In this episode (027), we begin a 4 part podcast series all about lost dogs. What should you do if your dog gets lost? What can you do ahead of time with the hope that this never happens to you? As dedicated dog parents, it’s good to be prepared, just in case this horrible nightmare happens. We start off by sharing a story of a lost dog named Beckett who lives in Iowa. In parts 1 and 2, I talk with his mom and dad about our shared experience in rescuing Beckett. It’s a very interesting and eye-opening story with a happy ending, which every dog lover will enjoy.
To finish out the series, in the second two episodes, I talk with a dog finder specialist, Devon Thomas Treadwell, who co-founded a non-profit organization called The Retrievers. There is a wealth of information in all 4 of these episodes in this series. There are valuable tips and things I never knew that we can do to prevent our dogs from ever being lost in the first place. The information and tips and strategies and dog behavior contained in this series are all so interesting. I hope you find it as interesting and educational and enlightening as I did.

The Secret Sauce – Here’s the really great scent trail recipe…
Get a large thermos or milk carton and fill it 2/3 or 3/4 with water, add a full bottle of smokey BBQ sauce, mix in a good helping of garlic powder, and then a squirt or two of liquid smoke. Voila!
Beware: If there are cats in the area, they’ll come running!
