What should I do if I lose my dog?

If you’ve lost your dog, staying calm in those initial moments after losing sight of them is essential, as clear thinking enables better decisions for a quicker search.

 If your dog has a PitPat Dog GPS Tracker, go into the PitPat app and tap ‘Find my dog’; there might be a brief wait as the device communicates with your phone, but once it is located, it will update regularly. Then all you need to do is follow the direction it shows you to locate your dog. It can be tempting to use a Bluetooth tracker like an Apple AirTag, but as we found out, they aren’t as reliable, and as those first moments after losing your dog are all important, consistency is what you need.

As you’re looking, assess potential dangers like busy roads or cliffs and consider the risk your dog could pose to others. It’s also good to keep calling your dog persistently, using a calm tone or a training whistle. And, of course, if there are other people around, you can let them know about your missing dog, and they might be able to help.

If you can’t find your dog within the first two or even 24 hours, there are other things you can try, including putting up posters and calling local vets and rehoming centres. 

How can I support Dogs Trust?

Many people were taken by the heartwarming stories and applauded the series for raising awareness about animal abandonment. So you’ll be pleased to know that there are many great ways you can support Dogs Trust now that the show is over.

You can sponsor a dog, fundraise and volunteer, and donate to them as well. You won’t be surprised to learn that it’s a cause close to our hearts, too, which is why PitPat LIFE™️ dogs can use the points they earn to donate to Dog’s Trust. Those points can provide a dog with something as simple as a cosy bed to sleep on or even a full vet check. And we’re proud to say we’ve already donated £4521.50 to Dogs Trust this year in direct donations.

Live: Lost Dogs really underscores the challenges, triumphs and resilience of both the dogs and the individuals striving to make a difference in their lives. If you watch this fantastic show and are thinking about adopting one of the dogs featured, then get in touch with your local Dogs Trust centre. And when you bring home your new best pal, make sure to pop a PitPat GPS on their collar, so they don’t need to be on a TV show like this again.
