  • Owners distraught after dogs go missing from boarding kennel | A Current Affair
    Archie and Bessie, beloved family pets, have gone missing from a doggie boot camp, leaving their owners devastated. The two dogs, a cute cavalier and a gorgeous Groodle, disappeared from the boarding kennel, raising concerns about the safety and security of the facility.
    The owners entrusted their precious pets to Joseph's Dog Training Solutions, a behavioral boot camp specializing in dealing with dog aggression. They hoped that the program would help improve Archie's behavior towards other dogs, as he tended to display aggression when encountering them. Little did they know that this decision would lead to a nightmare.
    Deb, one of the dog owners, expressed her frustration and disbelief, questioning why the facility would accept dogs if they couldn't ensure their safety. Both owners were shocked to receive a call from trainer Joseph, who informed them that their dogs had been stolen. The news came as a devastating blow, as they had placed their trust in Joseph to care for their beloved pets.
    Joseph reported that the dogs were caged from 3pm to midnight on his day off, providing some level of security. However, during this time, an intruder managed to break into the heavily guarded property and snatch the dogs. The owners questioned the security measures in place, asking if the dogs were locked up and if there was security on the shed. Joseph explained that the dogs were housed in a facility where they couldn't break out of the shed, but he admitted that it wasn't locked at the time of the incident. This raised further concerns about the facility's ability to ensure the safety of the animals under its care.
    The owners expressed their disbelief that someone would dare to steal their dogs, especially considering the signs and precautions in place. They believed that it was unlikely for anyone to take such a risk. The emotional toll of losing their beloved pets has been immense, and they are desperate for answers and the safe return of Archie and Bessie.
    A Current Affair, the news program that covered the story, reached out to Timothy from Joseph's Dog Training Solutions for further clarification. The program sought to understand the circumstances surrounding the dogs' disappearance and the security measures in place. In response, Timothy explained that the dogs were housed in a large shed, which was securely closed. However, he admitted that the shed wasn't locked, as they had recently moved to the new location.
    The video highlights the heartbreaking ordeal faced by the owners of Archie and Bessie.

  • We entrusted him with our dogs.
  • Little Archie loved people, but when it came to other dogs...
  • If we bypassed another dog, the aggression in him would come out.
  • Deb called Joseph's Dog Training Solutions for help.
  • A behavioural boot camp for dangerous dogs.
  • Dog barks $3,000 gets you four weeks of boarding.

  • Bessie the Groodle, just 24 hours.
  • Hello?
  • When trainer Joseph called both owners with terrible news.
  • What do you mean gone?
  • Basically, it was just a short and sharp, he's been stolen.
  • Joseph says the domestic pets were caged from 3pm to midnight on his day off.
  • During that time, he claims someone broke into his heavily guarded property and snatched the designer dogs.
  • Timothy, from A Current Affair, how are you?
  • Were the dogs locked up?
  • Do you have security on the shed?
  • So the dogs are in a facility where if they break out of their kennels, they can't break out of the shed, the really big shed that they're in, it's all closed.
  • But it wasn't locked per se, we've just moved in here recently, But why are you taking people's dogs in if you can't lock them up safely at night?
  • There is no way someone can come in, normally my dogs are out, my dogs are protection dogs.
  • Why on this one time were they not out?
  • I just didn't want to make too much noise for those neighbours there.
  • So the one time the dogs aren't out, someone comes in and steals dogs?
  • And the one time someone knows I'm not home.
  • Is that sus?
  • Yeah, because it's the only time someone knew I wasn't going to be home.
  • Could there be a case that the dogs got out together and they're all...
  • No, impossible, someone's literally come.
  • It's the same locks as these, right?
  • So it's the exact same locking mechanism as this.
  • They've literally had to come, but normally, anyway, they had to pull out.
  • When we got there, they've literally pulled the gates out, they were like this, and there was green detergent here.
  • So they're only on the two kennels, so they've literally washed both of these away.
  • Why can't we see inside to show people that the dogs are safe?
  • Well, if you have a dog here, you plus so many other people, would you like the whole world knowing where they are and who they are and what they look like, maybe their value?
  • I'd like to know my dog was safe though and locked up.
  • We're working off several different scenarios, including that they've been stolen, that they've been sold, and like with every investigation, we also have to consider that they may never have left the property and may never have left the property alive.
  • Pet detective Anne-Marie is on the case and says over the weekend, an anonymous caller claimed she found the dogs, but hasn't yet agreed to return them to their owners.
  • At best, it's a cruel hoax, and at worst, it's a blatant extortion attempt for money for the return of the dogs.
  • Are you worried that something like this has happened?
  • They were in your care.
  • Yeah, of course.
  • It's not right, you know?
  • It can't happen.
  • And I just want to find whodunit because we need to get those dogs back.
