On Dog Chaining: Dog advocates [in OH] asked the City Commission on Wednesday to limit how long city residents can chain dogs in yards.

Though in Dayton, OH, this still has much relation to all areas. Chaining dogs is a disgusting and cruel practice. Can you imagine being chained somewhere your whole life?! A terrible proposition. When it gets cold, you cannot move, and you’ll likely suffer injury or death. Basically, you’re stuck where you are and you receive no affection and have no hope. A desolate existence.

DAYTON | Dog advocates asked the City Commission on Wednesday to limit how long city residents can chain dogs in yards.

The advocates came in response to the temperatures in December that caused at least one dog to die of exposure while chained in a yard.

"The main goal is to stop the 24/7 (chaining), the dogs that are chained their whole lives," said Rhonda Houston of Miamisburg, who was in the group requesting the change.

City Manager Jim Dinneen asked the group to take their recommendation to the county animal resource center to negotiate a countywide policy all communities could adopt simultaneously.
