Cute Puppies Hate Chains

Chaining pets in the backyard is not what our best friends deserve. They get lonely and crave for human affection while exposed to extreme weather conditions. Bring your four legged family members indoors.

  1. I'll admit I've always kept my dogs outdoor on a run-line and brought them indoors only in cold weather. My dogs were walked, played with, spoiled with lots of meats, etc. They never got "lonely" or "sad"; they weren't skinny but were somewhat chunky, and had lots of energy. Neither were any agressive–they never bit anyone nor growled at anyone. I don't like to imbue nonhumans with human-like qualities, but this all too common nowadays. It's almost at a fanatical-level. Due to this, although I've kept good care of my dogs, this anthropomorphic view many people has labeled me in a negative light, so much so that when I try to reason with these folks, their minds are locked and narrowed and they will not listen. It's mind-boggling how people can imbue animals with human traits, yet for their fellow man, these people dehumanize them. You can find plenty examples of this dehumanization right here amongst these comments. Anyhow, I view dogs as animals–they are to be respected, but I keep a healthy view of an animal's place versus a human being. I recommend reading about anthropomorphism through scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. It's really interesting.

  2. Yes and no, you should allow her to come in more often but if you find she likes to be out they during the day, give her all her needs such as Jensine2000018023 says they do for their dogs. But imagine what it's like for her, I'm sure she could like the open space but when it comes the time when it wants to even just cuddle with you by the tv and she cant that's not very nice at all because who likes to be lonely.

  3. there is nothing wrong with chaining up a dog outside when you are away. I dog should not live their entire life on a chain, but from my own experience, they would rather spend the day outside rather than inside (which you could call a cage). At least they might be able to come in contact with a squirrel or bird, rather than having to sit in a lonesome empty house. Dogs are meant to be outside. Dogs love fresh air!

  4. Me and my friend tried to free a dog from a chained life when we were in Portugal, he was guarding an abandoned house and was quite skinny. We called him Gunner (he was a German shepherd cross we think) and after we untied him he walked with us for a bit, we were trying to lead him into town because a lot of the Cafes there often adopt dogs, but he wouldn't follow us all the way and we didn't want to drag him, so we had to give up.

  5. No such thing as an "inside or outside dog." You take the time and effort to train your canine friend manners and how to behave. People who don't show their new canine friend how to act end up with a wild child on their hands. THIS is why most end up in the yard on a chain. The human didn't take the time and the cute little puppy grows up out of control. A dog is not a lawn ornament. If you don't have the time to properly train an animal then you don't deserve to have one.

  6. My neighbor has a big dog they keep chained up outside sometimes. He's always happy when someone comes by like me or my other family members. He wagged his tail and even got on his side to be petted. All they want is to love and be loved.

  7. It depends if you're just chaining her outside. If she can run freely in a large yard and has a house or kennel outside, then it's fine. If you chain her to something outside and leave her like that, even if you have a dog house, you should bring her in. Especially if you have other dogs that live inside, she may get jealous of the love you give the other dogs. Just a thought. Good luck.

  8. as long as you don't keep her chained up shes fine. We mostly keep our 4 big dogs out side, and they have dog igloos, and nice comfy beds. And their happy as can be, just in the summer if where you are gets hot make sure they have ways of keeping cool. Out dogs have a large kiddy pool and a mister on the front porch. 🙂 and we constantly put ice cubes in their water.

  9. Here's an excerpt from the Humane Society website:

    First, more people are learning that continuous tethering is bad for dogs. As pack animals, dogs have been bred for thousands of years to form a strong attachment to a human family. An otherwise friendly and happy dog, when kept continually chained and isolated, often becomes neurotic, unhappy, anxious, and aggressive. In fact, studies show that chained dogs are much more likely to bite than unchained dogs.

  10. I feel bad now, we keep are big dog outside but we do bring her in when, raining,thundering, and fireworks :/ is that bad? we already have 7 pets living in our house

  11. i only chain my dog when visters come (every 3weeks) since hes agressive. but he has his own house or shed so he wont need to get in the house :)!!
