While this doesn’t happen often, it does happen occasionally. If a dog goes missing for 15 minutes the staff member will let Eric know. Sometimes we know of a dead animal, house, pond, etc. that dogs may run to. We will notify the owner if we cannot find your dog after one hour. If this happens all available Active Dog staff will go to help find your dog and the town’s Animal Control office will be notified of the missing dog. It’s always a good idea to make sure your dog has your phone number on their tags or collar for safety reasons.
