Identification

  • Ensure your dog’s tag contains – owner’s name, postcode, and at least one contact number.

Never

Do

  • Walk with a friend if you are worried
  • Increase your house security – a crime prevention officer will advise you
  • Consider a GPS tracker collar
  • Pre-register your dog with DogLost
