Half of all dogs stolen are gundogs, according to dog reuniting charity DogLost.

Now, the not-for-profit organisation Pet Theft Awareness is helping Gundog owners learn how to prevent their dog from being stolen with a series of daily tips and advice as part of Gundog Theft Awareness Week.

Advice ranges from what to do immediately if your dog has been stolen to the best tools to prevent theft alongside the story of Dawn Maw whose gundog was stolen whilst she was putting her other three dogs in the back of her car.
