Outlaw Tethering of Dogs in Gulf County, Fl

Chained dogs suffer from the weather, from boredom and loneliness, lack of socialization and other neglect.  Dogs are social animals and they should not be chained outside 24/7.  A dog should never be leashed or tethered unsupervised.

Tethered dogs are often neglected and ignored until it is too late.  They often suffer dehydration, starvation, ingrown collars or chains as well as injury from other animals.  Most dogs are chained or tethered as a solution to keeping it in the homeowners yard.  Without fencing dogs tend to wander and seek the company of other dogs.  This creates a problem for neighbors. 

If you cannot or will not provide a safe place for your dog as you do your children, perhaps you should reconsider having one.  

If Gulf County is touting themselves as a pet friendly community, why does it still allow the archaic chaining of dogs?  Call or email your county commissioner today.  850-229-6112  bocc@gulfcounty-fl.gov
