Gundog Theft Awareness Week 2022

Gundog Theft Awareness Week –

From 31st October to 7th November 2022 is Gundog Theft Awareness week, and here at Fortiscorde we wanted to give you some useful tips, tools and other websites to help you expand your knowledge and awareness of gundog and pet theft.

This week, along with National Pet Theft Awareness Week in March, was started by Arnot Wilson and Richard Jordan in 2013. Gundog Theft Awareness – Home ( Their goals are to:

  • To prevent pet theft through awareness.
  • To provide information to assist victims.
  • To campaign for the reclassification of pet theft and tougher penalties to deter pet theft including custodial sentences.
  • To get compulsory microchip scanning to encourage greater reunification of stolen and missing dogs with their owners.

Advice and tips:

Don’t leave dogs unattended anywhere, whether this be in a field or in a vehicle.

Ensure you have reliable and high standard kennel security around your property.

Review general security on cars and your home, i.e. locks on doors, windows and kennels.

Keep a copy of microchip identification numbers on your phone.

Don’t leave tools/ladders around or easily accessible, this can just make a thief’s job easier.
