Noted and signed. These poor dogs, they are so sociable. This is no life for them being tied up and ignored. Why do people even get a dog and do that. Our dogs are such a wonderful part of our lives, can't imagine our lives without them, we are the lucky ones to have them.

Animals are our friends and this is not how you treat a friend, because if it was the other way around they would not do this to us!!

Abolutely signed!! Domestic animals are very social. Even cats have their social moments needing companionship. They are partners, friends, family. They are not *property* and should not fall within property ownership legislation.

Tethering is abusive. Dogs are not lawn ornaments. No one should have the right to treat them as such.

Of course they attack people, they are miserable! If you are going to own an animal, do NOT tie it up. What's the point of having an animal COMPANION if you are gonna keep it outside, constantly tied up? It is just plain wrong. Those people don't deserve animals. I used to tether my dogs, but I didn't have a fence and they wanted to be outside. So they got to go out and run around for an hour or two while tethered. They didn't live out there! The rest of the time, they were inside where they belonged. Now we have 5 acres and they run around wild and free anytime they want (: Signed and noted.

Noted & signed. I do not see the point of a pet dog if all the owner does is chain them in the yard. My little treasure is in the house and garden with us and it is great to see her playing and then she comes for a cuddle. Can't get that if she's chained up.

noted and signed. Of course, dogs which are not socialised and cut off from people in this way will be more likely to be aggressive. And it's very cruel to isolate dogs in this way. Why have a dog anyway, if you just want to tether it outside ?

I have (good) memories of living in Tallahassee FL., but this is not good news. I signed this petition, Simone. Thanks!!
In Austin, TX.,, a bill signed into law after the 2007 legislative session put some restrictions on tethering dogs, including making it a Class C misdemeanor to leave a dog within 500 feet of a school or in extreme weather, such as freezing temperatures or during a heat advisory. There is an ordinance that punishes owners who chain their dogs with fines of up to $500. Dogs kept mostly outside must have an enclosure — such as a fence — with a minimum of 10 by 15 feet for each adult dog. Unfortunately....a lot of rural areas do not comply, or care for their pets.
