How does this translate when leashing the pet for a walk? Same principle. There are days that my dogs enjoy being outside for a few hours so I hook one up to a tie with a ground steak and when he wants to come him in. he barks at the door and I let him in. How would someone just driving or walking by know if he was out there all day or not. I understand where you are coming from on this , however not all dogs that are tied up out side for a bit are abused. Would you rather have them run free and get hit by a car or in a fight with another dog? To me this is nanny state type of legislation.
cmon are you serious? were not talking about people like you whos dogs go outside for a few hours to shit, piss, roll around in the grass, lick thier balls, do thir nails, text thier friends, or stare into space and watch squireel and birds.
Im OBVIOUSLY talking about dogs chained 24 hours a day non stop 7 days a week, every day of the month.
If someone walks by your house every day for a month at all different hours of the day and it seems like the dog is ALWAYS TIED UP ....then, then they should call. If the animal control comes out and you tell them my dog was just out cause you let them out for 3 or 4 or 5 hours to chill outside.....then they leave. This is a anti 24 hour dog chaining law.
What if someone walks by my house and my wife is saying shes gonna kill me for leaving the shower curtain open cause of mildew and a neighbor hears her say this and calls the cops for fear of my life (would be cool if once in awhile one of my neighbors would have some concerns for me..lol)...then the cops come, see the truth
and tell me..."dude, leave the shower curtain closed, goodnight."
If people know its illegal, if they didnt think it was wrong and inhumane, they might start to realize that it is cause its illegal. Yes, many still will, but many wont and it will be like a virus towards a more humane way of life for pets in this world.
