At a recent seminar given by Ken Price, founder of The Dream Team, an organization that helps to retrieve lost pets, rescue dog owners learned about the dangers of loosening safety protocols before their dogs are ready.
I remember seeing someone hysteric over a lost dog on Facebook a couple of weeks back. I sent over “my prayers” and went on with my day. “We’ll be very careful, that’s not going to happen to us. Not in my backyard!” I thought. Except it did happen. In my (friend’s) backyard.
