Dog theft – owners beware

I’m sure you’re all aware, but dog theft is on the increase. There have now been reports from Thornborough and Buckingham (this week) of thefts and suspicious behaviour at well known dog walking areas. The Police are aware.

With the demand for puppies increasing during the past year, prices have increased and in turn thefts.

Keep them close. The general advice given is don’t do anything that you wouldn’t do with a small child ie don’t leave them in the car, waiting for you outside and be cautious about a stranger who asks you questions about your dog etc.
