Pet theft! OMG This is really a THING!!

Updated: Jul 7, 2021

I'm sure you've all heard about celebrity dog thefts recently, what an awful thing to happen! I can't even begin to imagine how I would feel if my little dog was stolen from me, an awful thought, but one we probably should prepare for or at least be aware of, insert sad face.

But, there are a few things we can do to help keep our furbabies safe!

  • An obvious one but ALWAYS microchip and register your dog, this is the easiest way to identify your dog if necessary and the best way to get him back safely if he goes missing

  • Never leave your dog tied up on her own outside the shops

  • Have locks on all entrances to your backyard

  • Never let your dog play out the front of your house when you aren't with him

  • Keep your dog in a closed and locked area during the day and at night

  • Have a collar with your phone number on your dog ALL THE TIME

  • When walking your dog, always use a lead

  • Consider installing CCTV around your home, the ones that have good quality night vision are the better choice

  • Install sensor lights around your home

  • Have your social media settings set to the highest privacy settings to minimise personal information becoming readily available to strangers

  • Never give out too much information about your dog or the cost/value of your dog to a stranger, especially if they have sought you out

Sadly, some dogs do get stolen, but if you are able to implement a some of the tips we've provided you, you are well and truly on your way to keeping your furbae safe.

All the best xx
