Do dogs hate being chained up?

Most dogs hate being chained up, and will do anything to escape. They will bark excessively, jump up and down, and even try to bite the chain in half. However, some dogs actually enjoy being chained up if they are given the occasional treat or attention. These dogs usually have a lot of energy and love to run around, so being chained up gives them a chance to release all that energy. In addition, they tend to be very social animals, so being chained up near their owner gives them a sense of companionship. Either way, it is important to make sure that your dog has plenty of food, water, shelter and attention if you do decide to chain them up.

It’s something most of us have probably seen at least once in our lives – a dog chained up in someone’s yard with no shelter, no toys, and no way to escape the elements. While it’s not illegal in many places to keep a dog chained up, it’s certainly not humane. Dogs are social creatures that crave companionship, and they suffer greatly when denied this basic need. When big storms roll in or temperatures drop, chained dogs are especially vulnerable. That’s why rescues across the country work tirelessly to find these forgotten dogs and get them off the chains for good. If you see a dog chained up in your neighborhood, don’t just walk away – reach out to a local rescue and see if there’s anything you can do to help. Together, we can make sure that all dogs have a chance at a happy life.
