Pudsey has to be accompanied by someone at all time in case he is dognapped.
The famous pooch - who along with his handler Ashleigh Butler won the latest season of 'Britain's Got Talent - is so well known that there are now fears he could be stolen by people eager to cash in on his talent.
Ashleigh told Hello! magazine: ''We've had to up security. There's a chance he could be dognapped. We make sure he's never home alone.''
The 17-year-old also revealed she has no plans to retire Pudsey because he would get depressed.
She said: ''He's one of those dogs that wants to be busy. If we stopped performing or I put him into retirement he'd hate me and get depressed. He loves showing off. The bigger the crowd, the better he performs. He's a natural born show off.''
Ashleigh says Pudsey's performance on the Britain's Got Talent is the first time he hasn't made a single mistake in his routine.
She explained: ''I couldn't believe the BGT final - it was the first routine in his life that he did perfectly. I think he knew that he had to up his game. I was amazed at how well he did, especially with all the pressure.''
