Over the years he has been called out, many times, to recover dogs that were lost or ran away due to numerous reasons. Storms that scared the dog and knocked down fences, new dog running out the front door, rescue dog with new scary situation, climbing over fence, etc., all are reasons dogs may get away from their owners, handlers or territory.
While training and crating or kenneling a dog would prevent many of these situations, many more occur that become unavoidable. Rescue groups run into many incidents of lost dogs due to the nature of a new, confused or scared dog. Stuff happens.
Over many years there have been opportunities for him and his dogs to help, or track down lost dogs by themselves. He has put together a program to teach people how to identify the dog and location (including geographic area to search), deploy resources and recover a lost dog.
