About Private Investigator Karin TarQwyn

The NINE SCENARIOS... when a dog goes missing.    

Just as in a missing person case, the search and investigation for a  missing dog is also based on profiling by scenario and situation. There are Nine Scenarios under which dogs go missing. Profiling a missing dog case to arrive at the most likely scenario includes identifying the behavioural characteristics of the lost dog and comparing that information to to the missing event, location and terrain to arrive at the most likely scenario the subject dog is experiencing.

Each missing dog situation must be analyzed on an individual basis. When a dog goes missing, an educated, consistent and effective strategy based on the most likely scenario must be employed as quickly as possible.

To the left are links to The Nine Scenarios for Missing Dogs. You will find other information in the links below to assist you in your search.
