Dog theft --- prevention? Dog neighbourhood watch??

Post by jsm348 » 06 Mar 2013, 15:56

Really getting quite worried about the stories circulating on Facebook and dog lost etc of pet theft, It seems so rife at the moment (or maybe I just didn't notice until getting a puppy myself) ... Anyway my thought was to create some sort of neighbour hood watch for dogs type scheme but wondered what you all though ? And if you had any tips for preventing this horrible crime... I was thinking along the lines Of info leaflet (don't leave dogs tied up outside shop, local info on microchipping etc) arranging dog walks and just general get togethers so local dog owners get to know each other and being aware if for instance you live in a street with other dogs you can keep an eye out for each others houses particularly when people are out and dogs are home alone etc .... Welcome any of your comments ideas - thanks Jen x

Also check their website http://www.pettheft.co.uk for usual safety tips and for posters/leaflets that can be printed off.
