Lost Dog Best Practices
Losing a pet dog or other animal companions is a common occurrence, especially when an owner finds itself unable his or her pet that has gone missing. For years, there have been multiple incidents of missing pets caused by various reasons, including human negligence and accidental escaping.
In the United States, approximately 10 million pets are lost each year and a portion of this end up in the country’s animal shelters. Unfortunately, only 15% of dogs and 2% of cats in shelters without ID tags or microchips are reunited with their owners, according to the non-profit organization American Humane.
In an advocacy called “Every Day is Tag Day,” the American Humane encourages pet owners to ensure their dogs and cats have updated IDs. The initiative is a nationwide effort held annually on every first Saturday in April, where thousands of people in the animal care and control agencies gather. The event encourages owners employ best practices like equipping their pets with microchips in addition to ID tags.

Can Dogs Find Their Way Home?
A majority of animal behavior experts credit the navigating ability of dogs due to their hypersensitive sense of smell. This comes from the premise that dogs are well known for their ability to find their way home, as cited by The New York Times.
Theory suggests that a dog creates a “map of scents” from odiferous places like a food establishment or fertilized garden, even at least a small scent of its owner in the ground or air.
A study shows that dogs are most especially sensitive to the odor of a familiar person to them, which was tasted using MRI imaging in a brain area responsible for expectation of a reward, The New York Times reports.
