Q: States passing laws for chained dogs.

Nevada just passed a law that people can't keep dogs chained in their yards for days at a time. Are other states doing this also?

Texas is trying to get a tougher law passed but it has a lot of opposition from breeders & hunters. Many cities are passint their own laws while waiting to get a state law in place. You can probably get up to the minute info on where states stand on their anti-chaining legislation by going out to one of the following sites:

i live in the md/dc/va area && to answer your question yes there is a law stating that you can not live your animal chainned outside. In order to have a registered animal like a dog, you must have a proper fenced in yard. The Animal Shelters come out and inspect your yard before the adoption process. I think it is horrible to chain your dog outside. All states should have a law saying that people cant chain their dogs outside.

If not they should! I knew someone who did this, it was awful, poor dog never was let in the house, we called animal control and they gave up "custody" of the dog, who was later adopted out to a really nice family.

I don't know if other states are doing it or not, but I think it is a wonderful idea. I hate to see a dog at the end of a chain. How would you like to spend your life like that? I know that North Carolina allows people to chain their dogs, and I hate it. I would never chain one of mine.
