It’s estimated that more than one million dogs go missing every year in the United States. Many of them are never

reunited with their families—a tragedy that no dog owner wants to experience.

Based on academic research, interviews with experts, and real-life stories, Dog Gone Missing is the first book on this topic. It explores why dogs might run away, where they might go, whether they inherited navigation skills from their wolf ancestors, and why some dogs can find their way home while others can’t.

This essential guide also includes ten lost dog lessons, top tips for how to prevent your dog from going missing in the

first place, and the most effective tactics to bring your dog home should they ever get lost. Writer Amy Mall provides

an unbiased analysis of everything from pet detectives to tracking apps and other valuable information to help you

safeguard your canine companions.
