How to Prepare for Your Lost Pet Search

When you hire Jim Berns and his Search Dogs to come look for your lost pet in Tennessee, here are a few things he suggests you do to prepare for the search:

  • Photo of your Lost Pet: Email him a picture of your lost dog or lost cat. If possible have it be a clear picture of your lost pet that shows the pet from the side.
  • Reward Amount: Email him if you are offering a reward and how much. If you have questions if you should offer a lost pet reward or not, he can offer a suggestion and explain why or why not.
  • Volunteers: Jim works with your volunteers. Start by getting a group of volunteers to help with the search.
  • Search Event Organization: Jim helps you organize a search event for your lost pet. His Search Dogs and your volunteers take your search efforts to the next higher level. Especially effective if you have tried everything to find your lost pet, but with no luck. Communicate to Jim about a time and day that works best for you and your volunteers. He will advise you what supplies to have volunteers arrive with.
  • Scent Article: Have a Scent Article for the Search Dogs, such as bedding or a toy.


“It’s just amazing,” Mindy Ellis said after Jim Berns and Samantha found her dog in less than 6 minutes. “We were all just so impressed with him. I think if more people knew about him there would be so many more people who would find their pets.”

Tips for Finding Lost Pets in Tennessee:

  • Talk to your immediate neighbors – don’t just put a flyer in their mailbox. You need to ask them questions and ask for permission to search their property for your lost pet.
  • Don’t stop your search too close. In many parts of Ohio there is farmland and large rural areas. Pets can get further away. Don’t just look close to home.
  • Get the word out – any way you can! Specifically in Southern Ohio we had great luck with lost pet flyers and bigger posters.
  • For lost cats in Ohio, make sure to leave a way for them to return home on their own. For dogs lost in Ohio, leave a way for your dog to get back in too – make sure it is safe.
  • Offer a specific dollar amount reward.
