Dog Tethering Statement

Posted on 02/01/2009


We are advocates of appropriate and humane tethering practices both inside and outside the home that take into consideration the breed of the dog, the age of the dog, the purpose for which the dog is being trained, the environment and the weather.
 
In many cases, tethering is the only humane containment method for dogs that are expected to perform tasks in hostile environements such as hunting dogs, stock dogs, sledding dogs and police/military dogs. For dogs that are required to master difficult tasks in extreme conditions it would be inhumane and abusive to deny the dog to acclimate to the climate, terrain and environment in which it must master.
