Chaining is dangerous and cruel

Chained dogs make up 25% of fatal dog attacks(AHS). Chained dogs are 2.8 times more likely to attack. The most common victim of dog attacks are children. The CDC found that of 50 children 1 year or older who were killed by dogs 28% wondered to close to a chained dog. Chained female dogs in heat can be repeatedly raped by multiple males (unwanted litters). Dogs require socialization as a basic need (much like food, water and shelter). To not provide one of the most basic needs amounts to nothing short of animal cruelity!

      My dog was attacked being chained up and she had no way of defending herself or getting away from the larger mean dog.

      Dogs are companion animals. Not your cheap alarm system. They should be treated with all the respect a living being deserves!
