Dog protection

Dog theft and abuse

There is a growing number of dog thefts and though this is a scary prospect it is still relatively uncommon but dog owners can still benefit from following simple and sensible advice.

local reports and advice

  • Dog collars with minimum information on. It is illegale to not have your name and phone number on a dog disk, however that can make your dog a target for dog-napping.
  • Resist posting pictures of your dog(s) on social media with the location switched on. Modern phones often record your location by default, when you post the image switch the location off.
  • Watch for irregular visitors to your regular walking spaces. e.g. cars hanging around with 2/3 people in that do not look local
  • Train your dog to not be so sociable to strangers. e.g. try and stop them wandering up to just anyone to say hello.
