Toy dog warning

A WARNING has been made about the potential dangers of toy dogs circulating in the region.

Dumfries and Galloway Council’s trading standards service is warning people to be aware of battery operated small soft toy dogs which may have been purchased over the summer, particularly at agricultural shows.
The toys have soft covering to a firm structure and a battery section on their underside. They may also have small hats or bells on the head of the toy. There is often a sticky label over the battery section with a CE Mark and suppliers’ name and address. These toys would generally be on open display without any packaging.
It is believed the toys may have a problem with the facial features and other small parts in that they can easily be removed and pose a choking hazard to small children.
Anyone who has purchased anything of this description should remove it from their child and return it to the retailer if possible.
Contact trading standards on 030 33 33 3000 for advice.
