Losing your dog is probably one of the worst nightmares for a pet parent. Many people consider their dog as part of the family, and if that family member is lost it can be very scary.

9. Documentation

You should have all of your dog’s documents and papers organized in one area with easy access. If your dog were to get lost, the fastest way to quicken the process of finding them is having all your information together. Proof of ownership such as vet documents, shelter information, photos, vaccination records, and more can make it easier to not only prove you are your dog’s owner, but also make it easier for those who might have found your dog such as shelters or rescue groups. You should keep handy your local shelter’s address and phone number along with a recent photo so you can put up flyers with what your dog looks like at the current moment.
