Dog Tethering Banned In Hall County, GA

Paws Up!
November 17, 2018

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.

    Way to go Georgia!! Keep pushing for more laws against other animals too. No animal deserves to be treated or live in any inhumane setting. Put yourself in the animals place and ask would I like to live this this??

      I would rather live outside on a cable where I could run around all day than to stay cramped up in a little crate/cage inside a house all day. Especially one of the stakes that allow the dog to run in a circle without getting tangled up.

    {address redacted} needs to be addressed.. they have a fenced yard AND a dog on a run inside that fenced yard.

      Hi Kim,

      Please inform your local animal control and request a welfare check of the dog’s condition. It is possible that the owners have the dog on a run because he or she may be able to jump or scale the fence. In any case, it is inhumane and the owners should find another solution.
