To councilmembers in Hall County, Georgia, for banning continuous dog tethering.
Tethering for prolonged periods of time creates many adverse effects on a dog’s well-being. A dog who lives outside on a chain is subjected to physical harm from other animals, disease, hypothermia, heatstroke, and strangulation. Not to mention the emotional stress and dangerous behavior issues that occur from being confined to one spot 24/7. Laws to restrict tethering for prolonged periods of time or banning altogether are becoming more common in counties throughout the U.S. According to a recent news article, residents in Hall County, Georgia, will no longer be allowed to tether their dogs starting November 1, 2018. The Board of Commissioners in Hall County, Georgia, unanimously passed an ordinance to ban unsupervised tethering to create a more humane life for the dogs who live there.
