WOOFS! A barkingly beautiful snowstorm recently reminded me about dog safety in snow. Do you know when dogs tend to get lost the most and why? What season is the first in the number of dogs getting lost?

Barks, surprisingly for some humans, dogs get lost most often in the winter! Why? When it snows, it covers everything including tracks and scents which a dog often uses to find its way back home. When the humans allow their dogs off-leash or the dog gets loose somehow, they tend to go exploring sniffing their way around all over the pawlace having the time of their lives. Arfly, then they realize they cannot find their way home. Their scents are no longer in the snow, the paw prints are covered up.

Paws, make certain your dog's ID collars or tags and microchips are current!

My human never lets me off-leash in an unsecured area. A good practice to do.
