A dog owner’s worst nightmare; one second your dog is there with you, the next they’re not. This starts a very upsetting and stressful time for you but by following these simple steps you can help find your dog quickly.
If your dog has disappeared from your home, the chances are that they won’t have gone far.
They may have been distracted by a passing cat, or have been tempted to wander off in search of food and simply got disorientated.
Alternatively they may have been spooked by a loud noise or a rumble of thunder, and sought safety in the garden or garage of a neighbour.
