It’s really hard to consider, but every year in the U.S. 10 million dogs and cats are lost to their owners. 10 million! That means 1 out of 3 pets will go missing in their lifetime. The numbers are staggering, and very hard to think about when you consider it being your furry family member. But with numbers like these, its also crucial to think about how to prevent your dog from becoming lost, what to do if they are lost and what steps to take if you find a lost dog that isn’t yours. With the right plan in place, we can reduce the number of dogs that become statistics.

But how do you handle it when one of you gets hurt on the trail?

Prevention is always the best medicine and we all want to keep our adventure companions safe. We’re vigilant in protecting them from cars, from unfriendly wildlife, and even other dogs.
