    Same, Laura. It certainly eases the anxiety of a possible drugging, doesn't it.
    We have a good neighbourhood, but there is this one teenager around who is really, really bad!
    He even tried to get on my son's bus the other week with an axe hidden under his jersey.

    I wasnt aware that it was more prevalent, this trend, but perhaps more people these days are trying to get as much money they can by any means necessary.
    Its quite sad more people resorting to this.

    Its another good reason to microchip dogs, it wont stop dog theft, but hopefully at some point it would be scanned and the scanner might clue up a bit?

    My two are bait trained so they cant be drugged that way at least, they are way to cautious of strangers & my bitch is fully trained in protection/ attack so I can rest easy there. Many years ago I had a little red nose APBT that was stolen from my house in Wentworthville {SYD} Never saw her again & the police made a few busts in the area regarding dog fighting. Still hurts to think what could have happenned to her.

    I'm so glad that none of my SBT'S have been baited, drugged, stolen etc.

    I do lock Floyd in my house whenever we go out or i take him with me if possible, i never leave him alone in the yard while we are out & but most of the time there's someone home even at night or day.

    (i dont get complaints from my dog as SBT'S would rather be inside then outside, i'm sure SBT'S think their human lol)

    I too am a concerned Mum My boy is locked in the yard when we're out. Since moving to the city, we get so much attention from people ("OMG is it a bear? Is it a pony?") when we're out walking that I'm pretty nervous that someone might decide to take him.

    I was going to invest in a lockable collar and lead get up (Pookinuk :: Buy - The Dog Lock - Locking Leash (Leads) <p>The Dog Lock - Locking Leash&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;This is an amazing CHEW PROOF lead - these leads have 2 metal cables to stop the dog chewing completely through the lead.....&nb) until I realised I simply cannot leave him tied up as people just completely surround him (it was not uncommon for at least 15 people to surround him-pretty scary for a pup from the country!)

    yeah gyps is an opening door like a human dog, seriously its freaky to watch. my house mates sending me a video and il post it for you guys anyway i leave her inside but she can go out the back if she wants because no door is unopenable. if its locked she even tries to turn the key and im scared she'l snap it in the lock so i dont lock it. i think she generally stays inside when im not home because the back door is allways shut when i get home (shutting the door is bellow her you see)

    Candy shuts herself in too...silly girl! I'll go out and leave the back door to the laundry open....she pushes the laundry door closed and locks herself in the small, hot little room I bought a big rubber door stop and wedged it under the door, so now she can't lock herself in

    I don't think anyone can enter my yard from the outside (not without know how to)...I was worried about Candy when she was a pup...but ppl are afraid of her now..lol.
