave home is due to a door or gate accidentally being left open. While many lost dogs will remain either in the house or yard, there are some who find the opportunity to be too much of a temptation. In such cases, it is their noses that lead them on an adventure that may go on for miles, or merely to a neighbor’s front porch.

While in many instances a lost dog’s key sense of smell will lead it astray, all intact males (those who have yet to be neutered) as well as specific breeds, such as sporting dogs, seem always at the ready to escape their home environs. Such breeds are “hard wired” to explore and have a great degree of wanderlust. They will either work at leaving home by digging, climbing or wiggling through fencing, or if the opportunity to bolt during a walk or through a door occurs, there is a good chance they will seize upon either. Many strays who experience wanderlust typically find themselves as “guests” at local animal shelters.

Some lost dogs are ingrained with a “flight or fight” response to certain stimuli; they tend to flee due to blind panic. There are various reasons why this may occur: Loud noises such as a car backfiring or thunder; the breed or specific dog is skittish or fearful; or an incident occurs that causes some type of trauma to our canine loved one such as a car accident. Owners of dogs who appear to exhibit such responses should be extra vigilant because they are the most difficult to find when lost because after leaving they tend to travel both fast and far, as well as avoid human contact (including members of the family).
