Happy Hump Day everyone! I hope your week is going well so far! Yesterday and today it's going to be in the 70's and then back to the 90's we go. Ugh.....
So when I was growing up, no one thought anything about tying dogs outside to run around. I think we had a long chain for our wire hair fox terrier so she could be outside but she was a runner so we couldn't just let her off leash. These days, tethering like this, we know can be dangerous where the dog can choke themselves. They have different setups now though like the tethers that run along what looks like a clothes line so it doesn't tangle around their neck. I was in the hardware store yesterday and I was amazed how many tethers there were for dogs in there! I honestly didn't think people did that any more.
Question of the Week: What do you think about tethering? Have you done it or would you do it? How about tethering in front of a store while you run inside real quick?
