Chaining/tethering – not the right solution

Neck damaged by long-term chaining

Neck damaged by long-term chaining

This is one clear reason why a dog should not be chained for long periods of time (more than an hour is too much); fencing, kenneling, or keeping the dog inside are all better solutions than chaining/tethering.

It isn’t difficult to housetrain a dog so they can stay safely inside, or to crate train a dog… a moderately sized fenced portion of the yard or a humanely sized chain link dog kennel isn’t too much to ask if the dog needs to stay outside.

If all else fails, closing off a mud room or bathroom for the dog’s comfort when home alone can be a simple solution. Anyone who just can’t take the time to do one of those things really doesn’t need a dog. Doesn’t your dog deserve better than this?

This beautiful girl will be going up for adoption soon; chainers need not apply.
