We are appealing for witnesses after a deer was attacked by a dog or dogs in a field outside Alva on Saturday 19th February 2022.

Following the attack the deer was tended to by the SSPCA but sadly due to the injuries it sustained and distress it was in it had to be put to sleep.

If you witnessed the incident or have any information regarding it please contact our Wildlife Police Officer, PC Laura Robertson on 101 or email [email protected].

If you are walking your dog in an area where there are likely to be deer or livestock please keep them on a lead at all times, regardless of how well trained they are; none of us want unnecessary pain and suffering caused to wild animals or livestock.

We hope that you are all keeping well.

Unfortunately, we are still not operational with classes. Mainly due to the fact that we train indoors and the uncertainty surrounding numbers and contacts is so volatile. Class numbers would have to be very restricted.

There are some outdoor training classes operating for this reason.

As soon as our situation changes, we will post here to let you all know.

So sorry that we are unable to facilitate training at this time.

DOG THEFTS – STIRLING & DUNBLANE

We are investigating two separate incidents of theft which occurred on Saturday, 27th March, 2021, where dogs have been stolen.

The first incident occurred in Scott Street, Stirling around 2pm, where a 4 year old bitch Shiatzu/Chihuahua cross; black, tan and brown marking was stolen after being driven off by a male in an old style Land Rover Discovery. This dog is currently pregnant and was wearing a pink collar with a pink bow at the front and has long whiskers and protruding teeth.

The second incident occurred between 2pm & 3.30pm, where a 5 month of Husky puppy has been stolen whilst unaccompanied and tied up outside a caravan at the Balhadie Filling station, Dunblane, after the owners were approached by a male driving an old style Land Rover Discovery. This dog is small, white with brown patches on its back with blue/grey eyes.

The description of the male involved in both incidents is white male in his late 30's, heavy built and around 5'10 in height with mousy brown, shaggy long hair with a shaggy brown beard. He was wearing a yellow high-vis waistcoat and jeans and may have been accompanied by a 10/11 year old white male child.

The vehicle is described as a dark blue Land Rover Discovery 4x4 vehicle, bearing a 3D registration plate to the rear.

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident numbers 1954 and 1796 of 27th March 2021. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where you can give information anonymously.

10/03/2021

Following incidents in Dundee yesterday where a dog was stolen (later recovered) in Menzieshill, and alleged attempted thefts of dogs in the Baxter Park area, we have some crime prevention advice for you to help keep yourself and your dog safe.

Where at all possible, avoid leaving dogs in the garden or outside kennels when not at home.

Never leave your dog secured alone, outside a shop. This makes them vulnerable and a tempting target for opportunist thieves.

Your dog should be microchipped and registered with current information. Use a collar and dog tag displaying contact details (don’t put your dog’s name on the tag, use your surname).

Take photographs of yourself with your dog, to help you prove ownership if needed.

Never let them off the lead if you are not sure they will come back to you, especially if you are in an unfamiliar area where your dog might get lost.

Try not to give details of your pets, your location or your walking locations out on your social media platforms.

When out walking, beware of strangers asking you questions about your dog.

Vary your times of walks and routes; to avoid dogs being targeted during walks.

If your dog is lost or suspected stolen, it is important to act quickly:-

Report all missing / stolen dogs on 101, so if found they can be reunited with their owners.

If you believe your pet has been stolen, report it to the police and ask it is recorded as a theft and not as a lost animal, and note the crime reference number provided.

Notify the microchip database provider.

Report the loss on as many missing animal websites as possible – there is no single national missing animal database.

Losing a pet due to theft or other reasons is a traumatic event. Blue Cross operates the national Pet Bereavement Support Service which can be contacted on 0800 096 6606 (8.30am – 8.30pm) or by email: [email protected].

Please be so vigilant....dog theft seems to be on the rise again. Last night, two cocker spaniels were stolen from their kennels in Broxburn. Two bitches taken at 7.30pm.........also lots of messages on social media about vans, men/woman stopping people to ask questions about their dog.....please be extra careful and if you see anyone acting suspiciously around your dogs, please report them. Also be aware of where your dogs are at all times, watch them carefully, even in your own gardens. Keep your eyes peeled and stay safe.

WARNING WHEN FREEZING TREAT TOYS!

Please ensure that if you are stuffing treat toys and freezing them for your pets to help keep them cool, dont forget to ensure there is a HOLE ALL OF THE WAY THROUGH IT.

WHY YOU MAY ASK ?

Toys such as Kongs have 2 holes in their toys for a reason - TO PREVENT SUCTION.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT ?

When your pet licks at the contents of the toy or squeezes it in its mouth, their tongue can get SUCKED into the hole and get STUCK on the dogs tongue and cause horrific injuries to the point where the animal can actually die.

Having 2 HOLES in the toy PREVENTS this from happening.

So if you STUFF your toys with treats, push a straw through it to ensure the 2 HOLES ARE NOT BLOCKED.

If you are going to FREEZE the toy, do so with the straw in place and then remove when giving it to your pet.

So when buying your pet toys, please keep this in mind.

Hope this little tip helps you keep your animals safe!

While we can't restart training classes, here are some tips for Puppy owners to be getting on with. Remember socialisation isn't all about meeting other dogs, your puppy should experience everything they are likely to encounter as an adult in a positive, fun way. :)

Socializing puppies is more than just meeting people and dogs...and this is especially relevant during this time of social distancing. Though our exposure to some stimuli is now limited, there’s so much we can do. Yes it is helpful to have your puppy interact with people and other dogs, but there are other things you can do to support your puppy’s emotional well-being as they develop.

Your puppy is building neural pathways with each life experience during their early stages of life. You can create situations to help develop these neural pathways even when your puppy cannot meet other dogs and new people in the same way you might have before Covid.

Here are some tips on how to continue socialization during this unusual time:

USING AUDIO AND VIDEO STIMULI

There are many videos on the internet that replicate the same sounds that your puppy may experience outside. Examples include construction noise, traffic, skateboard sounds, and sounds of kids playing. Our goal is to expose our pups to these noises so that they are no big deal. Start off by playing these sounds at a level that is barely audible, and day by day if your pup shows no reaction to the sounds, increase the volume. The key here is to watch your puppy’s body language. Your pup’s signals of unease can be subtle and easy to miss. While you’re looking for a loose, wiggly, and enthusiastic puppy, if you’re unsure we can help you identify signs of stress. During the socialization window, exposure isn’t what matters – it’s your pup’s emotional reaction to new things that matters.

WEIRD MOVEMENT? NO PROBLEM

On top of strange noises, we can expect that pups will have to tolerate all kinds of stimuli coming towards them unexpectedly over the course of their lives. While you can’t bike or skateboard through your apartment, you do have a broom, a blow dryer, and a vacuum. After your pup shows no reaction to the sounds of these items, you can start working on desensitizing them to movement. Remember to start at a low level and to work your way up. It is better to go slow here than to move too fast and risk your pup developing a negative reaction.

TOLERANCE TO SUDDEN ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE (SEC)

We want to be sure your puppy is comfortable with changes in their environment. Now that the environment is somewhat constricted, we have to be creative in making sure your puppy is exposed to changes so he or she will not be overwhelmed when changes happen in real life. Move items in your house when your puppy isn’t looking. Use what you have around the house to create obstacle courses. We then encourage your puppy to explore this “new” environment while ensuring the process is fun! Together, we can find ways to disrupt your environment so that change is a normal part of your puppy’s life.

ALL SURFACES ARE SAFE

We want to be sure your puppy is exposed to a variety of walking surfaces to prevent phobias from developing to different floor substrates. We can do this at home by setting up an “obstacle course” that includes things like stairs and mimics different surfaces your puppy will encounter out in the world. Your pup should feel comfortable walking on carpet, wood, tile, linoleum, cement, and grates.

FROM EARS TO TAILS, EYES TO NAILS

We want to be sure your puppy is comfortable with all kinds of touch, from being picked up to having their nails clipped. We can practice this at home through conditioning and desensitization. We have plenty of time – and now is the time to ensure our pups are totally comfortable with being pet, having their paws held, ears swabbed, eyes opened, teeth checked, and feeling gentle pokes with the eraser end of a pencil (to mimic injections).
