When a Shy Dog goes Missing...
Recovering The STARS Dog...
Shy, Timid, Aloof, Reserved or Skittish
This is the classic behaviour profile experienced
by dogs that:
- have been adopted from shelters or rescues
- have been found stray
- are puppy
- are genetically predisposed from birth to shy, skittish behavour
- and the most likely... the
situation is a combination of two or more of the above characteristics.
Regardless the escape event or situation, when a Shy, Timid, Aloof,
Reserved, or Skittish (STARS) dog escapes or goes missing, immediate and decisive action needs to be implemented to recover
the frightened dog who is now facing the world alone. Dogs with this tendency may have
escaped and then end up on the roam... consciously avoiding detection and interface with humans.
With the proper techniques and consistent effort,
homecomings are regularly celebrated. If your dog meets the above personality profile
or background, please take immediate and decisive action .
The recovery of these dogs is a process with a precise formula:
- Locate the
- Attract the dog
- Capture the dog
the entire process happens within minutes; sometimes each step can take days or weeks. Regardless, when searching for
your Shy and Roaming dog keep these simple steps in mind as you develop your search strategy.
