A recent study found that as many as 15% of cats and dogs will go missing at least once. Unfortunately, there is currently a shortage of accurate information on lost pet behavior available on the internet. The mission of Lost Pet Research & Recovery is to find, organize, and share useful and reliable information relating to the search and recovery of lost pets.
This blog contains summaries of research articles obtained from the scientific literature and my own research projects covering numerous topics including cat and dog behavior, GPS & radio-tracking devices, trapping & surveillance techniques, and predator behavior.
Here are links to some of our most popular categories: Cat Behavior, Coyotes, Dog Behavior, GPS Trackers, Trapping Lost Pets. To find articles on a particular topic, use the Blog Article Menu located in the right sidebar. If you don’t find what you are looking for, you can also try the Search button or Contact me to see if I have any material on the subject.
