Copper-coloured Plummer terriers were stolen from their kennels in Choseley Road in Knowl Hill near Maidenhead on Sunday night.
The two dogs called Amber and Becky were taken between 7.30-9pm, along with their unique Y shaped copper walking lead.
Dog owners across the area have been warned to be vigilant following a series of dog-nappings across East Berkshire this week.
A Jack Russell and two spaniels were stolen from Ilsey Road, Compton on Friday and Saturday and two Patterdale Border Terriers were stolen from Goring Lane in Mortimer on Saturday.
Dog owners have been reminded to take the following precautions to protect their dogs:
1. Ensure your dogs are micro-chipped
2. Keep them secure, especially at night
3. If you have kennels consider installing an alarm and security lighting
4. If you are buying a dog, check its history carefully, otherwise you might be buying stolen property unwittingly.
