Dognapping on the increase Print E-mail
Monday, 19 June 2017 11:25

It's alarming to discover that five dogs are reported stolen every day.  Last year 1774 dog thefts were reported to the police which is a 19% increase on the previous year.  And it is thought that the numbers may be higher as not everybody reports a dog theft.  The majority of dogs are stolen from their owners' garden or from outside shops but some vanish on walks.  What happens to them?  Depending on age, breed and sex, some are sold online, others end up on puppy farms.  A minority are used as bait in dog fights.  Unfortunately the police tend to regard dog theft in the same way as any other "property" such as a mobile phone - rather than as a treasured member of your family.

We have heard a lot of people - both those with and without a dog of their own - complaining that they find dog walkers (usually professionals) with packs of dogs intimidating.  Even when they are on leads. And it seems that some local authorities are beginning to agree.  Gosport council in Hampshire is imposing a limit of four dogs to one person while Richmond on Thames is reducing its maximum of six to four as well.  Apparently the Kennel Club thinks any sort of limitation is wrong.  But here at the CBC we agree with a limit but even four large dogs such as GSDs, Rottweilers or Leonbergers in the hands of just one person can be a tad unnerving.  What do YOU think?

 
Hot dogs Print E-mail

It looks as though most of us are going to enjoy a very hot Bank Holiday weekend and apparently thousands are going to hit the roads. Many of those will have the family dog with them in the car so spare a thought for them. The RSPCA are running a hard hitting campaohn asking people to dial 999 if they see a dog in distress in a hot car. Remember: if it's 22C outside it can reach 47C inside the car within only an hour. Spearheading the campaign is Jonathan Theobald who left his three Staffordshire bull terriers to die in his car while he went to the gym last June. Rightly he was prosecuted and banned from keeping dogs. Don't let that be you...
