In this episode (028), we finish up the story of Beckett and how his parents ended up finding and saving him! The strategy that works is so counter-intuitive. I think it’s something that every dog parent should know, just in case. And if you hear of a dog being lost after listening to this series, then you’ll have great information to pass along that will help in the efforts of bringing that dog home safely. I’m hoping this helps many dogs and their people…with a strong rippling effect of passing along very important information to help when this tragedy becomes a reality for dog parents out there.
To finish out the series in the next two episodes after this one, I talk with a dog finder specialist, Devon Thomas Threadwell, 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 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!
