Petition to Make Dog Theft a Crime. Police Forces report at least 5 pups stolen every day
A petition to make pet theft a specific crime expects to enter parliament within a year. It has been initiated by Stan Rawlinson a specialist Doglistener and Dog Behaviourist based in Richmond Surrey.
Police forces currently record dog theft as a petty crime but further action rarely taken. The petition urges a legal crackdown so that offenders can face charges for illegal earnings or kidnapping. In some cases end up in jail. It is time they are caught. The loss of dogs is heartbreaking for many owners.
Do you have dogs? Have you had problems losing them? Would you support the call for more legal action? Will you sign the petition? Lost a dog? Let us know of your experience. Don’t let it happen.

New research from Direct Line Pet Insurance reveals the number of dogs reported stolen has risen for the fourth consecutive year. In 2018 there were 1,959 dogs reported stolen to UK police forces, 80more than in 2017, despite fewer police forces responding to a request for this data. On average, five dogs are reported stolen every single day across the UK. It is possible the number is higher.
