Guard against dog theft

Although dog theft is not a major problem in our area, owners should always be vigilant and follow basic security advice.

Ensure your pet is microchipped – If your dog runs off and it is found, you can be easily traced as its owner. – If your dog is stolen, when it is taken to the vets, they will discover that the dog is chipped and you will be identified as its rightful owner.

  • Don’t leave dogs unattended in the street.
  • Ensure your garden is secure and don’t leave them alone for long periods of time
  • If you keep them outside, make sure your property and kennels are secure
  • Always keep them on a lead when walking near roads
  • Ensure your dog is fully trained to come back to you before you let it off the lead.
  • If you see any suspicious activity, vehicles or people please call the police on 101.
  • If you see a crime in progress, always dial 999.
  • Stray dogs should be reported to your local council’s dog warden.
