Fort Lauderdale, Florida, October 21, 2013 - "In recent years there has been an increased level of dog theft. Some organizations have indicated that dog theft has increased by as much as 32%", stated Robin Edwards, Home Dog Training of South Florida Behavioral Therapist & Master Trainer.
People steal pets for a variety of reasons:
Having a dog stolen is horrendous for both the owner and the dog. A once well behaved dog, if found, can turn into a fearful/aggressive animal. They can become aggressive around people or other animals. They might attack with no warning or sit, shaking with fear, in the corner of the room. Your once, happy companion, has returned to you with a level of anxiety and fear that might never be reversed.
So what can you, the pet owner do to try and minimize your pet being stolen?
If your dog has been stolen/missing:
"Having anything stolen from us, especially our family dog, is a terrible experience. Getting them back is very difficult and many times, impossible.", stated Edwards. The best solution is to proactively take the appropriate precautions outlined above. Keeping your dog safe and secure provides for their well being and is just the smart thing to do.
