DOG THEFT WARNING

Alert message sent 14/09/2020 12:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police


Further to a report of Dog kennels being broken into on Sunday evening whereby 8 dogs have been removed from a kennels in North Bedfordshire, including 1 Black Lab, 2 Cocker Spaniels and 5 English Springer Spaniel, we are urging all dog owners to remain vigilant to any suspicious activity and reminding you of the following -

AVOID leaving dogs in outside kennels if at all possible. If not possible, then make sure the kennels are alarmed - experience tells us padlocks alone will not stop thieves.

Ensure all gates are locked at top and bottom with a shoot bolt and padlock and consider fitting a bell or gate alarm.

Keep an ID tag on your dog at all times.

Never leave your pet in the garden unattended.

Make sure your dog is microchipped and their details are updated so that they can be returned if they are stolen and subsequently found.

There were also 2 attempted dog thefts on Sunday evening in BEDFORDSHIRE as well 1 just across the border in the HERTFORDSHIRE area.

Please remain alert and report any suspicious activity.
