A good "safety" exercise to practice is a command that tells your dog treats are in the offing, and use it at irregular intervals when you are walking. Combine the command with a total release of pressure on the leash, preferably when your dog has firm tension on said leash. Then if something unexpected happens you have a built in reaction of the dog to look to you for a reward. This won't work if your dog is pursuing a major distraction, but should give you an edge if you have an equipment failure in otherwise neutral conditions. (you can carry this one step further by "accidentally" dropping the leash in a controlled area, or with a light line attached for safety, and practice until the dog turns to you when it feels a total release)

Good morning…. can some of my basenji experts compare this photo to the girl from Kimberling Mo? Do u think this is the same girl?
I think the nose on this girl is a little more red... but what do you think? The CL ad is no longer posted, but the phone number works... I've called and left a message to find out her status.

The white streak on her face/neck.
You are such a dear for posting these lost/found dogs, you are truly helping them find homes!
The photos are from a different angle but much of the features of the one match the other. The one has a blaze that stops at the top but the other appears to go right over the head but thenagain this could be the angle of the shot.
Do you know if the advertiser of the missing dog been contacted by those who have the found one?
How far is Denver from Kimberling (please excuse my ignorance).
