If you lose your dog on a walk, stay where you lost him and keep calling. Do not wander around aimlessly as you are likely to keep missing each other. Ask any other dog walkers to let you know if they spot your dog.
Once you are sure that your dog is not just lurking nearby investigating a really nice smell, notify us and the nearest police station. Your dog may have already been collected and kennelled, and if your pet is wearing the correct identification you will receive a notice of this and will be required to pay the costs stated. Contact the local vets in case your dog has been injured and brought into them.
If your dog has been seized as a stray, the dog will have been taken to Forest Lodge Kennels.
If your dog is microchipped contact Pet Log (01296 336 579), who manage and operate the 24/7 central reunification service, to advise them that your dog is missing.
You can make some posters and put them in the surrounding area where you lost him. You can also put your dogs details on the websites that help find lost dogs such as Doglost (0844 800 3220).
